The original NES was released in the USA in 1986 when I was all of 5 years old, and although I don't remember exactly when the console was first brought into my home, I pretty much grew up with the thing. Everyone who had one remembers the Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt combo cartridge that shipped with the system and likely spent countless hours trying to defeat both. While at some point I was able to defeat all eight worlds in Mario, Duck Hunt was forever a confounding and frustrating experience.
