About this site
Old schoold gamer view!Anyone who had the pleasure of growing up in the late 80's and early 90's will undoubtedly hold a place in their heart for the old video games that ruled this earth. It was all about having some fun and you didn't need an expensive console or home micro-computer to do so!
