    The NES featured a number of groundbreaking games, such as the platform game Super Mario Bros, the action-adventure game The Legend of Zelda and the action game Metroid. As one of the best-selling gaming consoles of its time, the NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983.[11] Nintendo introduced a now-standard business model of licensing third-party developers to produce and distribute games for the NES.[12] The NES was succeeded by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
