Merry Christmas circa 1978!

Merry Christmas/Happy Holidays to everyone involved in this wonderful site. Enjoy the day eating and spending time with your loved ones. Also, thanks so much for the King! I did not expect that one at all!

As for me, I've got some space invaders that need stopping.


Andrew says:
Oh wow. You have been given a gift fit for your regal kingness. Congrats on the king, it was definitely my vote.

Merry Christmas

This is excellent, faved. The my siblings and I were too young for an Atari, and I feel I have missed out somehow. We started with the NES which was enjoyed fully.

@Caronna - What is this Call of Duty you speak of?
@Grimey - Haha, my brother and I were too old for NES! We went right to the Sega Genesis!

@Stanislaw - I was waiting for someone to point out the phone! Good work! Merry Christmas!

That is one of the world's greatest treasures! I bonded with my stepdad over a game of Frogger. I am now reminding myself, "Thou shalt not covet."
