Gaming crash of the 80s the western markets crashed it's how Nintendo usurped Atari and the old guard stop playing coy.

There's no playing coy. Western markets didn't crash. Only the US crashed, Europe didn't.

Western market crashed mate the NES got things back in order that 8m was not a flop like you want to paint it it was a massive success as those numbers were never reached before in Europe you're using logic flawed on a number of levels here EU compared to US was not even a blip back in those days before NES came into play then it was shown the was a viable market there. A flop is not a product that is the most successful of its era otherwise under your logic any game that hasn't sold as much as Wii Sports and GTAV are flops.
