3575ArticleHoju KoolanderYou're video game stories are always the best. This doesn't beat your Nintendo story for strange acquisitions (no prisoners had a Genesis to sell this year, huh?) But it definitely wins for best emotional roller coaster and happy ending. Like so many of us here, I can relate on the divorced parents at holidays deal, but luckily my Mom's boyfriend's grandson was a cool kid and became one of my best friends, which helped smooth over the weirdness. Dec 13, 2016View

3150ArticleVaporman87You've got everything from horribly gaudy (Christmas Vacation, A Christmas Story) to simple but special (Charlie Brown Christmas). A very nice selection here Hoju. My favorite is, of course, Charlie Brown's. Nowadays you can even purchase an actual reproduction of his tree for displaying in your home, complete with one single ornament.

3613ArticlemickyarberYou've hit the nail on the head here talking about the "other" side of Christmas. Like I wrote in an old article, for years and years I always put on my wish list a rock tumbler and a chemistry set that I saw in the Sears Wish Book, but I never got them. On the flip side, I usually got things I liked from relatives. I didn't have many that I got stuff from, but the ones I did, did a pretty good job.Christmas 64Dec 20, 2016View
2478ArticleVaporman87You've really brought back to mind all the wonderful things we miss about an arcade in the 80's and 90's in great and loving detail. It's funny how, in a time before the internet and worldwide connectivity, your experience in one arcade will be the same in so many ways in another hundreds of miles away. Like the routine of plopping down your quarter for "next". Such things transcended distance and social environment differences. And, each felt like it's own little "club". As though there was a camaraderie that was implied any time you crossed the threshold onto that gaudy carpeted floor. Many places that house arcades now are simply dens of rip-offery. Insert a dollar to play a game that is rigged to prevent you from winning that Nintendo DS calling out to you from behind the glass. In Gatlinburg, Tennessee I saw a glimmer of hope. An arcade with a machine that combined the greatness of the past with the redemption craze of today. A giant Pac Man game that played like the classic, but was recrafted to make the goal winning as many tickets as you could. The more points, the more tickets. If they could do this with several hundred more classic titles, an whole new arcade concept could be invented. But so far that is the only title I've seen to incorporate that idea.

1879ArticleVaporman87You've really hit a groove now fuschnikt. Great read! This had to have been a great birthday part. Dino Riders were really cool toys. It was a toy line that I always wished I had more of. My brother actually had several, and we would play with them extensively when the mood struck us. Boglins were another property I had none of. But my friend's Boglin made it's way into at least one of our homemade movies. LOL. I have no doubt that our investigative members can find out what some of those other goodies are.

213ArticleVaporman87You've refreshed my memory with that mention of Cyborg Justice! My brother and I had a fairly enjoyable time customizing our bots in that game. I wish there had been a wider variety of customizations, but for what it was it managed to entertain us for hours. That "footbrawl" game looks like something that was developed by the people behind Rampage and Arch Rivals. A great read, thanks for for this!Obscure Gaming Legacy Volume 2Jan 26, 2013View
