Confession: The release of the Nintendo NES Classic Edition
has me on a major retro gaming kick. I can’t actually find one (working on it
), as they sold out immediately on launch in November and have only trickled into stores since. But no matter – it’s 1990 again, and I’m hanging out with my best friend Bobby and we’re convinced that Super Mario Bros. 3
is the best thing ever.
Oh, and for this six-year-old, it was.
So this week I’ve been watching far too many YouTube videos
about the history of Nintendo, Mario, Game Boy, and the video games of my youth. Ah, nostalgia. See you next week.
