I just watched this Retroactive video on Kid Icarus for the NES. Kid Icarus was one of those games I always wanted but never wanted enough to ask for it for my Birthday or Christmas(the only times I could get games as a kid). I had a NES hint book(all text) that explained how to do well at the first few levels of Kid Icarus and I read the text imagining how the game would look and play.

Did you play Kid Icarus or any of the later incarnations?

I got it for like a buck at a yard sale when I was a kid. One of my favorites.

Wow. That was a good deal. Did you beat it?

I think I rented this one a bunch, but never owned myself. I remember using cheat codes on it to beat it, I think.

I managed to beat it once. It's so incredibly frustrating at times. Getting turned into an eggplant was one of the most annoying things in any video game I've ever played.
