The Retro Entertainment System NES Toploader contest was a huge success! Almost 110 people entered, but as you all know, there can only be one winner this time. (Come back next Saturday for a giveaway with four winners!).

Bonus: Your Favorite NES Games

NES Chart

Here is a super-dumbed down/probably not very accurate chart with the top games mentioned in the comments of the giveaway post. The Legend of Zelda was the big winner, with Super Mario Bros 1 and 3 close behind.

Thanks to you all for entering, and make sure to come back next week, because there’s going to be a huge giveaway celebrating the release of DK Publishing’s LEGO Star Wars Visual Dictionary, thanks to the folks at DK!

Giveaway: 8-Bit Retro NES Toploader

Posted 11 years ago by Games

To help celebrate Saturday Morning Central’s new design, I’m giving away one Retro Entertainment System NES Toploader. All you have to do is leave a comment, and say what your favorite NES game is, and I will pick one winner randomly! Make sure to use a valid email address, because that’s how I will contact you.

The Retro Entertainment System will play your old NES cartridges, because sometimes having your retro games in physical form is still cooler than using emulators.

The contest ends on October 1st at 5:00pm EST.

What are you waiting for?

Contest is closed.

Congratulations to Sand! You were selected randomly to win the NES Toploader!
