This game was the fuckin best. Can't wait for the new one!

My wife is excited. She wants to buy a Switch just so she can play that and the new Zelda game. I feel like that's a waste of 300 dollars, but she's pretty adamant about it. She plays AC on her 3DS almost daily and has for years now, so... I guess she'd get her money's worth lol

It's a super addictive game. The switch could replace her 3ds, as it is portable...maybe sell it to cut back on the cost. There's a ton of great games on switch. If she likes Animal Crossing she should try Stardew Valley. I fuckin love that game, and it's very similar to AC.

Burger time. some insane old school fun. I think I made it to level 5. Which isnt that far. But hard as fuck
That's the arcade version (running on M.A.M.E.), right?

The arcade versions of most of the games of this era were wicked hard. The formula at Midway was to have all but the most skilled player have to drop another quarter in under 3-5 minutes. I still enjoy the arcade games a LOT!

Do you have a Arcade Joystick peripheral ? They really make the games play like an actual machine, I made mine back around 1998 or so and its still running strong, so it was a good investment in effort. They're pretty widely available now and reasonable in price.

sometime it all depends on the seriousness of the game situation, if we're serious than no
lol yeah, we would be really serious for hours and hours. Then if we needed a break we would just play a ridiculous game like jaws vs odd job with only knifes or mines or something

Hell yeah. On a "hacked" Playstation, to run the Japanese-only game.


Still some of the best one-liners in video game history.


Ahhh, the 8086. The last time I ever played games with my dad.


Came free with my subscription to Nintendo POWER! magazine!
That one, Final Fantasy, and Zelda 2 were the first non-Mario/Duck Hunt games I had for my NES when I was 10 or so.


Obligatory old guy/hipster system... still have it, still works... PRESS PLAY ON TAPE

Mannnnn... I was digging through my old stuff getting ready to move, found all my old computer games; the whole Command and Conquer series, Battle for Middle Earth (both with the expansion), the first Age of Empires game, a 14 day trial I never used for Star Wars Galaxies lol. And even an old Oregon Trail disc from the 90s. Not sure I can even use that now lol, I still have a disc drive on both my desktops, but Windows 7 and newer OS always needs weird patches to play these older games.
