These games are a shrunk-down hybrid of the old 8-pixel, beeping handheld games a lot of us grew up with combined with style elements of the revolutionary Game Boy. Oh, and each game case seems to come in different, bold colors.
More than just entertaining, these games bring us back to the good ‘ol days… Back when nobody knew, cared or could even imagine the implications of the world wide web… Back in the days when geeks had to call each other up to alert one another of the newest geek fads… Or if your big sister was tying up the phone line, you’d have to wait until Chess Club to share the latest and greatest.
Priced at £8.99, the Nintendo Mini Classics are like little pieces of heaven. Get ’em at Firebox.com.
