Found pictures of my old Arcade games

I was going through some old boxes and found pictures I had taken back around 2002 of the first arcade machines I ever bought. I paid $200 for them all ($50 each). I would later end up buying 32 more games and then by 2007ish I would have to sell them all to pay bills. I plan to get back into buying and repairing arcade games again soon.

Tim Schafer & Psychonauts 2

I was a huge fan of Double Fine studio and the Psychonauts game and 2 years ago I would of happily bought the game (and donated a large amount) but with how much of a douchebag Tim Schafer turned out to be. I will not spend 1 cent on anything they (Double Fine & Tim Schafer) do anymore. I will not be buying the game even if it hits a flash sale on steam. If I ever end up with the game it will be because I was given the game for free, or I found it for $1.00 used.

This is not my videos I will happily share links to so good videos on why I feel the way I do.
