In this time of staying at home and keeping ourselves busy, having a hobby could be the one thing keeping you sane. I've talked about the two hobbies I have. One of those hobbies has certainly kept me entertained while I've been inside, retro video games.

I collect retro video games. Specifically for the Nintendo, PlayStation 1, 2 and 3 and those great mini consoles that have been released. Sure, there are options to have all of those mini consoles in one box but I love the collectible, and functional, aspect of them. I currently have the Nintendo, Super Nintendo, PlayStation and Sega Genesis mini consoles. All of them are modded with additional games. The white box in the picture below is the Super Retrocade. That box contains some of my favorite arcade games of the late 80's and early 90's like The Simpsons, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, X-Men and more.

Also, too, I own a Nintendo, PlayStation 1, 2 and 3 consoles, and collect games for all three. I currently have about 30 games for the Nintendo, 15 for the PlayStation, 10 for the PlayStation 2 and about 20 for the PlayStation 3. During this time of staying at home, it's been great to sit down and revisit all these consoles and their great games.

To be honest, I'm actually having a blast during this quarantine time. Hopefully you have a hobby that keeps you entertained like mine. If not, now would be the perfect time to find one.
