This game system has all of the games my husband enjoyed as a kid. This worked right out of the box and has provided so much fun for my family. The controller is a bit slower to respond, but that really does provide an authentic experience of how it was "back in the day"!
We weren't sure if purchasing the game table would be a good idea or not. It turns out it was a great idea--it's excellent to have a place to play board games like Settlers of Catan, or play poker with or without chips. There is plenty of room for the game pieces, as well as elbows on the table. It's a decent sized table, so nobody is cramped, but not so big we are too far apart. It's great to have a place to convene and play, and if we get interrupted or the game is long--we can safely and neatly leave everything out without dogs running through it or kids rough housing and scattering everything. Having a designated place to play has increased the fun of playing games as well. Game players are not in anyone's way. It's easy to play a game and watch TV in the same room, we hung a light above the game table in case lights are turned off for TV watching. The table is a little shaky, we probably need to tighten the legs, but the intrinsic value of it far surpasses it. It's 3.5-4 starts in quality, but 5 stars in value. Great gift. Excellent for family time.
The original shipment arrived damaged by the shipper. It was with great trepidation that I reached out to Overstock to see whether I could get a replacement or refund. I was AMAZED at how quickly and thoroughly Overstock responded to my needs, with them even getting me in touch with the manufacturer to find the easiest replacement method. Ever since I received the replacement, I've been having tons of fun playing the many games I enjoyed during my college days in the early 80s. The games load up easily, and it's very easy to navigate between them. This arcade is a great addition to my bar/game room!
