Nintendo Kid

I grew up playing Nintendo. It used to be called- "Game & Watch" back then and one game is one unit. So if you want to play three different games, you need to buy all three units. Famous game back then was Donkey Kong.

I can't remember the game called "Ball," which happen to be the first photo but I remember playing "Parachute." There were others as well like- Egg, Octopus, Fireman, etc. Then Nintendo came up with the double screen version and the mini game & watch. 

A lot of adults now (like me) grew up playing those games and now, new and improved versions of the Nintendo are being played by our children. There's the Gameboy, Nintendo DS, Nintendo 3DS, etc. 

Then I happen to read this in the news today that Mr. Hiroshi Yamauchi, who used to managed the company passed away. You can read the article -- here. He is the force behind the success of our much love game. Rest in Peace, Mr. Yamauchi.
