What if NES Games Were Developed with Today’s Industry Standards

Gaming has changed a lot since the NES days. And I’m not just talking about the graphics, sound or even 3D environments. I’m referring to how the industry as a whole reshaped.

Some games still have codes. One of the most recent I can think of is BioShock Infinite.

Really though the code in Bioshock Infinite is more of a nostalgic throwback than anything else (1999 Mode).

@ DeadlllRed

Does that really matter? Penguinhunter said they missed codes and noted some games (which do totally exist) still have them and the most recent was BioShock Infinite, which you yourself admit has a code. So I really fail to see your point.. Sure they can't all be like Shank 2 (unlocks a special character in the hoard mode), but still a billion times better than...

"1999 Mode Early Unlock - $.99
Play the hardest mode in BioShock Infinite right off the bat. For a limited time get it for $.99, which is half off the normal sale price."

You would have had to pay $5.99 for the konami code as in game dlc.

Haha I got a good laugh from the pictures. Especially Neal Anderson from the bears on Tecmo Super Bowl. That dude always got hurt.
