Jeff Parsons of Q97.9 Radio, describes his trip to ReplayFX and how it helped him relive his childhood memories and live current gaming dreams.

Walking into this convention center was like someone bringing my childhood back to me. I saw and played video arcade games I hadn’t seen in years. I played Atari, Nintendo, ColecoVision. I met the people who made these classic games. I played pinball with some of the greatest players in the world. I had an amazing time!
