Known as the Third Generation of video gaming, many consoles have been released since Nintendo discontinued the NES in the mid nineties: the Super Nintendo (SNES), Nintendo 64, the Gamecube, and the Wii.

Nintendo's current console is the Wii U. And, with the Nintendo 64 now considered nostalgic, the gaming company's original system has reached the status of video game antiquity.

The NES was released in the United Kingdom in 1986, Maisie Williams--known for her role as Arya Stark in Game of Thrones--was born in 1997.
