Anyone still own an original Nintendo NES system? I do! What are your favorite games?
My top ten are as follows:

1. The Legend of Zelda
2. The Legend of Zelda II
3. Crystalis
4. Super Mario Bros.
5. Super Mario Bros 2
6. Super Mario Bros 3
7. Wizards and Warriors
8. Star Tropics
9. Star Tropics II: Zoda's Revenge
10. Contra

To complete a top 15 I would add:

11. Mickey Mousecapade
12. Ducktales
13. Tetris
14. Kirby's Adventure
15. Dr. Mario

I have all of these and more. I have the complete system with both controllers and the light gun - though I can't use that anymore because it doesn't work with the new HD tv displays, so I can't play my Duck Hunt game that comes with my Super Mario Bros. game. But that's ok. I love all the other games.

So, do you have one? What are your favorite games?

My family had a Nintendo, but it died when I was very young (around 4?) and then my parents bought a Sega. I remember playing Duck Hunt and Kirby all the time, but they're only vague memories. I think we had DuckTales, but I can't remember what it was like at all. I used to wish we still had a Nintendo though because my cousins had one and the games were awesome, especially Nintendo 64 with the Mario racing game.

I always wanted to play Mario, but have never been able to. I think the last time I got to play was Mario Sunshine on my sister's GameCube whenever she wasn't home which was addictive, but I never finished.

I have one, and still play it, though it will be need of repairs soon. It is getting to the point where blowing into cartridges (who remembers doing that?) is no longer helping.

Anyway, I did get one back in the 80's, and would play with it for hours, to a point where my parents took it away during the weekdays, and later on, for good. So I ended up giving away my games, and only times I would play video games period, are at friends' house or arcades.

It was not until the Angry Video Game Nerd came onto the scene, was when I started to get nostalgic for the NES, and decided to get one for myself. Plus I ended up buying some of the same games that I gave away back then, plus ones I never got before. Also, I would finally beat some games after 2 decades.

Some of my favorites are The Legend of Zelda, Castlevania, and Rush'n Attack. And when baseball season is around, I like to play "RBI Baseball", though the controls can be frustrating at times, making it hard to beat the computer.

I am content just playing with original and Super NES, and not really in a hurry to get a Wii or latest Playstation or XBox. I have been meaning to get the sequels to Super Mario Bros, but never got around to it. Also, I thought about trying the games based on Disney movies, but I hear and assume, most of those games suck!

Yeah, mine sometimes has a few glitches too, though I can still play it. Yesterday I just finished playing "The Legend of Zelda" for the umpteenth time! I love that game! Especially now that I know where all the items are! Hahaha!!!

I remember back in the day I was going crazy trying to find the Red Ring and would burn every bush and put bombs in every wall of the overworld and I would look in every dungeon room for secret passageways to find it. I didn't know it was in a secret room in dungeon 9! Until finally one day, I finally found it!!!

So much fun! :)


How about "Crystalis"? Anyone ever play that game? Looks like a re-vamped, futuristic version of Zelda! Very captivating!

I collect a lot of old systems, but I haven't even bought an NES yet. I always seem to lean more towards the 16-bit systems like the SNES and Genesis over the 8-bit systems, so I always put them first. But I still very much acknowledge the significance of the NES and it's library of games in video game history, as well as it's significance with Nintendo.

Ducktales is out for PS3 and it's the same NES game. It has been remastered!

I intend on getting that for my Xbox 360 sometime soon. I love the whole 2D look that it has.

I considered starting to collect some Disney games, but I hear, most of them were terrible. Once again, proving that most games based on movies, just sucks ass.

That isn't exactly true in Disney's case. Disney Interactive has made quite a few games over the years that I thought were pretty good.

I was at the rehearsal dinner for a wedding, and what should be there? Yep, a NES. The only one I've seen for real. Played a bit of SMB on it.

Still have mine! The only thing that sucks is that you can't use the zapper on the new TVs.

Favorite Games:
All the Mario games
Tetris
ExciteBike (even though I don't own this one, It's one of my favorites)
Final Fantasy
Goonies II

Also got a SNES but I need to replace it. My dad killed it playing Caesers Palace for way too long. lol. I found a place in the states that sells a console for $50 that has slots for NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis games. I might order it once I start making money again.
