My Gaming Childhood Was Pirated

Adam, from eGamer, writes, "South Africa is a pretty weird place. I was born at the end of 1980s and grew up with videogames from a very young age. My first introduction to the wonderful world of gaming was through a console known as the Golden China. To my knowledge, I didn’t know that I was playing 8-bit games on an illegally cloned Nintendo Entertainment System (or NES for short). The Golden China was one of the very first console clones of the highly popular NES, which came into prominence during the early 1990s". (Culture, Nintendo, Retro, Sega Mega Drive)
