We've always been huge Nintendo fans, and still play NES games today. Here's some Nintendo love for you, in the form of facts and figures from MBAOnline.com:

What stands out to me is something I already knew, that Nintendo started in 1889 making playing cards, something very family oriented. In comparison Sega, which stood for Service Games (SEvice GAmes), started in 1940 making coin-operated games, something very hardcore. You can still see the roots in these two companies today. Nintendo making family oriented products and Sega making hardcore arcade games. I love them BOTH.
