Modern and Retro Gaming at Florida Supercon 2013

Last but not least we found another retro gaming heaven within heaven itself. To the left of Origin PC and across from the console gaming tournaments we found a table featuring a ton of incredible classic games from NES up to N64.

I saw people playing Mario Cart, Strider and an awesome game of Smash Bros.

To his credit he said yes without hesitation.
