Famicomblog 10th Anniversary

Holy crap, I just realized that last week was the 10th anniversary of my first ever post on here!  Time flies when you get old!

I haven't really been keeping up with the blog so much lately.  By which I mean the last five years or so. I've become a father twice over during that time period and I haven't even touched a retro video game in two years.  Not because I don't like them, I love them now as always, but parenting (and full time job-ing) is busy work.  I like to flip through the old posts from the heyday of this blog about 7 or 8 years ago and reminisce about what having free time to play games and blog about them was like:)

Mind you, my oldest is now five years old and getting to that age where I'm thinking I might introduce him to the Famicom, which might give me something to write about on here again!  Or not.  The weird thing about becoming a parent is that you start thinking like your parents used to when you were a kid.  I'm wrestling with all sorts of angst about whether I even want my kid playing video games.  Of course the ones I had when I was a kid are great, but what if this is some gateway to him getting his face glued to a screen 24/7 like all them other young folk are?

I feel so old!

Anyway, hi everybody who is still out there!  Hope you have a merry Christmas and happy new year.
