Did Blowing into Nintendo Cartridges Really Help?

Chris Higgins:

So, dear readers, all signs point to no: blowing in the cartridge did not help. My money is on the blowing thing being a pure placebo, offering the user just another chance at getting a good connection. The problems with Nintendo’s connector system are well-documented, and most of them are mechanical — they just wore out faster than expected.

So much oxygen wasted in my youth…

You had to blow and create a little condensation on the cartridge.  THAT was the key.
