NES Classic Edition

Buying an old NES and a bunch of games to try and relive your youth is admirable. It’s also a complete pain, storing and swapping out enormous cartridges and trying to figure out whether or not your TV even has a coax input. The NES Classic Edition gives you all the nostalgia with none of the hassle. Arriving in November, it’s a miniature of the real thing, packing 30 games into a palm-sized box — including all three Marios, both Zeldas, a couple Castlevanias, Metroid, Punch-Out (sadly minus Mike), and the best football game ever made, Tecmo Bowl. It connects to your TV via HDMI, and its controller can hook to a Wii Remote for use with Virtual Console games.
