Default Top 10+ Nintendo (NES) Games…

The Nintendo Entertainment System is responsible for reviving an otherwise dead video game market in 1985. During its peak, reports had it with one in every three households in the late 1980's/early 1990's. The NES was home to one of the historically best selling video games of all time. Many of todays marquee franchises made their bones on the NES. Anyway, with out further ado, what are YOUR favorite NES classics?

Feel free to list 10, 20, 100… they don't even have to be in order.




My List of personal favorites (not in order):
Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, & 3
The Legend of Zelda & The Adventure of Link
Metroid
Castlevania I, II, & III
Kid Icarus
Kirby's Adventure
Balloon Fight
Clu Clu Land
Slalom
Gum Shoe
Mach Rider
Excitebike
Zanac
Gun-Nac
Mega Man 1, 2, & 3
Bionic Commando
Jackel
Contra & Super C
Final Fantasy
Dragon Warrior I, II, III, & IV
Gun.Smoke
Recca: Summer Carnival '92
River City Ransom
Ninja Gaiden I & II
Shadow of the Ninja
SCAT
Abadox
Duck Tales
Baseball Stars
Tecmo Bowl
Blaster Master
Gremlins 2
Batman
Journey to Silius
Goonies II
Wizards and Warriors
The Guardian Legend
Battle of Olympus
Bubble Bobble
Rygar

Metal Gear

Man I could name more but I feel like playing some games right now…

Good list, but double dragon was always kick ass when I was growing up.

Also, I doubt anyone else has heard of this one, but "Kickle Cubicle" ? A FANTASTIC puzzle game.

Honestly, there probably ARE 100 great games for NES, but I'd have to look, it's been so long since I've thought about it.

Excitebike - that track edit thing was sooooo nice
Mega Man 3 - Blues is still my fave mega man character
Bionic Commando - if this game had a jump button it would surpass other platformers
Jackel - awesome konami 2 player game
River City Ransom - I remember playing this while Color Me Badd played on the radio
Ninja Gaiden I - probably the first to use cut scenes
Rygar - who would forget their theme music
Strider - this is where I first heard KAZAKHSTAN

Paperboy
Metroid
Excitebike
Mega Man
Castlevania
Rygar
Hockey (fat guy, skinny guy, average guy edition)

I could go for some Paperboy right now actually. Remember how you'd finish your route and have to run the obstacle course at the end? Hilarious. Little dog chasing after you...

they just made a new one for the ds. it's awesome. so glad they haven't touched a thing on this game with it's new versions. one of the most fun games of all time, never owned it on nes, but i must have rented it enough times to pay for it twice!
