Memoirs of an Arcade Kid

Written by Jughead, published July 30th, 2009. 5 comment(s).

I've been a gamer since I was a little boy. Started out on the Atari 2600, a 386, and the local pizza place and arcade. I always loved arcade games and pinball and that love carried over into my console collection and obsession. I just recently got my first pinball machine after owning an Aliens arcade cabinet for awhile and building a PC MAME cabinet for other games. I purchased Big Brave off a friend for 200 bucks and have set out on the task of cosmetically restoring it (works great, looks bad). During my current journey my interest has been peaked and I am now scouring the classifieds and looking around the net for pinball games of my youth, and some I've maybe never played. Hopefully I can make enough room to continue growing my collection and hobby of arcade cabinet and pinball playing.
