I was watching some of my YouTube crap I've posted up and I guess I never really grasped how great of a deal this was back in the day. Watch!

It's funny, in this day and age, we are happy to see one game bundled with a system. Back in the day of the NES, SNES, Genesis, we just expected a game with purchase. That's why there's so many idiot parents out there today that go to a store, buy a system, and head back home only to realize "Teh haloz not included?! No wai!!".That and because they're idiots. But I remember when my dad bought me my first console. My Nintendo Entertainment System. My games included Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, The Legend of Zelda, and Mike Tyson's Punchout. Of course, being a 4 year old psychopath kid, I played more Duck Hunt shooting the "UFOs", as I called them, rather than anything else. But that was one Christmas. Let me explain why this was amazing. The console was very affordable, the games weren't too much, and my parents were next to hobos! Then the SNES came out with one of my favorite Mario titles, Super Mario World (note: it's also one of the only titles I have in every format for every console available). But freakin' Genesis really had the chief selection. How many games was that? Ah, it's amazing what history teaches us. I highly doubt Nintendo and Sega were making money on these deals, but boy, did both of their consoles sell well. I wish companies would put out a bunch of games for their old consoles. I mean, are they really making money on Perfect Dark Zero anymore?
