    Hey Guys, I know we are all busy continually tweaking our new toys but I would love to talk actual games (if any of us every take to time to actually PLAY them... lol...).

    A few of my favorites:

    Adventure of Lolo (NES)


    Puzzle game where you slide things around and collect hearts. Tons of unique strategy for every level. I played this one all the way through and loved it.

    Comix Zone (Genesis)


    Really cool beat-em up that has a unique format where you are actually fighting through the panels of the comic book. Watching the hero swing to the next panel is a great animation.

    Tetris Battle Gaiden (SNES)


    I am a Tetris nut and I also love Puzzle Fighter (another game you can play on your Nintendo Classic). This is a Japanese port so you might look up the FAQ to read how to play. It is played as normal Tetris against an opponent. You get to save up powers and use them again your opponent to mess them up or on yourself to help clear areas. Each character has their own completely unique set of powers. Super fun with 2 players and you can use the 2 button controller. Great music and animation.

    probably at home
    The first game I added was Gryzor with translation.
    It's plain old Contra with awesome animated sprites, a story and better music.

    Try Insector X. It's just a Famicom version (I wouldn't really say it's a 'port') of a side scrolling arcade shooter, but the music and atmosphere of the game is very enjoyable.
