Walnut encased Neo Geo
We are all trying to build our very own bat cave. Don’t pretend you don’t want a funnel slide that will bring you from your car to your living room at the push of a button. lol.
We may not all be able to get the funnel slide but at least we can have a conversation piece that doubles as one of the greatest gaming systems of all time. I know, I know. I already did a post on “I want that” for a Neo Geo, but this one is made of wood (pause). That should justify the double gadget lust. If you want to get one of these go here, otherwise get your chisel, cus this is gonna take a while.
If you ar an O.G. gamer like me you remember this…
I was like, 9 or 10 years old droolin’ on the display case in the Electronics Boutique all the way in the back corner of the mall. I remember playin Art of Fighting at the bowling alley and spending all my pocket money trying to beat the first dude (I was a kid, that game was waaay harder than Street Fighter).
Me and my friends would always talk about how crazy NEO GEO games were. When this became a home console, we all went crazy! That is, until we saw the pricetag.
The Neo Geo home system started at $700 and each game was $250.
No way I was getting it. I still remember all the dope games for it though:
I must have craved this thing for like 3 years and then Genesis came out. It was affordable on a birthday present budget so I got the hookup. It’s only now as an adult that I realize how dope NEO GEO was. I just don’t know why the price had to be so disrespectful…I mean STILL IS disrespectful.
not as disrespectful as this ad for the home system though:
