    Jay Bartlett is a retro gamer and a collector. He has accepted a challenge. He has 30 days to collect all 700 Nintendo Entertainment System games from across the United States. The only catch is that none can be obtained from online auctions. Robert McCallum is the filmmaker behind this documentary project, who shadows Bartlett on his journey. The film seems extremely unscripted and fun, while offering a chance for every retro gamer and NES fan to live vicariously through their adventure.

    And while you're at it, follow the official twitter feed for GBATemp. Links are in both mine and Another World's signatures. :) (Mine is all the way at the bottom in small, orange letters.)

    On topic, this sounds awesome and should be fun. That'll be one heck of a road trip.

    This is quite the adventure! I can't imagine myself trying to find 600 games.

    Most of them shouldn't be a problem to find, but some of them... I wish him lots of luck on.

    And some of them I wouldn't want to find and probably shouldn't be found by any sane person! lol

    i think its 700 normal games, not counting rare demos/promos/competition carts.

    seems cool but idk kinda pointless.

    Nah, it needs to be a bit more Hollywood.​
    First, start with a tagline: "In his search for all 700 NES games, can one man find love?" Get Adam Sandler to play Jay, Chris Rock will be his goof-off best friend who's also, conveniently, a pro filmmaker. Kevin James can play the NES. Call it "Captain N" for name recognition and get it out in time for Christmas. It'll be the feel good family film of the year!​
    Hey, Paramount, let's get this ball rolling. Have your people call my person.​

    He does not have those carts. The ones he had in that episode were Pat the punks.

    Yes!

    Featuring cameo by R.Kelley as a mom & pop store clerk. Because no ensemble bro comedy isn't complete without glorifying a rapist.
