nes was a system that took everything and put it back to place, without the original nintendo you wouldn't have your "PS2's" and "Xbox's". At one point all of nintendos systems were being taken back because of every single problem you had to face due to such a fucken piece of shit at least segas system didn't have catridge defiency but this square piece of ingenious technology couldn't last a day without constant blowing and the constant clicking of the on and off button.
