Nintendo's first home console and the best selling games machine of it's time, the NES brought the US games industry back from the brink following the 1983 video games crash. The NES didn't sell so well in Europe where the Sega Master System ruled a market made small by the popularity of gaming on home computers. This is the machine that took Donkey Kong and Mario out of the arcades and into homes across the world where they have resided ever since.
RockNES - the best emulator for the NES.
