July 30, 2013

Dad's Basement is a video series from me, Dana, the Dad of the Happy Game Family, wherein I play, show off, and try to convey what was cool about some of my favorite games from yesteryear. I hope you kids appreciate that I'm spending some extra time cutting together all the cool parts! Get off my lawn, unless you're going to mow it for me!
