Alphabet Remix - Naturally Normal Nintendo

These blogging prompts are brought to you by Nicole at The Madlab Post

It’s time for The Alphabet Remix - A Writing Prompt Idea Engine Treating A to Z Blogging Avoidance Disorders

Today's A to Z Challenge blogging prompts are all about gaming. N is for Nintendo and I picked this particular gaming console because it was the first (...I think) video game system that I played during my childhood years. I also selected it as today's topic because video games deserve some A to Z attention -- they are just as enjoyable as books, music, movies or any other activity that we use to pass the time. So, here are some ways to incorporate Nintendo into your blog posts for Letter N during the A to Z Challenge in April.

Nintendo Ninja Nation
Build your own nation of Nintendo Ninjas by blogging about tips and tricks on how to beat the levels on a particular Nintendo game that you are good at. You could also teach people shortcuts for certain actions or even show them repair tips on how to keep an old or sorta broken Nintendo game in working condition for as long as they can before having to buy a new console. These blogging options can be used for just about any device in the Nintendo family, including Nintendo DS and the Wii.

Noteworthy Nintendo News
List some little known, funny or outrageous facts about the history of Nintendo and/or its fans and their behavior over the years.

Nintendo Novelette
Make the gaming console a theme for your entire string of 26 posts and write a novelette, making each letter in the alphabet a different chapter of a story -- a heroic story about a suicidal Nintendo fanatic or a fantasy young adult fare about two teenage co-workers at a Nintendo store or a mysterious story that takes place at a Nintendo convention...there are numerous possibilities for a story surrounding Nintendo gaming.

So there you have it! -- Nintendo remixed for your Blogging from A to Z Challenging pleasure!

Now, the WINNER of the "Naming Names" Alphabet Soup game is...

There really is so much that can be done for the A-Z challenge!

The first computer I had as a young boy was an Amstrad. I wonder if you remember those?!

Video games. Yikes. My boys are total addicts, and quite adept at them. I, however, am completely hopeless at anything. UNLESS you're talking Wii fitness. I can beat my boys at so many of those, they've stopped trying. Well, not the snowball fight. For some reason, that one I can't do. I can also play Tetris, much better than either of them, so they won't play...That skill came from years of teaching keyboarding to middle schoolers, and if they finished the lesson for the day early, could play one of the games we had available. We're talking 5.25" actually floppy disks. Everyone wanted to play me at Tetris. I watched. I learned. Then I kicked A$$. Fun times.
Great ideas as always, Nicole!

Nice post for gamers to relate Nintendo (or anything you're passionate about) to the A to Z Challenge.

When getting my posts together in 2011, I first tried to see if I could come up with 26 variations on the theme. It's an outline habit. . .

Now you've got me thinking about next years challenge. Good motivation!

I've never been too much of a video game player. The A to Z of computer solitaire might be pretty boring. On the other hand...

I remember upgrading from a 286 to a 486 and thinking I was big time with my big bad computer. Not sure why I thought of that. Maybe the Nntendo.
