My name is Alex, but my friends call me Roly, and I'm a proud father of 4 as well as a self confessed computer geek. My love affair with technology started in the 80's, with the first home computers, and I spent my teenage years in the arcades. In my spare time (what little there is with a full time job and 4 kids) I love to collect and write about classic games.

So if you loved Donkey Kong, Space Invaders or Pacman, I have written articles on all these retro video games and more.

I started blogging in 2011, launching my own retro games website, and am now using Hubpages to further develop my writing skills, and get involved with a wider community of Hubbers who will hopefully share in my unashamedly geeky interests.
