Nintendo Entertainment System


What in the world?! How is this not #1, after you do some history, you'll regret placing the NES at number 6, Nintendo (and probably Sega) revitalized the gaming market after the game crash of 1983-84, and the games that were released on the NES were amazing, you'll find big ass classics released for the console. Considering that the NES revived the game market, the new consoles today and the past were all thanks to Nintendo. - ClassicGaminer

Graphics don't matter people. Graphics are not what makes a game good, it's how fun it is! The Atari jaguar thought graphics were key, and not playability. That resulted in a poorly made console. The nes had terrible graphics, and it's games are all time classics! Graphics don't matter kids.

The NES Is my favourite console of all time, and this is coming from a kid! So much fun, much more challenging and it had great games! Zelda, Mario, Metroid, Mega Man, Castlevania, Bubble Bobble, Little Nemo, the list goes on and on! This should at least be in the top 3! All you need is an NES and games to have endless fun.

Even though I didn't grow up with the NES, it saved the gaming market and provide us with Mario, Megaman, Zelda, Bomberman, Adventure Island, StarTropics, Metroid, Duck Hunt, Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior/Quest, and many more. Bless that little box.

Dang how is this at number nine? This was one of the first consoles ever and has some of the best games ever and greatest series ever like Super Mario Bros. The Legend of Zelda, Mega Man, and more. There are a lot of good new games yes but the old NES games are great!

Metroid, Kirby, Castlevania, Prince of Persia, Metal Gear, Mega Man Street Fighter, Legend of Zelda, Super Mario Brothers, Yoshi, Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior to name a few, all got there start on the NES. Really took the home videogame market to the level we all enjoy now.

I had to vote for this one because it was THE console that saved the entire video game industry from the crash of '83. It also introduced Mario, Zelda, and many other iconic franchises.

Without question, the NES is the system that singlehandedly saved and revived the home video game consoles market. Every system that has followed since owes its existence to the success of the NES. - MovieSounds

Only reason NES is not top is because my generation was the last to play it, and all these new gen immature dim wits do even have a clue what a Nintendo is. So sad.

How is this not number one! I am no Nintendo fanboy. The gamecube was awful! The WII you is one of the worst ideas ever. but this console changed the game! VOTE NES!

Nintendo Entertainment System revolutionized gaming consoles. This will be the Mother of all mothers, not Atari or any old piece of junk predecessor.

The console which started gaming as an art, a life style and an addiction... Simply the best one ever -

This was the console that revived the American video game crash of 1983. If it wasn't for the NES, video games would've been long forgotten.

This one saved the industry from the crash of 1985. I don't see why it's not in the #1 spot. It also invented the D-pad and save data by the way.

How is this not number 1?!? All those new consoles suck! The wii is good because IT PLAYS NES GAMES vote on the nes guys it's the best! - Agilitydustman

It's life stye. Let we forget: Super Mario bros. Tank, Kid icarus, Rock man, Circus, CONTRA etc etc...

The best variety of games... A time when creativity was used in making games.

YES YES YES! Can't believe the 360 and ps3 are 2 and 1! Whoever voted those up has a bad taste. PS3 is buggy and the Xbox 360 is pretty good but not the second best! This has no hulu downloads or video players or that crap. Just pure gaming. Super Mario bros 3, battle toads, legend of Zelda, contra, mega man, METROID, castlevania! Holy Chinese chicken those are some sweet games! Also, simple controls are always better!

The best console ever to hit the market it made the video game industry what it is today

I don't have an nes but I'm getting one from my aunt! Then when I get home, I'll be the cool kid!

The legend that is the NES is truly a majestic console with its fantastic and challenging collection of games. The console itself is nice looking and the controller is a real beauty. The NES produced great games for each genre and nearly all games for the 8-bit console have incredible soundtracks. A sturdy and essential masterpiece.
ALL HAIL THE NES! - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

The system that killed the Atari 7800.

One of THE best gaming consoles of all time.

Plus, it saved the video game industry.

I would probably rank this list based on overall impact :/ - World10s

Super Mario Bros. 3, The Legend Of Zelda, Donkey Kong, Super Mario Bros. Contra - VideoGamefan5
