not sure why the obsession with making consoles look like the NES. is it just me or is the NES not particularly good looking?
i agree, the NES didn't look very good in its design. i think the reasons some people want these are partly a nostalgia thing, and partly an "i feel special because i have something rare" thing. ....or maybe they really do think it's visually appealing, who knows. lol.
If you weren't a gamer in the 80's, then you just can't understand.
I wasn't a gamer in the 80s, but I do understand. I have 3 NES systems and over 300 NES cartridges I collected over the years. BTW I just love NES's design. It's simple yet effective for its time.
my gaming history only goes as far back as the sega genesis which is loved
This romanticizing of NES is utterly stupid and idiotic. I was a gamer even during the 70's and I believe this dressing-up your now current-gen is shamefully cheap and pretentious. Move on dammit.
