If you were an NES gamer, you will probably know how to earn this badge (it is unrequestable, and is auto-triggered if you do the right thing). If you don't know how to earn it, you probably don't deserve it.

Those who know how to earn it: Keep the secret to yourselves ;)

    Blowing at a the bottom of a picture of an NES cartridge on my monitor didn't trigger it. The trigger must be bugged.

    Excellent. My childhood spent in doors and getting fat on the couch while playing hours of Nintendo has finally paid off.

    The system is flawed, FLAWED I TELL YOU!

    That and anyone who grew up with an N64 can learn it as well.

    @ Anyone who mentioned anything about this in this thread:

    If you were an NES gamer, you will probably know how to earn this badge

    Does not say:
    You will only know how to earn this badge If you were an NES gamer
    Further!
    Those who know how to earn it: Keep the secret to yourselves
    Need a secondary badge:

    One of my earliest memories was learning to play Pac-man with my (sadly, late) grandmother. I started with an Atari 2600 joystick in one hand, and a Colecovision keypad in the other. A Commodore 64 soon followed. Eventually, this think called an "NES" crawled into my bedroom.

    I need no badge to confirm or validate my gaming legacy.

    Edit, 1 minute later: but I snagged it anyway. :D

    Seriously though, my trolling aside, I'm impressed with both Lincoln's coding aptitude and Vanilla's power. That was pretty freaking awesome. Now I'm interested to see what other hidden achievements there are... or what will someday emerge.

    I've been gaming non-stop for over years 35, yes since Pong. I have owned all the Nintendo systems, but my foo is weak - I don't have a clue lol.
