First Geeky Gift: Nintendo Entertainment System

For many of us born in the late '70s and early '80s, the 8-bit graphics of the Nintendo Entertainment System had a major impact on our early lives. (My favorite games were the Super Mario Brothers series.) In later years, a revised console was released that featured the top-load cartridge slot like the Super Nintendo (which means we didn't have to wedge another cartridge in on top of the one we wanted to play anymore). Member Greg.E.Meyer fondly remembers having to hunt for a VHF/UHF adapter to be able to play his Nintendo.

The Nintendo Entertainment System is still available for purchase on the Amazon Marketplace!
