This is definitely a flash back to my early childhood. After ATARI ran its course, the biggest must have gaming system was Nintendo, which hit the shelves in October of 1985.
I was just in grade school when my folks plugged the gray box into our enormous console TV. A small gray box that would warp my brother and I into imaginary lands with fire breathing dragons, castles, flying turtles etc. We'd spend hours on end playing NES until our thumbs would become calloused. Those were the days... the days when we didn't have any worries, except how quickly we could save the princess that is.
