NES: Once You Press Start, You Can’t Look Away

NicksplosionFX gives us a look at every NES (that’s Nintendo Entertainment System for you youngsters) start screen (in alphabetical order, no less!) and it takes about as long as your average art house flick — just a popcorn break under three hours. I can only imagine the time he spent putting this video together. His hard work is our gain — and we thank him for his dedication. Enjoy!

In the grand scheme of things, the time spent watching this is a drop in the ocean of time spent actually playing these games. How am I not 300 years old by now?

Our resident "Bob" (pictured here through the lens of photographer Jason DeFillippo) is in love with a woman who talks to animals. He has a fondness for belting out songs about seafaring and whiskey (arguably inappropriate in most social situations). He's arm-wrestled robots and won. He was born in a lighthouse on the storm-tossed shores of an island that has since been washed away and forgotten, so he's technically a citizen of nowhere. He's never killed in anger. He once underwent therapy for having an alien in his face, but he assures us that he's now feeling "much better." Fogarty also claims that he was once marooned along a tiny archipelago and survived for months using only his wits and a machete, but we find that a little hard to believe.
