The expo hall had a lot to offer, especially in the way of nostalgic memorabilia. Among the numerous vendors were some amazing deals on games, controllers and even consoles.

All this old school gaming really got us wanting to play some retro video games, so we caved and bought a SNES Nintendo Classic Mini on Amazon.
