My childhood in a box.
Earlier this week we ran the story about the first release of Windows 1.0 in
1985, when some of you, who are reading this now from a Windows 7 machine,
weren't even born yet.
If that didn't make some of us feel old yet, there's also another important
birthday in history this week. A quarter of a century ago, on October 18,
1985, Nintendo sold the very first Nintendo Entertainment System console in
FAO Schwarz New York City.
While the NES wasn't the first successful video game system at home, it was
the start of a worldwide gaming giant whose dynasty continues today.
Some of us may call our PC as the home for our favorite games today, but for
many of us our early gaming experiences were on the NES.
