NES (Nintendo Entertainment System) Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 The system that saved video games. If anyone remembers, video games were left for dead after the crash happened in 1984-1985. When the NES came out, it saved video games and revolutionized the genre with side scrolling games and adventure games that were never possible on Atari such as Super Mario Bros, Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man, Castlevania and Contra. The NES wasn't perfect, as the blowing on games got old and there were a good handful of awful games released for the system. That's why I tend to rate the Super NES higher as the game library was better and the graphics/sound a vast improvement from the 8-bit days, but the NES is a classic game system that can still be pointed to as the catalyst that helped get video games to where they are today. -- Submitted By: (kingbk) on June 6, 2013, 11:21 am - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I recently found out that the blinking light/screen glitch is caused by a chip called the 10NES chip that was supposed to prevent game piracy, but ended up hurting the paying customers. You can find instructions online on how to disable the 10NES. Nintendo realized that they had screwed up and removed the 10NES on the revised NES-101 toploaders. I have a toploader and it still works beautifully. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on June 3, 2013, 8:53 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Ah, the NES! Playing 8 bit games. Those were the days, Archie. over time the damn cartridges wouldn't work. Everyone and their dog would blow on it to get a game to work properly. Frustration before game play, that's gaming. LoL -- Submitted By: (Jp) on June 2, 2013, 8:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

5 Never boned. I know some people think it boned with the Wii, but this...is the classic 8-bit NES we're talking about. Stil rocks. Mine's still hooked up. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 7, 2010, 6:29 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 This is hard to say as a Nintendo fan, but I vote for the Wii. Not because it's a bad system in itself and innovates with the motion controllers and the casual gaming. But that's where the problem lies. It's the first system to focus almost entirely on that demographic. Hardcore gamers take a significant backseat. It hasn't fully boned yet, but will become that way if the next system doesn't add back focus to the hardcore gamers as well. It's a shame because the hardcore games out there they do have (Fallout 4, Mad World, etc.) are equally fun and very creative with the Wiimote. Nonetheless, it's still the start of the turning point. Awesome party system, poor solo-player system. -- Submitted By: (ocfernan) on October 2, 2009, 6:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Kitchenbreak, those kinds of comments make me feel old. We are dating ourselves with things like that. I agree though, it was a great console. It reminds of a simpler time when we weren't so hung up on games because people still went outside and got fresh air and exercise. These were rainy day activities. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on July 23, 2009, 12:21 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I think everyone remembered this. Blowing the cassette for minutes to play your favorite game. Great console! -- Submitted By: (kitchenbreak) on May 27, 2009, 3:56 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
