    Does anyone remember the good old days of NES where nintendo all began. I used to love playing super mario brothers, duck hunt, Batman, football fever, and top gun to name a few...

    What were your favorite games?

    My absolute favorite NES games were Megaman 2 and Contra. I remember when I was young I never was able to beat Contra and I would have to watch my dad play(who was much better than me). I played Megaman 2 really late. My first Megaman game was actually X2 for SNES(Which is also my favorite Megaman game to date), but I still love the NES series.

    I have 2 NES systems, one PAL and one NTSC. They're absolutely amazing, I just love to play with my NES. Emulators don't have the same atmosphere at all, you gotta play with the real thing to get the feeling =]

    I still play SMB and castlevania from time to time; My absolute favorite has to be Zelda. Nowadays, the series is much easier, it's not bad, but back then, you took *months* to finish a zelda game. And the second quest.
    Oh, and...

    oh and Ufouria.
    Two of the greatest games on NES IMO, beside the obvious SMB series.

    Seems people are talking about games that are now regarded as classics, for the most part.

    Did anyone totally love, or otherwise play the shit out of a game that they have fond memories of, but if they had to play it now would rather remove their fingernails?

    For some reason, when I was young, the original Metal Gear was a game that I would play for hours on end, and never really get anywhere. I didn't truly understand the nature of the game or what I had to do, but something about it really struck a chord with me at that age. Now, not so much, but I still love it simply for nostalgia.
