The lights are on
So, I'm seeing all of these threads for SNES and N64 games, and yet none for the original: the NES. So...what's your favorite NES game? Obscure or mainstream, it really doesn't matter. That game that you just played for hours and (quite possibly) even still go back to play.
Personally, I was always a huge fan of Megaman 5 and the original Legend of Zelda.
"The Parent's Guide to Video Games"
Too bad I can't play it on my current television...
believe or not, the game I played over and over again was "Who Framed Roger Rabbit" to this day I maintain that that was the first good game version of a film.
yes, reason and logic have long been a part of organized religion; ever since two nudists took dietary advice from a snake.
Ninja Gaiden and Double Dragon II. I played those games nonstop.
The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, and Mario.
Nintendo's first-party software owned my soul in the early years.
(Though I was more of a Genesis guy if given the choice.)
Duck Hunt. I love playing that game!!! To bad I can't shoot the dog when he laughs at me.
Final Fantasy, Legendary Wings, Legend of Zelda, and of course my absolute favorite game of all time Blaster Master. There are many honorable mentions but these are by far my favorites for the NES.
Loz2: Adventures of Link
Castlevania2: Simon's Quest
I can't believe I forgot about Super Mario Bros. 2!! I used to play that game all the time too.
Probably The Legend of Zelda.
I can't choose between Megaman 2 or Final Fantasy. They both glued me to the screen for a long time.
Batman and Metal Gear.
Metal Gear but there are a few right behind it like Zelda, Contra, and Ikari Warriors.
I absolutely loved Super Mario Bros! My favorite part was being able to find all of the stars. I just saw on Kickstarter (www.kickstarter.com/.../find-the-secret-stars) that these guys are bringing it to real life through an iPhone app it makes me feel really nostalgic for the old Mario games. Definitely getting this app when it comes out!
My favorite NES game will always be the first one I ever bought, Star Tropics. What a fun game that was....ahhhh, the memories.
