      Smuts is right my friend said when he plays smash he will be at 1 frame for 5 minutes and when it moves again the round is already done I feel bad for him☹️

            NES online with friends is broken af. $60 for these is dumb. Mario maker 2 online is garbo. But above all that... I disliked this cause this dude is hella cringy😂😂

                          How about just make a service that won't shut down and make the controllers for that? OR, remake systems but with all the games, and make the systems cost slightly more

                              some guy named damian A) the NSO games are from the 80s, B) the life expectancy is 80, and by the time I’m that old it’ll be far older than 100; I have a long life ahead of me, child, C) you’ll be lucky to make it to my age kid. Lastly I said I’m in my 30s not that I’m 30. Grand kids? Lol

                              @Cali Killa Klown You're really old being 30, wow. You have the funeral planned out soon? What of your grandkids? They like these new-fangled Nintendo's?
                              I said decade-old because it umbrellas all the other games that aren't exactly three decades old. There's more than just Super Mario Bros.

                                                    Ever wonder if people actually bought the switch to play NES games?

                                                          That is a stupid price for NES controllers. It should be half that price for both controllers.

Does anybody actually struggle to play Super Mario Bros. or River City Ransom on a controller with more than four face buttons? (I realize this is more of a fashion statement than anything, but...)

                                                                                I'd just like to see something with good-quality sticks for under $100 CAD. Or a wireless 64-style controller with a good-quality stick and some 64 games on offer(I'd be happy with just Starfox 64 and F-Zero X, honestly - anything else would just be icing on the cake). I'd even pay $10-20 like a chump to own F-Zero X on a new VC when I already own it on cart, because somebody swiped my N64 and controllers years back and I don't want to go pay hundreds for a used 64 that might not work and some old wired controllers with worn-out sticks(the sticks on the $30 knockoffs sold in local stores might get a few months before they start to go loose - I guess you could put an aftermarket stick in but I'm no good with modding controllers).

You need to bring out a Pro Retro controller which isn't as bulky as the normal pro controller. More like a reimagined SNES-controller with analogue stick for N64 and GC. Or maybe no analogue sticks at all....
