Nintendo Gaming

 First, I came across an original B&W Game Boy at a garage sale and started collecting games for it. Since then, I have started collecting original NES games, SNES, Gamecube, Nintendo DS and recently Wii video games.

A few interesting Nintendo facts;
  • Nintendo was founded as a card company in 1889.
  • Game Boy was the first video game console played in space.
  • The original Nintendo Entertainment System was the best-selling gaming console of its time, the NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983.
  • Game Boy Color outsold all other gaming handhelds at the time by a huge margin.
  • The Nintendo 64 (N64) sold 350,000 of 500,000 available units during its first three days on sale.
