We Talk Games

We Talk Games is a podcast and community that shares a passion for video-games and their creators. Founded in 2006, We Talk Games focuses on archiving and reviewing as many arcade titles as they can before these games are forgotten. Each week the hosts play and review one arcade title from yesteryear. These games range from the ground-breaking to the obscure.
We Talk Games will be bringing their unique discussion to the Long Island Retro Gaming Expo and recording a live episode during their “Arcade at Home, Prior to 1980” panel. We’ll be discussing different dedicated consoles and toys that emulate the arcade experience at home. Physical samples will be on display and if time permits, we’ll also have a short Q&A session!
