When the cartridge gave you trouble



Ah, a Nineties memory. You’re a kid, enjoying the new Super Mario game but your mum hasn’t hoovered the house in days and dust got into the cartridge. Time to pull it out again and give it a blow.

Childhood gaming


My first memory of a Nintendo game was in the early 1990s when my Mum’s friend’s partner brought round a game of Super Mario. We were too poor to afford our own console, so it was a great experience for me. Inspired by a conversation with my friend/colleague Sandra about our childhoods.
