@TheVGamer Yeah, that would be cool. Schools would have their own 'video game history month', and kids would do reports on different game characters.

Where's the N64? What about the 90s?! What about the GameBoys and other hardware?! What's next, the Wii?! C'mon! I suppose Red Dead Redemption will be next on the list of 'historical' games. Sheesh!

I'm gonna buy a DS Lite so I can play those old NES and SNES games for the GBA slot. Heck even Super Mario 64 has gone portable. I'll get that too!

The 90's were, I think, the Golden Age of video gaming. We had the NES, SNES, N64, and the GameBoys. I can see the future now: "Yes, boys and girls, I remember way back when I was a lad and all we had were 2D games and GameBoys. None of this fancy real-life hocus pocus. Yes, you have a question, son?" "Yeah. What's '2D'?"

The history of Nintendo goes back over a century into the late 1800s. They started out as a card game company, selling, you guessed it, cards. It was successful, but into the early to mid 20th century, they tried other work opportunities like taxi service and hotel services. Those jobs failed, and it wasn't until Nintendo got into video games during the 70s before they slowly became famous. Mario and Donkey Kong followed suit in the 80s, thus launching Nintendo into what it is today. The name 'Nintendo' roughly translated means 'Leave Luck to Heaven'.

The very first video game was called 'Puppy Pong'. The prototype actually had Snoopy instead of the little white pooch, which sat upon a yellow dog house with a built-in TV. It was made by Atari for Chuckie Cheeses. Hey, the kids needed something to do while they ate their pizza! Only 35 were made, due to the reason Charles Shultz, creator of 'Peanuts', complained that the puppy on top of the dog house was too similar to his Snoopy. They say that a Puppy Pong arcade in mint condition will go for half a million on up. It is the rarest, simplist video game ever. Google 'Puppy Pong' and see for yourself!

My very first games were Super Mario Bros. with Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros. 3, and Robocop on the NES. I would play for hours with my mouth agape. It was only the beginning... Here's a website where you can purchase refurbished video game products. www.nintendosforsale.com
