For all those wondering what to gift an arcade enthusiast or classic gaming fan, these mini, fully functional arcade machines may very well be the perfect stocking stuffer. Small enough to fit in a pocket, these pint-sized games pack some serious gaming punch and can be played anywhere they can be carried.
Brought to you by Super Impulse, the $20 machines feature classic games like Pac-Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Galaxian, and Space Invaders. They offer original gameplay with joystick and button controls, and they even have all the familiar sounds and graphics of the classics—no coins needed.

While the tiny controls may require some finessing, the overall user experience is pretty exceptional for such a tiny device. Per user reviews and YouTube videos that show the tiny arcade machines’ gameplay, it looks like both the graphics and sound make these tiny games a real holiday steal.
The tiny arcade machine miniatures are being sold at Amazon, Walmart, and ThinkGeek. Gift one to your favorite gamer, or buy them all for yourself and create your own tiny arcade. Each mini comes with its own keychain for easy carrying.
