20/20's 1988 "Nuts for Nintendo" special

“Nuts for Nintendo” 20/20 special from 1988. Even 20+ years ago, people accused Nintendo of purposely limiting its stock to increase demand. Also, check out those Japanese lines for Dragon Quest III!

Re: 20/20's 1998 "Nuts for Nintendo" special

That's a great video, such a window to the childhood I'd forgotten!

Love the headline from a newspaper c. 1984 - The video games boom is over...

26 years on, video games are a bigger industry than movies!

Thanks for posting this Tenser, I found it really interesting.

Also love his comment on the violence in video games (if only more journos said things like it) - "They're animated characters..."

Re: 20/20's 1998 "Nuts for Nintendo" special

I like the part about the guy who traveled 1,000 miles to get a copy of Super Mario Bros. 2.
I would never travel 1,000 miles to buy a video game, that guy really wanted the game obviously.
