Beautiful picture of a retro gaming family moment!! Congratulations!
I'm still single, so no kids at the moment. Maybe one day I can have one of these moments, when the pandemic hopefully goes away. One of my friends have two kids, and asked me for help, so I helped him to set up an retro nintendo gaming system for him and his kids. They love it. Even his wife is playing it - Super Mario Bros, Mario Kart. The other day he was showing them the Cobra Kai episodes on Netflix, and then the Karate Kid trilogy. I simply love the idea of showing to our kids how good our childhood times were. My dad (and my grandpa as well) did the same with me when I was a kid. I remember writing with his orientation at times, a Quick Basic program when I was about 8 yrs old, a small funny program that simulated a "cash machine". It just didn't had the money... HA!
But I've been revisiting old games with my dad so it's kinda the same thing but the other way around. One day he wanted to do an Apple IIe replica with his raspberry pi 3, it was just a thought for him, but I do want to work with him on this project, so I might have some talk to convince him... he had started his professional career in one of these Apple IIe replicas that were available in Brazil back in the late 70's/ early 80's.
Please keep rolling on more of these great moments with your kids! For sure, it's awesome to see some retro stuff love being kept alive and "transferred" to your kids, and there is no better thing than enjoying the time with your family, in a moment like this, while the world is locked down due a terrible virus.
@Kreshna: I had the same Microsoft Sidewinder steering wheel for a while, came with Microsoft CART Precision Racing game. One day it broke on me so I bought a Logitech MOMO. The best steering wheel I ever had in my simracing competitions. Much better than the so called Logitech G2x's, in terms of ergonomics.
