    Those Genesis prints were from Ed the creator of the games! We drank with him on Friday night with Jay and Eric which was a great time.

  2. Luis23 on April 30, 2022 at 2:00 am

    There’s not so much in Canada

  3. Robert R. aka Roland63 on April 30, 2022 at 2:01 am

    Wait a minute! There’s an arcade in Greenville? I do miss going to them when I was a lot younger! Next year my wife and I might make this convention a weekend event. Have you figured out what that arcade was called?

  4. Stephanie Martin on April 30, 2022 at 2:01 am

    We were glad to be able to speak with you in person, and thank you for taking the time to take pictures. Hope to see you there next year!

  5. el tenda's channel on April 30, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Looks like fun 4 sure

  6. The Game Hunters on April 30, 2022 at 2:04 am

    So nice to see all the YouTubers together! Lot’s of friendly faces and retro gaming goodness 🙂

  7. Random Dubs on April 30, 2022 at 2:04 am

    Man I wish I went it there. It looks really fun I just don’t live in California.

    Im from Greenville, SC but now I live in Oconee, SC I wanted to go to SEGE but my husband didn’t want to I would have loved to meet you and let you know that here in Seneca,SC we have two amazing video game stores that no one in Greenville yet knows about that I think if you have a chance to come next year you should check out they are Play Nest and Computers Plus

  10. Ass Face on April 30, 2022 at 2:07 am

    Thanks for the walkthrough dude ✌️

  11. Ivan & Beli’s World on April 30, 2022 at 2:07 am

    you should go to Japan someday. I think you’ll go crazy

  12. Breaking Brad on April 30, 2022 at 2:09 am

    The Army will never recruit anyone at a game convention lol

  13. What’s In The Box Of Poppy Raine on April 30, 2022 at 2:10 am

  14. SoufCentrol on April 30, 2022 at 2:10 am

    I’m thinking about going to the 2022 convention in a couple weeks. Looks like a good time

  15. Optimus Magnum on April 30, 2022 at 2:11 am

    I’ve been to Pax East before but I really would like to go to these Retro events. It looks like so much fun and I know I would love this. So much nostalgia and fun to have plus meeting some great people and talkin to them about games and life. Thanks for sharing!

  16. Anthony Leonardi on April 30, 2022 at 2:12 am

    It’s loads and loads of crap on tables and people trying to sell it to you. The real reason to go is to meet people with the same hobby.

  17. TheTwoTravelers on April 30, 2022 at 2:12 am

    The best part was seeing all the old systems, something you don’t see everyday. Second best was seeing the arcade, which bought back many memories of playing on them when I was younger.

  18. Evercade Effect on April 30, 2022 at 2:12 am

    Looks like the convention was friggin awesome!

  19. GT500 on April 30, 2022 at 2:14 am

    I voted for Trump

  20. G Funk on April 30, 2022 at 2:14 am

    Looks like a great convention Rick. Love watching your videos. From Ireland 🇮🇪

  21. Snooks on April 30, 2022 at 2:14 am

    oof what was the bitrate on that video? jerkiness during camera panning is giving me a headache. maybe just a slow SD card or something?

  22. Jonathan Miller on April 30, 2022 at 2:15 am

    Hello there good sir!! Great work!!! Keep up the hard work!!! Can’t wait to see the next one!!! I just subbed to your channel dude!!! Also do you know of any places in like New Jersey or anywhere close by that sells old Legos by chance? I’d love to know since I collect and play with those kinds!! Also can you tell me where some shops sell some toy soldiers and metal ones too! I’d love to know too since I collect and play with those kinds too!! I hope you can tell me where I can get some cause that would be sick and to get them at great prices as well!!

  23. Andrew Denny on April 30, 2022 at 2:16 am

    Don’t have these in Australia

  24. Katelyn Jewel on April 30, 2022 at 2:18 am

    9:22 Looks like I was eating when you filmed this as I’m seen at a table for a second. XD

    17:38 There I am again with my dad.

  25. Tom Baldridge on April 30, 2022 at 2:18 am

    Seeing the ARMY at a video game convention rubs me the wrong way. You can definitely tell the target audience for them, smh…

  26. David Pallotti on April 30, 2022 at 2:19 am

    OMG 😆 LGR, gotta love that guy

  27. Shelby Blu on April 30, 2022 at 2:19 am

    Super cool! I’d love to be a vendor there! Just gotta find more video games😭. That’s okay tho, I’ve found a couple good ones before. I actually found an Odyssey, not in great shape tho. Love the vids, and the retro-ness!

  28. Steve's Solace on April 30, 2022 at 2:19 am

    My man! I just subscribed. You’re the shit! I was born in 69 and grew up in the 80’s. You bring back great memories!

  29. Luis23 on April 30, 2022 at 2:21 am

    What is the carrier do you use in super smash bro I would use Luigi

  30. Johnny Harrington on April 30, 2022 at 2:21 am

  31. Gerald Noris on April 30, 2022 at 2:22 am

    I don’t think there’s any in Canada a Inn America

  37. Jimothy.Halpert on April 30, 2022 at 2:33 am

    Retro, I live in NE Arkansas, and I was wondering, do we ever get any gaming conventions in Arkansas?

  38. Do You Nerd? on April 30, 2022 at 2:34 am

    Say, look at that charming couple popping up in this video!! Ha ha
    Nice idea for a video Rick; the ins and outs of a convention and talking about what to expect and see–I like that.
    Also, it was a lot of fun getting to finally meet you and chat. Already cannot wait to see your pickups–hoping a certain deal I spoke to a gentleman there went through. 😉

  39. Iboa on April 30, 2022 at 2:37 am

    Those store displays I can get them for free I might have to get them and start selling them.

  40. Justin Cook on April 30, 2022 at 2:39 am

    The wife and I are going to classic game fest in Austin Tx. July 23-24th will be my first but I’ve always wanted to go to one. Should be a blast

  41. Kelly Murray on April 30, 2022 at 2:42 am

    great vid .. glad you had a goodtime

  42. Eric Ocasio on April 30, 2022 at 2:44 am

    Not one mask in sight…. Texas.

  43. 16BitPete on April 30, 2022 at 2:45 am

    So this is your channel? We were both guests at retropalooza, we met in the elevator lol.

  44. MAGNUM05 on April 30, 2022 at 2:49 am

    I love going to these conventions. I would go to any retro gaming convention over newer gaming conventions anyday.

  45. Alessandro Bertoldi MrNoOne on April 30, 2022 at 2:50 am

    really cool video! keep us informed on different conventions it would be cool! keep it up! 😎😎😎

  46. keith wray on April 30, 2022 at 2:51 am

    Wow, what an awesome place to be

  47. Clip on April 30, 2022 at 2:54 am

    200 lbs for a small CRT tv? More like 30-40.

  48. William Hoots on April 30, 2022 at 2:55 am

    New subscriber. First day of building my collection. Was having no luck at any of the big thrift stores so decided to go in a tiny thrift store I’ve never been in. Bought 20 Xbox and Playstation games for $2 a piece, mainly stuff worth between $10 to $15 a piece. Did like Rick said and chatted up an older guy stocking. Turns out he has a few more boxes of games at his house he is going to bring in for me to buy for $2 a piece! Great advice Rick!

  49. Ezioslayer on April 30, 2022 at 2:55 am

    What advice do you for someone who is flying out of state to attend one if these and want to buy big box stuff? Use UPS to ship it back?

  50. TheY2AProblem on April 30, 2022 at 2:57 am

    The smell… the smell… oh my God the smell.
