Sure, I used it for a few rounds of Mogul Maniac when I was a kid. :lol: You can use it for other games too, but it doesn't work very well.

At this point, I'd be hesitant to allow a full-grown adult to climb aboard the Joyboard, but depending on the condition of yours you'd probably be okay using your feet to control it while you sat on a chair so that your full weight wouldn't be on an almost 3 decades-old piece of plastic. Not the full Joyboard experience of course, but you'd get the idea.

I'd have to say a tie between my atari 2600, my indigo gba (which is my first video game thing ever), my cib super gameboy for snes, and my ps1 final fantasy collection.

I think the most prized object that I have is my Japanese 3D saturn pad, which is boxed and included a mint copy of christmas nights. Its the one and only thing that I've bought just for the pleasure of owning. It mainly just sits in its box but every now and then I get it out to look at it :D

While it has it's own range of games (via a tape deck add on, which a computer can emulate today) it plays standard Mark I carts.

Since I had an extra, dysfunctional Famicom laying around, I painted an NES the appropriate colors, took off the Family Computer face plate and glues it to the front lid, gutted the famicom pad and shoved the NES pad innards inside (not as easy a fit as i would have hoped) and, I even have a famicom to nes adapter to use on the bad boy. Off the top of my head, probably my crown jewel just because no one else in the world probably has one just like mine.

EDIT: Sorry about the shitty pic. I really should take better pictures.


Dude! That is really cool looking NES-mod. :D
And yes, you should take better pics. :P ;)
