This is it! The big one! The Glorious! The Amazing! The Godly! The game that everyone hold's to standard when they think of old school Super Mario Bros.! The game that could be considered on par with the epic-ness that is Terminator 2! The game that when people think of NES, they think this game! The game that could be considered the greatest Super Mario Bros. game of ALL TIME!
Nothing makes you feel more nostalgic than that pea soupy screen., doing your best to angle it correctly in the light so you could see what you were doing. Playing Super Mario Land, Tetris and Pokemon until the wee hours in the morning. Finding four double A batteries and hope they lasted you for your trip.
That's right, those feelings go back and your Game Boy are 25 years old today!

After many years of patience and a few paychecks, I finally completed a portion of my collection that was pretty important to me. These games are wildly popular, therefore they are harder to find because no one sells them! Patience and a little luck paid off as I finally own the complete collection of Mega Man games on NES and SNES.
Mortal Kombat has to be one of the best video games of all time. Yesterday I posted about how I got a top score on Ms. Pac-Man. Also in that same arcade was a classic Mortal Kombat machine. I usually see Mortal Kombat 2 or 3, but I never see the first one. So I popped in a quarter and gave it a shot.
Finally, a milestone! Well actually it's not the biggest score out there, but to me, it was quite the accomplishment. This past weekend in Ludington, MI, I visited a pretty cool Retro-Arcade they just opened a little while ago named Quarter Cafe & Retrocade. This weekend, I finally made it onto the board of Top Scores!
If you stick to WGRD.com each week, you will see the weekly Games To Try Before You Die postings. A moment where I take you back in time to when video games came on a cartridge. Sometimes we even do current gen game, depends on how I feel that week. It's been the same usual thing each week, I think it is time for a change.
There are quite a few internet reviewers out there, but one of my favorite that shouldn't be missed it Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw, better known as the voice behind Zero Punctuation. He has covered many games as they come out today, but this time, he goes back to the past.
