I've hit the jackpot

While digging around in the closet of my old bedroom (David, the hubs, and I are staying with my parents in McFarland, Wis., for the rest of the week), I was surprised to fing a slew of old video game systems: A Genesis, a SNES, a PlayStation, a Nintendo 64 and a GameGube. I knew the GameCube would be there waiting for my return, but I had completely forgotten about the others.

I also found a slew of old games, including a few PC Engine titles (the best of the bunch: a pristine copy of Final Match Tennis), a few SNES and Super Famicom titles (the Japanese versions of Final Fantasy V and VI will be making the return trip to Seattle) and a few PlayStation titles (nothing worth mentioning, unfortunately). Oh, and Paper Mario and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time for the Nintendo 64.

Although most of said systems and games will be staying in Wisconsin for the time being, a select few will be accompanying me back to Seattle: The aforementioned PC Engine and Super Famicom titles, the GameCube system--oh, and a bunch of old gaming magazines (early issues of Electronic Gaming Monthly and Nintendo Power, mostly).

I don't know, Justin! I guess my memory is failing me in my old age :)
