Perhaps, but for many it was a cost thing. Whatever mum and dad could afford, and in the US in the 80s NES was miles cheaper than a computer at the time. Can't fault people for not having nostalgia for things they never owned. All the same, I didn't grow up with a C64, and I still love C64 music. So I can't forgive people for not being open minded to it even if they never had it early on.
