This next one goes out to all the awesome geeks in the world! UNITE!
As the legend goes, you certainly cannot claim the geeky/nerdy title unless you own a plethora of outdated video games on various ancient consoles.
But, to obtain the ultimate title within the Geekdom world, you must spend an outrageous amount of $Moolah$ on some sort of a relic from the past video game world.
…and what relic may bring you that title, you ask?
…It’s the coveted World Championships game, which was for the N.E.S. platform.
Although, owning the regular run-of-the-mill GREY cartridge will not suffice…no No no!…you must have the GOLDEN cartridge!
…hey stop staring and keep reading…
Yes this is pretty much the Holy Grail of video games!
For those of us that are too-hip-to-be-square then I suggest skimming through THIS WIKI ARTICLE outlining the history and background of why this particular cartridge is so praised among certain video game collectors.
…I’ll give you a hint, there were only 26 of these badass golden cartridge’s made, and they were only given out to the winners and runners-up in a 1990 video game contest put on by Nintendo Power magazine.
Hmmm…that might shed some light on why the price tag is so damn ridiculous. Nerd-i-licious!?
One copy recently fetched a jaw-dropping $17,500
I could think of a few things I would have rather blown that amount of ca$h on, but then again everyone has they’re own wacky reasons for doing what they do.
To find out who would shell out that much money for an 8-bit game… read the entire article via THIS LINK.
Until next time…I’m out!
