My video game playing days go back to the original NES console. Way back when I figured out what happened when you stayed in all day in hopes of conquering Super Mario Brothers. Never did figure out. (thank you Game Genie!) But I got the sore thumbs and pale skin from sitting cross-legged in front of my dad's old Sears brand 19" TV in the basement.

Now that I have kids I'm immersed in video games again! I wonder if my son will want this console? I'm excited--analog connections, top loader... yup, very excited
