The Famicom's Creator Reflects On 30 Years Of 8-Bit Bliss

Polygon: ''The Nintendo Entertainment System was released in 1985, but its Japanese counterpart, the Nintendo Family Computer, or Famicom for short, came out July 15, 1983, meaning it'll turn 30 soon. Masayuki Uemura, head of the small hardware staff that created the machine, still can't quite believe it.'' (Famicom, Retro)

Seems so long ago, lol.

Still own the NES and Zelda was my favorite game of all time on that system.


Here's a couple pictures my gf took of me playing Zelda in 1987. She would get so mad at me because I would never stop playing. So she would try and bug me by taking pictures. I have the controller in my hand in both pictures. Playing on a wood box cased 27" RCA tv.



Respect for the NES lives on today!
