Nintendo is putting out a mini-Nintendo game console in November with 30 built in games, so I decided to let the world know what my faves are from that golden time in my life. I was 10 years old and getting a Nintendo for Christmas was the best present I had ever received and would ever receive. It was the Red Ryder BB gun of all Christmas presents!
9. RBI Baseball
8. Blaster Master
7. Bionic Commando
6. Tecmo Bowl
Castlevania was a game that I got right after I got my NES system that included Super Mario Bros and Duck Hunt. The eeriness and dark nature of the game drew me in right away. I don’t know why. Maybe because Im a macabre loving basterd.
4. Mega Man 2
3. Super Mario Bros
The complexity of this game is crazy. Especially because its the benchmark of the NES system that usually came with the original Nintendo system. It could take a whole summer to finish and had great easter eggs hidden within it. A true video game for the ages.
2. The Legend of Zelda
This game would piss me off to no end. Great screen to screen exploration, along with tough levels….the Legend of Zelda brought what Sierra gave us in King’s Quest to the Nintendo system. I almost cried when I finally beat it.
This game was so damn awesome, I don’t think I put down my controller and almost became a video-game addict. Graphics were off the chart, roll jumps…..you have a hand that shoots a laser ball. And you’re a chick….cool twist!
I’m just geeking out right now and giddy about getting to play some of these games with my son. I was his age when I got my Nintendo. Thank you, Nintendo!
Please tell me you’re favorite NES games and if you disagree with my top 10.
