How to Hook Up the NES

on August 10, 2009 2:00 PM

This is a classic video for anyone who grew up with an old NES console. I remember quite vividly the technique and skill it would take just to start a game. Certain cartridges you needed to blow on, others you needed to stuff a controller on top of, some you even had to physically clean before each game. Who can forget the classic coax cables, those were the days even pre red, white and yellow jacks, simpler times. This gave me a good laugh especially once he got it started and the screen went blank, old memories. I wouldn’t trade my NES experience for anything else in the world.
