8 bit gaming made gaming a success. The 8 bit generation home consoles are the NES, Sega Master System, and Atari 7800. Each consoles had classics. The NES had classics like Mario, Zelda, Metroid, and Blaster Master. The Master System had classics like Phantasy Star, Ys, Wonderboy, and Alex the Kidd. The 7800 had classics like Galaga, Asteroids, and Commando. The Master System did not sell well because the lack of third party games. The Atari 7800 sold very poorly because mosts games were ports from 2600. The NES sold really well because of all the classics and third party support.
