The NES - known as the Famicom in Japan - is largely attributed with the survival of the gaming industry after the crash in 1983. In 1983, the gaming market had more or less crashed due to a lack of quality games (often due to prolific plagiary and infringements), a lack of cooperation and third-party development, and the general mindset of video gaming being a "fad". The NES saved the gaming market from these by not only permitting and encouraging third-party development, but also making it much more difficult for unlicensed developers - such as Sachen - to create their often-poor games for the console.
