remember nintendo games? not the part you saw on tv, not the visual/audio interaction… the actual cartridges. remember those? they weren’t discs. most of their appearance was that nintendo gray color that somehow excited 12 year old boys worldwide into a frenzy every christmas. (although, some games were colored… i remember being blown away just looking at zelda before ever putting it into the NES). these games were solid state. no disc spinning at thousands of rotations per minute.
