well, I don't remember the 'select' button having to be pressed...but yes, that was the ever popular 30 lives code..the game was virtually impossible to beat without it. [Cool]

These are not NES games but when it comes to Disney games
i´ve always loved Quackshot on Sega Mega Drive/Genesis.

Another great one is Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse.

I just fired up my arcade over the weekend after not using it for ages. Good work on revamping the thread.

I remember Castle of Illusion very well.

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.

Hey Paul, I have only just seen your message:

I tried removing the underscore by doing what you said and I got this message afterwards:

The login or public display name that you are trying to use has been reserved by an existing member. Please select another.

The thought of a Bernie Lomax imposter running around on the boards is too much for me. I will keep the underscore for now I guess, as it seems to becoming a bit of a fad [Big Grin]

in the latest issue of game informer magazine they had a article about the upcoming legend of zelda game, and did a history of all the previous games, one of the guys wrote a story about trying to track down the first game in 1987, calling all the department stores and what not, it got me thinking about how things were back then before internet, how it was hard to figure out game secrets, having to rely on the nintendo power or calling the hotline, not to mention continously calling up the stores trying to track down a game. not to mention first playing the game. its crazy how you forget some of that stuff and then it comes right back

Got a few more to add to the list...


 -
There were quite a few flaws in this game. It was very glitchy, the graphics were slow and pretty crude even for the NES...But, even so..it was still cool to play for some reason. And alot of the enemies and Bosses looked pretty cool.


 -
This one came out toward the end of the NES Glory Days, right before SNES & Sega took over. But it was a good game. Funny, and pretty challenging in alot of parts.


 -
OK..alot of people actually rank this as one of the WORST games on the NES. And that's very understandable considering the ridiculously difficult gameplay and terrible controls. But, if you spent countless hours mastering them like I did...then this game actually becamse pretty addicting.


 -
Yeah!..this game blew "Skate or Die" clear out of the water! Awesome Game!


 -
This was kind of a cheap "Contra" Knock-off...but still held some nice replay value.


 -
Though this game was pretty boring up front and very repetitive, it was still a good game to play to take some pent up aggression out on.


 -
A great game for any puzzle game enthusiest. But also quite enjoyable for those who just liked to go around smashing stuff with a hammer. An instant classic in my eyes.

People People People, has anyone mentioned the best sports game of all time????

Tecmo Super Bowl was a game changer and still one of the most enjoyable sports games out there. I could go on all day about this game and how great it is. This game has given me more "nintendo thmub" injuries than any other!!

Agree man, Ghosts and Goblins was very hard. I never finished it but had tons of fun trying. Never heard of alot of these but I think after ZELDA and Mario, METROID was pretty awesome. [Razz]

Aside from all the other random NES games I would play. I also spent countless hours playing all the Megaman games. They still have to be among my all time favorites.

Was anyone a fan of Marble Madness back in the day? I did always have a soft spot for that.

The best NES game I have - Mario Golf! It was the first, and only, NES game that has a save feature. You can save your place in a game of golf, and it also saves your stats, and replays of your best shots.
If only other games in the range allowed that, especially something like TMNT which took hours upon hours to reach the end, by which time you were so frustrated you'd switch off in anger!

Super C has a special place in my NES nostalgic memory. It's the only game that frustrated me so bad that I pulled the game out, screamed at it..then proceeded to chop the cartridge up into little pieces with an axe I found in the garage. So yeah, to say this game is hard and frustrating as hell is putting it lightly.

I always liked games by Konami. They looked more real than the cartoon Nintendo brand games. Some that come to mind are Rush n' Attack and Contra.
