Remembering the Power Set

When I was a child my brother and I were lucky enough to get a Nintendo Entertainment System. I know many of you received the same, what made ours special to us was that our console was a “Power Set”. When I was five my father went to the states with my uncle, my uncle was a truck driver and my dad had gone with him to Denver, Colorado. When they returned my dad brought with him a gift for my brother and me. It was the Nintendo Power Set, the best bundle known to any child in 88-89. Within the Styrofoam moulds was a Power Pad, a NES Zapper, two controllers and a game cartridge with three titles on it, Super Mario Brothers, Duck Hunt and World Class Track Meet. To this day I still have the entire Power Set. Fond memories of cheating at track and field by pounding our fists on the pads to propel our runners to the finish line, I remember placing the zapper directly on the television screen to get a new high score in Duck Hunt. I hope you don’t judge me too strongly.
