Another day, another
thing to distract me from my self-imposed deadline for finishing the Dark World geeky pattern to give to the internet.
This time I’m going back to my gaming roots — the good ol’, blow the game cartridge when it won’t work, Mario-lovin’, Duck Huntin’ NES. Although I think that the N64 is my favorite Nintendo system of all time (I can hear some gamers crying and shouting in disbelief right now.) it was the NES that pulled me into the world of gaming.
I dominated some games — SMB 2 and 3, Contra, Maniac Mansion, I wondered around aimlessly in others — Legend of Zelda was a little advanced for an 9 year old Jess, and I convinced myself others were there only for the purpose of *not* being beaten — TMNT, Paperboy, Gauntlet.
But I didn’t care how difficult they were, I loved (and love) gaming. I watched the Super Mario Bros show *cough*OK, I still do*cough*, begged my mom to buy Nintendo cereal, and I carried that love to the present day.
So, I figured it was time to pay a little homage to my gaming roots.
I haven’t had time to stitch it up myself, (A little thing called the Dark World map has consumed my life.) but it’s a small project — you should easily be able to get to done by a weekend. So enjoy the gaming nostalgia.
Like always, if you decide to tackle the project, let me know! Tag me on Twitter or IG if you post there (I’m @craftinggeek at both.) or drop a comment.
