Childhood

Post by ZXSabreman » Fri Jul 03, 2015 5:12 am

Not sure if this has been covered before but what games mean something to you, games you have fond memories of from back in the day. I have been gaming a long, long time first computer was a ZX81 since then never looked back. The ZX81 and Spectrum are part of me, so are vintage toys like Star Wars and Action Man, owning them makes me happy.
I made something that I now have hanging in my dining room which I have claimed as a bit of a man cave, it's where I do my gaming and have some of my vintage stuff on display.

Hope you enjoy the pictures I just thought some of you retro gaming lovers might appreciate them, everything in the frames are from my childhood and mean everything to me.

Your Spectrum wall display is epic. I would love one of those. :D

Very neat, I've been thinking of something similar for my original Oric since it's a bit temperamental now. I hadn't thought of mounting some games around it, I like that idea, some classic artwork.

As much as I love my old games, I would never consider mounting them :shock:

Yeah, there's some seriously nice stuff there.

And ZXSabreman that is a really neat set-up, and a great talking point when friends come round.

i used to have the Nazi stormtrooper Action Man with Iron cross medal. That's so fucked up when you stop and think about it.
