Celebrate Retro Video Game Day with Utica Marketplace Finds
March 8 is National Retro Video Game Day. It is a great day for us all to take a break from our day, chomp a few power pellets, grab a few mushrooms and drink some magic health potions. Hmm...does it seem to anyone else that these video game items might be a metaphor for something?
Maybe you are like me and you plan on firing up the Nintendo Entertainment System and popping in Super Mario Bros. 3. Maybe you are going to rock some Playstation 2 Grand Theft Auto fun. Or maybe you are wondering how you can celebrate when you don't have the right tools. This is when we turn to the internet.
Facebook marketplace can be a treasure trove of many items. And for those looking to celebrate but are woefully unprepared, it may just provide a solution for you here in Central New York. Of course, none of these items have been verified and you should always follow smart practices when buying anything online or from anyone who wants to meet in person.
A true original. A fun tabletop recreation of the classic Pac Man arcade game in Syracuse. The game has generated over 18 billion in sales. It does not get more retro than this.
A Sega Genesis, with its 16 Bit Blast processing beauty is a box to unlock fun. This is a later core system located in Morrisville that has a smaller foot print, which in a world of so many different entertainment boxes in our homes, could be a good thing.
Located in Rome is this awesome Sega Genesis accessory, the Sega CD. This was an add on that allowed you to play additional games. When I see that a box is in tact, that makes me all the happier as a retro game collector. This is the kind of thing I am always on the hunt for. You can never have too many boxed retro gaming items. Especially on this particular holiday.
