Happy Fathers Day to all the fortunate father gamers who played this system back in the day with their ol'man!

Just think, if the "father" of video games of Nintendo never kicked back the hobby into what it is today, what would the game landscape be?

The gaming landscape would be everyone would be using Commodore computers and they would still be around.

That is where gaming went when the gaming crash of 83 happened, people went to home computers like the Commodore 64.

Simple. Nintendo didn't save gaming. THEY NEVER DID NOR EVER WILL.

That is a lie that needs to stop right now.

Well, everyone I knew as a kid had an NES. I never even knew the Commodore 64 existed until I was older, and still haven't actually seen one in person.

That is because the NES came out and took over in North America.
Still the C64 was popular here just not as much as it was in Europe.

But like I said, if the NES never came out, people would be gaming on the C64, the Amiga, Atari computer lines. Everyone had moved to computers for a while, then moved back to consoles with the NES.

Those are good reminders for every single one of us that we as individuals can make a difference. No matter how big or small.

While it may be true of what you said of the commodore computer being everybody's second go to after the crash. There is no denying the "IMPACT" the company of Nintendo had on the industry. So in the hearts of many (as well as myself) Nintendo reigns supreme.

And the true glory of this statement, is one that is of my own on my own free will... I will never force others to think the way I do. I am myself and I like it that way.

woodgrain

There's a disturbing lack of wood grain in modern gaming.
I should get some wood grain decals and pimp my NES Classic
