I had one when they first came out. I asked my perents for one thinking it was pure fantasy because back then the $80+ was a lot of money and I was around 7 years old. When I got the base system (no robot or light gun) I was in pure heaven. This heaven lasted for the next 6 years or so. If I had Zelda hooked up and ready to go at home right now I would lose a day or two of my life.
