Just read two articles on the fact that it's been 30 years since the Nintendo Entertainment System came out. What has made the NES such an important console, well everyone can agree it has been the fact that they have had unique game titles and the console was so great to play at home. Those game titles have played a large role in creating Nintendo. Starting off with the "Mario" game series and the "Legend of Zelda." Both series continue to be a strong selling point for Nintendo across all there consoles.
