It does my heart good...

Every week at the flea market, I set up a console on display to draw in visitors.  Today was the Atari Vader's day in the sun.

 

One my favorite things about what I do is seeing young kids pick up those old controllers and see their eyes light up.  It doesn't take long before they crack a big ol' smile.  It probably isn't as magical for this generation of technology, but you can tell the spirit of those games are timeless.

It's really kind of funny how you have to explain how to use a joystick to kids, as no modern system uses one.  It's kind of like a rotary dial phone...they have no clue.  Luckily, it just takes a moment to explain and understand.

Funny you should say that Rick, they held the sticks fine...but when I told them they had to use the reset switch to start the game it blew their mind.
