Welcome to episode 1 of Back in My Day A-Z! In this series, I introduce NES titles to my children, Riley and Giovanni, to show them just how great things were back in my day.

With many of the titles we’ll be playing, I was Riley’s age when I first played them. So I think this is a great time to introduce my kiddos to the classic, the punishing, and the thrilling library of the Nintendo Entertainment System.

Our first game is 1943, by Capcom. This is a great port of the arcade hit that added a lot of depth to the previous 1942.

Will Riley and Giovanni, kids that have their own tablets, love it or will they stick with their Angry Birds and Fruit Ninja?

Thank you for watching! Leave a comment below if you’d like us to play any NES titles that were your favorites back in your day.

    Adventures of Lolo!

  • I thought about that one. Decided against it since it’s puzzles and enemies can be extremely difficult and unforgiving. I did Adventures In The Magic Kingdom, because…you know…that one is SO easy, right? At least it had Mickey Mouse
