The Nintendo Entertainment System is a video game console created by Nintendo. My brother and I pooled our paper route money to buy the Action Set back around 1988. I still have it, though it barely works due to the poor design. It has become one of my favorite video game platforms ever made.

Favorite Games

Of the games I've played on the system, I have particularly enjoyed:



  • Many great games were released on the platform.
  • The controllers were tough enough to survive a lot of abuse, though not the most comfortable to hold.


  • The lock-out chip and toaster design was a serious engineering flaw that caused most systems to stop working after a couple years.
  • Despite Nintendo's strong control over the platform, I don't think they did enough to limit terrible games for the system, which led to the market becoming over saturated with crappy games.
