NAME: “VIDEO MANIA”, a new report from 1991
AUTHOR: A local NBC station.
DESCRIPTION: Back in 1991, when Nintendo controlled 80% of the video game market, the launch of the Super Nintendo was the gaming event of the season. The marketing techniques were nothing like the ones we have today but parents already felt pressured into buying a new console twice as expensive as the previous model.
AMUSEMENT RATE: “The 3D effect is, as you can see, pretty good by video games standards.’”Ah! If only Ken Shocknek, the reporter, knew what was coming, his mind would be blown away! Old news reports about video games are amazing. Nostalgia always knows where to hit and this video will inevitably take you back to your childhood’s therapy sessions. Good times!
