In Progress

   Remember the old days?  Where it wasn't the graphics that made a game, but rather the content.  The days when bits reigned supreme.  Remember how jaw dropping the first 64 bit system was?  I had never seen Mario in 3d and I have to say, it was quite astonishing.  Remember your first Super Nintendo?  Funny how Mario always seems to be there at the birth of a new console, a harbinger of good times to come and great memories to make.

   This is the stuff I grew up on, and it has a very special place in my heart.    When life gets me down, I revert to the classics to pick me back up, and they haven't let me down yet.  Cartridge Chronicles is my outlet, to appreciate these games that defined my childhood.  And to rip on some of the not so good games, because lets face it, there were more than a few.

   So what are your favorite games?  What are your favorite consoles?  Least favorite games?  I would love to hear some comments, so keep them coming.
