Being 20 years old, the Nintendo Entertainment System or NES is a perfect replica of many hours I spent as a child. I personally no longer have the NES - but I do have the newer FC Twin system that plays both NES and SNES games.
As I recall growing up my all time favorite game was Zelda. But I did love Final Fantasy. What about you guys? Favorite games? Did you like the console? Memories/complaints?
Still have your game collection? I am on a frantic hunt for games across the internet now.

I used to rent all of mine, or I played on other people's systems. I only owned the NES. I did like Ninja Gaidan 2 back in the day, as well as Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World for the SNES. Zelda was confusing for me because the rental place wasn't kind enough to keep the map handy. Someone gave me a used Ice Hockey game one time, but I didn't like it, so I gave it back. The only cartridge I ever owned was the two-fold Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt that came with the system.

Storm the Gates, they do have Zelda on the wii...or it was gamecube. me and my brother bought a whole collection of Zelda games, from the arcade game to the new one that came out on the wii called Twilight Princess.
I grew up in the 80s so I definitely remember the NES. Some of my favorite games were: Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt, Double Dragon, Willow, Donkey Kong 3, Mike Tyson's Punch Out. There were SO many fun games back then....I also played Zelda but never got into like my brothers did. I never beat it..but of course I never really beat any of those older games.
By the way, is it just me or did those older games seem much harder to beat than the modern ones? I don't know.
Also for anyone interested, there is a website where you can play a lot of the old NES games for free. you don't even need to download any software. All you need is a java browser it is www.virtualnes.com. Check it out!
