Recently, there has been an influx of miniaturized versions of arcade classics. For example, I can collect small arcade machines and fit them all in my spare bedroom. For example, I have Frogger, Galaga, Dig Dug, Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaxian and Space Invaders…all of these wonderful games and they cost less than $100 for all of them. The key is that their compact size allows me to be able to fit them on my spare bedroom bookshelf.

Amazingly, they are fully functional, albeit tough to play for competitive scores or even for more than about 10 minutes at a time.
