Vampin' Gamer with Tim Webb: Play the system that started it all


December 07, 2016

On November 11 the NES Classic Edition was released for gamers to relive their past gaming life.  The console comes with 30 built-in games with a high defintion output.  Also featured to the console is a replica controller.
 
The NES Classic comes with one NES Classic Controller, an HDMI cable and an AC adapter.  Extra classic controllers cost $9.99 each.  Nintendo has also said that the Classic Controller or Classic Controller Pro for the Wii and Wii U will also work with the mini NES. The NES Classic Edition itself retails for $59.99 however both console and controller are sold out everywhere.
 
The NES Classic includes a great selection of NES original games that have been perfectly ported.  The games give the user the ability to save progress at any time so that they can leave at the drop of a dime and return to the video game action whenever they choose.  Also, the small price of $59.99 isn’t so bad for 30 AAA NES titles to choose from.
 
Although the nostalgia of playing these NES games is great, the NES Classic does suffer from a few negatives.  First of all, the controllers are very impractical with their short cables, which are a huge design flaw for most gamers who play far away from their televisions and entertainment systems in a world where we are used to wireless everything.  Also, Nintendo dropped the ball in not allowing the console to have internet capabilities or any ability to add extra game titles to the included 30 built-in games.  Finally, the actual inventory amount of consoles and controllers was subpar and many gamers were left without grabbing one.
 
Despite the few negatives, NES Classic has still delivered an overload of nostalgia in a big way.  Revisiting these old titles on HD screens of today is refreshing and very entertaining.  The console is a welcomed retro tech gift for gaming fans and does not disappoint in delivering classic Nintendo titles on today’s screens.
