Relive Your Misspent Youth by Watching Every Single Nintendo Start Screen

I have not watched all three hours of this video by NicksplosionFX. And several of the start screens—which appear to be arranged in alphabetical order—are fairly obscure. (Action 52, anyone?)

But as soon as I saw that boring-as-can-be start screen for 1942, my mind flashed back to all the time wasted on that terrible game. And there was a sequel, apparently! It was called 1943.
