Youtube Arcade Competition - Retro Rumble

Retro Rumble is a competition between modern gamers on old school arcade video games.  They film the segments and post them on their youtube channel.  You can watch the actual games and watch the player as well as the trash-talking between the competitors.  It's a quick, fun time with episodes lasting less than 10 minutes.

Since good gamers can sometimes play old school games FOREVER, the episodes I've seen use a format where everyone gets a fixed amount of time (one minute) to score the maximum amount of points they can.  Obviously, with this format, the strategies might be different than if you played normally.

They also have online leagues you can join.

Here're the links, one for their website and one for their youtube channel...
