And I think I've posted this link before, but if you really want to get that nostalgia going, put on some headphones and listen to the sound files here: http://arcade.hofle.com
Thanks for the nostalgia...
Man there is nothing in the world like the sound of a 1985 arcade.
Kangaroo, Tron, Dig-Dug, Galaga... I mean y'all know.
I am glad I lived when this was a thing also...
I am closing on our house in 2 days... and one of my projects is to have a cocktail table running MAME so I can flipscreen some fuggin Frogger!
