Maintaining Classic Games (Part 1)


For our followers out there who are true nerds just like us: you likely have some involvement with gaming. Nerd or no, most people are involved in some sort of gaming community whether its PC, console, or even mobile. I take part in all of the above.


I myself take part in some adventures on Steam, but I also own a PS4, a Wii U, and plenty of of mobile games. However, even with all of the latest graphics and gigantic story lines, nothing compares to my love of my classic gaming consoles and my collection of vintage games. My collection isn’t huge, but I am certainly working on it. Unfortunately, with the recent popularity of nostalgic gaming, the price of vintage games has sky rocketed. You can still find deals at flea markets, yard sales, and thrift stores if the local dealers haven’t swept them up already to resale.

My current console rack contains an NES, Super NES, Nintendo 64, and a Sega Genesis (model 2). As you can tell: I am a Nintendo guy, at least when it comes to the oldies. Would I love to expand my console collection? Absolutely, but I have the core systems that I want except for a few select hand- held systems and the Famicom.

I digress. With all of this in mind and for the vintage nerds like myself, we have created some vintage game maintenance videos on our youtube channel. In this Part 1 blog, lets take a look at cleaning up the cartridges for the ever so classic, Nintendo Entertainment System. In this episode, we save a copy of Ninja Gaiden that by it’s appearance doesn’t seem salvageable.

I realize this is an off-shoot of what we actually do at Computer Depot Inc, but we thought we might mix it up a bit! Did you guys enjoy this blog? If so, send us requests for more video and blog ideas!
