    Wow, that took me back. I remember when Super Mario 2 came out. I also remember my mom not letting me play Zelda because she thought it was evil.

    Nintendo, Atari, Furbies, Cabage Patch Kids, etc etc. There has always been a "hot" toy.

    Move along, nothing to see here.

    I never got a Nintendo when I was a boy...
    ... oh wait, I was 25 in 1988!

    "Good graphics and sound effects" LOLZ!
    Thanks for the flash-back laughs @korahn!

    "@3:55 - You`re doing it wrong you fail-hole."

    Actually, before all the side buttons, top buttons etc. were added, that was the way a lot of us held the controller. When they added more buttons, we had to switch to using our thumbs, but it wasn`t until the new buttons were added.

    Haha those were the days. I remember when Mortal Konbat first came out too -- my mom wouldn`t let me play it so I had to go to a friends house to experience the all the gory bloody action!
