My Top 10 NES Games

I never really loved the NES, even when it was the only thing out there. But it did have far better options than anything before it, and among all the crap on the console, there were still a few gems. So let’s take a look at my 10 favorite out of the 32 I own, though I have only played 28 of them so far.

Megaman4_box

Mega Man 4

Capcom

1992

 

 

 

 

All the Mega Man games feel like the same game to me, but just kept getting better slightly, as if it’s one game with DLC being constantly added to it. I was always excited to see what robots they would come out with next.

Like I said, they just keep getting better.

#8

Megaman6_box

Mega Man 6

Capcom

1994

 

 

 

This is the best one on the NES. I told you, I’m not a huge fan of NES, but the Mega Man series is fantastic.

Kid Icarus

Nintendo

1987

 

 

 

This game is really hard, but also quite satisfying, so that I never really got mad over the countless times I died. The gameplay is just really fun and keeps you wanting more. When you beat it, it’s a great feeling.

#6

Castlevania_II_Simon's_Quest

Castlevania II: Simon’s Quest

Konami

1988

 

 

 

This is a ridiculously impossible to figure out game. But with a walkthrough, it is so much fun and one of my favorite Castlevania games of all time.

#5

zelda-2

 

Zelda II: The Adventure of Link

Nintendo

1988

 

 

 

This is another really hard game, but again, quite satisfying. It really is a lot of fun once you get strong enough to hold your own.

#4

Super_Mario_Bros_2

Super Mario Bros 2

Nintendo

1988

 

 

 

Quite a turn from the first game, but man is it fun. A really great platformer.

Kirby’s Adventure

HAL Labs/ Nintendo

1993

 

 

 

What a unique and fantastic platformer. So much fun…

#2

zelda

The Legend of Zelda

Nintendo

1987

 

 

 

Oh. My. God. This was easily the most ambitious and by far the best game to ever come out at it’s time. It’s a huge game packed with secrets, enemies and items and it just was jaw dropping, and still is really…

#1

Super_Mario_Bros._3_coverart

Super Mario Bros 3

Nintendo

1990

 

 

 

In the way Zelda shattered everything, this game did just as much. It took a classic and improved upon it 100fold. It’s just so big, with so many paths and items. One of the best platformers out there and one of the best games of all time.

And there you have it. My top 10 must haves for the console that started modern gaming.
