It’s funny how excited everyone was over the superior graphics of the original Nintendo at the time it came out. I remember working as a page at the state capital (and no, none of the representatives made a pass at me..but we also didn’t have e-mail and instant messenger back then) so I could afford to be an NES and a TV to go with it. My dad wouldn’t let me buy a TV, though, so I had to use it on the main TV in the living room. A 2nd TV would have been a huge luxury back in those days.
My favorite games, or at least that I remember, were Contra, Castlevania, Mega Man, and probably Zelda. Remember the gold cartridge? What were your favorite games? If you Zelda, did you have the gold cartridge?
