80s Awesomeness! ~ 24

Ok, as soon as I hit post on this I realized I got all dyslexic with my postings. Oi. So look for Freaky Friday tomorrow. It's backwards week! Didn't you know that? O_o

Do not adjust your computer monitors for Duck Hunt was all about pixelation! If you remember those square, gray gaming systems with those lightweight square controllers from Nintendo, the original (none of the Wii or DS or 2), you should remember Duck Hunt in all it's awesome shooting glory. It even came with a gray and orange gun that you could shoot at the screen with.
An easy way to cheat was just put the gun barrel right up to the TV screen. It was all sorts of awesome. What's even better, I found a website where you can play Duck Hunt for free! OMG, awesome! But let me tell you, it's like a million times harder with a mouse. Those ducks move at warp speed, man. I tell you.

This brings back so many memories. I couldn't win this game even when I stood close to the tv.

Thanks for the link. The ducks do seem to move much faster in that version.

Wow, I haven't played this game in forever. I loved it even though I was terrible at it.

Oh, how I adored the original NES! Duck Hunt wasn't my absolute favorite because it could get pretty monotonous, but it was still fun. :-)

I loved Duck Hunt! I don't know what it was but I just got a kick out of it!

My last post went nowhere. Oh well. I found this cool little song on YouTube that I think you might enjoy.
