The definitive games console of the '80s.

 -

Very underrated game. Directly translated from the Japanese and clearly influenced by Bill & Ted, the story was considered by some to be random and impenetrable. But what's not to understand about a surfer dude who, through the sparring use of recreational power ups, can turn into an amphibian, magical eagle-man and shimmering lion?

 -

Bring out the Light Gun! A zapper classic that still stands up today.

 -

They changed the name after Tyson's controversial run in with the fuzz. So a lot of us grew up with this version...

 -

...where your fighter would have to beat Mr. Dream to become world champ. I always thought Mr. Dream was an unworthy champion put there by 'The Man'...made the game a little more interesting IMO. But whether his name is on it or not, this one will always belong to Iron Mike!

Timeless.

 -

First one came with the box (the one pictured is the old, old school Mario-- just as good), but it was an unwritten rule that you had to have Mario Bros. in your collection. Mario 2 was the most original by far, but a good set of games overall, and an iconic saga in NES history.

 -

A bit dated now, but hands down, the best Arcade to console conversion of its day. Cowabunga!...or something.

 -

Vintage beat em' up, would remain in joint first position with Final Fight until Street Fighter II came along.

 -

Many a night was lost trying to clock this futuristic shoot em' up, never did though.

 -

From Russia with fun! A gaming masterpiece.

Alot of the games I liked to play might not have been among the best of the NES library. But this is a list of the most frequently played games in my collection growing up.


 -
I played this one so much that pretty soon I became known as the "Pro AM King" amongst my friends. No one could clock this game faster than me. [Cool]


 -
Hands down one of my favorite shoot em ups on the NES.


 -
This game was so addicting, but so fun to play. Another game I played so much that soon none of my friends were able to top my score.


 -
This was a favorite among me and my friends to play Head-to-Head on.


 -
This game did tend to get stale and repetitive pretty quickly because the levels just went on and on in an endless cycle. But the cyborg craft you piloted in this game was cool as hell and it was always fun to annihilate the enemies when you had all your cyborg parts.


 -
This game got frustrating as hell at some points...But it was still very fun to play. This is one of few games I don't think I ever conquered.


 -
Possibly my favorite platform shooter..with the great arsenal of awesome weapons and some of the coolest looking bosses...this game just kicks all sorts of a$$!

Oh, the NES memories!

I could play Mario Bros from start to end while sleeping.
Knew every stage, enemy, trap and short cut. Inside out and outside in.

We also played The Legend of Zelda and Zelda II: The Adventure of Link
all day and night long.

 -  -

And the countless hours playing Ice Hockey.
It was a funny game including three kinds of players
- the first is fast, weak, and feeble, but is good at the face-off;
the second is average in all qualities, and the third is slow and poor at the face-off,
but very powerful, both in body checking and shooting strength.

My kids and their friends are huge fans of the old Super-NES game "Zombies Ate My Neighbors." They play it on the Nintendo Wii system with the old-school controllers. It was done by George Lucas's company, I believe, and it is one of the funniest, most addicting games around. There's even a shopping mall level, just like being in a George Romero zombie movie.

Ghosts N Goblins was so hard but awesome. Very disappointing though because once you beat the game(or so you think), you have to do it all over again making it nearly impossible. I think it was rated the hardest game to beat of all time.

Devolution here,

Has anyone here ever heard of the Angry Video Game Nerd? His language is a bit rough but he reviews games that were either hard or impossible from when we were kids. He puts footage from the game in and over the years has done a great job of editing. He is also well knowledged in the movies across the board, a real student of this who I kind of respect.

We are DEVO

i seen the freddy and jason one, some funny stuff there, seems though some of the cursing is a bit forced, diffrent ways of expressing anger could be funnier.

Bernie, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to do this.

At the top of the page, click on My Profile, then on Edit Profile.

You should be able to update your Publicly Displayed Name. Bear in mind that if the name you want is already taken, you'll not be able to change it. However, 'Bernie Lomax' without the underscore should be no problem.
