    Default It’s 1991 And Nintendo Is Ruining America’s Youth



    Has Nintendo taken things too far? It’s 1991, shoulder pads are in, and America’s kids are NIN-TEN-PENDENT<. Yeah, that's right. Addicted video games thanks to Nintendo, which at the time controlled 80 per cent of the market.

    The kids and parents who have been hypnotized and traumatized by cutting-edge ’90s graphics and an Italian plumber’s moustache and ability to grow twice his size after ingesting a mushroom are in group therapy. They struggle with the price of the console (US$200!), the peer pressure (Sega isn’t as cool, mom!), and the exploitative marketing (buy, buy, buy!).

    You think it’s bad, parents of 1991? Just wait until they discover the internet.

    I would be more into the Sega in 1991, but that's two years before the beginning of my existence.

    200$? Let me buy a new PS3 with that much instead of that SNES

    Wow... this seems like a lot of money for a not so amazing station (compared to systems today) but we will say the same thing 21 from now about the Wii and the PS3 and Xbox 360

    You both seem to forgot inflation.

    $200 in those days is possibly about $600 nowadays

    No, I didn't forget about it, I just like the idea of how low the numbers where.

    I still remember my mom bitching about gas costing so much in the 90's.

    America just gets cheaper and cheaper.
