Time Wastin'

Holy crap, am I ever wasting time this week. A big part of it is that I just found an emulator and tons of games for ColecoVision!

Shortly after I got this system, the Videogame Market Bust of '83 occurred and home videogames were ruled "Dead" according to many experts. This all changed of course three years later when Nintendo burst onto the scene with a system of its own.

The fate of my own ColecoVision console is somewhat a mystery. While I was away at college, my sister loaned it to a friend who wanted to hook into some nostalgia. Recently I asked this friend about the console and she said her family sold it at a garage sale...
