GADD Goes to the 2016 Socal Retro Gaming Expo!

We got together and checked out the inaugural Socal Retro Gaming Expo at the Frank and Sons building in City of Industry, CA. It was a fun and many games were found. Peep the vid to see what goes through my head on a Saturday.

I long for the days of grade school and high school where I wasted my youth. I know what everyone is thinking right now. “Grandpa Gio won’t shut up about being old”. The funny thing is that I’m not really that old. I’m only 32. I just don’t have time to play video games anymore and it’s killing me. Continue reading Too Old for this Shit
