    Damn!

    When I was a game tech I designed a setup that supported about 90% of the traditional games with the hopes I would build it some day. I would still like to because I miss some of the old school games like Twin Eagle and Ajax.

    Ahh, the good old days, when you didn't need a credit card to play arcade games.

    Exactly what I was thinking. You know whenever a girl comes to his place the first thing she thinks is "Welll THIS is going to have to change..."

    wow, do the neighbors complain if people are playing all of them at once? Coming back from a ride one time in Ohio, my friend started this racing game in one of the highway rest stops and it must of had the volume maxed out because it was echoing through the whole building which included a full size food court. It was loud as hell. it would be cool to play them all at once at max volume is all im saying.

    I spy a neon sign that says "Internet". I doubt a woman has set foot in that place in many moons.

    I don't see a Zaxxon or Galaga stand-up.

    Joust FTW! :weee: I totally geeked out just seeing all those old games, its been years since I've seen most of those. Probably about the same time I discoverd "girls".

    I like fusball too.

    But I was the champ of Final Lap at the arcade when I was in grade 8. I'm sure Toshi would have kicked my ass though.

    Yeah, he started collecting them, then found he could make a buck on servicing/restoring.

    He doesn't keep them on all the time, still I'm sure it's sizeable:)

    You may be surprised to know what some females levels of patience are with a guy who has some dough......:D


    Galaga yes, Zaxxon he has, but not as it's own stand up. It's on a stand up that has like 500 games loaded in it.

    Yeah, if I had any beef with his place(which I don't) it would be more pinball games. I really like addams family. However, he does have 4 pinball machines and that is satisfactory

    there's a place at Weirs Beach in New Hampshire called Funspot that has an ENORMOUS collection of working 80's video games. a couple of buddies and i go up at least a couple of times a year to relive our wasted childhood.

    Mame / Mame 32 is a PC video game emulator that has almost all of the old arcade games. Hundreds of them. Find a copy, it's a blast. And it does not require an install. You can run it from CD, USB drive, etc.
