So, you've made it far enough down the rabbit hole that you're now joining forums? :lol:

Do you own any classic Nintendo consoles? NES, SNES, N64? Or just classic Sega?

Thanks! I only have a N64 that I was gifted by a friend and he included Mario 64, Goldeneye, and Killer Instinct Gold so some solid stuff. I actually got it for my oldest son since he's really interested in it. I'll pick some stuff up for it maybe this summer. I don't really have a big thing for the classic Big N stuff (not consoles but I do have a GameBoy Pocket and GameBoy Color though). I know the NES and SNES both have tons of hits and classics but haven't felt inclined...yet to hunt down games like I do the Sega stuff :lol:. I do have a NES Classic and SNES Classic to scratch the itch though and I've also given serious thought to buying a Super NT so I'll see where that goes :lol:.

I stumbled across the Racket Boy main page a couple of months ago when I came across some of the guides for the Genesis and Saturn in a web search one day (hey I'm a Sega guy). I can't say that I'd ever see myself signing up for game forums in 2020 (but I did join Sega-16 earlier this year too) but this seems like a very cool place as well.

Also wanted to say welcome to Racket Boy! I'm a big Sega fan too and have been picking up mostly 16-bit games the past few years. But it's great that another person into Sega is on the forums. I also registered for Sega-16 earlier this year, but I couldn't get my account activated by the admins to post. Anyway, glad to have another member on the forum.

Look forward to discussing everything Sega and video game related!

it's my first post here!

I'm more a 16-bit guy, in the sense that my first gaming opportunity has been on the Amiga (an A500+), when I was 9. After few time I realized I also enjoyed creating my own games!
Few years later I got also an A1200 and many year later I purchased also an used A2000 (even if it was much less powerful, I had to have it!)

I love retro-games and retro hardware too, as I feel there was much more low level optimization, than today.

I'm also developing an open source retro gaming console, as I always dreamed of designing my own gaming hardware, where I can develop my own games :).

Been foruming for 10 years now, ever since I got an internet connection worth a darn.

I'm a singer/songwriter, avid gamer (since 1987) and general appreciator of aesthetics.

I have severe social anxiety which I thought would go away once I was nearing 40 and typically get told that I don't look like I'm nearing 40. Hello, human people!

Edit: The Screen Name means "Very much like a spoon" in Japanese. "Saji" is the word for "ceramic soup spoon," whereas a piece of silverware is referred to as its English variant ("supun"). Aka "spooniest."
