With the holiday video game season in full swing and new blockbuster titles coming out this month, one can't help but feel a little nostalgic for video games of the past. Now is a good time to take a trip back 20 years and take a look at some retro gaming accessories.

Atari Flashback 3 - The Flashback 3 console looks just like the original Atari 2600. It includes 60 classic Atari games with 2 iconic Atari joysticks. The 80's retro look is sure to stand out around your media console.

Retro Invader Couch - Want to bring your love of 1980's gaming into your living room in a big way? Then this eather Space Invader-inspired couch may be for you. For a little less than $9,000, this truly unique 8-bit bench features memory foam cushions and is made to order. It's available now for pre-order.

Atari Arcade Duo for iPad - If you want to add some retro gaming to your modern tech, you might want to try out this Atari arcade stick for your iPad. Like other arcade pads for the iPad, this one comes with Atari's Greatest Hits app, perfectly suited for the retro arcade stick. While there are other arcade sticks out there for the iPad (like the iCade from ThinkGeek), this one is officially licensed by Atari.

Tetris Shelves - Many people have spent countless hours playing Tetris--now you can physically bring the game to your home with these life-size Tetris blocks shelves. These 10 piece blocks come in Birch or White exterior wood with White or Multi-Colored interiors. Units are 9" deep so they're perfect for displaying books and toys. Like Tetris the game, these blocks are also modular.
