What's your favorite system and game?

Oh man! Soo tough! I think I'll have to go with the Sega Master System. I am bias, as that was my first console. But I have nothing but love for the NES. It's like choosing a favorite child...everyone has one but sometimes it hurts to admit it. My *current favorite game as of now is Pipe Dream.

What do you enjoy about retro video gaming?

*Disclaimer* I love and respect all gaming and systems. The advances in gaming technology makes me extremely proud.....I just have a soft spot for Retro Gaming <3 I enjoy the challenges of the ambiguity at times, the music, the graphics and the overall game play. I feel many games are out of touch. I enjoy playing a video game because it takes me to a fantasy world. I am not looking for my character to be 100% life like all the way down to the cleavage jiggling or maybe the 5 o'clock shadow. I am always curious to check out new games and the latest creations. I'm also diggin all these indie games and developers...I like their style! But something about the older games....I keep playing them after all these years. Take me to a dream world....take me on a vivid adventure!

What type of meetups, activities and events are you looking to do with us :) ?

ANYTHING console and retro and even current gaming related. Also hoping to just hang out and plan other activities that do not have to always be gaming related. Movies? Local events, cons, good old fashion get togethers :)


I've been gaming for over 25 years, mostly playing those same old games that have never gotten old. I'm extremely thankful for an older brother who let me tag along, never showed me how to block, or show me mercy when gaming. I kick his ass now :)
