Why you must all bow before me, and your video games are meaningless

When I was a kid (very young--3 or 4 maybe even, certainly less than 7) we had an Odyssey. It rocked. It had clear vinyl things you'd stick to the TV screen. You could hit a ball back and forth. It had no integrated circuits and very little digital logic. The cartridges were basically jumpers on a PCB.

So I've been playing video games longer than most of you have been alive.

I'm thinking of eBaying one. Our 32" TV has a Zoom feature that just might make it so you could use one of the vinyl things on it if I made the image small enough. You should read some more of the stuff I linked to above. It's very cool visual design.
