That NES PC looks neat.

Also, I don't take a lot of photos, but I do have some from the emulator rig I just made for a friend. I will post them soon.

My brother and I got the NES for Christmas 1987. It wasn't the first game system I owned, but it is the one that turned me into a gamer.

My very first system was of course Atari 2600. Later down the road, I remember my Mom asking me if I wanted Sega Master System or Nintendo for my birthday. I asked for a Sega. After receiving that for my Bday, I felt I made a mistake and should have asked for the NES, especially since practically all of my friends had it. I think I was the only one that had Sega. Oh well, Sega was ok. I later ended up buying Nintendo though Smile

Cool! There are good video games for the Sega Master System too though- I know a number of them were ported to the Sega Game Gear- that's my main video game system now. (I got it for my birthday years ago and I still love playing it every now and then.)
I don't play video games as much now, honestly- but every now and then I love to get together with my brother and a friend and play classic NES and SNES games. Or play games on the Nintendo 3DS or Wii with my nephews and nieces. Smile Cool

My first NES was the basic system with no game but I did get Tecmo Bowl at the same time.

Started on the Odyssey 2. Still have my Commodore Vic-20 and Commodore 128 computers.

I enjoy the NES but the Sega Genesis is my favorite system.

We know from the commercials what you'd do for a Klondike bar, so what would you do for a Nintendo game? Very Happy Cool
Would you pay up to and possibly over $100,000 for one?
Check out this incredibly rare and sealed NES video game on Ebay.

I have the Power Pad which is the generic version of the Family Fun Fitness Pad. Laughing It runs about 5 dollars.

Cool! I remember playing Track and Field for NES on the Family Fun Fitness Pad as a kid. Very Happy Cool (This was at the neighbour's house- I didn't have one myself.) But it was definitely a fun concept and in some ways, really ahead of its time.
I remember even through the late '90s seeing some really old NES stock left over at a K-Mart- for the longest time this one store had this "Aerobics" video game that I had no interest in at the time- I remember thinking, "Who wants to play an aerobics video game?" (Assuming you would actually control aerobics participants in the game and lead through the exercises- lol. Laughing )
I finally figured out that the game was meant for use with the Family Fun Fitness Pad and then that made a lot more sense. Smile

Exercise based games for home systems go back to the Atari 2600, as seen in the Foot Craz and its two games, Video Jogger and Video Reflex: http://atariage.com/controller_page.html?SystemID=2600&ControllerID=17

Cool! Thanks for the link to the Atari Foot Craz.
Very Happy Cool
I never had an Atari 2600 myself, but I do remember loving playing Millipede on Atari 2600 at a friend's house.
