Tecmo Bowl

Can you believe that on the original Nintendo (NES) was once the best football video game?  Follow that link to see a video of it.  Be sure to listen to the sound effects, too.  Clearly the graphics have not aged well.  (Or should I say “not clearly”?)  This looks pretty bad, even for NES standards.  I don’t think I’ll be getting this on the Virtual Console (on the Wii).  But watching the video clip does bring back some good memories, and it probably will for you*, too, if you ever played it.

* That is, unless you were unfortunate enough to play me at this back in the day, and you got “schooled” so bad on a regular basis that you still have emotional scars.  If this is the case, just let it go, man, because I’m the master of video games, and there’s nothing you can do about it.  🙂

    yeah, that brings back memories… I’m glad to say games have came a LONG way… I read the other day about a new device being developed that that monitors your brain activity and implements that into the game. For example, if you are playing a first person shooter & you get nervous or anxious then the accuracy of your shot will be affected. Interesting concept. 🙂

    Interesting?? That’s getting a little creepy, man. Big Brother is upon us. You have been forewarned!

    Man, I ain’t lettin’ nobody read my brain waves! They’re, like, protected by nondenominational copyright law, or somethin’.

    Besides, that would make the game too easy, because I’m super-cool. Plus, my extreme psychological powers might damage the game.

    And you never know if this is one of those conspiracy theories, where they want to read your thoughts so they can put advertisements in there. They would put ads in your dreams, too. I’m sure companies would pay big bucks to have product placement in your dreams. Sorry, my dreams are not for sale. Well, unless someone wants to make a movie of them, because I do have some cool dreams where I save the world. I think those would be great to see on the big screen. But I only export dreams — no importing allowed.

    TW… the easiest way to protect you brain waves from being scanned is to where a cap made of tin foil!

    “Where a cap made of tin foil?” (heh heh)

    I don’t need no STEENKIN’ tinfoil cap! Get this — when I’m thinking something that’s very private and confidential, I make my thoughts encrypted. So even if someone were able to scan my brain waves somehow, they couldn’t understand the important stuff. See, I’m all prepared in case there’s an alien invasion or if the gubmint tries to read my mind. I have nothing to fear…
