Things to do with an old NES

Personally I never owned a NES, but I know a lot of you may have done and a lot of you are good with a dremel, so check out how to mod the NES into an alarm clock or wallet and post ideas and retro memories below.

hahahahaha. Now, ain't that the friggin' truth!

Yeah, I love the misc. mods of the ole' NES you see around occasionally, although being an oldschool gamer I almost cringe sometimes seeing the things (read: IMO almost blasphemous) to that milestone. Don't get me wrong.... there are quite a few cool mods done with those things, and I can appreciate good quality craftsmanship as much as any other fellow modder.

It's a game system. And an old one at that. I don't think ones around it would have the use for condoms.

I'm kidding! sheesh.

The best thing to do with a NES is to play NES games, period.

Oh and the really BEST thing to do with a NES is to play MegaMan III

I miss the old Final Fantasy, I think I have my cartridge somewhere in storage. Anywhos. Gut the thing, drop in a hardrive loaded with old Nintendo game music, maybe mod the case with a clear one and some alternating colored leds and turn it into a Nintendo jukebox or something haha.

Yup, still work! Of course, depends on the condition/care the thing was in in the first place. Yeah, the old 'blow along the pins' trick. Worked 90% of the time, from what I remember as a kid. I just clean it with a solution now.

The battery used to save game data (i.e. Final Fantasy) dies over time. I've lost my save a few times once in a while. But sh*t, I can't complain about no senseless love story, cut scenes, or load times. I have all the Marios as well as Duck Hunt and like 4 guns! So many games...

I also have this decrepit Final Fantasy world map from 1991 or something--it's all taped up.

I don't think I could bring myself to ever deface a NES, I have sooo many happy memories of playing classics of Duck Hunt, all the super Mario's, castlevania on that lil ol grey box that it would be like defacing my childhood.

I really want to get my hands on an old NES again.....

I have an old NES,

an older Atari,

some Commodore 64's and a Commodore 128.

Have tons of games, but never really play them.

eBay!
