Summary: I really cant say enough great things about this system. This is by far one of the greatest things ever created, from the time it came out in the mid 80's to today. I can sit for hours playing Super Mario 3 or The Legend of Zelda on this classic of all classics. The games are fun and very durable. Nintendo fans everywhere can all look back and remember the good old days with this amazing system.
Summary: Great for playing the old school games again, expect the old school blowing the cartridge and placing it in gently to make it work. This is how games were back then, so dissapointed to see previous reviews mocking this, they did this when they were brand new. Got Mario, but don't bother with Duck Hunt new TV's can't work with the gun.
Summary: The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) is an 8-bit video game console that was released by Nintendo in Australia in 1987. In 2009, it was named the single greatest console in history. Bring back your childhood and play the NES. Original Super Mario Bros. come out on this and revolutionised gaming. NES is great for the true Nintendo Fans and Collectors!

Summary: Arguably the single most important console in video game history, Nintendo Entertainment System (hereafter referred to as the NES), along with SUPER MARIO BROTHERS, singlehandedly resurrected the video game industry after the historic crash of 1983-1984. Rather than reviewing the system itself, which has been done many times, I think many people may find the history how of this revolutionary console came to the videogame industry's rescue very interesting; I know I do.
A must-have for the serious gamer. You must own a NES to be credible!

Summary: This is my favourite platform on which to game. There are so many solid classics for this system that it is impossible to overlook if you're a collector or just an avid fan of gaming. Even though the NES is now very old, my experience with the console suggests to me that the system was well-designed, as many of the consoles with which I've come into contact have needed minimal, if any attention.
Summary: I bought this console because I am starting a retro game collection and to play the original games on the original console,I much prefer playing the real game than on an emulator.I love the controller and the general look of it.It looks Amazing and with a HUGE library of games to choose from,this is the best console from the 80's.There are no dislikes I have with the Nintendo entertainment system[Nes].This console is much better compared with the Atari 2600,Atari 7800...
So retro. Does not compute. Shutting down because of awesomeness.

Summary: This is one of the best consoles ever made. Sure sega. You do what NintenDon't, but that doesn't mean you are better than nintendo. And I'm sure you all know this, but Super Mario Bros. 3 is the best game for this system. If you were to pick a game to be your first for this, it would be Mario 3.
