Hard to pick a favorite. 

 

Castlevania

Zelda

Mario 3

Final Fantasy

 

It would be a huge list for me to name my favorites.

 

Also, was I the only one who thought the game was over when you got to the first Castle in Mario 1?

Some great ones mentioned.

 

Ones I enjoyed that haven't been mentioned yet-

 

Top Gun 2(Top Gun 1 was fun too, but I loved the dogfight 2 player mode in the sequal)

Super Sprint

Pro Am Racing 2(So much fun!!!)

Ikari Warriors

Here's a little tidbit many people were too young to even think about, but some NES games(such as Super Sprint) came as a black cartridge instead of the normal gray cartridge.  This meant that these black cartridge games were not licensed by Nintendo and technically they were supposed to be illegal, but there was some loophole that allowed many companies to make these black cartridge games before the law changed and outlawed them for good.

Fuck Top Gun, lol

Also, Tengen was Atari

Unlicensed games weren't illegal, but Nintendo only allowed unlicensed game manufacturers to release 5 games per year max, and they had to be exclusive to Nintendo Only

I mentioned Base Wars.

I dont think many played it, but it was one of my favorites!

It was robots playing baseball. If there was a force out or stolen base, the robots would fight to see who got the call.

You could customize your team by creating and naming your robots. Then you could upgrade them with better engines, stronger throwing arms, make them faster, as well as buy them weapons for fighting.
There were Mcycle bots, tank boots, hover boots, and regular cyborgs.

Base Wars made baseball better.
Great game.
I still remember the HOME RUN music!

Lol @ basewars

I always thought that game was dumb

What about Super Spike V'Ball? I wild eached a lot of that game.
You could play 4 player, with the 4-controller port thiny NES put out.

I didn't give a rats ass about volleyball as a kid, but that game was fun to play.
