I'd love to hear what your favourite NES game is.

Faxandu - This game stays close to my heart always. Personally blows the 8-bit Zelda games out of the water. The music, the atmosphere, the AI and NPC interection really made you feel like you were part of something big. The best action-rpg of the 8-bit era

Indy Heat, graphics are crap but gameplay is still good!

was never a big fan of the nes and didn't get to play that many games,but as a curve ball the game i remember most fondly is gremlins 2 the new batch,a fun shooter/platformer that i found very challenging but a lot of fun.

Ducktales was one of the best! But the ultimate was Super Mario Bros 3, for sure - the pirated cart we had on sale in South Africa allowed you to cheat to get the whistle and access any world any time!

Nothin came close to the Super Mario Bros series in my opinion.

Double Dragon 2 - it's the only game on the NES that actually manages to be better than the arcade original.

Star Wars - for tis the only one I ever played on the original hardware. Doesn't make it any less good, mind.

You're going to get a lot of this, and with good reason: Super Mario Brothers 3. It's not aged one bit, it still plays as perfectly as it ever did. Just brilliant.

The only one I've played a bit is Rad Racer, a very average racer. I know this will mark me as a Nintendo hater, but everytime I see a NES in action I feel very lucky to have been a C64 owner at the time :mrgreen:

The slightly obscure Conquest Of The Crystal Palace, a groovy little platformer from Asmik, that had a dog you could set on your enemies long before next-gen Call Of Duties... :mrgreen:

Shadow Dancer has that as well ;)

Good game that Conquest one, good game - there's definitely more Famicom games I enjoy than NES games.

Overall on the NES I'd go with either PinBall (the flippers go invisible if you pass 100,000 points!) or Ufouria: The Saga (loved it so much I finished it first time I played it, when I was intending to just have a quick go to see what it was like).
