Hi all

Just wondering if anybody else shares the retro gaming hobby..

Tell me I'm not the only one! Lol :-)

Seriously, just looking to meet other like minded gamers/hobbyists/collectors :-)

Cheers

Nik

Could you be more specific? Talking about MUD's/rogue/text based or board games or SNES or what?

I started off with the emulators, then progressed to collecting the machines and games. I enjoy emulators, as it gives me a chance to try the games before I buy them :-)
