Did You Know?


The producer of Nintendo Quest deliberately avoided the exact dollar amount of each purchase to keep the viewer focused on the journey instead of the cost of each game. A genius way to allow the viewer to understand the importance of the hunt versus the cost of the prize. See more »

Interesting watch
4 April 2017 | by kerryhyvarinenSee all my reviews

In a world of entertainment it is nice to find a film about 8bit gaming. Even if it is somewhat hyped, the story is kind of endearing. The goofy graphics make it comical and keeps your focus. It is a must watch if you find yourself running in retro gaming circles. There is nothing like playing these classic games, even if on emulators or originals. I was kind of supersized that I have owned, trade, and sold many of the items he was on a hunt to get.
