Teens React to the NES

Hey there reader, want to feel old? Here's a bunch of kids reacting to the original Nintendo Entertainment System. It's easy to sit here from my high horse and point out how silly it is that some of them have never even heard of Zelda, or don't know how to load a NES but if you asked me when I was 16 to fill out a bunch of punch cards in Fortran I would have looked at you like you were crazy.

Dragon Warrior 3 does sound dope.

My one qualm with this video (other than Maisie Williams's hat) is that he mentions that blowing on the cartridge had a placebo effect. That's not the case. Blowing on the cartridge worked just not for the reasons people originally thought. Blowing on the cartridge would get the connectors wet and that would help secure a better connection. I was also TERRIBLE for the system, that why they sold those cleaner kits. It's also why you can't find a top loading NES on ebay for less than $100. Also if you think a design flaw like the NES's front loading connectors would kill a system today you obviously never owned a Xbox 360. Or more specifically 3 like I have. Thank you RROD.
