I was about 8 when the Nintendo first came out so I got to experience both of those. My parents also had a couple of these:

I travel with the wrong crowd.

I remember our first TV. I was about 5 or so. 3 channels, and the commercials were 1 minute on the hour, and 30 seconds on the half hour. Rin Tin Tin, Captain Kangaroo, Howdy Doody, Kukla Fran and Ollie, Superman. Double Bubble bubble gum with baseball cards. Still have a few cards. Wish I had my whole collection. We spent way more time outside than my kids did. My kids were about like the above pictures, sitting in front of boob tube mindlessly.

In two generations, kids will be born with thumbs the size of their ears.

LOL, My buddy keeps telling his kids to go outside and let the wind blow the stink off their butts.
