Vintage arcade goodness!

While waiting for the last votes to come in on the "ink or no ink" dilemma, why not enjoy some vintage arcade games online?

Its funny: while I can appreciate the graphics and options of modern gaming platforms like PS3, Xbox, etc, I have little patience for them. Unlike something like Galaga, for instance, that can eat up several hours (and several pints, have you tried Magic Hat's Vinyl Lager yet, btw?) of a boring night...

While I heartily recommend the little battery operated joysticks you can plug into your tv, here's some links to some vintage arcade goodness you can play in your internet browser:

Space Invaders







  1. What I have been looking for is Gauntlet...Elf shot the food!

  2. Either I am getting old, or that Galaga game runs a bit faster than the arcade version.

  3. Ewww, I just had a flashback to 1983. Thanks Al, very cool. I forgot how bad I was at these games and still don't know why people ever liked pacman.

  4. Been haunting your blog and other old school rpg blogs for a little while, I'm trying to get into the whole tabletop thing. Sounds like your evening was a lot like many of mine, I'm a big retro gamer and Galaga is a favorite of mine, I also love beer (Vinyl Lager looks interesting).
