My parents had the classic NES and they're the reason why I got started being a gamer. It was the only system they had for a while, so my brother and I both played hours of LoZ, Super Mario Bros 1 & 3, Duck Hunt, Shadowgate, Kirby's Dreamland, and Bubble Bobble. We also became one of the rare 90s kids who didn't wind up having the Super Nintendo OR the N64, so we missed out on a lot of other Nintendo classics there too. My parents went the Playstation, Sega Genesis (only because a relative gifted this to us), and GBC routes for us.I was one of the rare 80's kids who went the Sega route and missed-out on a lot of great gaming moments. That's not to say The Master System didn't have its share of classic games, but in those days of strict exclusivity deals, the Nintendo was the clear winner if you were a kid whose parents were only going to buy you one system.
