I wish I was not old enough to know about those.. back in the days we used cassette tapes instead of CDs because you could record music off the radio with those..

Those were the days! I only ever had a few cassettes, but we did have a bunch of VHS tapes. I bought a N64 a few months ago but only got one game for it so far.

oh fancy! I had one of the older versions where you had to blow on the cartage and what not to get them to work..

Yepp, I had a SNES but ended up trading it for a guitar, it went to a good home though so I'm not worried.

Wonder if any of those still work now days..

Yepp, just need to be maintained. Some games might need special cartridges might need special care though; mario paint didn't seem to want to work quite as well. Oh but you shouldn't blow the cart as it turns out since it can damage it...*has done that for years*

Might be what killed ours then..

Lol no worries.

I got to thinking today, and there's a big enough interest in old rental stores like blockbuster, Hollywood Video, Video Update and the rest, I wonder if there would be enough people interested in bringing one back. I've been interested in making a business, but I'm not sure if there's enough demand for a rental store. I'm conflicted because I know there are a lot of people who enjoyed going to one on a Friday, picking up the cases and having a look at them to see if it was something of interest to them; it was something more special than just scrolling through Hulu. So I'm thinking about it anyway; If I sell old games I might be able to appeal to collectors too.

I don't know yet though haha.

you could sell beer along with it! There is one dvd/vhs rental store here that survives because they also sell beer!
