I happily parted ways with my little gray video game machine that day as the sale pushed me over my goal and I proceeded to bug the ever loving crap out of my parents until they agreed to transport me to Wal-Mart so that I could pick up my brand new Sega Genesis bundled with Sonic 2 – the best game of all time as far as I was concerned.
