Good Old Days

There is nothing like the good old days of Arcade Machines to bring back those innocent memories of sneaking away with a pocket full of quarters to see how long you would last. I would be hooked on Pac-Man and NBA Jam. The bodega that used to be up the block from me, had NBA Jam, and I would be in there all the time Destroying dudes with the Lakers...Anthony Peeler and Nick Van Exel were beasts. Now we rarely see arcade's like those, since the Next Generation of Gaming has taken over. Not that I don't love video games now, but back then was just so much simpler.

I decided to talk about this because I saw that "Tekken 6" is being released, and along with it will be a throwback, old school arcade Controller, and it just made me think back to the good old days. But this doesn't look to shabby.
