Description

Released in 1985, the Nintendo Entertainment System was the most popular of the third generation of video game consoles. The NES helped revitalize the industry of home gaming after the Video Game Crash of 1983. Nintendo marketed the system as a toy rather than a video game system, which helped gain the trust of the public, and lead to the system selling 34 million units in North America. Many icons of gaming got their start on the NES, including Super Mario Bros, the Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, and Final Fantasy.
