Remember when the original Nintendo arrived for sale and you thought it couldn’t get any better? A group of teens were recently shown that video game system for the first time, and their reactions, while hilarious, were less than supportive of the old school gaming system.
The Fine Brothers, a team well known for showing kids old technology, created the reaction video on September 7, 2014. The video has received nearly four million views in three days.
The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), may have revolutionized the gaming industry, but it was not without its faults. Remember blowing into Nintendo discs to remove dust?
A group of teens between 15 and 19 were asked to check out the system and they were shocked by the cartridge’s used to play games, and the overall clunky design of the NES.
As an added bonus, Maisie Williams, who plays Arya in Game of Thrones, is one of the people who makes an appearance.
Here’s a fun fact from the video: Nintendo actually warned customers that they should not blow into their game cartridges, the combination of air and moisture was known to erode the copper connectors on the cartridges. Despite that warning, the only way to play many games after they were owned for a short period of time, was to blow inside of them.
