Nintendo doesn't just make games and consoles that change our video game lovin' lives- they make consoles that are built to last a lifetime, and it's not uncommon to hear about gamers who own NES consoles that still work.
And now with the release of the Switch they've changed the world of gaming once again, giving us the hybrid console of the future we didn't know we needed.
Along the way there were some misses like the Nintendo GameCube, later improved by the Panasonic Q, which was basically a GameCube with remote that can play DVDs.
The Q was only released in Japan and was a commercial flop, so Nintendo discontinued it two years after it was released.
There is still one thing I've always wondered about the NES and the original Japanese version the Famicom- why didn't the NES have cool controller holders like the Famicom?
