Lots of games have already been mentioned:

 

What about Paperboy and Ice Hockey (the one where you could change your guys size: fat, regular and skinny)

Chimonos Revenge - 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.


Well so far at least 3 of us disagree with you about The Great BASEWARS!


You missed out.

So I was one of those kids who some how found himself with the worst of the NES library. My experience was basically around most if not all the shitty games. Wasn't till I started playing games with the new kid who just moved in did I learn about Jackal or Super Dodgeball. Same trend happened with Sega Genesis. Not only did I pick the lesser of the two 16 bit systems( my opinion) but I had a knack for being drawn to shit. I was even one of those idiots who got a 32x. Wasn't until N64/PSX/Dreamcast did I really have a good console experience. 

I was always partial to Wizards and Warriors on the NES. Luckily I never got the sequel with Fabio on the cover.

My dad had a friend who owned a mom and pop video game store growing up. 

He ended up going out of business and my dad bought like 100 games for a ridiculously cheap price. I still remember him coming home and playing a game for like 2 minutes then trying another, then another. I was in heaven.

Ended up giving the ones I didnt like to my cousins lol, which there were alot of.

I was only like 4 or maybe 5 but I remember playing Bill and Ted and not knowing what anything was about. Rembrandt lol.

720 got alot of play.

Bubble Bobble.

Contra.

Dick Tracy was cool as a kid.

Alot of these would probably suck balls now lol.

I'm barely up to the Es and had alot of those games.

Double Dragon might have been my favorite though.

The Genesis was great.
Street Fighter 2 champions edition and Wonder Boy in Monster World alone made it worth it. The Sonic games were cool too.

Of course, SNES had Zelda Link To The Past -- one of the best Zelda games!


Iron Sword, Wizards and Warriors 2 -- was an awesome game!! Yes, Fabio on the cover LOL.

I put so much goddamn time into the first two Ninga Guidans it's not even funny.  Thanks to the magic of YouTube I've now been able to see the final bosses and endings.
