Nothing Beats The Classic Nintendo Gaming System Back in The Day – Mario Bros – Super Mario and More…

In this day in age, some people only know about The XBOX 360, Playstation’s, and WII, and among other gaming consoles now, but in my opinion and in my era, the Classic Nintendo was the best. I know a lot of people who still play classic nintendo. My favourite games were Mario Brothers, Super Mario 1-3, Duck Hunt, Rivercity Ransom, Elevator Action, Dragon Fire, Konami Games, Olympic Games, Dr. Mario, Blades of Steel and among other games that I truly loved to play for hours with my brother and cousins. Since I was the younger sibling and when I used to play with my brother, I used to be Luigi because I was the younger and I would get so mad because I am playing last hahaha. So today I remembered those days and how fun it was with playing classic video games. I don’t know if Nintendo players remember how some games did not work well until you blew into the gaming cartridge. Now that was one of the many happy moments, and I am sure a lot of people can relate. I still see people wearing belt buckles and t-shirts of classic Nintendo and among the Mario, Luigi, and other characters like Goomba, Yoshi, and everything else. I still see them in specialty stores that have t-shirts, key chains, and among other items. Its so funny whenever I see them, I think of the memories I had when I was a child.

Several weeks ago, I was at a restaurant with my friends, just enjoying a night out with each other, and I saw our waiter with a Mario Mushroom belt buckle, and at this time I didn’t really say anything, and then he came back and we talked about his belt buckle, then when he went away to a table across from ours, I said hey, when you eat the mushroom it gets bigger. The guy started to laugh, then I realized why he was laughing, turned red like a tomato and he totally misinterpreted what I was saying. He thought about something else, rather than the game on what happens to Mario after he eat the mushroom. I am sure you can figure out what that is LOL. It was so funny. The guy said I will always remember that when I wear this now. Hes like I had never had anyone tell me that before. The belt buckle was in the center and he thought something different. It was super funny and my friends started laughing so hard and it was hilarious. So I guess everyone misinterpreted what I was trying to say lol about that. We still laugh about it to this day and it will forever be remembered in our group.

Gotta love classic gaming consoles. Now its too much violence and too graphic. I just cannot come to terms to play these new gaming consoles and the games. Its not my cup of tea.

What Board Games Have You Played? Do You Still Play Board Games Now?

Lately, I have been in my Gaming mode whether its from the Gaming Console or the original board games of the past. In Recent years I do not hear much of people playing board games anymore and I think it is due to the life now, how everything is revolved around gadgets, and games online now and I rarely hear anymore that people are actually playing an interactive board game with family and friends. I believe that by playing board games and being interactive is far more better than playing those games online. I believe its a lot more fun to play with people physcially than on a computer. Now In my previous blog I wrote about Nintendo Games and playing on the TV, thats also interactive with someone whom you can play with or a group of people in teams.

There were also these building games like Constructs, Lego, and all those things where you would build. It was so fun and I used to spend hours on it.

I remember playing so many board games as child up til my early teens. It has been a long time I haven’t played a board game. I played games like Uno, Trouble, Monopoly, Othello, Scattergories, Operation, Snakes & Ladders, Scrabble, Yahtzee, Tic Tac Toe, Backgammon, Checkers, Chess, Jenga, you name it. What Board games have you played? Do you still invest time in interactive games with your family and friends?
