I was in my high school years that I was so addicted with Super Mario games. I skip meals even transportation in order to save money to play these games.OK, I can't think of any reason somebody wouldn't! Well, these things came out around 1990 I think. That was my middle school years. Anyway, Super Mario III (Well, at the time known probably as Super Mario Bros) was awesome!
You are right. Nothing beats Nintendo games. It is so addictive. You may skip your meal just playing this game.
Of course I remember Super Nintendo. I would play Donkey Kong there when I was in grade school. I was really disappointed when my cousin broke it as I would always play with it after school.
