Youtube Video Description:

In a 30th-birthday-celebration kind of mood? Instead of a cake, celebrate with a copy of Super NES Works Vol. I! Hardcover Edition: Collector's Edition: It has been three decades since Nintendo launched its first next-generation console in the U.S.: The Super Nintendo Entertainment System. On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, Super NES Works returns for a limited-time engagement to wrap up this look at the system's launch window by looking at the system itself. What did the Super NES represent to fans, parents, developers, and Nintendo itself when it arrived in the midst of a burgeoning games market whose revival had been precipitated by the Super NES's own predecessor and opened the door to some ferocious competition? Also, this episode I finally got my VHS playback looking coherent rather than like a pile of butt.
