Hello from Florida!


Recommended Posts

Hi all!  I had been reading on the Atari.io site but had not realized there were forums so I decided to join once I discovered them!  I'm a big time retro game gamer and collector.  My collection goes from retro to modern:  Atari 2600, Atari 5200, Atari 7800, Atari Lynx, Atari Jaguar, Mattel Intellivision, Vectrex, NES, Sega Genesis, Sega Dreamcast, Xbox (original), Nintendo GameCube, GBA, Nintendo DS, PSP, PS4, and Retron N5. I also have a portable 2600 and a Sega Nomad. 


My first system was the Atari 2600 all those years ago and I was mostly an Atari guy early on.  I didn't get other systems until later on.  Atari systems are still my favorites but I do admit the Sega systems are also awesome to play on. 


Over the years I have gotten more involved in the retro video game community and I have written reviews for games and books.  My most recent review if the review for that fantastic book from Tim Lapetino, The Art of Atari.  You can check that out here:  http://tinyurl.com/zexkux5


I look forward to participating in the forum and getting to know folks here.

Hey Trek! Welcome to a great, friendly forum.

And I didn't know you were from Florida! I lived in central Florida for over a decade before I recently moved.

Thanks!  Yep, in Miami.  Been here for 25 years now.  :)

Welcome to the forums TrekMD!! It's fantastic to have you join us! I recognize you from elsewhere around the web, so happy you found your way to Atari I/O!!  :wreck-it-ralph:



Thanks for the welcome.  From reading around I can see that this is indeed a friendly place and devoid of people who love drama and insults.  That's a good thing!  It gets old reading threads that degenerate into stupid arguments for no reason.



I think you're really going to like it here! There is a very friendly, positive feel to this community with lots of great people and fun events. Our members seem like the most awesome classic gamers you could find, everyone is friendly and trusting and it's led to some great trades, fun events, retro junk boxes, and lots more. Everybody is here because they really want to be, and it's resulted in a great community. I hope you enjoy your time here!!
