    There was no mention about Popeye. Originally when Shigeru Miyamoto was told to design a game that would appeal to America, he researched American interests and decided to make a Popeye arcade game. But Nintendo couldn't get the rights to use the popeye character on time so Bluto was changed into Donkey Kong, and Popeye was changed into jumpman. Jumpmans name was later changed to Mario.

  • Good video, man! Really liking the music choices here. Anybody that uses Mouryou Senki Madara OST in their videos has my respect.

    I miss the badass Nintendo, now they sell a glorified tablet and can’t decide if it wants to be a home system or a portable system.

    Thanks for sharing this fascinating history about the NES. I have one for my very own (NES version UK) along with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (used to be known in the UK as Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles) and TMNT II: The Arcade Game (used to be known in the UK as TMHT II: The Arcade Game).

    I'm not lying when I say this is the best video I've ever seen on YouTube. I just watched it three times in a row. You deserve a lot more recognition.

  • Very cool video! Like so good! Amazing job man! This was informative and invoked nostalgia which is what I thrive on.

  • Does anybody know what game is being featured at 24:52 of the video? It kind of looks like a Predator kind of character, but the NES game Predator used Arnold as the character that is used to play the game with, so I am wondering what game this might be. Anybody know???

    Nintendo rules as innovator, my first console was the NES but damn those cartridges were expensive. I had two original games, all in all Super Mario Bros which was bundled with the console and Bionic Commando

  • Why Didn't Nintendo get involved with ZTE or Samsung 1986 becase those we experianced trading company who could have helped with distribution and manufacturing.

  • One question? What the he*#! were the american developers doing? Did they all really go bankrupt aside from Aklaim or Activision? Watching this its evident that not only did Japan enter the video game industry, they were the video game industry after the American crash. It's sad there weren't any American equivalents to the brilliance of Capcom, Kanomi, Nintendo's departments, Enix, Squaresoft…on and on and on and on. Was it all about home computers for American developers?

    Brilliant Video, very high quality and not the usual tit bits of information; some really juicy snipets of stuff i havent heard before on other gaming channels

  • This is one of the very best Nintendo history video's I've watched, not only on YouTube but the whole of the internet period.

    Great work keep it up. I would love some more of these Chronicles of gaming video's on other companies and consoles.

    Hi. There should be a history how the bad box artwork of Megaman came to be:-) God bless, Merry Christmas, happy new year. Matthew 16:18

  • Finally someone mentioned the fact that the NES was succesful in France and Scandinavia. So many other YouTubers ignore that fact and say NES totally failed in Europe. As someone who grew up during that time in Sweden, it's a bit frustrating how people seem to forget other countries exist in Europe. Here, SEGA did alright with Master System, although far from a massive hit, while NES on the other hand was pretty huge over here!

  • Great content, but a bad documentary. The narrator and editing seems to be in cocaine. There are no breaks or breaths.

  • Sony playstation 2 kicked Nintendos cube ass, then Nintendo gets a win with the Wii
    only to fail with U as casual video entertainment moves to smartphones, now Nintendo is still pig headed,
    in trying to control the video game market. – good video about Nintendo game history
