For the Love of God! It’s Just An Emulator; Not the Real NES!
When I first saw that Nintendo was rolling out the Classic NES I was thrilled! I even got a tingling feeling in my heart; thinking they were going re-release the old system with upgraded cartridges or something like that. But when I started to read up on what it really was, that feeling went away with a quickness. With a sixty dollar price tag, that has now magically gone up to nearly two hundred or more, and only available from third party sellers, I should have known better. What I found was that this wasn’t what I was expecting, actually nowhere near it. It’s just a Nintendo shaped emulator, not an actual console! I was disappointed and broken heartened, so much so, that when the opportunity came to get one, I intentionally let it slip by. Yes, I had the alerts and pre-orders ready, but waved as it passed me by.
If it’s just an emulator, what is everyone so excited about? Yes, many want to relieve their childhoods by playing Super Mario Bros., Mega Man, Castlevania, Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest, Donkey Kong, Double Dragon, and Zelda, just to name a few, but are people that lazy or so non-tech savvy to realize they are being duped?
