Cool series of articles at 1Up all week long on the 20th anniversary of the Nintendo Entertainment System.  Article here.

What were your favorite NES games?  Any hidden treasures that didn't get a lot of attention?

Dragon Warrior I, Karnov, Duck Tales, the list goes on . . . and on . . . and on.  Oh, and Zelda II.  BELIEVE IT!

The NES is undoubtedly my favorite gaming system.  I wasted, er.. enjoyed so many hundreds, maybe even into the thousands, of hours of my childhood on that system.  So many fond memories.  Castlevania 2 was my favorite game on that system.  20 years?! Wow time flies.

How is it that Pro Wrestling is not on that list of best titles?

And Metroid a missed gem?  Gah!  That game was legendary...of course the codes to continue made me want to eat my own eyes...but still.

It was this moment that took the movie from being a little ho-hum to “holy shit, did that shark just eat a plane!?”

That was a fun series there.  A lot of nostalgia.  Glad I'm not crazy having seen some of those overlooked gems on the list.  I loved my NES more than I will ever love another console.  As much as I hate to admit it, I certainly don't enjoy gaming like I did back then.  Thanks for the look back!

Ahh... Zelda, Zelda, and Zelda (1, that is)  - started my video gaming life, really.  I had little experience with anything else until I picked up a NES  because I read about it in Newsweek! To this day, the first Zelda is one of my all-time favorite and most-played-over games.

And Zelda 2, Bubble Bobble, Marble Madness, Wizardry, RAD RACER!!! omg, the memories...

And why the heck did they say Dr. Mario was "shameless?" It's an incredible game, it was totally addicting, and I still play it today - I also still play the original Tengen Tetris, and they are totally different, totally fantastic games!  :evil:

Bubble Bobble is so damn great, my Grandparents had a Nintendo in their basement and actually had this game.  I wouldnt even want to guess how many hours my brother and I put into that game passing time over there.  And Karnov, oh that was a fun one.  I actually beat that game on the NES.  I remember going to bed with the music ringing in my ears.  Great feature.  Makes me want to shed a tear of joy.

I agree with mytocles.  Dr. Mario is awesome!

It used the same basic idea of Tetris but changed it enough to make it its own game.  They both feature falling colored blocks but go about it in different ways.  I'd argue Sega's "Columns" was more of a Tetris ripoff, but I enjoyed it a great deal on its one merits.

And yes, the Tengen Tetris was a great game.  I always liked that and Klax as well.
