I remember the christmas when I got my NES. I had smb, contra, and metal gear for it. I played and played that entire day. My brother and I had countless hours of fun playing anything that came out. I remember how stoked I was when I beat Metroid and Zelda. I read every issue of nintendo power for the next 5 years, I even hung the blaster master maps on my wall. Its even cooler now because I've got kids and I can introduce them to alot of the games I played as a kid.
