As the Inaugural post to polluting the web with my simple thought… i’d like to offer a tribute!

Do you remember Paperboy for the orig’ NES? Oh what a game! the memories I have of that game. This game came out for the Nintendo in 84′ … great year. When I was like 4-5 years old that was a fantastic game to have. I mean sure Mario Brothers, Dig Dug, RBI baseball, Tyson’s punch out and all the others were great too. But I remember being especially fond of paperboy!

You got to see the houses that were your subscribers and those were your people. So you either tag the front door with a paper or if you were Gooooood then you rang em up into their mailbox!

Classic game! your job was to deliver to the blue houses (the subscribers) and to vandalize the red (non-subscriber) houses…. HA HA   SO, they’d become your subscribers. I always felt a little bad trying to smash windows with my leftover papers but it was always hilarious!

Then, in the midst of a regular 13 year old kids paper route you’d run into an array of “likely” hazzards. You know, cars, skateboards, lawnmowers, children playing, dogs…and of course RC Cars, Go Carts, and much worse.  The part I never liked as a little dude was when out of nowhere in the middle of suburbia an 8 foot TORNADO would come out and chase you down the street! HAHAHA     The part I luuuuuuved… was a woman would come tearing out of a house (USUALLY A SUBSCRIBER) and she would chase you down the street in a bathrobe and hairnet, and you would BRICK this woman in the FACE to get her to stop chasing you…classic!

Sure games evolved and became steadily more awesome, Goldeneye, Madden’s (all 45 of them), Halo, et cetera. BUT…there will always be a special place in my heart for paperboy!
