A couple weeks ago, the thought came into my head that I had played NES at my grandparents' house out in Ohio. I asked my parents if they ever had the NES, and they told me that my grandparents had not. But I was certain that I remembered playing NES there. So I went to my brother and asked him.
He said that he also remembered playing NES at our grandparents' house. Now I was sure that it had really happened. The chance of both my brother and I being wrong is quite slim.
I thought some more about it and came to the conclusion that the game we played had been a baseball game. The one thing I remembered about it was that it had a view from behind the pitcher.
I then asked my brother if he had any idea what type of game it had been, and he responded that it had been a baseball game. Then, without any prompting by me, he elaborated, saying that it had a view from behind the pitcher.
Now I was certain that I had played NES at my grandparents' house. But my parents still didn't believe it. They knew that my grandparents' had not owned an NES. I asked if they had perhaps rented it, but my parents shot this idea down as well. They didn't think that there was a place to rent games near where they lived in rural Ohio.
A trip to my local Funcoland a few days after this got me some more games, including Bases Loaded. I was quite interetsed to try this one out, so right when I got home, I popped it into my NES. Amazingly, I found that I was able to hum the music that plays before the game begins perfectly. I began to get a little suspicious.
Then, as the game started, I saw that the basic view was from behind the pitcher. I've found the game! I remember thinking to myself.
What started out as a faint memory in the back of my head turned into a hunch, which then became the truth. And, now that it's the truth, it got put where it belongs - the NES Memories section of NEStopia.
