Nintendo NES

The Nintendo Entertainment System, more widely known as the NES (or even simply as "the Gray Box"), was Nintendo's first foray into the (previously crashed) North American video game scene. This 8-bit console solidified Nintendo's name in American households for decades to come and is considered by many to be the greatest video game console of all time — it not only affected the games we play, but also the way they're played and made throughout the industry.
