The Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) has turned 30 as it was launched in North America on October 18th, 1985. Okay, I’m feeling very old right now but let’s get over that and talk about NES.

Long back, 30 years ago, NES was launched as a limited USA release with classic Nintendo games including all-time chart-topping NES video game Super Mario Bros, along with Excitebike, Duck Hunt, Pinball, Kung Fu and Golf.

For many of us, the most memorable game is Super Mario Bros. The game has sold over 40 million units and this game just made you an addict.
