Happy Birthday, NES. 25 years old, eh? Wow. A lot’s changed in over your lifetime. You, along with a bit of help from Mario, Link, Kid Icarus, brought gaming to living rooms worldwide. Many of us grew up with you as our babysitter. I can recall countless sleepless nights trying to make my way up the tower in Kung Fu and later through the war-torn jungle in Guerrilla Wars. What memories. Anyway, after the jump is a collection of the various TV commercials and a clip from the movie that defined the era, which clearly demonstrates your pure awesomeness. We love you, NES. Happy birthday.
