RPG Analysis

First off, thanks for taking the time to check out my blog. Here I'll write about my experiences with NES and SNES games. I know of the fantastic reputations of these console generations, so I'm making it my mission to finally play these awesome (and less stellar) games.

I will call this blog "FreshNES" because having never played an NES game I have a fresh perspective of them (and because I think puns are funny). I really hope that you find my pictures and ruminations entertaining.

A little bit about me... During my impressionable years in the early 1990s I was too young to fully enjoy the magnificent NES. Fortunately, I did eventually convince my parents to buy me a Super Nintendo and fond memories ensued. I vividly remember guiding Link through dungeons in Link to the Past, and somewhat ruefully recall Baby Mario's ear-splitting wails in Yoshi's Island.

From there I graduated to the glorious Nintendo 64 and it was official: I'd been bitten by the polygonal gaming bug.

Providing myself with the opportunity to truly experience and enjoy these gems is the reason I have decided to become a video game collector. The 8- and 16-bit games have great appeal to gamers young and old and have withstood the test of time.

So to get things going I picked up a bunch of these classic games. I have roughly ten games for the NES and five for the SNES so I can hit the ground running. Now, to just find a nice old tube TV. I hear these games look better on the old televisions compared to today's flat screens.

With that said, I think a trip to the thrift store is in order.

Very cool, there is definitely some great stuff in there. I can't imagine never having experienced the NES, so you're in for a treat!

If you're going all out for a CRT, I'd recommend finding a Sony Trinitron if possible.
You have no Idea what you are getting yourself into. ha ha  You are going to become a NES addict.  There are soooo many good games to play.
Never played an NES?  A lot of people here are going to be very envious of your lack of experience with the NES.  I personally cannot wait to read about your exploits.  Just one suggestion:  photos and videos if possible!

I second the Togo's suggestion no a CRT.  While ApolloBoy can give you more of an "in-depth" on exactly what to get, going to any thrift store and spending $10-$20 will net you something nice.  You can go flat if you want, but if you want the original I recommend a convex screen.
I can admit I never had much experience with the NES back in the day as I'm only 24 and growing up it was more of the 16-bit era stuff as a young child. But I remember my cousin having a NES with a few games.

Personally I got a Sega Genesis as my first console in '93 but then graduated to the N64, X-Box, X-Box 360 and then BOOM! I became a collector and started grabbing every and any console I could. as I found great joy in re-living my past and wondering off and playing games that were older than I am.

But I must admit I'm glad to see your passion is growing and see you setting a sweet goal. Their are many adventures that wait.
Really looking forward to hearing about your NES experiences. If you have any questions about the games your playing let me know and I'll do my best to help out.

Also looking forward to more puns!!
Thanks for the supportive words guys! It's going to be fun to play these games, and I'm fully aware that it won't be an easy task. But I'm just looking forward to seeing my collection grow while experiencing some fun games.

And to clarify how I missed out on the NES. I was born in 1990 in Australia (a country that doesn't see much video game-wise). In '93I moved to Canada and that was when I learned what the Nintendo was. I can't remember when I got that SNES, but I remember playing up until I was 10. The N64 came out when I was six which I think I got when I was seven or eight.
That's really awesome.  Enjoy!
