This NES Top Gun gif reminded me what 90% of playing one of the only NES games I had as a kid was like.

Haha! Landing on the aircraft carrier was a pain in the nuts.

I was seriously bracing for that last long piece to go off-by-one.

Yes. It was the enemy graphic used for the last Challenging Stage before they cycled. A little joke thrown in by the programmers.

I love retro gaming, and even just got an SNES emulator for my Android (making the buttons bigger really helps). But I don't really get the appeal of this other than it being a catalogue for message board avatars.

And there's something extremely frustrating about watching this. Why can a simple Mario image make me angry?

Notes. It's the Tumblr equivalent of a retweet - basically how many times people have shared it on their own blogs.

It's because Mario and the background graphics are from Mario 2, but the Question Box is from Mario 1.
