Maybe Im just getting old but a touching video about the impact video games can have on families. You can hear the love in the voices of both the father and the son.

I liked that video. I wasn't in a financial position to get a Jaguar when it came out (even at less than $200), and my kids were already heavy into Nintendo and then SNES. When the N64 came out a while later, that was the 64-bit cartridge system my kids wanted. Also, at that point, I had a used 486 PC from work and I was able to play shareware games like Doom on that while the kids were at the TV with the Nintendo...

My dad and I used to play the original NES together all the time. I remember getting it for Christmas in 1990 right before my parents divorced. We played Duck Hunt with the gun and then Track & Field on the power pad. I remember going to the store and being so excited to buy Super Sprint with him.

 

He was the one that got me by Jaguar in 1995 for $29.99 at Kaybee Toys and a few of the $5 games and taking me to every Kaybee around the area to get every game possible we could find. I don;t ever remember seeing any controllers out there at all, so I was never able to do any 2-player battles with him :( It wasn't until I discovered ebay in 2004 that I ever got a second controller.
