Welcome to Pixels

Hello and welcome to my new site.  I have been playing arcade and video games for years, starting with games from the birth of gaming.  Games are a great way to forget your troubles and just escape for a while.  I remember playing Intellivision with my dad. He was terrible but he loved to play.  At 90 he still will play a pinball machine and I love to watch it.  My parents owned a Hallmark store in Iowa and there was an arcade right down the shopping center, the convenience store we rode our bikes to had a Donkey Kong and a Pleiades, we ate at this buffet that had a little arcade with a bowling game, Space Invaders, Pac Man and Galaxian, Chuckie Cheese was new, and the roller rink and a ton of games too.  Everything has changed now.  Kids play video games that just aren't meant for kids, everyone has a phone (yes I am guilty), and arcade games are going to the dump........

 

A few years back I asked my wife for an arcade game for my birthday.  She got me a missile command and may be regretting that decision.  Since then I have bought and refurbished a ton of games.  My son and daughter play them and watching their friends come over and play these games brings back a lot of memories.  So I decided to start selling some games, buying more games, and it has taken on a life of its own.  I have saved countless games from being broken, decrepit, ugly, mistreated, or taken to the dump.  I have probably recycled tons of equipment turning it from junk to a beautiful piece of history.  Yes I said history.....anyone that doesn't believe that these games have not shaped our culture needs to go back and read some history books and brush up on pop culture.  

 

I have a lot of work to do on the site, am just staring a charity (Pixels for kids) to bring games to kids that are in need of some fun, and am adding new items every day. I currently work on and refurbish pinball and arcade games all types.  I have started making Mods for pinball machines (That is a ton of fun btw).  My goal is to build, save and share the arcade gaming experience with as many people as I can.  I will be posting repair logs, videos, and all kinds of stuff here.  If you get on the mailing list and want to see updates I will be sure you get them!
