Welcome to the NES Wiki
NESing, the act of playing a Never Ending Story (NES) is an evolution of a forum activity that occurred on the websites of Civilization Fanatics Center and Apolyton, and has since spread into Strategic Command Center. Starting out as a story and occasionally trending towards game-like traits, it has grown into something of a hybrid between a game and a story, or perhaps a mixture of role-playing and strategy. Its massive adaptability has led to it extreme diversity, and thus it lacks a simple, concise categorization as a story or a game.
The sheer size of the community (upwards of 50-60 members) has led to a consistent subculture of the site. It is in fact large enough that some NESers have a certain degree of fame or notoriety, despite the large number of NESes the various communities have accrued. Though a quirky group of people, it is thriving nonetheless, and still going strong despite many of the original founders leaving and moving on with their lives - in fact, strongly enough to warrant its own IRC Channel.
