Hats off to that guy. I totally respect his desire to keep the box as true to the original as possible.

And the front-end menu for the games...? Absolutely astonishing! Folks have totally reinvented the 8-bit NES. This project is definitely a fitting tribute to the indelible memories and deep scars left from the countless hours of gaming by folks my age (I'm 35 now, and I assume he's just a little bit younger).

Thanks for posting these, man.

The front end gui is nice. Very impressive box too.

I just could not bring myself to cut up a NES , unless the electronics inside was completely totalled I would have a go at repairing it. Would be nice to do with a spares or repair NES.

I remember getting my Nintendo for Christmas when I was a kid with a copy of Top Gun. I was shocked that my parents bought me that crappy game instead of Super Mario Brothers. I remember my mum saying the salesman recommended it which is why she purchased the game. I wasn't into planes & I was too young to watch Top Gun so I couldn't understand my parents logic. So anyway I opened the console box all upset that I didn't have Mario and low and behold their was a copy of Mario & Duck Hunt packaged with the console! It brings a smile to my face remembering that faithful day, thank you Carnivorous for posting this video, I forgot all about that memory!

Glad you guys enjoyed the videos. The music alone brought back so many good memories that I felt it was worthy of sharing. I always wanted make my own NES PC built but like hagar I couldn't bring myself to destroy a NES console. I did paint it to restore the color a long time ago though.

This makes me want to pull my old NES and play it again.

It's got a little crack on the cover lid, but it still works perfectly.

Does any body remember this guy? I remember playing it but I didn't care much for the odd shaped controller.

Although I started with the flip-front console that everyone knows, I eventually had the revamped NES and those odd "dogbone" controllers in the late '90s. At its height, my NES game collection numbered over 180 games. After finally being fed up with repacking, unpacking, and moving I had been doing, I later donated all my games, controllers, and other peripherals to Vimm at vimm dot net to sell and keep his emulation site running.

In my experience, the top-loader console was much more reliable than the flip-front version. I would seek one out if I was interested in building up a physical collection once again. That, and an NES Advantage.

That is the second coolest console mod I've seen. The first coolest was the portable PS2.

Had one. I actually liked the controllers better, but the way they're shaped, they should be bigger.
The top-loader emulated some of the game mappers, so it was pretty common to see 1px line gaps between repeated backgrounds, and most pirated games don't work correctly. Game genies had to be modded to fit into the new cartridge slot, too. I remember modding one, but can't remember if it actually worked afterward. On the flip-side, though the top-loader was far more reliable and didn't experience nearly as many dirty cart/dirty connector issues.

NES PC projects have been around since 2003-ish. MiniITX motherboards were introduced in 2001 and picoITX mobos were released in 2007. The first google result for an NES PC build *I* could easily find was from 2005, but there are earlier examples. Since then, anyone able to build an NES PC claims it's been the first. I'm even finding posts for "Worlds first NES PC" dated from 2011 and 2012. It's not an original idea, but it's neat none-the-less.
