Welcome to the GameTrog Cave.

This realm is dedicated to classic video game consoles of yore!

Follow the antics of an old gamer, playing classic video games and new ones for almost any system. I’ve seen, played and owned just about every game system under the sun and enjoy them all. I’ll share my adventures with you as I relive some classics and continue to grow my collection.

You’re always welcome in the cave, where you can read the Trog Blog to find out what games I’m playing, what I think about them and if they are worth your time.

Enjoy your stay, and give me a follow on your favorite social media platform. I promise to entertain!

Troglodytea prehistoric cave dweller; a primitive, or brutal character that is deliberately old-fashioned.

GameTrog refers to the “old-fashioned” days of video game playing. Back before online gaming was an option, we primitive game players would often have a corner in our dark cave of a room where we would play our games. If we wanted to play someone else they would have to huddle in the dank darkness with us…the dark ages of game playing if you will!

And while time is always moving on, and even us gametrogs accept and like our new shiny game playing devices, we must never forget from whence we came!
