Gaming has come a long way from its humble beginnings, which is what this evolution of Nintendo infographic looks to break down and document.

Starting in 1985, the Nintendo Entertainment System was released to critical acclaim and single-handedly brought the video gaming system back to the mainstream. The mega-gaming company has consistently held the majority of spots on top game system rankings and totes the strange statistic that more people own a Nintendo Wii in the United States than a cat. Moreover, Nintendo has a strong hold of the portable gaming market for which it has a 75% share. To finish off the list, Nintendo not only makes some of the most popular gaming systems, but also the most popular games; the Mario series has sold over 450 million copies worldwide.
