Arcades introduced me to gaming back in the early 80's. Then Nintendo went and saved the industry and I started buying video games based on the coolest box cover art~

I only became engaged with Nintendo TVii during sporting events. And even then it wasn't that often. I thought it was neat how if you made a comment on Nintendo TVii it would post it to your twitter and hashtag it #NintendoTVii automatically.

I had no intentions of watching that entire video. Yet that is what I did and thoroughly enjoyed it.

I very much remember SMB2 being extremely hard to find during the Christmas of 1988. That cartridge was more rare than a Fire Emblem related amiibo. (And yes, I remember that 20/20 report w/ John Stossell).

Luckily for me, my mom worked for a company that had several locations around the United States and she was able to get a coworker in Michigan (we live in Virginia, btw) to find a copy of the game and mail it to her. In an age w/o internet, that was pretty awesome I must say and that Christmas, because of that game, is still one of my most memorable ever.

What did I learn from The Gaming Historian's video? That the same people who did the California Raisins animation designed the cover of the first Nintendo Power!! Too cool!!!

I still have my copy of that first Nintendo Power.

I still have my cartridge that came all the way from the Land of the Great Lakes during that Christmas of 1988.

And I still very much so love me some Super Mario Bros 2!!!

I don't care how many times it's rereleased, if it comes out for my TI-85 calculator, I will be buying and downloading it. 0<img class=" />

Tremendous article!

I also feel I would not still be gaming today if it weren't for Iwata coming in during the early-to-mid 2000 and taking over Nintendo. I felt I was getting too old to play video games around the turn of the millenium but Iwata proved, to me, that games can be fun at any age.

RIP Iwata and Thank you !

I still can't fathom all of this. I have to get off the internet for a while because it's just all too sad for me to process right now. :'(

It's so sad to see that the Wii U has pretty much been abandoned. I know personally as a Wii U owner I was hoping for a Metroid title or a new Animal Crossing. Instead we get these lame spinoffs.

Nintendo has never been more out of touch.....
