Before there were streaming services, before there were all-in-one media boxes, a video game console had one purpose. And when you got one for your birthday, you flipped out like the meaning of your entire existence on planet Earth had completely changed.
That momentous birthday seems shrouded in the mists of time. Your library of obsolete video games is the only reminder of those halcyon days when a sore and calloused thumb was a badge of honor.
Today's game systems are undeniably cool, but sometimes you just want to play - No menus, no movies, no fluff.
It's time to give your game collection new life. Muscle memory kicks in as you power through the classics on a Retro-Bit NES console. You remember the laser-like focus required to smash the backboard in NBA Jam. There's an entire section of your brain dedicated specifically to Street Fighter 2 combos. And you can thread the needle in Gradius better than Luke Skywalker barreling down the Death Star trench.
A suite of sweets courses through your veins, mana from a lost age, endowing you with inhuman energy and endurance as you recondition your once-dominating reflexes. Revel once again in your accomplishments as you best the most unforgiving 8-bit games.
In a sealed wooden crate with a laser-etched crowbar. No bow, no ribbons, no fluff, and absolutely no instructions.

I ordered the Retro gamer for my husband for his birthday. I wanted to take him back to his childhood. It was definitely a great gift idea, He loved it!! He loved the concept of opening the gift with a crow bar. It took him a while, but when He finally got it open he was amazed at what he saw. He immediately hooked it up and began to play. He also started shopping online for more games. I would definitely order from man crates again!

Sent this to my boyfriend's work for a Valentine's day surprise. All his coworkers were jealous.

He's a complete gamer. And I'm not. So sometimes I have a hard time getting him gifts he genuinely loves. Well, I scored major points with this one. The games aren't super well known but it took him back to his childhood and he loved it. I asked him to record himself opening the gift so I could see his reaction. Lol he was seriously struggling trying to pry the crate open and it was absolutely hilarious! He loved it, probably because it's such a unique gift. Thanks Mancrate, you made me a hero ;)

I love giving gifts that are unique and unexpected--my husband was NOT expecting this for Valentine's Day but he loved it! Ordering was painless, shipping was on point, and ManCrates.com is now my go-to gift source.

I bought the Retro Gamer Man Crate for my husband for Valentines Day! It was the coolest thing!! He absolutely loved prying it open with his crowbar! We have been playing the Nintendo games since he has got it! Such a neat idea! I definitely will be returning to get him another man crate in the future!!

This was a gift for my husband. He loved it. The only downside was that one of the games didn't work.

My husband LOVED receiving this gift! He was so excited to get the "old school" back to our gaming collection! My only negative is that he and I were really disappointed in the games that came with this crate. It would be really nice if there was an option to choose which games you receive with your crate, even if it came with a small extra fee.

He loved it!!!! Two things he appericate is his old school candy and the throwback games. It's was so worth it!! To see his face :) priceless.
The only issue was the box it was delivered in... It wa suppose be a surprise and the mancrate was stamped all Over the box he googled it before I got home to give him the big surprise. Ehhh it was okay because he had to work hard to see what exactly I got him.

I bought this for my husband for valentines day and he absolutely loved it! He was so excited like a little kid when he saw the crate that said "man crates " on the front with a mini crow bar, he had fun opening it and was thrilled when he got it open and saw the retro gaming system and candy from back in the day! He loves that kind of stuff. He said it was the 2nd best gift he ever got, (the first best was something sentimental from me) anyways he loved it and I will definitely be ordering more crates for him and also thinking for my brother as well ☺The only thing I had wished was that I could have chosen the games because one of them was kinda lame that he doesn't like , but he borrows a whole bunch of old Nintendo games that his buddy had in storage so he is happy playing those. Man Crates is very cool

I bought this for my husband for Valentine's Day. He absolutely loved it and it was a nice change! He had so much fun prying it open. I just wish you could choose your games other than that it's awesome!!

For so long I've been looking for something that would wow my husband on Valentine's Day that was equivalent to the flowers that he would send me... Thank you Man Crates for making my husbands day...
