A 30th anniversary tribute to the Nintendo Entertainment System, the game console that revolutionized the medium and helped create the games industry of today. This book explores the system's history, the movers and shakers who made it great, and of course all the amazing games. Includes a complete index of all licensed American releases, in-depth features, and write-ups on more than 200 different titles. Good Nintentions covers the full breadth of the NES's life, from the system's prehistory as the Nintendo Famicom to the modern-day resurgence of the system through games like Shovel Knight and NES-centric YouTube shows. Originally released as GameSpite Quarterly 5, Good Nintentions includes nearly twice as much content as the older volume, with dozens of new entries and extensive additions to existing material.
