Remembering those days....

Classic picture. On this picture I am playing family computer with my cousin Alvin. We look we are having a good time. But before we hated each other. Just kidding.

The Nintendo Entertainment System (also called NES or Nintendo) is an 8-bit video game console that was released by Nintendo in North America during 1985, in Europe during 1986 and Australia in 1987. In most of Asia, including Japan (where it was first launched in 1983), China, Vietnam, Singapore, the Middle East and Hong Kong, it was released as the Family Computer (ファミリーコンピュータ Famirī Konpyūta?), commonly abbreviated as Famicom (ファミコン Famikon}, or FC for short?) In South Korea, it was known as the Hyundai Comboy (현대 컴보이) and was distributed by Hynix which then was known as Hyundai Electronics. In Russia, an unlicensed clone was manufactured called Dendy (Де́нди). A clone that was popular in Eastern Europe in the 1990s was the Super Design Ending-Man BS-500 AS, also known as Terminator. Similarly, in India, clones by the names of Little Master and Wiz Kid were popular.[6] In Poland, there was a clone produced called Pegasus, and in Argentina, there was a clone called Family Game. It was succeeded by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
