Holy crap, I just realized that last week was the 10th anniversary of my first ever post on here! Time flies when you get old!
I haven’t really been keeping up with the blog so much lately. By which I mean the last five years or so. I’ve become a father twice over during that time period and I haven’t even touched a retro video game in two years. Not because I don’t like them, I love them now as always, but parenting (and full time job-ing) is busy work. I like to flip through the old posts from the heyday of this blog about 7 or 8 years ago and reminisce about what having free time to play games and blog about them was like:)
Mind you, my oldest is now five years old and getting to that age where I’m thinking I might introduce him to the Famicom, which might give me something to write about on here again! Or not. The weird thing about becoming a parent is that you start thinking like your parents used to when you were a kid. I’m wrestling with all sorts of angst about whether I even want my kid playing video games. Of course the ones I had when I was a kid are great, but what if this is some gateway to him getting his face glued to a screen 24/7 like all them other young folk are?
I feel so old!
Anyway, hi everybody who is still out there! Hope you have a merry Christmas and happy new year.
