About RetroGaming with Racketboy

1Up Best Gaming SitesRacketboy.com is an independent video game site that caters to the old-school console gamer and their unique gaming lifestyles.

While we still play “modern” consoles, we tend to keep our older systems and make the most of them.

Retrogaming with racketboy was established in 2004 and has since grown gradually to become one of the leading independent sources for old-school gaming news, information, and discussion.

Even though racketboy covers a relatively niche set of topics, the site has been featured numerous times on many mainstream gaming and technology sites such as 1UP (and featured on their 101 Favorite Gaming Sites)  Digg, Slashdot,  Game Informer, GamePro, Retro Gamer Magazine,  Fark, WebbAlert, WIRED, Joystiq, Kotaku, and Ars Technica.
