What’s Next for Gaming Paraphernalia?

Gi - When Nintendo formed as a company in 1889 they were not gearing up to release a Mario Golf game by the next summer. They were a playing cards company. Computer games would not exist for almost another eighty years, and that is a long time for a company to twiddle thumbs before finding their true calling. As Nintendo spent the decades shifting operations from running hotels, taxi firms and producing snack foods, they would continue to produce cards in one form or another. Even now in the present day when it comes to games, playing cards still have a card to play. (Culture)
