NES Classic Mini

Look. At. This. Little. Thing.

This right here is an instant buy for almost all the eighties kids. Nintendo might be taking a risk with their upcoming Switch console in 2017, but with the reissue of their classic console in pocket format they’ve struck gold.

It’s the Nintendo Entertainment System built for 2016

  • It’s very small and portable
  • It has an HDMI port
  • It runs off of USB power
  • Controllers connect through USB
  • Extra controllers for your friends cost nothing
  • It comes with 30(!) games built-in

Those 30 games that come with it?

Sure, you’ll miss the nostalgia of blowing dust off of the cartridges to get your games working, but this is like a little time capsule carrying all those days you spend trying to beat these near-impossible games.

If I’d have to name one downside it’s the short cables on the controller. I don’t want to sit 1 inch away from my TV Nintendo!
