Lets talk about one of the greatest game consoles of all time: Nintendo Entertaiment System.

There was an article about Nintendo in local newspaper. When i read it, i had huge urge to plug the cords and play some of the classic games (Does Super Mario say anything to you?).

The Nintendo was my first console ever. Little Samson was my first game ever. I even beated Super Mario when i was 3 years old.

Some of the classic NES games that il never forget:
Super Mario Series: The basic 2D jumping adventures of the worlds famous video game hero: Mario
Duck Hunt: I loved this game because of the lightgun. Shoot ducks.
Shadowgate: An adventure game on NES.
Track & Field: Sports game. Push buttons very fast and rabidly.
Faxanadu: And RPG & Platform jumping mixture. Great music.
Tetris: Do i really have to say something about this?? Okay then: Im pro in this one!
Nintendo World Cup: A very violent soccer game.
Metal Gear: Spy-game. Infiltrate and Destroy Metal Gear.
Bionic Commando: Save the world from soldiers (also called "baddies" and "Nazis") by using a bionic hand.
Star Wars: Forget those new crappy Episode 1-3 games! This is the true king of Star Wars games!

Of course, i should also list Mike Tyson's Punch Out, Cobra, Legend of Zelda and many others, but i never had a change to play any of these classics..

What about you? Do you have any sweet memories of NES?

Thats all, now im off to download some ROM's.

Word, the NES was the greatest console ever.. (I've said this before on these forums, but I still have my NES set up in my room.. good times.. nothing like an impromptu 2 player game of DD or Track And Field)

My Top 5 NES games:-


Legend Of Zelda
Bubble Bobble
Isolated Warrior
Rad Gravity
Kid Icarus >> These two both make my top 10 games of all time list


Others that need to be mentioned:
Dragons Lair, Maniac Mansion, Double Dragon, Californian Games, Metroid, Excite Bike, Little Nemo ..oh...and to a lesser extent... Dark Wing Duck =p

Lots of sweet memories... I still have that old shoebox plugged on tv ready for thumb killing action. Good ol' days, you had to be a really good player if you wished to complete even a single game.
