Meet Josh Guskin
Founder & Owner of GUSCADE
A long time ago in a garage not so far, far away… I grew up going to local Long Island arcades such as Space Plex, various mall arcades, as well as many summers spent in the Adirondack/Lake George area arcades when I was younger. Back in the 80s & early to mid 90s, arcade machines were virtually everywhere. However, it seems these magical arcade video games have slowly started to become harder to find. I started to collect arcade machines around 2002. I mainly played the Nintendo Entertainment System as I was growing up, when not dropping quarters in the arcades. At the time, I wasn’t aware but once I started collecting the full upright arcade machines, I realized arcade machines were better overall. The graphics, the sounds, the game play, the controls and the artwork were all amplified on the arcade machine. I remember playing one game on the NES with my dad… Capcom’s Gun Smoke. One of my very first dedicated arcade machines was Gun Smoke. I started to rack up decent scores, so much so that I ended up acquiring the world record through Twin Galaxies which is recognized by Guinness World Records. My hobby and passion shows on every machine that’s built, certainly a labor of love.
