Retro gaming has been getting more and more popular over the years. The love of old games and reliving memories of the past can be quite addicting to some. Replay Events is a company that hosts one of the best retro gaming events in the UK each year. JoypadAndMe have been lucky enough to attend a few of them and have been very impressed with what we saw. If you have a love of an old console or a particular game then you are sure to find it at one of their events along with a host of consoles, computers and games that you have forgotten about or maybe didn’t even know existed.
