Ok, new site so let’s go back to the basics. Also, just have fun with this, it’s impossible to include everything in 15 titles. Anything on the system counts (home brews included).

First (1-5): List your top 5 favorite (nostalgic) games on the NES. Doesn’t matter if they sucked. You played em. You love em. List those 5 first.

Second (6-10): List what you deem to be the greatest 5 titles of the whole catalog. If it’s considered 8-bit and plays on the system, it counts.

Third (11-15): List 5 games you never knew about (or never played early on) and now absolutely love.

 

1. Bigfoot

2. Sqoon

3. TMNT 2

4. Anticipation 

5. Super Mario Brothers/Duck Hunt (a small cheat, but hey, they were on the same cart)

 

6. Legend of Zelda 

7. Contra

8. Super Mario Brothers 3

9. Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers

10. Baseball Stars

 

11. Metroid

12. Kirby’s Dream Land

13. Ufouria 

14. Tetris

15. Lan Master

 

Go!

I didn't appreciate the games in my "best" list until I was an adult except SMB3, so those are basically the same for unknown. Add in Golgo 13 for #5.
