    NES games exist? including/excluding unlicensed cartridges.

    [i would use google more, but at work they filter the word 'nintendo' and 'game(s)']

    thanks!

    Nintendo's PDF list of official titles includes about 700 games.

    I'd think either the DS or GBA SP.

    GBA SP- GB, GBC, GBA.
    DS- GBA, DS.

    Probably say SP as it plays games from 20 years ago *jesus, that just sunk in*.

    bingo. that is a lot of games. now if the Wii has some sort of GB/GBA port... we'd have a winner.

    No way DS, it's only been out a year and a half.

    I'd say PS2 or GBA. Do backwards-compatible titles count? Because between GB, GBC, and GBA, the library is MASSIVE.

    Then there's my SNES with a Super GameBoy.

    I'd vote PS2 has the most games. For every good PS2 game there's like 3 crappy ones you never hear about.

    I vote for the C64 :cool:

    [EDIT] Sources talk about 17.000 official games, not counting those that were done by hobby programmers. Beat that!

    Well he mentioned the DS because of GBA compatibility...

    but yeah DS games does not equal GBC+GB games.

    hmm, I think if we are including public domain/hobby games then the Amiga would wipe the floor with anything else. heck, I was 7 and released a couple of games. alright to a local game shop with no money involved at all but still.

    Spectrum? that had a big following too. though probably not as C64 or Amiga.
