Welcome to the The Giveaway Geek, the geek that keeps on giving; I am pleased to announce that I am giving away a, Nintendo NES Classic Edition.
The giveaway is for 1 Nintendo NES Classic Edition System. This contest will end March 5, 2017 at 11:59 PM CST and is open to US and Canada – Some exclusions apply.
I remember when I was a kid, I was at my father’s friend’s house playing Joust on his Atari, I thought it was the coolest thing in the world and I asked my Dad for an Atari for Christmas. Christmas rolled around and behold a gift under the tree that looked promising labeled for me. I excitedly opened the box expecting to find the Atari I had asked for only to discover this thing, Nintendo Entertainment System; I tried to hide my utter disappointment. My Dad suggested we set it up so we did and plugged in the cartridge that came with the system, Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt, what happened next was the complete obliteration of my young impressionable mind!
The gaming world has changed a lot since then but I will never forget the feeling I had when I sat in front of the TV for the first time with my new NES! That kind of thing sticks with you, shapes a part of who you grow up to be! Now I can relive those memories with the Nintendo NES Classic Edition System!
The system has the look and feel of the original NES system complete with boxy, wired controller that hurt your hands after an hour of game play, the 8-bit graphics and having to physically interact with the console to switch games, no blowing in cartridges though. Do you remember those all in one cartridges that you could get, like those 100 in ones? Were they pirated? I have no idea but I had a couple of them; this system is like that only it comes with 30 classic pre-programmed games and it’s official Nintendo hardware.
Some must have items to compliment the system that are not included are 10 foot extension cables and an extra controller.
Games that that are included:
Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest
Donkey Kong Jr.
Double Dragon II: The Revenge
Mega Man 2
Punch-Out! Featuring Mr. Dream
Super Mario Bros.
Super Mario Bros. 2
Super Mario Bros. 3
