Default Nintendo Anniversary Thread: 125 Years of Perpetual Doom

Good day, fellow forum members. As you may or may not know, today is a very special day. It was on this day many years ago that something very near and dear to many of us was born. I'm talking, of course, about the establishment of the Office of Postmaster General in the United States. It's been exactly 225 years and the USPS is doing great. So hooray for them. Oh and also some video game company was apparently founded on this day in Japan as well or something? I don't really know anything about all that, but I guess we can squeeze that in here somehow. Anywho, let's use this thread to write about our favorite memories regarding the USPS and the Postmaster General. And I guess video games too if you have to.

I remember the first time i got something in the mail....it was a bill. Good times...

one of my favorite nintendo memories was getting Melee for christmas. it was a game that i played at my cousin's house and i fell in love with it. I also fell in love with the gamecube controller and system. Girls? No thanks. My only love is a silver box with a handle on the rear. Baby got back. If i had it, I'd post a pic that was taken of me when i opened the present with Melee inside. There was pure joy that mornin. I think that was the only game I ever played for 24 hours straight.

I preferred their previous logo which was red. I don't know why they made it grey.

It's a hate-hate relationship. I rage that my packages were lost and they genuinely don't give a damn. I can always not count on you USPS, you bring me much needed anger in my life!

Ah, no, Nintendo is booming.

Anyway, yeah, Nintendo's the boss. I probably wouldn't be the video game addict I am today without playing Paper Mario: Thousand Year Door. I played that game hard, and it was during when I couldn't read well. So, Nintendo helped me entertain myself AND learn how to read, thanks Nintendo!

Most of my favorite games of all time are from Nintendo. That being said, I don't always agree with the decisions they make.

You guys are a bunch of losers. This thread was only relevant yesterday.
