Retro Gaming
#11
Retro games rock.

I have a pretty decent (though not complete) Atari 2600 cartridge collection. I have a pile of other vintage consoles and early PCs in the collection. I always buy those $20 re-issues that have 4 or 5 games loaded in a joystick that you connect to your TV set. That is how I discovered Bosconian.

I scoured ebay to get a working Sega Genesis just so I could play Toe Jam and Earl.

I'm also into the real vintage coin-operated machines. I have Tempest, Asteroids, Space Invaders, and Galaga tables, and a couple of pinball machines. Tempest is the one video game in the bunch that simply cannot be emulated - you've gotta have that vector (EDIT: not raster!) display to really get sucked into that game.

The Atari Complete collection for iPad is pretty decent, at least for the titles whose controls map well to the touchscreen.
