Retro Gaming Feel

Over the weekend, I set up a little area near our front door in order to play video games.

Over Christmas we received the NES and the SNES Minis. We had an old 20″ RCA tv that we were using for a computer monitor. I decided to mount it on the wall and connect the game systems.

The tiny alcove reminds me of the look on a basement from the 1970’s/early 1980’s. The perfect little spot to enjoy some retro gaming. It may sound odd, but it works. It’s also a good little spot to hideout, but still be central in the home.

Now when one of our kids are ready to go out before anyone else, they can occupy their time playing a game. It’ll help keep them out of the way and out of trouble.

    That’s ace! I’ve just got myself a sega meagdrive setup, could do with a nice corner like that, although, I might just end up making a whole retro room.

      This is a great little alcove to sit and play a quick game. We have a theater room where we play our PS4 and the Switch. I’m a huge fan of 80’s and 90’s films and have started decorating the room with prop replicas and posters.

    Excellent video game story! Video gaming has come a long way since the early 90s but its still relatively nice to visit the games from the past and look back with a critical eye. And I hope video games keep them of trouble too.

    I’ve loved video games since I first started playing when I was five on the Intellivision back in 1981/1982. Arcade classics such as Pac-Man are my go-to for a quick game. I’m looking forward to seeing what the Amico system will be like next year. It should be a crossover of retro gaming and modern games which could either be a huge success or an epic failure.
