Happy 27th Birthday NES

Happy 27th Birthday NESThe Nintendo Entertainment System is probably my favourite gaming console of all-time. I came from the Atari 2600, which was great, and left the NES for the Super Nintendo, which was also great, but I played the shit out of the old 8-bit Nintendo. It came out on October 18, 1985.... 27 years ago today.

Whether it was Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, RBI Baseball, Tetris or Blades of Steel, I have so many great memories of playing on that console. I was the perfect age for such things when it invaded my universe.

Loved this system. I still have mine, but need a new cord for the system to the TV.
Best game I ever played was Baseball Stars.

Christmas 1987 when I opened my NES was the best day ever....my Parents had never seen me react to a present like that before or since.

Loved all the games previously mentioned, but what about "Base Wars"?? Robot baseball players..and when you're supposed to be out you get the opportunity to fight the guy at the base to be safe

I'd play that Excitebike game for hours. And it wasn't even that good.

But The Legend of Zelda will be the all best game. The summer of 88 was well spent discovering caves, coins and secrets.

Man, I loved that game.
