Retro Video Game Show and Swap Meet Coming to Michigan
If you are into classic video games and gaming systems, there is a retro video game show coming to Michigan.
Retro Video Games
I remember back in the day burning through Nintendo Zapper guns while playing Duck Hunt on a Nintendo gaming system. It was the first shooting game where you used a special controller that looked and worked like a gun.
You cannot get any more retro than the video game Pong. This was one of the most basic video games there is with a simple black backdrop with slider controls hitting a ball back and forth similar to tennis. I played this game for many hours with my friends and at the time we loved it.

Maybe you have some old gaming systems in the basement or attic you would like to get rid of or maybe purchase more to add to your collection. Perhaps you are still playing the old retro games and would like to show off your skills.
