Nintendo Entertainment System

What is it?

This was the definitive console of the mid to late 80's - it more or less rebuilt the video game console industry after the great crash of 1984. If you were playing games between, say, 1986-1988, you were probably either playing on a Commodore 64 or the NES.

I remember the debates raging while I was in high school over which was better, though I now see that it depends on what type of game you enjoyed playing. I still prefer a computer, since I like programming, but the NES has many great games and had certain technical aspects that made it better for certain types of games.

What do you have in your collection?

I've got 4 NES systems, and around 20 games for it.

What are you doing with it?

Occasionally I play games on it.


None at this time.
