Before Zombies were Cool ...

... Zombies Ate My Neighbors.

We got a Super Nintendo system when I was a little older, and one year my grandparents bought my brother Alex a game called Zombies Ate My Neighbors. It is exactly what it sounds like. Zombies are eating your neighbors and you have to save them. It is my all-time favorite video game.


Why am I talking about this you ask? 

Because I still have my family's old Super Nintendo, and I am also in possession of Zombies Ate My Neighbors. And I played it today.

Super Nintendo -- so hipster, right? There's actually a way more lame explanation: I never learned how to work a game controller past the Super Nintendo one, so that's where my video game playing fully matured. (Except I did know how to play Mario Kart on N64, but that's all.) 


Along with Zombies, I am in possession of Super Mario, Donkey Kong and Jeopardy. (Don't laugh, my cousins and siblings and I played Jeopardy at my grandparents' house -- they had a Super Nintendo too -- like it was going out of style.)  

That is what I'm talking ABOUT. 
I don't play that often, but today I pulled out the ole Super Nintendo and gave it a go.


IT. WAS. AWESOME. 

Check these graphics hatas:



 It's so funny ... these graphics and overall game design are soooooooo out of date and old school but also soooooooo fun to play. What else is funny is that Super Nintendo is played solely on muscle memory. Solely. I grabbed that controller today to play Super Mario, and it's like my hands just knew what to do -- jump, shoot fire balls, get Yoshi to eat apples. I can't remember what I did three days ago, but darn if I can't remember EXACTLY how to defeat Iggy Koopa.

Y'all can keep your PS3s and your Wiis ... I'll stick with my Super Nintendo thankyouverymuch.
