Remember actually buying your first Nintendo system? It’s funny because I can’t. But I do remember selling my Nintendo gaming system to someone for 70 bucks, which at the time was a total ripoff because the thing barely worked anymore. There was more blowing on the cartridges and pushing the power button than one could possibly imagine. If there’s one thing I don’t really remember about Nintendo it was the commercials. I used to always find out about games through friends and magazines, but for the life of me, I just don’t recall seeing anything on television.
So I decided to take a look to find some Nintendo commercials from the 80s that would remind me of the ever growing popularity the gaming system had back then. Hope you enjoy. P.S you’ll have to excuse the quality of these videos but doesn’t it make them that much better?
