Nintendo NES

(I'm not sure if I have put this thread in the right place! Moderators, feel free to move it)

One eighties game consol I remember is the Nintendo NES. The revolutionary idea of a cartridge in the game. Compared to my Playstation 2 the graphics were pretty rubbish, but good games. Donkey Kong throwing barrels at a farmer or the original Super Mario Brothers. Racing games were quite revoloutionary as there was a proper track! If my friend's mum hadn't bought one second hand for 8 last year I would never have played an eighties consol. It was petty bulky and took me and my friend 1 hour to tune it into a 2003 Widescreen TV with about 3 different adapters ;D

Children children, calm down ;D

The SNES was the one console that ever really got to me. I would spend hours playing The Legend Of Zelda when the wife worked nights O0


I have the body of a 19 year old. I keep it in the fridge.......................

I bought one of those new when it first came out (i've actually still got it!)

I was a demon at Super Mario Brothers!

Be warned though David that prolonged play will make your hands hurt like hell as the controller isnt exactly ergonomic!

Ok, thanks for that. I wonder if my friend could claim to be one of the few to have a working one. ;D
