    Well, I was playing around on the modded xbox last night with some old games. I also did a search here but didn't find this post already.

    What was your favorite NES game?

    Mine was Super Dodge Ball. I played that game so much. Sam was great. So was the bald guy. In fact, that's the only cartridge I have left from the nintendo I sold when the SNES came out. I always kept it becuase it was my favorite.

    Super Mario Bros or The Legend of Zelda both stick out in my mind as being completely amazing at the time.

    My older brother an I actually wore out a Super Mario Bros. 3 cartridge. The cartridge no longer worked, the system was fine just no more SMB3. I actually took the cartridge apart and got a few more weeks out of it. But it's the only game I ever saw that happen to.

    Super Mario Bros. 3. Although I also recently found Boulder Dash, and am re-loving that all over again.

    Favorite NES game (and favorite video game ever, for that matter) - RBI Baseball.

    Tecmo Bowl comes in second as well as Super Mario 3.

    Excite Bike. I loved that game. :D

    Bubble Bobble was one of the best games ever. The famicon version wasn't so great IMO. Played the life out of the C64 version.

    Contra was definitely my favorite game on the NES. I've yet to find a shooter game that is as much fun to play with 2 players co-op. There was a baseball game that I'd play for hours with my brother as well, but I can't remember which :confused:

    Mario 3, Punch out, Dragon warrior and Zelda 1 were so awesome! If i had to pick one tho it would be Mario 3. Out of all the toys i had when i was younger thats the only one i still remember begging for and then getting it the day it came out at toys r us. I remember running into the store and grabbing the little slip of paper and having to take it up to the cage to get the game. Man that rocked!!

    That would be impossible for me to say #1 favorite. Though if I were to only have 1 game it would probably be Nintendo's Tetris because it had tremendous replay value.

    TMNT, Super Mario Bros. 3, Bubble Bobble, but most of all..

    DEMON SWORD.

    I'll admit that Super Volleyball is really fun... but for some reason it took me forever to become any good at all at it.
