A Little Nintendo on a Rainy Day

Sunday, November 02, 2008

A few years ago, I ordered an old Nintendo from Ebay after playing it at Danny & Kerrie's house while we were in the Bay area one Thanksgiving. We pulled it out today and played with Sam for a little while today, since it rained most of the day and Juniper is teething and has a cold. It was fun, but amazing at how my brain has retained all the hidden secrets of Mario Brothers. Amazing, too, how similar it seems to Atari without the joysticks. Technology has come a long way since I was a kid, that's for sure. Fortunately, Sam doesn't know the difference--not yet, anyway. All it's going to take is a playdate with a friend who has a wii and before I know it, he's going to be asking for one for Christmas.
