I was never a Nintendo fanboi, but I got both given the price. Purely by chance I scored the original NES Mini when nobody could find them, shortly after Nintendo said that was the last of that production run.

I clocked maybe one hour on the NES. And probably less than 20 minutes on the SNES. Except for the original Donkey Kong, I'm pretty much a Mario hater (I find the games childish), and it seems like Nintendo was already all about Mario by the time the SNES came out, so to me the SNES was a worse buy then the NES.

I also got the minified Commodore 64 this week. My verdict (so far):

a) So far I'm enjoying its bundled games a lot more

b) Pity its included joystick is so bad with them; having a keyboard is a must with some

c) Even though you're supposed to be able to hook up a USB hub to connect both an external keyboard and thumbdrive (to play a game you've downloaded yourself rather than one that's included), the cheap hub I tried didn't work - hopefully a better quality one will; I just haven't had a chance to try yet.
