Game System Commercials

That pic is not me.
I liked all the retro stuff. Anything that reminds me of my childhood really makes me all giddy. I figure I post a few of the commercials that I remember for all the systems that were out during my childhood.

For all of the commercials , I always wanted them to spend more time on the game play. I wanted to see the awesome graphics, the awesome game art on the carts. The just plain Awesome!!

The quality is pretty poor and I didn't have, or don't remember the color plastic screens that you placed on the monitor. But I played this game alot with my Aunt. Yes, my aunt and I would battle it out for high scores. She was really good.

I don't remember this commercial. Especially the Rob the Robot that supposedly comes with the systems. But to be honest I don't remember any Nintendo commercials, I just remember seeing it at the store, and saying"whats that?!"

Then the big war between SNES and Sega Genesis. Blast Processing, whats it do.?!I don't know. I really didn't see a difference between the SNES and Genesis games. Infact, I thought SNES were a little, just a little better looking.

Never owned a Gameboy, played them. Just didn't like the small screen. What the hell is the deal with the robot and shooting lasers from their finger tips. Its like pointing and saying,"Oh, I got you" but then lasers shoot out and you kill your buddy. Trying explaining that to mom, oh, I just melted billy with my finger laser.

What is it and Nintendo putting robots into their commercials. Are we all gonna turn into robots some day if we keep playing Nintendo??!! Well, "I'm safe, I'm don't own a Wii, nor do I plan on getting one.

This one I remember well. Still shittin on Nintendo, which was a shame. I don't remember Nintendo shittin on Sega, I could be wrong. But an angry black dude shouting at me to get a system. Lets just say that I had my Sega CD.

There were lots more systems, tons of commercials. But for me, this is what I grew up with. Lots of fun times. ........................I did do other things besides play shooting and eating beachie birds......berry picking......playing in the ditch.........making mud pies........see, lots of fun times with Little Darryl.

Fun commercials. I think that last one did speak the truth about Nintendo though... They refuse to make a disc-based console until just recently with the Wii! I bet once everyone is going full digital download, it will take some time before Nintendo would do the same.

Berry-picking??? lol. Once I discovered video game, it became an exclusive pastime activity for me, besides drawing and writing that is.

OH, yeah!! Where I grew up there were berries all around where I lived. The Marsh was covered in blackberries, Bakeapples, Marsh berries,.

The tree line had mint berries, squash berries, Gooseberries.

The fields had wild strawberries and raspberries.

There are tons of berries!!
