First Love

I still remember sliding the cartridge in for the 1st time, pressing it down, closing the flap, pressing the POWER button.

Picking up the controller, the palms of my hand pressed against the glorious right angles, eyes wide with wonderment as the curtain rises, Luigi jumps from left to right, landing on Mario’s head.

And the title drops, Super Mario Bros 3. 



Love at first sight.
