It's the happiness only video games could bring.
We all remember a time in our childhood when on Christmas day we unwrap a gift that we've been wanting for what seems like years (when it's probably only been for a few months).

He wasn't the first kid to go nuts over a console gift, however. The same concept was done two generations ago with the N64. But hey, original concepts are hard to come by, these days!
