Bill O’Reilly On Nintendo

Back in the late eighties, Inside Edition ran this segment on Americans’ obsession with a crazy Japanese-made entertainment system called Nintendo. There’s interviews with professional Nintendo game councilors (you call a pay-by-the-minute number to ask them for gameplay advice), and discussion of magic swords and turtle shells. Youthful, charming host Bill O’Reilly can’t believe it; “All this is beyond me, I had trouble with Lincoln Logs! Remember Lincoln Logs?” He contained that inner rage much better back then.
