Nintendo Quest, a Documentary About One Man in Search of All 678 Original Game Cartridges



I guess I shouldn’t be one to judge how anybody spends their money, but if you can afford to travel the world seeking to buy 678 vintage games – star Jay Bartlett self-imposed the condition that he could not make any online purchases – wouldn’t you be better off putting a down payment on a house or something? He’s making a point about how great physical media is, I think…so maybe he already has a house that’s plenty spacious to hold all the stuff he collects (from my overflowing home office, sir, I envy you).

If this doesn’t conclude with him about to get that last game, only to be told that his cartridge is in another castle, I will be disappointed.
