Last week, TIME declared the Nintendo Switch one of the 25 best inventions of 2017.
Today the magazine has declared the SNES Classic Edition the sixth best gadget released this year, and the Nintendo Switch the best gadget of the year. See what they have to say for the SNES Classic Edition below.
Nintendo’s iconic grey-and-purple Super Nintendo gaming machine made a huge comeback in 2017. The SNES Classic comes loaded with 21 retro titles, including Super Mario World, The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country, and a previously unreleased Star Fox game. Everything from the games themselves to the way the controllers feel in your hands are exactly as you would remember from the 1990s. Catering to players’ nostalgia has seemingly paid off: the SNES Classic was the second best-selling video game console during the month of October, according to research firm NPD, and it’s been nearly impossible to find since its September launch.
