Donkey Kong - The Original

Folks, I feel 12 years old again. While looking for something completely different in the cellar day before, I found the old original Donkey Kong by Nintendo. I put 2 new batteries in and felt transported back into 1984!

I got quite a number of laughs and a thumbs up while on the train on Friday, it must have triggered some good memories amongst other member of my generation. For all of you too old or too young (most of you), this is what I am on about:

And boy it is so much fun, forget about the iphone games this takes the cake! Only just crossed 100 points so I will keep at for a week or two. Anyone else remember these?

PS: And before you start, I have owned every game console since the commodore 64, have 2 Xbox 360s and just let go of my PS3...
