    Written by ,
    When I was younger I almost never got new games. I had to luck out at the video store with weekend rentals, and I had the Hot Knowledge of Nintendo Tape Magazine to assist me in picks—though with the slim rental choices it more often than not came down to looking at box art.

The greatest video game Christmas presents of my life (and maybe some of yours, too)!!
