EzE in the place to be! Howdy!

Howdy fellas,

My avatar is an edit of the Tempest logo I made in photoshop. Tempest was one of my favs back. To introduce myself... My name is Eric 'EzE' Liddell. I'm an old skool arcade rat from the 80s. I worked at a mall arcade called 'Fun n Games' during the 'golden age Of Arcades'. I had the keys to all the games and so my buddies and I would close the arcade after work and stay up all night drinkin beer and playing marathon 4 player Gauntlet. lol... good times... good times. So, I'll be poking around here knockin out some scores. first to fall was Joust, Joust2 and Star Trek. (I'm a big Trekkie too). More scores will fall soon! ehehehe EzE is here to take names and eat pie!!!!! blueberry =D

game on,

-EzE

You set your profile avatar not your posting avatar. On the top of the page click on "Settings" then "User Settings". On that screen you'll see "Edit avatar" on the left.

I also grew up playing games at Fun n Games in the 80s, small world huh? You weren't in Natick Mass right?

Ok, cool, thanks for the tip... avatar updated.


Right on, Fun N Games was a franchise owned by Edwards Debartolo in Vegas. He had several arcades in malls throughout the county. I worked at the one in the Mission Viejo mall in Southern California. Think 'Fast Times at Ridgemont High'. type of setting. Tokens were like mall currency. I traded them for everything... food, movies, bribe the security guard if we were in the arcade after the mall closed. ehehe. good times.

Thanks, I had heard about this site but never poked around. I mostly just u/l to MARP and TG. But cool to have another place to play the classics. Last game I played in the arcades was SFII turbo in the early 90s. After that my arcade closed and I stopped gaming for 20 years. Then KoK came out and I went to Funspot X to compete in the Defender/Stargate competition.. That sparked my return to classic gaming in 2008. Glad to be here.-Eric

Re: EzE in the place to be! Howdy!

Great to have you, Eric. I may as well have worked at an arcade in the 80s, because I was in them from opening til close. We had Aladdin's Castle here, and every mom and pop convenience store had at least 1 game. Great scores so far, looking forward to more.

Thanks! I'm dig'in this site. I use to go to Aladdin's Castle too. Great arcade(s) in malls. Every time I went to a new mall I always hoped they had a huge Sega Center or Aladins Castle if not a good ol Fun N Games. - Ez
