So who remembers the mullet kid from Nintendo Power? Okay, hold on; maybe I should take a step back here. Who remembers Nintendo Power? Anyone? Bueller? If you’re too young to remember the awesomeness that was Nintendo’s “Nintendo Power” magazine, then I’m sorry because you honestly missed out. This was long before the days where you had awesome websites like SQ around; we kids had to wait four weeks in between issues, and let me tell you, when you’re trying to beat Battletoads, those maps that magazine had were priceless. I remember my original Nintendo Power subscription came with a free game; I got to choose one of three games, and though I can’t remember the other two, I ended up picking Dragon Warrior. Awesome game aside, do you want to know what else I remember from that first subscription to Nintendo Power? That mullet kid who had the coolest room in the world. And a turtleneck t-shirt. Hit the link below for pure nostalgia, and/or laughter regardless of what age you are.
It’s sad to think about, but I turn the fresh young age of 30 in approximately three weeks. I’ve been gaming for just about every single one of those years since my original spawn in 1983, and it started with many of the games/systems on the hilariously nostalgic list below. I’m looking forward (in a weird way) to the day when I’m 60, to see what the average “gaming age” will be then; it will be like the jokes that started on Facebook a few years ago that asked the question, “What happens when we all start getting old?” Awesome photo roll below that’s sure to make your Tuesday less crappy!
