Remember back in the day, after the Atari was old news and the coolest kids had a Nintendo? That's right.... I was not one of those 'cool' kids, but my cousin was, so close enough. In fact he and his buddies even let me be in their Nintendo gaming group...even without having a Nintendo.
wow....makes it a little more obvious about how much of a nerd I was/am.
You know when your game froze up and you had to take the cartridge out and blow on it?(Shockingly, every kid managed to figure that out without chat rooms and facebook.... a mystery that will perhaps never be solved.) There was no saving your progress, you had to either get the codes to bypass to another level or find the warp zone or just pause it until after supper (or until the next day in college). There were cheats, but somebody had to figure them out and then you had to hope that they were your friend so they'd tell you.... that was until 'Nintendo Power' magazine came out.
Ahhhh....the good ol' days.
So here's a little tribute to the best video game ever.
Yes, it is pretty cool, but does it bother no one else that the player didn't even jump to the top of the flagpole (around the 0:50 mark) ? They just half-assed it and landed at the bottom....no extra points for him....how disappointing. :(
And no....I never did get a Nintendo, but a few years later my parents got me and my siblings a Sega....so I'm pretty confident that I can kick your ass in Sonic.
