I wanted to start the week off right with a trip back to my childhood. I was a Nintendo kid since owning my first NES when I was 11 back in 1988, and have never really deviated to any other systems. Outside of handhelds, I owned every system Nintendo put out with the exception of the N64 and am constantly barking at people who choose an XBox or PS3 over the Wii. Sorry gang, but “better graphics” is simply not a valid argument. :)
So, shown here are a bunch of NES game covers. I do love all of these designs, but that’s not the reason I chose to showcase these covers. I have some very fond memories tied to all of these games. Staying up late with other kids playing Blades of Steel until our thumbs were sprained, getting yelled at by mom to go outside while playing Bionic Commando, amping up my team in Baseball Stars, yelling at my television every time Tyson knocked me down. So many memories.
If you were a video game kid (or still are), you know what I’m talkin’ about. Feel free to comment on your own favorites from back in the day, I’d love to read your stories.
