You should congratulate me. I destroyed the vile red falcon and saved the universe. I consider myself a hero.

I'm the same way. It's getting harder and hard to organise and store, not to mention maintain, so much stuff. One of these days I need to take a full inventory and make record of it all for insurance purposes.

Your avatar says it all here .  Tecmo Football stuff is one of the rare retro football games that actually hasn't fallen off the table pricewise.  I think people like playing with Bo Jackson who couldn't be tackled .



Hey guys, let's grow Team Retro to get Brett some notice here, so we can get a retro game spot on here, and help set up some retro game tournaments and so on. I would like to get things large enough to be able to also get tournaments set up with scoreground.com . And I want it even larger so I get weekly leaderboards for retro stuff. My end game would be to have a PGA for Pacman. YES, we WILL have it so people can make a living playing Space Invaders and Pacman and Super Mario Bros!



I am thinking I might as well drop this video I wanted to post, in here:

Lol, well good luck with that. Most retro gamers just do it for fun. The only old school game I play semi-seriously is Donkey Kong arcade and I can't only just barely break 90,000.



Atari 800 and Atari ST here.

Some of my childhood favorites: Wizard of Wor, Ali Baba, Archon, Arkanoid.

Nice. I have an Atari 800 XL, but I never had a an ST. I've read it was an amazing machine. I miss the days when computers brands actualy meant different hardware and software like consoles.

 

BTW: What's that Falcom game in your sig? I'm a fan of the Ys series, but I don't know all Falcom games.



My first console was an Atari 2600, and I "grew up" with the NES. I won new consoles, but I would absolutely consider myself an "Old School Gamer". Even on the newer consoles, my fav. titles tend to be the ones that if not blatantly retro styled, at least with "retro" sensibilities, IE games that actually seem like VIDEO GAMES, not playable films.

Well, idea is to find top generalists and promote them.  With my CADERS group on Facebook, I have a number of them actually.  Not seeking to promote one game but retro in general.
