Looking better than ever!
Today’s a big day for Nintendo fans, boys and girls. Believe it or not, the NES launched on this very day all the way back in 1985. While Nintendo existed in the arcades long before the arrival of the NES, it was Nintendo’s first home console that really put their name on the map.
Many of us wouldn’t be Nintendo fans today if not for the release of the NES. The arrival of that console showed that not only was the gaming scene alive and well, it could also thrive in the confines of our homes, rather than in arcades. The NES pretty much single-handedly revived the fledgling game industry and paved the way to where we are today.
In honor of the 37th anniversary of the NES, hit up the comments and share some fond memories of Nintendo’s first home console. Whether you played it at launch or have only experienced its games through the Virtual Console, we want to hear about how the NES impacted your life!
