Do you remember your first motorcycle video game? For our team here at the WiseGuide it was the side scrolling mayhem of avoiding obstacles and hitting jumps in ExciteBike. If this sounds familiar, it means you were also having endless fun with your Nintendo NES console back in the mid-80s-to-early-90s. Oh, what a time to be alive!
The recent release of Nintendo’s miniature remake of the NES console certainly has us feeling nostalgic for that classic game, and by some holiday miracle, we were able to get our hands on one of these perpetually sold out consoles. Against our better judgement, we decided not to bust open the box immediately to get our ExciteBike fix – but rather we’re going to make one lucky reader’s holiday seasons a little merrier by giving this thing away! All you have to do is sign up for The Wise Guide newsletter.
