About yyrGames

My name is Aaron Teplitsky and I grew up with video games. My dream has always been to bring the same kind of fun that I enjoy most to people around the world.

My favorite games have always been arcade games, and arcades have always been among my favorite places. I have always enjoyed everything about arcades: the games, their styles of play, the atmospheres, the other players and the competition they bring...and, I still frequent arcades to this day, for all of these reasons.

But most gamers today don't have access to this experience. Most arcades have closed. New arcade game releases are few and far between, and much of what is new is mediocre. Competition is not always easy to find. And of course, unlike the old days, home consoles are capable of graphics as good as, or better than, the expensive arcade machines, which leads many to wonder why they should leave their houses in the first place.

Most of the games I produce will attempt to capture the arcade spirit that I feel is missing from so many modern games: the feel, the competitiveness, the fast pace, the pure action, and of course, the fun! So please enjoy yyrGames! And feel free to drop me a message on the forums at any time, and tell me how I'm doing! I will always read and respond to all player comments.
