Kusielczuk's feat is even more impressive considering that he must have had to include a fair amount of objective garbage in the interest of completion. Don't get me wrong, I loved the NES, but a childhood spent renting games from the grocery store (it was a barbarous time) taught me that a good chuck of that 714 game catalogue suuuucked.

Anyway, scoff if you will, (and you will, I know you too well) but as someone who gave up on so many of those long-forgotten plastic slabs of frustration, I can say that Kusielczuk has pulled off no mean feat. I mean this man beat the last stage of Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters. And we hand out awards for acting?
