    Those old platform style games were the best! icon_wink.gif
    I still run through a few on my emulator when I get bored (i.e. Mega Man series).
    Any favorites?

    I got one when I was about 5 or 6 and I of course loved Super Mario/Duck Hunt and this game called Joust. I liked Super Mario 3, Duck Tales and Double Dragon from what I remember.

    After a while the NES started acting up and we had to reset it a million times and blowing in the cartridges to play a game lol. I didn't play it much after we got a SNES.

    I sorta grew up with one. I more of grew up in the SNES era, but my older brothers had an NES which I played alot. Zelda was of course the cream of the drop, as was the Double Dragon series, and there was this kung-fu side scrolling game (a bit like Mario) which was hella fun...

    I still have a working NES with a working Contra, Super C. Super Mario Bros 3, Battletoads and Castlevania. Unfortunately my Double Dragon gave out. Also, Mega Man was released as a compilation on the PS2 so I dont own them on the NES. So much nostalgia.

    My copies of Dragon Warrior (1-4) and Ninja Gaiden dont work anymore though.icon_neutral.gif

    When we first got it, I tried getting past that first screen in Super Mario Bros. with those 2 brown things walking sideways. Every fucking time I would jump into them and die. Every fucking time!! Could not get past that part and I'd rage out and whip the controller on the ground.

    I stopped playing games and took a co-pilot role. I held the map when my brother and mom played Zelda. I watched my brother play contra and Ninja Gaiden. The only games I liked playing myself were Gyromite and Bubble Bobble.

    Of course we started with Atari. You wouldn't believe how anyone could enjoy games that basic.
