Year of the Animal: a 365-day journey through the NES game catalogue

Now you’re playing with power… every day for a year!

Nintendo

According to Wikipedia, there are 716 known licensed games for the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). It’d take a lot of time and effort to get through all that in a lifetime so Justin LaGrande aka 8-Bit Animal has decided to play 1 game every day in 2022.

He has dubbed it “Year of the Animal” and his NES pilgrimage will feature less of the classics as he said he has “actively avoided games previously covered during the three years of the Summer of 8-Bit”, another video series on his channel. Get ready for the likes of Spelunker, Power Blade, Adventures of Lolo 2, and Snoopy’s Silly Sports Spectacular and stream the first video above (and try this playlist link for the full thing which I tried to embed but it didn’t work).
