you can recognize all the games? that was cute.
Doesn't that rock? [LOL] We didn't have an NES at home (Atari 2600 - my parents were cheap fsckers) but my little brother used to have his friend bring his over all the time when the had a sleepover, and I used to kick their butts in Mario and Mortal Combat! [LOL]
The NES was also the standard babysitter entertainment when I was taking care of my baby cousin and cousinette. I seem to recall that "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" was the game of the day back then.
Alas, my brothers and I were deprived, being raised on "Combat", "Asteroids", "River Raid" and "Pitfall". To tell you the truth, I wish I had that 2600 now - for nostalgia purposes, of course... [Ted rubs hands thinking of his Ebay revenues] [LOL]
oh don't knock the old school. my first system was an nes with tmnt, but i swear i spent more time at my buddy's house playing "weather war" on his commodore64.
The answer to the question - what did you like to do with your spare time??? ZELDA!!!
BTW - Tetris has served me well; you saw how I can even pack your apt!
Markdown will work here, if you're into that sort of thing.
