The video game era has done a lot of things that we will forever be appreciative of like Super Mario Brothers, James Bond 007, Mario Kart, and Grand Theft Auto. It is interesting that you can easily identify a person’s age when you get their answer to the question: what was your favorite video game as a kid? If you hear somebody say 007 then you can usually peg them as a child of the 90’s and if any of them save a PS3 game or higher, they grew up in the first decade of the 2000’s. Now when you hear people start throwing out Nintendo titles like Tecmo Bowl, Duck Hunt, and Mega Man, you know that they grew up in the 80’s. As a child of the 80’s, there are a lot of things we would like to forget (who can forget Milli Vanilli) but none of the video games fall into that category. A lot of us actually wish we could still experience blowing into a Nintendo cartridge and trying to carefully place it into the system in order to play.
One game that we all used to love was a game called Galaga. The noises that would be made every time you pressed the “fire” button created almost a beautiful symphony we all loved (and miss). We were always so proud when we were able to manage to double up the amount of ships we had but our stupid brothers were always able to pull off having three. We know that cheating wasn’t possible but we’re convinced our stupid older brothers had found out a way to do it. Now that we have taken you far enough down memory lane we want to introduce a cool set of two pint glasses that have the Galaga ships on the glass themselves. The most important thing about getting any kind of glasses is that they will be conversational pieces and Galaga should get anybody talking. Check out the Etsy store called Crawlspace Studios and snag yourself a couple of these Galaga pint glasses. Click here for image source and where to buy.
