Playing video games together was something we always enjoyed. It was a fun night of smack talking back and forth. If it was a fighting game, I usually got my ass handed to me. On the other hand, if it was something like Dr. Mario, Tetris or Q*Bert, I would rule the kingdom.
What started off with us finding an old school Nintendo and collecting the games turned into finding all the old systems and investing in them. We were living our childhood over again.
Sadly though, as we started investing in the newer game system models, like the Nintendo Wii and the Playstation 3, the other game systems started collecting dust. When we moved, we couldn't bear to part with the game systems even though they were no longer being used. We packed them all up in plastic bins and when we unpacked into our house, they got hidden in the deep dark corners of our front closet.

nearly as impressive graphics as we once
remembered. But it was still fun!
I did find it and we pulled out our Sega Dreamcast anticipating a night of alien interaction. Sadly though, we couldn't find the power cord. And with it being an older game system, buying a replacement cord would take time. But I knew we had to have a cord somewhere. And that is when the Playstation 3 came to the rescue. It worked on the Dreamcast. We hooked it up immediately and started a trip down Memory Lane.
We played for a little bit before bed. Our kids were fascinated by such a crazy looking creature. And then my daughter recognized him.
"Hey! He is the funny character from Wreck It Ralph!"
So today, I only have one thing to do on my "To Do" list! I am going to reunite with Q*Bert. Go ahead and laugh, but that game is not only addicting and fun, but it is hard and I can't get passed the first level. So today, Q*Bert and I will be spending quality time together.
