I died and came back to life…. Nintendo is life lol
So my mom came to my house last night and brought me a gift because she knows that I’m obsessed with comics, video games, collectibles, and all that nerd stuff people are doing all out national events for. When I was about 5 years old my mother bought me the NES and thus began my fixation for nerdy things that would haunt my waking thoughts for pretty much the remainder of my life up until this point.
I was chillin in my house being a nerd browsing through peoples twitch streams to see what would excite me to vegetate in front of and since I was expecting my mom to come anyways I had to hide the bongs and paraphernalia, burn incense and crack a few windows (know what I mean)?
So I hear a knock at the door and I see her with a random box, nothing special. She hands it to me and when I open it I about had a serious cardiac arrest in my living room. I couldn’t believe my eyes. I was baffled, bewildered and absolutely paralyzed. Then tears of joy in the form of rivers gushed forth from my tender fan-boying eyes as I beheld one of the most beautiful pieces of technology to be created in the past 50 years. Along with my vintage and nostalgic attention arresting 80’s toy came The Legend of Zelda in the golden cartridge.
I’m taking a quick moment to write up on my blog about this momentous occasion in my life. The fact that I have been binge playing all night since I got the darn thing is nothing I will be ashamed of. I’m just so thrilled to be playing this game the way it was intended to be played. In classic Nintendo Style on the NES.
One last thing…
So I saw a Legend of Zelda on Ebay for $2999.99. Did my mom drop some dough on me like that? Or did she just happen to get a good deal? Not asking, I’m just sayin that it is pretty cool.
