I'm curious what all the fuss is about.
Well, for starters, make sure your nintendo 8-bit system is connected to the internet. Oh, you need an internet connection from service provider for that by the way. Once you've connected your nintendo 8-bit system to the internet, please connect to nintendo's site. Remember? You cannot play your cartridge game unless nintendo says so.
All done? Okay, press Start Singleplayer Game. Wait for connection to nintendo.
Okay, start playing. But don't do anything tricky or sudden maneuvers with your character! You might lag and get frustrated that your maneuver didn't go as planned, or didn't start as quickly as you'd hope it'd start. You were so close!; you were 1 inch away from being hit the last hit to death. You almost dodged that swing! If only you had 60 more miliseconds of time!
Ask yourself "why do i have to connect to nintendo?" See if the answer is really THAT good of an answer.
