25th Anniversary of the Nintendo Entertainment System

Today, October 18, 2010, is the 25th anniversary to the video game console that changed the world, the Nintendo Entertainment System. This is the console that brought the United States out of the Video Game Crash of 1983 and into the next era of video games.

Happy Birthday NES!

To celebrate this day – everyone should hook up their NES and play their favorite game. Be it Zelda, Super Mario Bros, Duck Hunt, Tetris, or something else.
