Happy Birthday! The NES is 30 years old today

Well, on its American birth certificate at least. Yep, to the groans of middle-aged gamers everywhere, it's been three decades since Nintendo's home console first landed: 18th October 1985. Arguably the advent of console gaming, the Nintendo Entertainment System arrived with 17 games, including Mario Bros., and other not-so-much memorable titles like Hogan's Alley (not the wrestler) and Stack Up -- all in often ridiculous box art we've already covered in detail.
