I find the following of other – similarly themed – blogs almost as enjoyable a past time as writing one myself. It’s comforting to know there are other people out there striving to preserve pieces of gaming history as well as exciting to see the retro phenomenon through the eyes of others.
I wanted to take a moment out to throw +100 respect and a whole stack of win at the Famicomblog. Seriously, Sean is a powerhouse of posts and love for the Nintendo Famicom. More than that, he’s got a way of elevating the simple, colorful Famicom cartridge to more than just a delivery mechanism for Nintendo games. He turns them into a form of art, taking countless pictures of Famicom carts in the unlikeliest of places and arranged into brain bending geometric patterns while writing with more authority on the console itself than is probably psychologically sound.
It is Sean’s blog which led me to my boxed Famicom, and now – as of a couple of days ago – the purchase of my first bulk lot of 27 assorted Famicom carts. I can’t read the writing on most of them, but that doesn’t dampen the love.
Thanks Sean, for maintaining a towering demonstration of Famicom dedication and general retro love. I can’t imagine the bliss of going to bed at night knowing you’re safely surrounded by over 500 Famicom carts. Awesome.
