November 16, 2012, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Before the start of the 3D gaming era, the video game industry was dominated by Nintendo with their 8 bit and 16 bit consoles.  Sega also had a stake and served as a major competitor against Nintendo.

By the third generation (8 bit) and the fourth generation (16 bit), the video game industry began flourishing among even the common people and game titles like Mario, Megaman, Metroid, Contra, The Legend of Zelda, and Sonic came to be more familiar.

Since then, the game industry had gone through various metamorphoses, and now, it has reached a point where it is difficult to call it simply a game. It holds the widest entertainment sphere and people have start considering it as an art form.

But, the question whether videogames are good or bad is still raging. The health issues and social implications are raised against the industry. Like the detractors, the video game cherishers raise their opinions and point out the artistic values of video games and see it as an entertainment platform just like films but with more intriguing elements.

Back in the retro days, some parents considered the videogame console a bad thing.

This interesting video has now come unto us on YouTube saying that 16 bit Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) is just a machine with an obvious hardware update solely intended for taking advantage of children’s curiosity and thus milking the market.

SNES was hugely successful with the introduction of its advanced 2D graphics and it did face lift the graphic benchmarks during that time. SNES games are still available in the market and some retro game sites have playable web versions on the various SNES titles.
