No school like the old school: Retro Game consoles...



Old school consoles.....good times!
 
I'm reaching out to all of you who lived your childhood in the 80s and 90s. Do you remember the endless Saturday afternoons (or sleepless nights) fun you had the moment you popped in the Nintendo/SEGA cartridges into their respecrive consoles? Sure, many improvements and permutations of both consoles came throughout the years replacing the older ones you see in the picture above but nothing can take away the memories of staying indoors trying to finish each and every one of those single cartridge games. You see, those individual cartridges cost quite a sum and the only way we'd be able to get new games cartridges is by finishing each and every one that we currently have. We didn't have 'screen capture' technology or camera phones back then so you can imagine the look on our parents' faces when they're forced to sit through the final level so you can prove to 'em that you've beaten the 'big boss'!
 
Good times.
