That’s right, you wish you had that kind of geek cred.

Ben and I went to the local Retrocade for his birthday tonight and had a great time. These are all professionally refurbished original consoles, and they play great. The only problem is that in all their nostalgia, nobody ever reminds you about the debilitating wrist cramps that come after an hour of button mashing! Ben bested me at the old Atari Star Wars games AND Street Fighter II, and we are both terrible at Gauntlet.

Damn, you Asteroids and your tiny sniper UFOs. I WILL set the high score, eventually.

Just think, how our kids will feel about Atari is how I feel about Monopoly. HOW WAS THIS ENTERTAINMENT?
