I actually have better luck replaying old NES/SNES/Genesis era console stuff than I do old computer games.

I just bought a old NES and replaced the 72 pin connector. Going to give the case a once over so it looks better as well. The previous owner wasn't a smoker, so it isn't yellow or anything, but it definitly could use some cleaning. Found the original SMB games, Double Dribble, Commando, Ninja Gaiden, and a few others to start off with. Still need to locate the gold cartridge editions of Legend of Zelda and Adventures of Link, Mike Tyson's Punch-Out, and a few others that I consider "must haves". The ones I have bought play well and are still fun. Thanks to the new connector I don't even have to bang on the console or anything to make them More surprisingly, they actually look better on my TV then the Wii downloadable versions (where applicable of course). I have no idea why that is, does anybody else?

I also have started building up some Genesis games, but sadly the system I found had some issues so I returned it to the seller. Maybe after Christmas I will go find another one.

My step-son keeps asking me why I don't buy one of those cheap clone systems that plays like 3 different retro console cartridges and supports multiple controllers. I tried explaining that he is missing the point but he simply doesn't get it.
