    Legend of Mana [​IMG]. The customization of the map and the battle system was definitely a good shakeup from the traditional turn based stuff Squaresoft was putting out. And the graphics are amazing - definitely wouldn't mind a HD remake of it

    George Romero, who passed away yesterday, directed two commercials for Biohazard 2 in Japan.

    ^^ That outer shell is awesome. I don't think I've ever played an Atari system though.

    I played on the 2600 in the late 90s, but that's it.

    I honestly can't play any video games before the 8-bit generation. They're the definition of struggle. I don't need to play Pong in HD that bad.

    Just got back from Frys electronics and picked up a Hyperkin Retron 1 HD for $40. So far so good! The quality feels good as the only real mishap is with the controller sticker overlay that keeps peeling back. My fault though as it's really hot out today and I had the box sitting in the sun for a little while.

    Now I can let my nephews play without putting mad hours on my OG Nes console.

    For real :lol:. Looks like he has a souped-up TV and a ton of retro consoles but hasn't painted or renovated the rest of the room since the first Atari was out.

    Picked up a few Nes games from a local seller on CL. 4 for $20 so I went for it. They're not the greatest but I didn't have them in my stash-o-games :D

    Is a SEGA Genesis worth anything today?

    I see retro stores sell them around 30-40, I never seen one in the wild tho. I'd say with all the plug and plays sega has put out the system didn't hold much value...there's a current classic at target with 80 games plus you can play original carts
