Duck Hunting Games

One of the fondest memories of my childhood is playing Duck Hunt on the original Nintendo 8 bit system when I used to be a kid way back in the 1980s! My friends and I use to sit around and play duck hunting games and shoot thousands of ducks. We really had a ton of fun with a small gray plastic light gun that you would point at the screen. This toy gun had a built in laser for shooting ducks on our console TV.

Nintendo games and video games in general have really developed into something spectacular since first being introduced in the 1970s. The first system our family got was an Atari and I thought that was cool back then. Then we got the Nintendo and were blown away by duck hunting games and Super Mario Brothers.

I am amazed by the videos games that are around today. I see graphics that are nearly lifelike, with absolutely incredible 3D perspectives and scenes. The most popular games in this area are first person shooter games. However, these types of games have a lot more action and violence than the old school duck hunting games I grew up with.

I walked into a local video arcade last week and was shocked to see how expensive it is to play a video game for only a few minutes. These games are very complicated and I am sure they must cost several thousand dollars. Modern day video arcade games make duck hunting games and other types of games I grew up with look completely ancient.

I have not found a video arcade in the area that still has duck hunting games like they use to have back in the 1990s. Most arcades would probably go out of business by having games like that with such primitive graphics. People today want to play the ultra violent first person shooter games where there is a lot of blood and gore.

All video games are so addictive and essentially a big waste of time. The problem is, once you start playing, it is hard to quit. In fact, when I was a child, I even rode my bike about 4 miles to the largest video arcade in the city, just to go play games for few hours.

It would really be nice to find a casual and laid back video arcade in the area with the kind of classic and low key video games that I grew up with. Playing silly duck hunting games on Nintendo, or even combat on Atari, was fun for hours when I was young.

Within the last few months you have been considering that your hobby making handmade jewelry qualifies as a home based business that you would like to pursue.

  2. Do you have all your business ducks in a row and ready to enter the business world?
  3. Are you ready to make money now?
  4. Would you like to become a famous world jewelry designer?

For many people earning money is the primary goal for going into business and it will be up to you as to how large a business you would like to have. At each step of advancement money will follow.

They say to stay upbeat and positive when writing, but I would like to talk about success. The reason being that after you spend ten years, twenty years, thirty years, forty years or more and you look back on your business will you feel that you were successful?

In the beginning we have high expectations of earning a great deal of money and hopefully becoming well known in our artistic pursuit. And in the jewelry designing business this can happen.

But, if possible jump your thinking and imagination into the future to review your business and personal life backwards. Not everyone can do this, but do try this mental exercise.

The reason for posing this question is that when going into business there will be circumstances involving people, things and other matters that you cannot control and which will cause setbacks.

  • Do you have what it takes to continue?
  • Can you keep a positive attitude?
  • Can you limit your worries with constructive criticism?
  • Can you handle fear?
  • Can you handle discouragement?
  • Do you have drive and ambition?
  • Do you have motivation and energy?
  • Can you handle emergencies, obstacles, unexpected problems and keep your business active?

The above questions are not meant to discourage you but to help you think of your readiness to start an at home business. If you answered yes…go for it. Success is riding on your shoulders.

Money can buy many pleasures such as vacations, sport activities, theatre, fine clothing and much more. Of course, it will purchase necessities such as food, housing and medical care. More importantly it will open doors to meeting other people, opening new opportunities, enhancing your personal life, and providing new experiences and many memories of people who have purchased or worn your jewelry bringing happiness into their lives as well as your life.

As you recall your exercise of looking into the future and reviewing your life backwards, please write down the results. Years from today, open that sheet of paper and compare. It will be very interesting.
