Nintendo are absolutely unbeatable for cartoon-style games that you just pick up, play for a while and then abandon - any of the Mario series, Pokemon, etc.

That said... I much prefer Playstation because that's got more serious games that I can play for hundreds of hours without getting bored - the Final Fantasy series, the Tony Hawk's skateboarding series, etc.

Yeah, but I'm not interested in stuff like that, and to be honest I think Nintendo are just so much better at less serious stuff.

When I say 'cartoony', I mean stuff like Mario, Zelda, Pokemon, Kirby, Pikmin, that kinda thing. The fun stuff that you don't have to think too hard about.

Bear in mind that Super Mario 64 is my favourite game of all time and you'll get an idea of what I like from Nintendo. :wink:

LMAO!

I love the SNES!

I understand what thelazyboy is saying because my brother thinks the same. They basically think Nintendo is more for kids.

The best type of game you can ever play, imo

It's a bit pointless IMO, but if people are still buying these, they may as well squeeze as much of it as they can get.

I'm gonna get that 2DS XL I think. I've always wanted a 3DS but never got round to buying one. But since I bought the Switch i'm becoming Nintendo Obsessed again. Plus the 3DS has a great back catalogue with quite a few games I want.

Black and Blue or White and Orange?

True, I suppose the advantage of coming in late to any generation is that you have a huge amount of games to try out and at half the price.

Between the on-going success of the 3DS, Pokemon Sun & Moon, Pokemon Go, Mario Run and the Switch, they are having a pretty good 9 months.

Now you're playing with super power! Nintendo announces Super NES Classic Edition
The Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo’s follow-up console to the legendary Nintendo Entertainment System, launched in 1991 and introduced what many consider some of the greatest video games of all time – classics such as Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Super Mario Kart, Super Metroid and F-ZERO.

On Sept. 29, this beloved console is coming back to stores in the form of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition. The mini system, which contains 21 pre-installed classic games and can easily be plugged into any high-definition TV using the included HDMI cable, will be available at a suggested retail price of $79.99. And for the first time, players who pick up the system can enjoy the intergalactic adventure Star Fox 2, the sequel to the original Star Fox game that was created during the Super NES era but never released … anywhere!

“While many people from around the world consider the Super NES to be one of the greatest video game systems ever made, many of our younger fans never had a chance to play it,” said Doug Bowser, Nintendo of America’s Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “With the Super NES Classic Edition, new fans will be introduced to some of the best Nintendo games of all time, while longtime fans can relive some of their favorite retro classics with family and friends.”

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition has the same look and feel of the original system – only smaller – and comes pre-loaded with 21 incredible games:

Contra III: The Alien Wars™
Donkey Kong Country™
EarthBound™
Final Fantasy III
F-ZERO™
Kirby™ Super Star
Kirby’s Dream Course™
The Legend of Zelda™: A Link to the Past™
Mega Man® X
Secret of Mana
Star Fox™
Star Fox™ 2
Street Fighter® II Turbo: Hyper Fighting
Super Castlevania IV™
Super Ghouls ’n Ghosts®
Super Mario Kart™
Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars™
Super Mario World™
Super Metroid™
Super Punch-Out!! ™
Yoshi’s Island™
All of these games would be considered classics by anyone’s standards, and some of them in particular – Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy III, EarthBound and Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars – are massive role-playing games that can take dozens of hours to complete. Even for super fans who have played all of these games multiple times, the inclusion of the never-before-released Star Fox 2 game will offer them something entirely new to enjoy – if they can unlock it by proving their skills in the original Star Fox game. (Well, they only have to complete the first level – we didn’t want to make it too hard!)

Included with the Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition are one HDMI cable, one USB charging cable with AC adapter and two wired Super NES Classic Controllers, perfect for playing multiplayer games. Having two controllers will make it easy for two players to dive into multiplayer action right away. Some of the games with multiplayer options include Street Fighter II Turbo: Hyper Fighting, Super Mario Kart, Contra III: The Alien Wars and Secret of Mana.

The Super Nintendo Entertainment System: Super NES Classic Edition launches on Sept. 29 at a suggested retail price of $79.99.
