I'm in the PHX airport right now waiting for a delayed flight to Austin.

I don't have a lot of time or I'd post this on Juicy Gamer, but I thought it was so cool I couldn't wait.

Joystiq has a sweet interview up with Trent Reznor (http://www.joystiq.com/2009/09/24/interview-trent-reznor/). He talks at length about his love of classic games. I know So Cal and Subaru Brat like Kiss, so they might like Nine Inch Nails (might be a little to electronic for Subaru tho). Anyway, as a huge NIN fan and a huge retro gamer I thought this was cool.

Here's a pretty amazing quote in which Trent describes his own "Holy Crap" moment. Too bad he couldn't have been on the round up as a guest for this months top 10 lists:


I had a lot of great times in arcades and I miss that experience. I know things move forward, but there's something about discovering an arcade, the aesthetics, the cool cabinet that was built specifically for that game. The first time I saw Tempest, for example, I was like, "What the *%$#*&*%$#*&*%$#*&*%$#*& is this?" It looked like some sort of 2001 thing, it had weird, abstract graphics and sounded cool. I realize times have changed, but I miss having those three minutes where it's you versus that machine, sweating like crazy in this finite countdown to death scenario. A game like Robotron ... that separates the men from the boys.

How cool is that? That sounds lifted right off the round up.
