The Family Computer, or Famicom for short, is a gaming system released in Japan by Nintendo in July 1983. It was released in other countries as the Nintendo Entertainment System. The Family Computer has been subject to countless bootleg game cartridges, consoles, and various other hardware since the 1990s. It was succeeded by the Super Famicom.

Masahiro Sakurai has sung the Famicom's praises, considering it a "legendary game console".[1] He thanks the Family BASIC, a Famicom peripheral released in 1984 allowing for programming in BASIC, as being responsible for his career in game development.[2]
