    i0n is officially the worst and best admin. ever.

    It's not most people figured it out, too bad no one thinks up ways to save space today.

    It was the NES and it was 1985. Cut Nintendo some slack.

    Umm, 320KB of cartridge ROM memory on a console with 2KB of RAM, that's why.

    When you're programming with limited resources, you come up with all sorts of tricks and re-use. If you knew all the tricks they used in games like SMB and Metroid, it'd blow your mind. For example, read through this document:

    http://mdb.classicgaming.gamespy.com/m1/lvldata.htm

    Once you absorb all that, then decide whether Nintendo was a bunch of cheap, lazy programmers.
