Schooled: Wait, games can be funny?

So let's see, I am a gamer approaching 40 soon enough, and grew up with video games. I know a lot of people say that, but my dad used to have a 300 baud modem that was hooked up to our phone line in the early 80's and he would dial out and download Atari games onto the old school 5 and a quarter floppy disks for me to play. I grew up with Atari 800s, Colecovision, NES, SMS, and pretty much everything else in between then up until now. NES was the first console I was ever directly given, and I will never forget opening that and a new copy of Contra courtesy of my grandparents. Because of all of that, I have a pretty nice collection of games and a good bit of knowledge about many things in the industry as a whole. Never really was a pc gamer and only ever played a couple of games on the pc - Doom and Descent.

I mostly play platformers, adventure games, sandbox games and as of recently I have gotten lightly into RPGs, but never played them before. I have a lot of Nostalgia for NES and Nintendo in general, having played through a significant portion of their first party catalog on all of their systems (even the Virtual Boy). Guess that is about all for now, may add more later.
