I have been obsessed with the NES from the day I received one on Christmas day in 1987. I had a subscription to Nintendo Power and sent in the Player's Poll sweepstakes card each month. Then in my worst gaming moment of all time in 1991, I traded in my beloved NES and carts for a Sega Genesis at Funcoland. I had to have Sonic the Hedgehog and EA's NHL Hockey. I bought in on Sega's marketing scheme that the Genesis was for hardcore gamers and the NES for children. Though the Genesis had some sweet game titles in its day, it was nothing compared to the impressive library of the NES. Not until I got a Wii and started downloading NES games on Virtual Console like crazy did I get back into retro gaming. Soon after I picked up an NES and a bundle of games cheap on eBay. I've been hooked ever since on the greatness of retro gaming. Join me as I relive the best video game console of all time--the Nintendo Entertainment System! Don't try to argue that one, it is a scientific fact. If you need proof it had its own damn cereal!
