Random Time! - Roger Ebert was addicted to TMNT on the NES

An old bit of commentary from Roger Ebert…

“I got one of these sets (NES) at home, and I started playing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles with it. And after a while, after a week of this, I’d find that every time I had a spare moment and every time I came home, I was in front of the set playing with these mutant turtles. It got to the point where it was making me quite unhappy, because I was so obsessed with it, and I finally unplugged the machine and said, ‘That’s it for Nintendo.’”

I think we found out why Ebert is so against games! It’s clear that he was really enjoying TMNT, so much so that it scared him. That’s why he swore off gaming and took the stance he has today. Man, now it all makes perfect sense!
