Nintendo: My Real Introduction to Video Games

 

My family's first video game system, was the Magnavox Odyssey, which my father purchased sometime in the early 1980's. I still remember playing the bowling game with him, that alternated between blue and green screens, depending on which players turn...

Graphics at the time, Great Games, Works Most of the Time, Controllers

Sometimes non-cooperative, old

Oh the memories

 

I remember being a kid and my dad used to try to get us to play Atari. We were too caught up in playing out NES system. We had games galore that came in a wide variety which was absolutely great for our home of two girls and a boy. There are fighting...

I love the NES

 

I probably received this as a gift in the early nineties, but I still play it. I believe that a lot more went into this console as far as games strategy, game plot, game characters and game skill. The only thing that was bad about it was that when the...

Good system with classic games

Had to blow on games and console when not working

Consumer review by:

The NES...

 

So this is my review on the Nintendo NES, the system that has stood the test of time, led the industry for video games, and... collected dust.

Fun factor, games

Age, hardware, more buttons on the controller might be nice

Top loader is the way to go!

 

Those folks over at Nintendo sure knew what they were doing when they released the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) to the U.S. in 1985. This console showed up at just the right time as the video game market was still reeling from the crash of 1984,...

Great exclusive games; fun and simple gaming; the top loader is a durable system

The common front loader is troublesome; a lot of terrible games

Consumer review by:

The one and only, and still the best!

 

You can be sure that the NES is still played almost every weekend by my friends and me. We all grew up on this wonderful machine, and have no intentions of letting it pass. While the performance of the NES is getting worse, just a blow on the cartridge...

Fun for everyone, cheap games, brings back those days of long ago

Sometimes you need to wrestle with the games to get them to play

Consumer review by:

You don't have to blow anymore.

 

Almost every gamer out there knows about the insanely popular Nintendo Entertainment System, eh? I still say it is one of the best gaming consoles ever made and on August 8, 2006 I managed to do the impossible and find every licensed Nintendo ever made...

The Nes2 not only looks cool but it plays well too

It's a shame the video outlets are gone

Consumer review by:

all right kiddies history time

 

All right if there is one thing I can't stand is young kids today running down the NES. Yes your PS2's and your Xbox's may be more powerful and run all those fancy movie scenes and realistic graphics, something that the NES doesn't but if it wasn't for...

a lot of classic games

got to kick box it to get it to work

Nintendo NES: - It's The Nintendo Entertainment System And It's Really Rad

 

The 80s is a decade that everyone has a story about. Looking back on the vague memories I have of it, everything seemed so different. If I had any wish in the world I think I would wish to have been born 10 years earlier just so I could experience this...

Accessories, Some of the Best Games Ever, Classic

Controller, Blowing Into The Console, Not Being Manufactured Anymore

The Nintendo Entertainment System: Can I Afford The Games Now?

 

"... they stand on the shoulders of giants"

the games, the memories!, came with 2 controllers, it was sturdy

poorly designed controller buttons, cartridge part is awkward, outdated hardware

Product Specifications

The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) is backed by classic games such as Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda and Excitebike, the NES was instantly a hit. Its graphics were far superior to any home-based console that had come before it, leaving gamers with the feeling that their homes had been transformed into real-life arcades.
