How Much Would a Retro Game Console Cost if Adjusted for Inflation?

When I saw this picture, I was stunned by how much my Intellivision game console would cost today!

I bought the thing at a garage sale used I think for $40 with about 20 games, which was a pretty good deal. Then, I look at what it would have cost today if I bought the thing brand new fresh from the manufacturer. It's insane!

Blowing Into Those Nintendo Game Cartridges: Does that Really Work?

Just blow into it!!! It will make it work!!!

Before there were was CD-based video games, there were the plastic things known as video game cartridges.

They were clunky. Over time, they got worn down.

But that is how video gaming was, and I love it.

So, how did I get them to work? I blew into the circuitry, of course!

But did that really make any difference in working?

Sega Genesis is 25 Years Old…Feel Old Yet?

25 years...that is a long time am I right? What were you doing 25 years ago? Were you even born yet? I was born in 1987 (making me 26 years old), and my first game console was the NES. I loved that little grey box...it introduced me to the 8-Bit world! Mario, TMNT, Back to the Future...you name it, Nintendo had it! As I got older, I wanted more awesome graphics, and a neighbor (my friend of over 20 years now) owned this black beast named Sega Genesis...and it was awesome.

Resident Evil, one of the most recognizable game series of all time. The first game in the series came out in 1994, and blew us all away.
