Great Britain isn't in Europe?
LOL. Oh yeah, Brexit. Not anymore, huh?
I said there is no such thing as "European" culture. Because America has deviated to a large degree from all of those individual cultures. We have our own culture
Oh yes, because let's pretend that the U.S., Canada, and Australia don't share 99.9% of the same culture as Great Britain, including the same language and almost exact same legal/political systems, personal customs, etc. (Canada partially excluded, because of that damned Quebec). There is WAY more variation in culture and language in China than there ever has been between the UK and its English-speaking colonies, but that doesn't stop people from referencing "Chinese culture" or even "Asian culture."
Also, there is no such mentality in the progressive community to exclude whites in any way shape or form.

The vitriol of anti-white hatred (especially white MALES) coming from the SJW left these days is fucking palpable. The level of white guilt and white self-hatred in particular would be funny if it weren't so dangerous. It's gotten to the point where I strongly suspect that we would already be seeing "Whites need not apply" addendums to many job postings if that weren't still technically illegal. Oh wait, in the UK at least, we already are.
People will pay more than $60 for a single cartridge of one Mario Brothers game (or $5 for a downloadable version for their Wii). The NES Classic is a helluva bargain by comparison.
Let's be honest here. How many people are going to buy this thing and only use ROM's they've made themselves from their own cartridges and discs? Hell, how many people would even know HOW to make ROM's for this thing?
As with pretty much all 3rd-party emulators, the creators know full well what it's going to be used for.
1) It's simple
2) It's plug-and-play
3) It's cheap (or rather, it will be when you can find them in stock)
Most other emulator consoles only succeed at #3. Most people aren't going to hunt down ROM's from skeavy pirate sites or buy overpriced old cartridges just to play old games. They want something they can just buy, plug-in, and play.

Now that vinyl has become mainstream again, cue the inevitable backlash from the hipsters.
I was into that band way before they became popular. That makes me better than you.
I cancelled my sub several months ago and haven't regretted it one bit.
Netflix has made the decision to go full-bore on original content and completely neglect their back catalog, and that's fine. But the harsh fact is that they will never be able to produce enough original content to make it worthwhile keep subbing for that alone. Even HBO, whose original content is much better and more consistent, still has to offer a good catalog of movies and other content to justify a monthly subscription. And Netflix's once-amazing back catalog used to be what set it apart from HBO, Hulu, and Amazon. But it has shrunk drastically in the last year or two to the point where it's getting harder and harder to find decent content.
Anyway, at a certain point earlier this year, I realized that:
1) Amazon's back catalog now rivals Netflix's. And Amazon's service essentially comes for "free" with my Prime membership (that I already keep just for the free shipping).
2) Netflix's original content, while good, isn't worth the subscription cost just by itself.
3) For about the same cost, I could dump Netflix and pick up ad-free Hulu, which gives me access to a ton of old TV shows that were once on Netflix but aren't anymore.
The choice was then clear. Sorry Netflix, Stranger Things is a great series. But it ain't $10-a-month good.
