For those of us who grew up when the NES was jawdropping!
After playing pong and atari, playing mario bros at home was seriously a religious experience!
After reading through the BTTF vid game thread I got to thinking about those old NES games. I still have several and decided to pull it out. Most games are absolutely horrid to play, while some are still awesome. All 3 mario games are as good as ever. They are sidescrolling gold IMHO.
My 2 favorite games of all time on that system though are still Blaster Master, and Ninja Gaiden. I don't know anyone other than me that beat either game, and I can still bust through both of em pretty quick up untill their last few UNBELIEVABLY hard levels.
Just got to level 6 in blaster master in 1 life!
What are/were your favorites on this old timer?
You can throw in any other games too. But what are/were your faves on the NES in particular?
