This Day in History
On Oct. 18, 1985, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) first went on sale in the United States
I would just like to take a moment to commemorate this historical event.
Happy Birthday, NES. I still love you now as much as I did when on the day you were born. Twenty years later, you still sit by my tv, right next to your offspring, the Game Cube. We anxiously await the next generation of Nintendo gaming. And while I may play with and bestow affection upon the other Nintendo systems, you will always hold a special place in my heart and forver remain my favorite. Thank you, NES. Thank you for Mario and Zelda, for Metroid and Kid Icarus, for Ninja Gaiden and for everything that came after you - SNES, Game Boy, N64, Game Cube - Happy Birthday.
Hang on, I'm getting verklempt.
Feel free to share your NES memories. What were your favorite games?
