Left 4 Dead for the NES

While you were out gang-banging zombies (or Teletubbies, whatever strikes your fancy) I was playing Left 4 Dead on a slightly older system. And by slightly older, I mean very much older.

Nintendo NES Controller Coffee Table on eBay

I have a confession. A few years ago we sort of lied to you by saying that the old NES Coffee Table was actually a coffee table.
