Reaperman Posted March 11, 2014 Share Posted March 11, 2014 (edited) That's a bit misguided. Adjusted for inflation at launch the VCS cost nearly twice as much as the NES did at its launch. Sure the VCS became the goto for poor families when technology moved on, but the exact same thing happened with the NES. My perspective on the VCS wasn't necessarily looking at it through NES glasses. More from looking down on it through A8 glasses. I have no idea what a decent 800 setup ran at launch, but I assume quite a lot more than either. I think I'd like VCS more if it offered me a different experience than I'm used to. Something where I can go "that's neat, I've never played that before." In that way, maybe the 'NES generation' would have an easier time stepping down to it. I own a bunch of VCS titles, and I've seen it do some amazing things (qualifier:"for what it is"). At the same time 'amazing vcs titles' are really nothing compared to 'the mediocre a8 ports' of the same games and it seems like I'm just punishing myself by playing the game on VCS.
