Eighty One

Owning 1 NES cartridge is a minor oddity floating around the house.

Owning 5 NES cartridges is having a small collection of treasured old games to play every so often.

Owning 20 NES cartridges is having a larger collection of treasured old games to play every so often.

Owning 81 NES cartridges (with more on the way) as I’ve discovered I do, demonstrates obvious early warning signs of a toxic obsession, one that will result in gradual Retrofication (a rare tropical disease that slowly mutates the patient into a random 8-bit console) and eventual death.

It’s getting serious now.  That’s enough NES cartridges to build a shelter for the homeless, form a barrier against  a 250km/h category 5 Cyclone, or – loaded one at a time – game continuously until the year 2020.

Hell, I even have a baseball game in there.  Baseball? Really? Am I ever going to play that? Certainly not, but I’m sure as hell going to collect it.  81 NES carts, and growing all the time.

Yeah, it’s serious now.
