Post proof that you're passing retro on to the kids!

by Stark Thu May 12, 2011 1:27 am

Hey all, I saw a post of dsheinem's of his kid (I think it was) playing with a Super Advantage controller and thought it would be fun to post pics of your kids playing with retro stuff. Here's my daughter playing with an original Gameboy, she doesn't know what to do with it yet, but loves the noises it makes! :D

I don't have any pictures (it would have been mightily weird), but I let little 4/5/6 year old kid sitting next to me on the train play around with Link's Awakening on my GBC for about 30 minutes. Felt bad taking it back when it was my stop...

I can promise that when I have a kid, his/her first word will be "SEGA!"

Anybody ever tell you your kid looks just like you? Because he does. He's mini-SpaceBooger.

My 6 month old likes to bang on the control panel of my candy cab, I still need to take a pic. My 3 year old nephew comes over and I let him play Space Harrier. Good game for kids cause they can move all over the screen like crazy

for me i think im gonna start my kids at SNES and Genesis era and move up from there.
considering i have a decent amt of games for both console. Also 16bit era was something magical to me and hopefully for them too. :wink:
