Retro Unboxing of the ColecoVision (1982)


As a kid, I played a lot of video games. I started out with an Atari 2600 clone called the Gemini by Coleco. I played that on a 12 inch black & white television. Eventually I started playing with my cousins’ ColecoVision. Even after they got a Nintendo Entertainment System, I was playing the ColecoVision. I would go back & forth from Super Mario Brothers on NES to Zaxxon on the ColecoVision. I have a fondness for the ColecoVision and I present it’s modern day unboxing.
