Happy Birthday Nintendo

Happy Birthday NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) is turning 30, as it was officially launched in North American on October 18th, 1985 to a limited portion of the US.

Many a childhood turtle ticked their way to unlimited guys on Mario Bothers, or had to blow in the game cartridge or quick-flicker it on and off to actually work.

At one point our Nintendo game ejector was so worn out we had to cram two games in at the same time in order to keep the cartridge from popping out.

Like any birthday celebration it’s good to take time to reflect on the good times and the bad times.  My bother had a tendency to throw controllers in frustration, the Power Pad wore through a few pair of socks.

I never did get the Power Glove, but thanks to the NES and Mike Tyson’s Punch Out I got to experience the closest I’ll ever get to knocking out Mike Tyson. Happy 30th Birthday Nintendo we spent a lot of good hours together my friend.
