Back in the day, you strolled down the video game aisle at Toys ‘R’ Us and perused the hanging, plastic cards for each game. All you really had to go on was the replicated box art and description, unless it was a game you had played or read about in Nintendo Power. You pulled out a paper ticket, paid, and retrieved your purchase from the video game cage worker. Looking back, it was kind of like solitaire Hell in the Cell.
