Although the NES had its highs, giving us some of our favorite gaming memories, it definitely wasn’t shy about drilling us with stinkers at regular intervals. Here are the 10 NES games that made us cry, starting with number 10:
Wrecking Crew — At least one of the crappy single-screen Mario games deserved a spot on this list, and we went back and forth between this and Mario Bros. for a while. This one won out b
Potheads are known for being forgetful, but someone took the stereotype to the extreme, leaving 7,000 pounds of marijuana valued at $3.6 million just floating off the coast of Orange County, California.
Unless you spend a bunch of time in a garage, it’s not always second nature to know which power tool to use for which ill-advised do-it-yourself project. It’s bad enough that our projects always end in injury and the shame of paying a handyman — or wilting as we beg our disapproving father-in-law to work for free — to fix up our failures.
Imagine tearing down the highway at 180 mph, then careening off a pier, having your ride transform into a watercraft and burning through the wet stuff at 60 mph. What used to be the stuff of James Bond fantasies is now reality, in the form of the Sea Lion, an amphibious beast created by inventor Marc Witt.
Some guys are blessed with a natural sense of style. They choose the right look effortlessly, turn ladies’ heads and get other dudes to subconsciously copy their looks. These guys actually understand what matches what without having to pull out a color chart and a protractor.

Leave it to Ferrari to make the hybrid car phenomenon seem more panties-dropper than tree-hugger. The Enzo, which is totally into pulling a three-way with gas and electric power, always seemed like one of those concept cars that was more of an oddball pet project of some self-indulgent engineer than something that would ever pull up next to us on the road.
It’s so tough to find a job out there that no gimmick is too desperate or pathetic. Just look at a guy from Minneapolis who was so hard up for a job that he blew his meager funds for some face time on an electronic billboard, begging someone — anyone — to hire him.
The best and worst aspect of email and instant messaging is that they make it easy to blow people off and give you at least a glimmer of hope that your recipient hasn’t seen your unreturned messages. Now Facebook wants to zap all the uncertainty away, updating the Facebook Messenger app so message-senders will be able to tell that recipients have seen messages.
