Happy Birthday, old friend. Nintendo turns 125 today


Today is Nintendo’s 125th birthday. Time to celebrate.

For many, we know the story of how a small Japanese hanafuda card company rose to prominence during the 1970s and 80s to become the gaming giant it is today. Fans and writers alike have seen the ups and downs the company has gone through, yet its characters and products still somehow resonate with the masses. It surely has been a wild ride that the company has dealt with for decades.

For all the memories that Nintendo has given us, we at Infendo would like to know what you believe is the company’s greatest achievement in its 125 year history? Share your favorite with us in the comments below. Until then, we raise a glass to Nintendo for 125 years of life and for 125 more.

Harrison Milfeld is a writer, editor, and freelance journalist from Missouri. Ever since he could walk, Harrison has been an avid fan of the world of Nintendo. For years, he has purchased every one of the company's subsequent products (yes, including the Virtual Boy and eReader). It wasn't until he was a young teen when he bought a PS2 that he began to embrace cross-console relations, a decision he doesn't regret. When he's not gaming, Harrison is looking to break into the magazine journalism industry and realize his dream of becoming a features reporter.
