… And it works. Why? Well why the hell not? Also, where the hell does someone get that kind of LEGO, especially gray and black?!
If you owned an NES, games didn’t always start the first time, so there was this idea— no one really knows where it started, but it spread like wildfire way before the world wide web, that when your NES was being picky, you had to “blow the dust out” so it could get a clean connection. The fact is though, that this was just a placebo and blowing into the cartridge usually did more harm than good.
Sure, those old NES games might not have been as good as you remember, but at least it’s free. You can still pretend to blow the cartridge first, if you want.

Hardcore video game collectors will pay big bucks for all kinds of incredibly rare pieces of video game history, but $55,000 for a yellow NES Legend of Zelda prototype cartridge? Not with a prototype version of the game, but a prototype version of what would later be a shiny gold NES cartridge.
