A "nez" is your olfactory organ.

Nintendo is the modifier, but Nintendo is also the product. I played a Nintendo as a kid, I should know.

I had a friend in grade school with an NES Advantage, and for some reason he always called that the Nes (pronounced "Ness").

That was Tiny Octos rational as well.

Adult Octo uses "Regular" to difrentiate form the Super variety.

When the super NES came out, it was the Regular Nintendo.

When the N64 came out, it became the Old Nintendo.

Is it weird that I primarily think of Nintendo's 8-bit system as the Famicom and not the NES? Maybe it's because I didn't see one until I was 17.
