#ILoveNES - The best NES nostalgia photos from UK Nintendo fans
Earlier this month we launched the #ILoveNES contest to celebrate the upcoming launch of the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System. To be in with a chance of winning the new console we asked UK Nintendo fans to post photos to Twitter or Instagram, showing their love and nostalgia for the NES and we were thrilled, overwhelmed and humbled by the amazing response.
We received scores of fantastic entries but in the end the winner is Instagram user @bravowstar for his creative photos you can see below…

What a great collection, and so lovingly displayed! We see not just some classic Nintendo games but a wealth of great third party titles too. There’s a lifetime of fun in those cartridges.
Who knows where a love for Nintendo games can take you. 17 years later, young Chris found himself working as a staff writer on the UK’s Official Nintendo Magazine. You might say it was his destiny.
Another superb collection with a great variety of classic games. Charlie must love the NES… He owns two of them!
We can’t get enough of how Eighties this shelf is. It brings back many fond memories. We also spot another nostalgic piece of Nintendo hardware in there…
You’re never too young to enjoy the classics so we’re thrilled to see schoolkids collecting NES games. We wouldn't know which of these to play first!
The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System releases 11th November 2016 and is available to pre-order here.
