I wish I could say I do but because of lack of space I could never make it happen.I do have one Street Fighter ll cabinet and a couple home arcades with one pinball machine but i'm at my max.

What pinball machine? :-)
It's a very old home pinball machine called Skyhawk.

First I wish everyone a merry Christmas and happy holidays.

My favorite Christmas gift was given to me by my sister I was just 14 and she was 19.
It was a concert ticket to my favorite band Blue Oyster Cult,I was Shocked I had never been to a concert before.
She had got my mom and dad to agree to letting me go with her. I will never forget it was at the cape cod coliseum we had a awesome night.Sadly we lost her to cancer 2 years ago I miss her everyday.But I will always have the memory of this Christmas gift the best gift I ever got a night out with my sister.I realize this has nothing to do with gaming but it is my best Christmas gift ever.

I play video games between 1 to 3 hours a night during the week and a lot more on weekends.I collect mostly for retro systems but I don't play them as much as I would like because I only have my modern consoles at my girl's house.90% my collection is at my house where one day we will all live.but for now while her kids are still in school I live with my new family here because the school system in her town is better suited to help special needs children.

My son doesn't like to talk about it but I have told him to sell my collection if he needs to. He also has quite a large collection himself and it's not really reasonable to be able to house both collections in one location.But I feel good knowing he can liquidate the collection if he needs to.I also like the idea of donating some of it to other collectors,I have already done this to help out some friends with my extra copies.

Do you feel your son followed in your footsteps with collecting like it being ingrained in him by your collective energy or do you feel it happened naturally regardless? I love.father son stories like this. I know my dad collected die cast cars since I was little. He'd trade me ones of lesser value because as a kid id break the mirrors. But I know collecting has certainly been a passed down pastime. Happy to see another story of that :)
It started as something we could bond over we had a interest in games and we would go game hunting,going out to eat and maybe take in a movie.It evolved into going to concerts when they got older also.i always enjoyed spending time with my kids, it wasn't all about gaming but it definitely brought us closer together.

3 cats and a betta fish.

Scooter is one of my cats and he has cancer. Skin cancer. We just had to cut his 2nd lump off at the vet. He's 12. I'm hoping this is it, but being its the 2nd it's not good. Poor guy has his paw all wrapped up right now.

Kittie is our oldest. 16 and still going.

Candy is the youngest and she's a sweetheart and a fluffball. But she's got a meanstreak when it comes to other cats in the neighborhood.

Sugar is the fish, got it for my daughter after she was upset she couldn't win one at the fair. Candy, the youngest cat, loves the fish. Watches it all day.
I don't have any cats I did as a child but never as a adult. I'm not really a cat person I was attacked when I was younger buy my neighbors cat and that was it for me.But I would never want to wish harm them I wish Scooter the best.And hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
