Friday Night Videos: Now You’re Playing With Power.
See? Nintendo selling their shit as fun for the whole family is nothing new. Back when the original NES was released, the state of the industry was still in such a terrible state that their product was positioned as an entertainment system and not just another shitty video game console. That approach along with an ad campaign that got kids all hopped up to get their hands on one of these new “Nih-tendos” meant it wouldn’t be long before the Japanese company would be sitting pretty on top of piles of cash.
If my closet door led to a fucking Toys ‘R Us I’d save my girlfriend hundreds of dollars in gas money.
I landed mine at Chuck E. Cheese during my 6th birthday. I remember begging for one for months and it wasn’t until I’d already torn open all of my presents that my great Aunt came walking in with a box that I knew was just the right size. Once it was unwrapped and was I staring down my very first Nintendo console I turned and almost crippled the poor woman from tackling her so hard . Thanks so much Auntie Nors. My free time all of these years has been much better spent saving princesses and destroying evil wizards and dragons and stuff than doing something retarded like becoming a lawyer or doctor.
