I grew up in the 80s, so the video arcade holds a special place in my reminiscing. From the simple line drawings of Asteroid and Battle Zone to the existential questions of Frogger (Why does the frog die when it hits the water?), I sang along to “Pac Man Fever” while pushing quarter after quarter into those big black cabinets. If a pizza place wanted my money, all they had to do was put Joust or Tron or Dragon’s Lair in the back. Sometimes I’d even eat.
Whether you’re a hardcore MMORPG fanatic, a console collector, or have built your own MAME cabinet, check out our Video Gaming mugs!
1. Keep calm and…
Though anyone that’s ever had to deal with a camper knows that “calm” is the last thing you feel.
2. What’s this button do?
I long ago lost the coordination to handle modern console controllers. And the patience to learn how to use them. I’m pretty sure some of them require extra fingers.
3. And I never left the couch
I saved two kingdoms, flew a B2 bomber, destroyed an alien nest, and built an amusement park. What did you do this weekend, watch the game?
4. Cheaters Can Win
Say it with me: “Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, Start.”
5. I’d rather be questing
Everyone needs some form of escapism. My personal favorite is single-player puzzle games, such as the Myst series, but I do have a few “hack-n-slash” titles for when I’m in a bad mood.
These are just a few of the great video gaming mugs we have available. Want a mug with your favorite game on it? Your horde roster? Maybe your avatar? We can customize a mug just for you!
