As gaming controllers go, you can’t get anymore nostalgic than a NES controller; there is just something unique and almost magical about the grey, rectangular pad with its 2 red buttons and simplistic d-pad. And to celebrate this Nintendo pad in all its glory, we have decided to put together a list of NES styled products and gadgets that you can actually buy. Enjoy.
As every parent says to their kid at one point in their life: “You have no idea how good you have it. When we were young…” Yeah, it’s time to dust of that cliché as we bring you our top 10 gadgets that should have been around when we were growing up that kids of today probably won’t appreciate.
Did you grow up playing Pokémon Red, Blue or Yellow? Or do you still play it today as it’s still an awesome game? Well, the chances are you had a favorite Pokémon out of the original 150, and now is your time to vote.
The whole idea behind Google Glass is supposed to mean different things to different people – kind of like a one size fits all motto. But we feel that although the initial hype will be big (oooo look, a shiny new toy), we feel the product’s demise will be in the near foreseeable future.
Here is a conspiracy theory for all you conspiracists out there: Google will one day rule the world.
Well, it’s not really a conspiracy as it will happen. The greedy b****rds aren’t happy with making billions via their search engine, they want more than that and want to bring out products, buy other web properties and more – when will the greed stop!
From building with them, playing with them and even swallowing them, we have all played with LEGOs as a child. Well, dust off them old LEGO kits you have in your attic or get down to your nearest LEGO store as it’s now considered to be cool to play with LEGOs as an adult.
Robots, what’s not to like about them? Robots such as Johnny 5 are easy to fall in love with. And robots such as Optimus Prime are just pure awesome! What we are trying to get at is, if a movie has a robot then it’s usually going to go well as we as people tend to accept machines on the big screen and into our homes.
If you have seen Movies such as Jackass 3.0 or TV shows such as The Mythbusters, then you will know that footage in slow motion can not only be fascinating, but it can be extremely funny too. I am sure you will all agree there just seems to be something special about slowmo!
As kids growing up, the only graphics we had were 16-bit. Yes, we are talking about the days before consoles such as the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. And you know what? Those were the days. We feel that modern day game consoles now only care about the graphics and how many people you can mutilate on MW3 and the basic principle of enjoying simplistic games is now a thing of the past.
