Nintendo Entertainment System (NES)

The Nintendo Entertainment System or NES was the first home video game console, as a prelude to many of the systems that were sold in the 1990’s. Nintendo started in the 1800’s as a card game supplier. It was not until 1974 that they moved into the arena of video games. They were able to get the rights to the Magnavox Odyssey in 1974, which was a home game console. Then in 1977 they started making the Color TV Game.

While there were earlier versions of home video console games it was the launch of the 1980 Nintendo that was a surprise to the world, which has also offered some of the best games of the time. Previous to the 80’s the games were simple like tennis. They also produced arcade games. Donkey Kong was not their creation, but it spurred a competition in which Nintendo had to do better. The 1980 Nintendo was a handheld console.

Then in 1983 NES was released in Japan. It took two years for the Nintendo Entertainment System to reach North America. When the console made it to North America families were able to play Super Mario Brothers. Super Mario Brothers is the best game to date for any game console in history. In 1989 the Game Boy was released, a much better version of the earlier handheld console.

The Nintendo game system gave way to Super Nintendo, Nintendo 64, and the GameCube. When the Nintendo was released it used an 8 bit CPU with cartridges rather than disks. The cartridges had to be pushed into the machine and the door closed before the game would go. With the Mario game there was also a potential to have two other games on the same cartridge.

The system allowed for a WII like idea. One game was targeting ducks. You would have to stand or sit in front of the television with the “gun” plugged in and wait for ducks to fly out of the bushes. If you aimed the gun accordingly the ducks would be shot. You would have to get a certain amount of ducks each time in order to move up in levels.

There are some Nintendo game systems still around today. Many of them have been kept by collectors wishing to remember the earlier days of games systems. Since Nintendo games when they first arrived on the machine did not allow you to go back in a game, many of them force you to continue until you beat a level or die. The challenge of the games still requires skill.

Emulators exist for the NES system. The emulator allows an individual to play the Nintendo games on their computer. By playing the games on the computer the individual is able to reminisce about the old days, while playing the game on a modern day system. Since there are very few Nintendo game consoles still around and in working order it does provide a nice medium. Nintendo Entertainment Systems also decided to re-release many of their games for newer consoles.
