I really am fed up with the attitude by Destructoid's writers that the 8-bit generation of games started with and is restricted to the NES and similar consoles. The 8-bit generation started long before that.
So, here is a real
8-bit Christmas greeting.
Yes, it was really meant as an advertisement (perhaps the first real viral video for computers?) as you'll see at the very end, but you don't get more 8-bit than this.
To those who remember this from the 80s, enjoy the nostalgia -- and chuckle at the last segment.
