Take back the tie, home depot gift card, and any other stupid gift you were going to get Dad this year for Father’s Day, and let DKOldies make you a hero. I’m sure your Dad would love a coffee mug with your face on it, but let’s try something a little different this year.
You’ll be the golden child this Father’s Day when you waltz in with one of our Retro Video Game Dad gifts.
Contra on the NES. The first game I ever played and beat with my dad #Rebuildinitiative

Seriously, my dad never played an N64 game in his life. Picks up controller. Plays GoldenEye. 10 minutes later he's a perfect shot.

You know you are parenting the right way when you hear the words, "Dad, can we play Tecmo Bowl?"

1. Duck Hunt
I love the fact my dad is a gamer at heart. 25 years ago he bought an NES because he wanted to play Duck Hunt with me on Saturday mornings.
