0 - 50 POINTS: Go back to your N64. I bet most of these points were earned only because of your past accomplishments. You are not a true NES fan.
51 - 100 POINTS: A marginal NES fan. Perhaps you're just getting started in the renaissance, so don't lose hope yet.
101 - 150 POINTS: A passable NES fan. You do have some loyalty to the NES, but you still haven't reached the level of true enlightenment yet.
151 - 200 POINTS: A devoted NES fan. You have a lot of games, and your presence in the NES fandom is widely felt.
201 - 250 POINTS: An unwavering NES fan. Chances are you've sold your other systems, and have a slight allergic reaction to sunlight.
251+ POINTS: An exclusive NES fan. You have daily conversations with Mario and Link, and there are so many game paks in your room you've had to devote your entire closet to storing them.
