Quality Lasts

Hello there readers, how was your weekend? Hopefully you’re refreshed and relaxed and ready for the week ahead (ready for the school run hopefully).

Over the weekend I decided that for the first time in a long while, I would just stay in and have a lazy weekend. That means planting myself on the couch and doing one of 3 things.

  1. Chilling out to my new album I got for Christmas.
  2. Watching movies and anime.
  3. Playing on some games.

See I am one of those people who is more than happy, in fact I aim to make my days as productive as possible. Yet when the opportunity arises to just have a day away from everything in front of a Dakota Mango TV Unit, I’m sure to take it.

And for Saturday this plan worked out quite well, as I was able to split my time catching up with my favourite shows, as well as working on a few personal projects with a warm drink placed on my Cuba Coffee Table for good measure.

However Sundays plan did not go so smoothly as we had family over, which at least meant I had my nephews over for the day.

So in order to take advantage of the situation, I took my laptop out from the Mango Sideboard and loaded up my Nintendo 64 emulator.

Yes it was time for some Goldeneye multiplayer.

And you know what, it was the most fun I had had in ages. Yes even I feared that the game had reached the point of aging too much. And in some ways this was true, yet despite the expected complaints that the graphics were rubbish I persevered.

And within 15 minutes all 3 of us were laughing and joking while running round like madmen letting virtual bullets fly.

And this got me thinking, this is a 20 year old game, surpassed in technology and functionality compared with today. Yet much like one of our handmade Jali Dining Tables, the quality and care put into the game has withstood the test of time.

Because quality lasts.
