I loved a lot of them, but my favorite had to be
Kirby's Adventure (not that pussy dreamland)

I've played it for like 10 years and still haven't been able to figure out how to complete it 100%, iv'e beaten it, but haven't found all the secrets...and it's STILL fun! That's what's wrong with games these days, there's not as much replay value, they're not as in depth either.

Mega Man 1-6 - cleared all (2 in 45 minutes, final castle of 3 in 9 minutes)
Metroid - cleared
Ninja Gaiden 2 - cleared; long and damn hard
RBI Baseball (original) - amusing
Batman (original) - haven't cleared :confused:
Zelda 2 - got to final end castle..no further
Legacy Of The Wizard - only seen one boss
Castlevania 1-3 (2 being my favorite..kicks ass!) - cleared all 3
Kirby's adventure - 70 some percent, can't figure out the rest, but cleared it
mario 1 & 3 - cleared 1 and 3, didn't care for 2 so didn't bother

As far as my most favorite nes game, it would have to be a mega man, and more specifically, 3 or 4 ..with the scale leaning towards 3 but when it comes to mega man, it's hard for me to choose.

Perhaps you can tell me how to get past that brown dude who moves from one side of the screen to an other? (I think it was in mega man 1)

He's yellow. His game name has changed from Yellow Devil to Yellow Demon and he's in mega man 1 and mega man 3. In mega man 3 he's alot slower and easier.

In mega man 3, he's simple, and you just gotta sit down and have at it for that one I guess.

For mega man 1 though, there will be a section of his particles when he breaks up into pieces that will come flying at you. This group of pieces have 3 chunks of him. One low, one mid, one high. The low and mids can hit you, but the high can't - so long as you don't jump. Hop over the low one with a tap jump (small jump) then run forward while jumping over the 2nd one. You see, the 2nd one, after jumping over the 1st, is almost erady to hit you so when you run forward jumping at the same time you slow down it's rate of speed because you're moving with it partially instead of standing still hence making it come at you faster. This in turn allows you to just clear it.

If you were to give me a minute I could work up a recording through an emulator sometime. Let me know.

Nah that's ok. I hope I can do it now.
Maybe oday, I'll get my nes back from under the dust. It's been a while since I played it. And you have awakened a sleeping habbit in me :D

Thanks for the advice

My fav NES game is probably Tetris, the original classic; None of those dumb remakes like Dr. Mario :D

Shadow Warrior - that was a cool game, challenging but not unbeatable.

Mario Bros. - the graphics were shoddy, but the game play was great.

FFI - never played it on the NES, but have played it on emulators. It's really cool, if not a bit short.

My favourite Sega Master System game was Wonderboy. God I loved that game!

fav nes game- Zelda, probably the best and original game to ever come out to this day!

I've tko'ed Mike Tyson in punch out plenty of times, I still have that game.

For Mega Man 1, for anyone that might know, how do you get through that part of Dr. Wiley's level with the big wall, that you simply can't jump over or shoot?

My fav games of all time are Tony Hawk 1, Most of the Zelda's, Golden eyes, and Mario 64.

All Nintendo exclusive games except for Tony Hawk.

I also liked the Madden games a lot as well!

I thought it was fun. It wasn't anything like original Mario games, but it was different. Playing as different characters was a nice idea, as well as secret warps and such. It was sorta trippy though!

Super Mario Brothers 1 best game off all time.

Super Mario Brothers 2 was not ment to be a mario game orignaly, It was develped as another game in Japan, but as the Japanese version of Super Mario Brothers 2, known here as the Lost Levels, was to hard they took that game and replaced the characters.

Battle toads!
The hardest NES game ever!!

I've only finished it on the computer w/o cheats but with the save snapshot function.
That game is insanely hard!

I'm suprised no one even mentioned the Final Fantasy series yet. FF1 is probably one of my all-time favorites, FF2 was amazing too. In my opinion, they ruined that series when they took it 3D.

Megaman 2-6 are also way up on my list (2 and 3 being my favorites. Why is it the sequals are never as good?)

oooh, I know this one!

Mega Man was good in my opinion. 3 is probably my favorite...but 4 was GREAT too!. I didn't like 5 very much at all, and I like some aspects of 6, but not many. For instance..the introduction, the robot master stats screen, and the character selection screen jingle. The rest wasn't that great for me. The original 4 shined for me. Classic stuff. And as far as the sequels, I disagree with most people on other games. I liked castlevania 2 the best out of the nes series and really prefered Zelda 2 over the first one.

> Let's not forget the Mutant Ninja Turtles!!!
I liked the arcade better. CowaBUNGA! *bobs around* teenage mutant ninja turtles, heroes in a half shell...TURTLE POWER!

I find it harder to believe that Eibro found it hard to believe that we hadn't mentioned FF, which in itself may be hard to beli...and now I've gone cross-eyed, oh dear.

I always enjoyed Arkanoid.

Whenever I get together with friends we play punch out (which I can typically TKO Tyson within 3 attempts) or Rampage. Both are great games after you've been drinking a bit.

Oh and let's not forget about Ice Hockey.

Never played a NES. But on the SNES, Mario Kart was the best. It just oozed playability.

I don't remember how many hours I wasted on Ikari Warriors. It wasn't that good of a game but it kept me occupied for a looooonnnggg time. Anybody remember the code for more lives in that game? Wasn't it ABBA or something?

BattleToads... yes Sang-Drax, I remember that game, it was one of the coolest I ever played. For me one of the best parts of that game was the music played when you paused it.

There was this one ninja game, I cant remember the name of it. It was where you had this sword that you powered up as you progressed and it got longer, there were powerups, like, a bird to save you if you fell, and black and red/pink? balls to collect that did something i cant remember, and you also could get a powerup to make you shoot 4 ninja stars in 4 directions, you could also jump insanely high, you got keys and had to fight boss's in different doors. The first level is with lots of trees and you fight a samuri on a giant tree at the end of the first level.

I have that game esparno, I believe that it is called Demon Sword or something like that. Oh, and ffv has been released in the U.S. on the playstation as part of ff anthology (it's a great game regardless). Have you beaten shinryuu in the n-zone?
