Stuck on the original Legend of Zelda, or maybe the more recent Super Mario Galaxy?

Sure you could identify and solve your predicament in seconds online… or you could fiddle with Nintendo’s still active but tedious Power Line for automated tips on “the most asked about games.” But remember, kids: before calling, “Be sure you have permission from whomever pays the phone bill,” as 425-885-7529 is a toll call for those outside the Seattle area.

Seriously though, how many calls you think this gets a month? A dozen? Hundreds!? Enough to keep the service alive, I guess.
