Nostalgia for games of my youth

I fondly remember Pacman.  A friend and I would happily spend hours seated on either side of a game console at our local bowling club chasing those dots around the screen.  30 or so years ago, Space Invaders was the biggest game around – that was my husband’s favourite.  What was yours?  Do you feel nostalgia for the games of your youth?     

Look what I've found….
