Snail Tooth Gaming

Playing, collecting and studying Nintendos history

Fighter Sprite Avatar Transparent

My long time love for Nintendo is unwavering. Growing up with the NES, SNES and beyond embodied everything I love about video games. The stories, the art style, the ruthless challenge that I fell in love with continues today through the current generation of Nintendo hardware and software. There is nothing like sitting down on the couch with some buddies and playing some Nintendo. Their core franchises, The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Super Mario Brothers and many more, mean more to me than any movie, book or any other form of media ever could. Playing these masterpieces has had a profound impact on my life.

I have amassed a large physical collection of Nintendo games and hardware. I have spent a lot of time and effort modding my original consoles to output the best video quality. I capture our video exclusively on original hardware and take all my own photos. I started Snail Tooth Gaming because I found that there were no websites out there that provided the quality content that I desired and I was sick of seeing stretched, blurry, emulated game videos and reviews that were done by people that seemingly didn’t finish the game. I give you the perspective of a well seasoned gamer after playing the game to completion, while trying to deliver that perspective through high quality imagery.

I am a gamer first and a collector second.  For all my fellow Nintendo gamers out there, from retro to current generation, this is a one stop shop for news, reviews, videos and articles.
