Gamers and Drivers
This week catch up with MCMGs (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley) and get their thoughts on their video games and cars.
One evening last week I was sitting around in my basement thinking about video games as I played a video game (Magic the Gathering on XBL) and the thought of my original Nintendo Entertainment System popped into my head. What happened to it, what games do I still posses, and where can I find it if it is indeed available? The thought of the NES
possessed me to start my own quest to find my old system and see if I can get it working.
Well, it wasn't much of a quest, but I found the stained, sticky, soda covered NES in my brother's closet, and along with it inside the box were more games than I remembered ever owning! The box glowed with the aura of holiness, and I heard a faint "Ahhhhh" as I laid eyes on my new find. Everything needed was inside the corrugated treasure chest, including two controllers and the following NES games - Mario Bros/Duck Hunt, Excitebike, Rad Racer, NARC, Ice Hockey, Kings Knight, Spy vs Spy, Wrestlemania Challenge, Final Fantasy, Kung Fu, Fester's Quest, The Adventures of Link, Tetris, Star Force, Pinball Quest, River City Ransom, W&W 2, Wrestlemania, Tecmo Super Bowl, Star Tropics, Mario/Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet, Othello, Super Team Games, Super Dodge Ball, Crystalis, Skate or Die, and lastly, one of my favorite all time games, Dragon Warrior.
Jackpot baby. I couldn't wait to get this thing up and working, but anyone who has ever owned an NES knows it's not an easy task. Blowing in the game and the NES, clicking the game up and down really fast inside the machine, moving the game side to side as it sits in the game slot, nothing seemed to work and all I got after hours of trying was the
flashing grey screen.
