satan665 Posted March 26, 2004 Share Posted March 26, 2004 Hoping that some of you are old enough to have had a nintendo (8-bit) or maybe just played on emulators. What I want this thread to be about is the best NES games; and tell a little bit about them and why you liked them. Do as many as you want. (try not to repeat what others have already listed) Some of the Classics I'll get out of the way: The legend of Zelda: This was a great game for nintendo. The levels weren't linear, so you could go wherever you could manage. It was challenging enough without being too frustrating. The music was ok, where basically anything that wasn't super-annoying could be considered good for nintendo. Zelda really set a standard for NES games that few lived up to. You could increase your health, had a bunch of useful weapons and tools and there was a bunch of secret places you had to find. I can still play this game today and be happy doing so. Contra: This is one of my all-time favorites. playing 2player coop, where you can work together well, or just try to jump so that the other player falls through the bottom of the level and dies. If you do that though, the 2P controller can affect the jumping of the first...and he can steal your lives too! None of the later Contra games were as good as the first. No story, you just drop down and start shooting until your hand gets tired and you destroy some evil alien brain thing. The spread shot was the best weapon, but I liked the Laser personally.
