He also has a knack for anything nostalgic and has an almost unhealthy obsession with breakfast cereal. Although Riggs claims he loves all systems, he's very fond of NES, SNES, Genesis and TurboGrafx-16/TurboDuo. A few of his favorite games include The Legend of Zelda, ActRaiser, Sword of Vermillion and the Fire Pro Wrestling series from Japan. LIKE on Facebook | FOLLOW on Twitter | FOLLOW on Instagram
