When We Played Nintendo

Those times, it was not yet nintendo ds.  But Papsie was among the first ones in their neighborhood to play nintendo.  When we got married, during weekends, we played nintendo.  I cannot beat him.  He was so good at it.

I remember that I played around acting pissed so that he’ll give me the chance.  The deal that time was you had to win to play.  I remember, too, that we almost argued of who’s going to attend to the baby.  We were so much into playing nintendo that we almost forgot that we’re already parents to a child.   😀 Silly people we were.  I do not know if it was nintendo to be blamed or our immature or selfish being.  Any of the two can do, I bet.

But do you know that in 1963, Nintendo had tried businesses like cab company and a love hotel?  Also, I guess you would be interested to know that Nintendo roughly means “leave luck to heaven”. It’s Wikipedia who’s telling.  😀

  1. Nintendo! Family Computer, right? My God! I miss that! My brothers, our cousins and I used to play with that, too. Super Mario Bros. was our favorite! The word, Nintendo, brings back so many nice memories! 🙂


  2. hello, babypink! how are you? yes, family computer. it's so much fun to remember! 🙂 how can one forget the super mario bros.? ha ha


  3. “Leave Luck to heaven” – well they did pretty well didn't they 🙂 The only game I played at the beginning of personal computing era is “Crossfire” on an IBM XT. Before that, its pretty much just Game-n-Watch.


  4. i miss nintendo. we had to borrow or go to game stations to play and waste our meager allowance. my bro almost ruined his high school because of it. 🙂

    salamat at pinaalala mo.


  5. rommel, i have no idea what an IBM XT is. 😀
