Product Description

Unparalleled, SMB blew open the doors to the videogaming world. With rich palettes of colour, eight four level worlds, spot-on play control, and expert level design, SMB was a much longer game than most of Atari's products and was a game unlike any other at that time. SMB also had the benefit of being very simple to grasp; run, jump, and fire. It was also the first side-sroller as we know it, though Atari's PITFALL set up the concept. Also, it's one of the best. Without SMB, NES wouldn't have been nearly as big a hit in the beginning. In the end, Nintendo came at the industry's key moment. With a powerful new console (for that time) and a very well-designed game, Nintendo resurrected video gaming. With its phenomenal success of the NES and SMB, the video game industry once again took off, becoming one of the world's most significant economical contributors.

Verified Purchase
I ordered this product from this guy because he had a good rating. boy was i wrong. clicking on the product link, it Clearly states that the console comes with:
Mario 2 Nintendo Game Included!
2 RF Switches Included!
2 Controllers Included!
and his description states that it is in "Collectable Condition"

WRONG!!! what came to me was a Yellow discolored, dirty, dusty, sticky, and Smelly NES console! it came in a box with two pieces of Styrofoam that where not big enough to cushion the console. to top it off, there was Only a console! NO CONTROLERS, NO POWER CORDS, and NO GAME as advertized.

I contacted this seller (8trackdude) and he told me that i read the description wrong and that if i were to file a claim, i would surely lose.
after contacting this seller (8trackdude) numerous times, he finally gave in and approved my return request.


He provided me with a false return slip! the package came back to me with a sticker that read,"Empty Lot, No Such Person" i paid for that shipping too! i contacted him again and he gave me another address, probably bogus too.

I contacted Amazon and they took care of everything.

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Arguably the single most important console in video game history, Nintendo Entertainment System (hereafter referred to as the NES), along with SUPER MARIO BROTHERS, singlehandedly resurrected the video game industry after the historic crash of 1983-1984. Rather than reviewing the system itself, which has been done many times, I think many people may find the history how of this revolutionary console came to the videogame industry's rescue very interesting; I know I do. I draw much of this information from various websites, one very good one in particular; unfortunately, I can't really plug them due to Amazon's policies. Email me if you want the websites.

By 1983, the gaming industry, in existence for a mere twelve years, had risen to an astonishing 3.2 billion dollar industry. Atari spearheaded the industry, which introduced its first console in 1977 (Atari Video Computer System), and since had grown to hold two thirds of the entire market. However, in 1984 all this would end with a thunderous crash. This concise overview will show you the history of the home consol crash and how the NES came to the rescue.

In 1976, Warner Communications bought Atari for $28 million from the company's founder, Nolan Bushnell. Over the next two years, Atari, suffering major production problems and Bushnell's bizarre management, lost Warner millions. Bushnell and Warner's CEO fought, and in 1978 Bushnell was forced to leave. Warner totally revamped the working style, and in 1979-1980, produced twelve new titles. However, Atari was still dragging down Warner's stock. Struggling to gain the market share, Atari made the smartest move they possible could have; in 1980, they began licensing arcade games, the first being SPACE INVADERS.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mankind's Greatest Triumph September 6, 2005
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Seriously now. Are any of us worthy of reviewing this thing?

The Nintendo Entertainment System may have brought more hours of joy to more people than any other man-made invention in the history of the world. Folks, this is one of the few things ever invented that just never gets boring. You beat one game, get sick of it, and you have 30,000 other games to try, 40% of which are good, 30% of which are unbelievable. Some of my favorite titles are Dragon Warrior, the Legend of Zelda series, Castlevania, Mike Tyson's Punchout, the Super Mario Brothers series, etc. But you know the titles. You know them as well as I do.

How fun is playing Nintendo? Playing Nintendo is possibly the most fun you can have without there being ten beautiful naked women in the room with you, calling your name and gesturing suggestively. Actually, cut that. Playing Nintendo is so much fun that, even if the naked chicks were in the room with you, you might not notice that they were there because you would be so immersed in the game. You think I am joking? I am not. Playing Nintendo is so much fun that it is almost dangerous--after hitting the power switch it is easy to get so caught up in a game that you ignore smoke alarms, telephone calls, knocks at the door, your term papers, your roommates calling for help, your wife, sketchy-looking people prowling around outside, etc.

I always wondered why our government did not put the addictive properties of Nintendo to use for constructive purposes. For example, I think that the Taliban would stop hating us if we would just drop 800 Nintendo systems on their villages. After stomping on a few Little Goombas, they would inevitably undergo a transformation and our different cultures could surely then live together in harmony.

A Kid's Review
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I got this system when I was 5 years old at a yard sale for $10 along with the gun zapper thingy and about 15 games.By far my favorites were Super Mario,Super Mario 3,duckhunt and others.The controller isn't very comfortable though being a plastic rectangle(Nintendo corrected this for the SNES)but the controlls are very simple,just a directional pad,start,select,and A,B buttons.Great system.
