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 got this for my boyfriend for his birthday and he enjoyed it! I paid extra for the duct tape and it was fun seeing him struggle a little to open the crate! :) It was a fun crate, but some of the candy was a little old and stale and he was not too big of a fan of the games. Overall, it was a fun gift to give!

I'll be honest, I bought this for myself as a little 30th birthday present. It arrived exactly when it said it would, and I had an awesome time opening it in front of my girlfriend. I received great games. Couldn't be happier. I even got my girlfriend to play, and then invited some of my friends over to make everyone nostalgic. Candy was also perfect. Great crate, great site. I can't wait to get more man crates (and hopefully I won't have to purchase them for myself anymore).

Great gift! I was looking for something different for my husband for his birthday, this was perfect! He opened it with the kids watching & he was just as excited about opening a gift as the kids were! He really loves playing all the old games we have with this new council. The candy was a great hit too!

I wanted to surprise my husband and send him a "just because gift" for being so wonderful lately and helping out and picking up so much of the slack with how difficult our pregnancy has been, but you can't exactly send a man flowers, and I remembered him mentioning this website to me months ago.
I'm so glad I remembered man crates, because it was the perfect gift for my gamer of a husband. He absolutely loved it!
I've never experienced such a quick and pleasant customer service experience in my life. If I could rate more than 5 stars, I would. The company is amazing and went above and beyond to make sure both my husband and I were happy and satisfied. I wasn't expecting them to go so out of their way to make us happy with our purchase. I cannot stress enough how wonderful my experience was.
I cannot wait for another opportunity to order from ManCrates. I'll be purchasing crates again for my husband, father, and brother. It's definitely worth it.
Thank you so much, Man Crates.

This gift is pretty awesome. My boyfriend got a kick out of it as did his parents. The candy that was included was a hit as well.
The only downside is that you do not have control over which games are included in the crate, that is why this is only getting 4 stars from me. The two games included he had never heard of nor played. Thankfully my mom hooked him up with Donkey Kong.

Not only is Man Crates a wicked site, but their customer service is pretty unbeatable. It was the perfect gift for my boyf's 3 year gift. It was hilarious watching him open it. The military discount pans out nicely, and even if you can't get your hands on that, there's additional discounts when you enter reminder emails. I recommended this site to 8+ people. Great work dudes.

Ordered this for my gamer son who is in the Military. He was so surprised and got a real laugh out of it. Couldn't think of a better gift for a 26 year old!

Bought it for my grandson as a grad gift from middle school - he is a serious gamer - very thrilled with the whole thing - would have loved an old Mario or metro if - you might want to allow at least one choice per purchase but otherwise made a 14 yr old serious gamer light up like a Christmas tree!
