Quotes

Imagine the meeting. "Bob, what can we do about these smartphone? Kids just aren't spending enough time with their potatoes anymore. Instead they're Facebooking and Flappy Birding. Wait, I know... interactive potatoes!" [Cut to Bob being paraded around the office on his coworkers' shoulders]

"Most of us that are really into this were kids when the golden age of arcades was happening," Nelson said. "Every time we walked into an arcade, it was like this whole other world. We didn't have a Wii or an Xbox; we got to suck quarters out of our parents and hope the local 7-Eleven had some games."
