Happy 27th Birthday NES

Happy 27th Birthday NES

The 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.


Who else loved the NES?
