NES Sports Set (Pictures)

Hey Everyone!

It was a nice spring day yesterday, but we didn’t get to spend much time outside. My wife has been feeling the physical effects of pregnancy. I had her laid up yesterday on the couch with her feet up. Before she got home from work I was able to get the laundry worked on, the pets fed, the liter box cleaned, the dog poop scooped, and the mail sorted. I was about 3/4ths of the way done with dinner and had the dishes cleaned too! We had homemade chicken quesadillas, they are delicious. She has been watching the Netflix series ‘Heart of Dixie’ and she really enjoys it. I spent a couple hours catching up with friends online and playing a few games, before heading back downstairs and watching some shows with her.

Somewhere in the middle of all of that I ran over to my parents house to pick up an old game system, that I now have room for.Β  It is the classic NES Sports Set Nintendo! The only thing missing out of that pack is one of the controllers, which I can only assume was broken in rage a long time ago.

Here are the games we still have for it: (Sorry I didn’t have time today to figure out how to get the pictures straight up and down) 20170418_175922 (1).jpg

(Again with crap photography) Here is the system in the box:

My co-worker talks about this game all the time so when I say it I had to take a picture and send it to him haha.

And here is a classic Zelda game that goes for about $30 online today. It has a sweet gold flare to it that most other games didn’t.

Each of the games pictured are from 1985, three years before I was born. They are classics now in the gaming world and collectors like myself love them. I know that the system still works but at this point don’t think I’ll get it out. Besides if I want to play Nintendo games I’ll install an emulator on my PC or play new ones on new machines. πŸ˜€

Today was payday, and I have a whopping $0.70 in my account as per usual lol. Ah, if only I was kidding…

That is where I’ll leave it today, I hope you can relive some retro game fun! What old games, if any stand out to you? What is your favorite console? I would love to know what you all think!

See you again tomorrow! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

  1. What a collection! The nostalgia and jealousy I’m feeling πŸ™‚ And the Gold Zelda!! Notice in the first image/bottom row Super Mario Bros/Duck hunt on the one cartridge, did that one ship with the console? Not seen that before.

  2. I feel so old now! LOL. I remember playing Super Mario Brothers and Zelda. My daughter still has her SNES and she has some of the same games. I think she also has things like Monopoly, Jeopardy, and The Game of Life.
    I do have to say that this post brought back some memories!
