Oh, damn… it makes me feel like some sort of spoiled brat for saying this, but this just tears me up inside.
The above is what one lucky Kotaku reader was sent from Nintendo for having registered 118 Nintendo products with Club Nintendo since it opened. 118! Granted, they say it’s a form letter with a printed signature, but despite this, I find it to be impossibly cool. I am horrendously jealous right now, like you have no idea.
Me, I haven’t entered all my stuff on Club Nintendo yet, mostly due to the expiration dates on the coins. I think it’s like two years, but I wanted to wait until there was something I was sure I want before doing so. But even if I did, I don’t think I have anywhere near that number, except maybe if I counted everything… back to the NES. Oy. Of course, if we counted all that, I bet this guy would trump me even worse…
I guess I’ve just never been fortunate enough to buy every single Nintendo product that comes along (much as I’d love to), along with other games and stuff. Between the wife and myself, I do have almost every single issue of Nintendo Power, though, but that doesn’t seem to show on the Club Nintendo records any more (well, it used to be on My Nintendo).
Oh well. It’s a really cool little gesture and piece of memorabilia, and maybe someday I’ll be so lucky, but I won’t dwell on it. Life goes on… once that feeling of being punched in the stomach goes away, that is.
