Retro Gaming

Were there gamers before Pong?  Sure there were.  Checkout these photos of  Wonderland “The World’s Finest Arcade” in Kansas City back in 1968.  Before the digital gaming era emerged this is how gamers did it back in the day.  Now lets pay homage to our gaming ancestors.

 

Pinball is a classic.  I’ve spent a fortune in quarters playing pinball machines in any number of places.  I remember I used to go to the Laundromat with my mom and basically beg for quarters so I could be a Pinball Master.

Something in this picture creeps me out.  Can you guess what it is surely its creeping out other people as well.

Skeet Ball the ultimate game that tests your skills of aim, speed and hand-eye coordination.

  1. What great pictures! They remind of a brief scene in Jaws where some kids are playing some game in an arcade where they try to kill a shark. Say what you will about Tron Legacy, but I think they got the production design just right on the old, out-dated arcade.
