Are You Dying to Talk About Games? Retro, Arcade, Modern, Pinball? People Like You Are Already Talking - On the Forum!

If you've been looking for a place to chat with people who love all types of gaming, the conversation has already begun and we want to welcome your voice!


The Game the System Forum has been up for a little while now and it's already packed full of interesting discussion on retro games, pinball, arcade games, modern games, board and table top games, and more. You will also see running journals on projects such as arcade repair, and a rom hack creating a new version of the Atari 2600 game River Raid - turning it into a tournament edition!

It's also the best place to keep up with what's going on with the Podcast, and to ask your questions and provide feedback that we can cover on the show. We'd love to hear from you and talk about the things that you want to hear.

So head on over and join the chat. We want to hear about what YOU play, what you're working on, and what games are capturing your attention these days. That can be all the way back to Game & Watch, and all the way forward to Bayonetta 3. It's all games and we all love talking about them, all the time!

New Podcast! New Forum! New Feature: Sydney's Only Bar-Arcade - 1989!

Game the System is very happy to announce that we have launched three new sections!

We've been a little quiet of late as we have worked on plans to shift focus from competitive pinball and to all things gaming: retro, modern games, arcade games, pinball, board games, table top, anything that people play! Additionally, we wanted to change our approach from news and events, to a connected gaming community. And what does that mean?

A Podcast!

Head on over to the Podcast section to listen to our brand new gaming podcast. Listen to Marc Bell, John Pansini and Matthew Tolhurst discuss all things gaming. We plan to release a new podcast every two weeks or there abouts, so subscribe via iTunes or Stitcher and join the conversation!

A Forum!

The Forum section does what it says on the box - a community discussion around all things gaming. Here you can keep up with the podcasts we release, the features, and all the things that the wonderful gaming community are up to. Don't hesitate to join the discussion, there's already heaps of content in there waiting for your opinion!

A new feature page: Play!

Expanding our view of people that play has always been our long term goal, and now are finally doing just that! The Play section is all about where people play, and the people that love these places. Our first feature is the one and only 1989 Arcade Bar & Kitchen in Newtown, Sydney - literally Sydney's ONLY bar-arcade!
