remeber how pissed you were when you got one that wasn't rewound? It added an extra 8 minutes of intolerable hell to an already painful movie night filled with tracking problems and crap.

no offense to anyone else but the Zelda series were the best games of the 20th century. They had solid stories and rich environments. Final Fantasy was a close second. OOT is still regarded as the pinnacle of RPG console games.

I agree with you. Remember how great the open-world was in that game. Also the Gerudo Valley music :-)

I had an old NES system, and to make it work properly I had to put in a cartridge, push it down til it clicked, stick a screwdriver into the slot and let it back up halfway til it bumped the screwdriver XD

Whats funny about this is that you actually had to find out that this would do the trick!

Haha, true! :) I probably realized that it only worked properly when the cartridge was halfway between the up and down position, so I just stuck something in the slot to keep it from going up all the way

Both of those were awesome for their time. Road rash, swinging a chain to smack somebody while driving 100 mph on a crotch rocket!!
reply

I know!! The best part was stealing the chain from someone else. I also had lots of Sonics, but I think my favorite was The Lion King. I got down to the point where I could beat the whole game in half an hour! Hahaha Such a fun waste of time!
