We didn't have video games in our house when I was growing up. So our full exposure was when we went to visit my cousin and we played original Mario Brothers (I don't know which system, because I really don't care, but it was the cool Mario Brothers. You know, the classic, but not very first original one? I'm not making any sense? psht.) and Noah's Ark. No one else has ever heard of this Noah's Ark game, but it was the best thing. You had to round up the animals (in pairs of course) and throw them into the ark. The horses were the hardest and you had to throw apples at them to get them to stand still long enough to catch them. Ah, good times.
Sweet muffins! I just found a YouTube video of it!
Then I got my brother an E-bay purchased 64. Then my other brother got a GameCube. And we now have video games in the house. My favorite game of all time is Harvest Moon. I wish it didn't cost like a million dollars to obtain a copy. My favorite group game is Mario Kart. We have spent some fun times zipping around the little tracks and laughing at my sister run off the edge, run into the wall, turn around backwards, blow herself up and in other ways enjoy herself :P
My sister, Rae, and her husband, Pete, showed us this gem of a video a couple of visits ago. It is brilliant and I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of time that went into it.
Enjoy :) And see you tomorrow for Retail Wednesday :D And if you haven't entered my contest yet, get over here and do it (or click on the pic at the top), because owls and notepads are nothing to sneeze at. Unless you're allergic. But who's allergic to notepads? that would just be weird.
