Photos - Donkey Kong
Just wanted to post a couple photos from the original 1981 Donkey Kong. I really ought to download the latest MAME one of these days. I love the immediate fun of '80s video arcade games, their short-term bursts of excitement. They're more suited to our hyper-fractured culture of the 21st Century than ever before. After all, who has the time?
What I want to know is why Nintendo has yet to release their classic arcade games like Donkey Kong and Mario Bros on the Wii Virtual Console? The current selection of arcade games is anemic, just embarrassing. Give me Donkey Kong! Give me Robotron! Give me Pac-Man! Give me Tron! What are we waiting for?!
