History of the rivalry between Nintendo and Sega: A Photo Essay

Those were the days when companies took friendly jabs which were hilarious results for both sides of gaming (also in the days of Playstation.) Now-a-days if Sony made a commercial saying "You got 99 Problems and it's Xbox One", the internet would tear itself a new &?!hole from the flames.

I miss the days when we had different choices in systems yet still invited friends over to have a ball in what the other was lacking. Don't let me get started on arcades......

Sega presented the arcade titles that people specifically went to the arcade to play in turn bringing them to the home consoles.
