Retro Consoles!

Post  Thatch on Tue Apr 15, 2008 1:30 pm

Here you can discuss about retro consoles, which I for one love.
It seems that buying a game on the Virtual Console just isn't the same experience as shoving a game cartridge into that Nintendo Entertainment System.

I've kind of accidentally set myself a challenge to get all the Nintendo home consoles for free, haha. Ages ago I was on MSN and somehow the NES came up in discussion, which my friend had. Then some convincing later, I met up with him and took it off him, for free. Since then I've absolutely fell in love with it, I even got a Zapper and Duck Hunt! Now you cant experience that on VC can you! Wink

Since then I got an N64 off a friend for free (with 12 games!), and in the next gen he has promised me his Gamecube ... That only leaves the SNES. I've came close with a mint condition, boxed SNES with starfox in it! Although that was a bit too sentimental to give away I guess.

*reads post* I sound like a real scaff. Neutral

My dad had a commodore 64 that I played when I was about 2 year old. Surprised It was great and had some really good games. Especially Paper Boy (one of the best games ever!) which I played over and over again!

The Commodore 64 is coming to the Virtual Console! Very Happy You must download paper boy. Well, that's if it's stood the test of time.

I have an Amiga in the attic. What a legend of a console that was. It just needs a new disk drive because I put the disk in the wrong way and broke it lol. I was that stupid back then. I was only 4 or 5 though

I have every mainstream nintendo (Just incase you don't know, thats a NES, SNES, N64, GCN) and every Nintendo Gameboy minus the mini and girl. I also have a Sega Megadrive and every NES, SNES game on my upstairs computer. My dad is currently building an arcade machine which I will be able to play the orginal arcades. (E.g. Pacman, Dig-Duh, Galaga, Galaxian, etc). I also have all the 'non-spinoff' pokemon games on my Special GBA cartridge and I have caught every pokémon!

I know my stuff!!! Razz
