The Nintendo Entertainment System
, often called the NES
for short, made its premiere in the video game world in 1985. Modelled after the Japanese Famicom, the NES offered 8-bit graphics and several fun accessories, such as R.O.B. the Robot, the Nintendo Power Glove, and the more common Nintendo Zapper and Nintendo Power Pad.
Over the past 25 years, massive amounts of dust have gathered in these classic systems, as well as in the NES games. Due to this, many gamers are familiar with a 'blinking effect', but other people dispose of their Nintendo Entertainment System and games, mistakenly assuming that they are broken. Due to this misunderstanding, the prices of the original NES systems have gotten fairly high, leading several companies to start making their own generic video game systems, capable of playing NES games.
The Super Nintendo Entertainment System
, also known as the SNES
, came out in 1991, only a year after its Japanese version, the Super Famicom, or SFC. The SNES video game system, sporting 16-bit graphics, was widely known for its dazzling games. Several games were released for the Super Nintendo even after its predecessor, the Nintendo 64, was released.. In fact, to this day, many classic gamers consider the SuperNES to be the best of the console systems, although the Sega Genesis should be noted as being of fairly similar quality.
19 years later, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System's games are still well loved by many players, especially fans of classic RPGs. From the classic Super Mario World to Lufia & the Fortress of Doom, the SNES had classic treasures for everyone.
Released in 1996, the Nintendo 64
video game system, or N64
for short, was named after its 64-bit processor. Originally released with 4 megabytes of RAM, the N64 had an optional Expansion Pak, which increased its RAM memory to 8 megabytes. The Nintendo 64's standard controller was also vastly more advanced than the previous controllers, offering gamemakers a joystick and trigger-style 'Z' button in addition to the standard directional pad.
Due to great leaps in 3D game processing, the N64 is remembered by many people as being a system full of 3D games, which is, for the most part, true. Many popular 3D games were available on the Nintendo 64, ranging from adventurish games like Super Mario 64 to first person shooters like Perfect Dark. Eventually this system declined when the Nintendo GameCube was released, and the N64 became the last Nintendo cartridge-based system...
The Sega Genesis
, also known as the Sega Mega Drive
, was released in 1989, and quickly grew to become Sega's best-selling console system. Boasting 16-bit graphics, the Sega Genesis had three different primary models of it released, two of which used their own special RF adapters, which can be difficult to find in modern times. Several add-ons to the video game system itself were also released, including the Sega CD and the Sega 32X adapter. All of these things were able to connect together to form one large system.
Sega Genesis games were extremely popular, so vast numbers of the game cartridges were made. As a result, in modern times, prices on these games are often quite low, especially with sports games... The Sega Genesis has numerous sports games for it that, in modern times, are all worth only $1, due to the sheer number of them that were originally made.
