Nintendo's Tiny New NES Is a Blast From the Past

Just last year I got back into some of the vintage NES games from my childhood by setting up a Raspberry Pi as an emulator. Nintendo's NES Classic Edition seems to be aimed at people who are like me, except they don't want to bother with the hassle of setting up a mini computer to do the job of a gaming console. At $60, you get the console, one controller, and 30 pre-loaded games. When you consider the price of even one modern video game, it seems pretty hard to beat!
