NES single-handedly brought in the video game revolution and paved the way for home consoles. Why should you get a NES for your dorm room? Because there's so many fun games to play, and only way to really enjoy them is to play them like its 1988 again! The NES connects with a co-axial cable but we included a link to get the cord that supports HDMI connections, so you can connect it to your HDtv. .. although we still suggest an old tv set to experience scan-lines and audio the way it was meant to be. The 8-bit NES System takes you back to a simpler time. A time when graphics weren't overwhelming and violence wasn't as prevalent in video games. (Yes, of course there was some, but not to the extent of, say, Grand Theft Auto and it's ilk.) The games are easy to comprehend and play. They're also easy and cheap to find at thrift stores. All you have to do is clean them up and pop them in. Many web sites offer PDF downloads of the manuals/instructions as well so don't worry that you don't get the game mint in the box. The system and games are easy to maintain. Anyone with a phillips head screwdriver and a q-tip with a dab of rubbing alcohol can keep games and system clean and blink-free. New 72 pins can be easily installed for under 10 bucks - then your old system will play forever. I particularly like the Role Playing Games and the ability to save games for future play. Super Mario Bros. 3 is by far the best (and one of the toughest) video game ever created. Enjoy it! Relive your youth or show your kids what video games were like "back in the day."
