What do you call yourself if you're not a retrogamer

I like retrogaming but prefer general tinkering and fixing up old computers. What should I call myself if not a retrogamer?

Retrocomputerer?

Mainly a lurker. Don't get time to play games only read forums and watch YouTube videos. Therefore a wannabe gamer.

Yep. "Back to the future" man. 1985 was the best year ever.

I'm also of that kind of retro-freaks. In Spain we call freaks frikis or friquis.

So I suggest that name: "Retro-freaks" or in spanish "retro-frikis"

I love to tinker and fix vintage things. As an example, today I've spent hours with my "new" Technics M7 tape deck from 1979
I've ordered a new bulb for its VU meters.
