    Kid Icarus is a classic as is Kirby's adventure. The Nintendo was an 8bit machine and had it's share of awful games. But it also had some of the best games ever. It again shows game play over graphics as does the Wii today. While Ice Climber doesn't excite me at all, Kirby's Adventure and Kid Icarus do. It's been years since I've played either. Right now I have too many games to finish to worry about getting more VC games, Mario Sunshine, Metroid Prime 2, Zelda's second quest, Twilight Princess and Mario Kart Double Dash.

    I'm guessing you grew up with 64, not NES.

    And once again, of course you can have your own opinion. It just so happens that your opinion is wrong.

    Back then, you are forgetting the graphics were top notch, so it wasnt anything over anything. Both were best.Thats why people invented "****ing up some ones grandma in the mall to get SMB2". Ive never heard of women fighting in Kmart to get their kids a Coleco Vision or Intellivision. Playstation 2 didnt invent that.

    The thing about video games (and most things for that matter) is that one person's all-time favorite game might be another person's most hated game...

    Personally, I couldn't wait for them to release Kid Icarus...love that game. I also played the heck out of Ice Climber way back when. Kirby? Couldn't care less...

    Eventually, most of the games you want should come out. I'm trying to be patient for Super Metroid...sure, I could piss and moan about how it's not out yet, but I don't see that helping...

    Here are some bad-ass NES games we COULD have had:
    Metal Gear. Rescue the Embassy. Master Blaster. Tecmo Bowl (& super TB).
    Double Dragon I &II. Star Tropics. Dragon Warrior 1-80 FFantasy 1-50. Mega man 1-50. Metroid (duh). Wizards and Warriors. Gauntlet 1 & 2. Rygar. Bases Loaded. Blades of Steel. Double Dribble. Al Unser JR. Turbo Racing. wow Im so cool, I have to stop eventually. (shit, castlevania, paperboy, kungfoo shit!)

    Bases loaded is horrible (was great at it's time.) Another great game is Double Dragon and those Toads when they team up, it was quite a frustrating game, but still fun.


    If I don't know you, and if I don't talk to you on the forums, don't send me a friend request. I won't add you and will not give you an explanation.

    Especially when you're a little kid. I could see Icarus being your favorite game, just like Section-Z was one of mine when I was like 9, a game by most's standards, a piece of shit. All of my friends had their POS favs that I just didnt like. Its whatever games you happen to own obviously. Saving $40 for games was hard when you are a pre-teen.
