Artifacts of the Analog Age: The Game Genie
This is “Analog Agent Benjamin” coming at you this week with…. The Game Genie
Man, the Game Genie was the best thing to have if you ever wanted to win at a very hard Nintendo game.
Now I know that some NES games already had game codes in them, but a lot of them did not, and this thing would let you have as many lives as you wanted and to start on any level. And the best part was that they made Game Genies for just about every game system that came out in the 80’s & 90’s (NES, Super NES, Game Boy, Sega Genesis, and Game Gear) The only bad thing I could think about the Game Genie was that it took forever to enter the game codes you wanted to use in the game.
Did you have a Game Genie when you were a kid? What games did you use it on? Did you feel like a dirty rotton cheater?
