NINTENDO NES CLASSIC EDITION
While Nintendo is primarily responsible for turning gaming into what we know it as today and generations of gamers still love their old games, they haven’t released a throwback plug-and-play console until this year. The Nintendo NES Classic Edition is designed to look like a miniature version of the original NES system, but boasts a few improvements. Though the cartridge slot is just for show and doesn’t open, the console comes with 30 preloaded games (like Metroid, the Legend of Zelda, and the first three Super Mario Brothers) and a controller that can also plug into a Wii or Wii U. Although it comes with an HDMI cable, the games run through a CRT filter to give them a more authentic old-school look.
