From the original Zelda games on the NES to GoldenEye 007 on the N64 and Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas on the PS2, we take a look at the consoles of choice for retro gamers across America.

You never forget the first time you completed Super Mario Bros. You also never forget the first time you held one of those iconic retro Playstation controllers or when the best way to troubleshoot a game was to blow the cartridge.

Times have changed and new consoles have come and gone, but there is still something to be said about those iconic gaming systems that we were raised on. Their games have a unique charm that no amount of fancy graphics can make up for, which is why we turn to emulators and why original NES games still in their boxes go for hundreds of dollars on eBay.

To celebrate the release of a new infographics, which digs into the favorite consoles by state and favorite games by states, we thought wed jump on in and take a look at the data.

Head on over to https://www.jjgames.com/blog/ to check it out!

No surprise that the PS2 is the most popular retro console across the vast majority of the country, seeing as how it was the best-selling home console of all freaking time. Got a kick out of California being all about the N64, though.

And it should come as no surprise that Washington state, home of Nintendo of America, lists the NES as its fave retro console... though it is rather odd that the state's most popular retro title is an N64 game.

But the most amusing revelation was South Dakota being the sole handheld state in the union. Are they lacking in TV sets to plug home consoles into out there or something?
