The caption is hilarious.
If they tried to write that today, there`d be some sort of parental uproar about Nintendo condoning underage sex -__-

"Later, use the mat for more creative purposes to keep your mother from finding a wet spot on the couch." o.O I are intrigued. So Nintendo wasn`t always entirely "kid-friendly." Kinky. I wonder if you could play a game while doing it on the mat...?

I remember that powerpad. I played track and field with a cousin. Easy enough to beat the game. Total bitch to beat the cousin. That thing kicked your ass in a way that makes WII fit seem like a toy for the elderly and infirm.

I still have my original NES hooked up (to my 52 inch TV). Must search eBay for the Power Pad.

Meanwhile... I still regret not taking my Vectrex system when I moved out in 92. My mom gave it away.

Hey. Shut up. That is the Track and Field running pad you polygon-sucking whippersnappers. You show your gaming ancestry some goddamned respect! If it wasn`t for that floor pad, you wouldn`t have your DDR machines, your Guitar Hero guitars, your Wiis, your Xboxes, your PS/2/3`s...these games pulled the video game industry out of the copycat hellhole it nearly drowned in.

YOU KISS YOUR BITS AND THANK THEM!

Man, I used to play Nintendo Track and Field with one of those, years before DDR cam out. You would run and jump on the pads, and the character`s speed and distance were determined by your speed and air time. You had sprints, high jump, running and standing long jumnp, hurdles, everything but the throwing sports (javelin, discus, shot put and hammer). Man, those were the days.
