    I don't consider myself a video gamer. I did buy an xBox One
    to be able to play with my kids, but I'm more of a tabletop
    person - board games, x-wing miniatures game, RPG's, etc.

    Yeah, hubby and I bought a newfangled Atari 2600 with about 100 of the classics built in and 2 wireless Atari-style joysticks for about $45. Pretty cool. It can also take the old 9 pin Atari controllers as well :)

    I've thought about that for nostalgia purposes, since I grew up with the
    Sears Entertainment Console (Sears branded Atari - and that was BEFORE
    it was called the 2600 - yep, I'm THAT old - LOL).

    Sears was notorious at rebranding things back then, especially cameras and electronics. Almost seemed like you could pry the Sears label off and reveal the maker's logo.
