Best Games for the Old School Nintendo NES

20 items ranked

Remember when video games were simple? Players could only move up and down or forward and back. There were no multiple dimensions and he graphics were boxy and unrealistic? Ah, the good old days!

Super Mario Brothers Report Abuse
This game was amazingly addictive. I spent hours and hours playing it during my childhood. Fireballs, flying turtles, man-eating plants, secret warp zones. This game really started it all.

The Legend of Zelda Report Abuse
This classic fantasy action game spawned what is probably the biggest video game series ever.

Super Mario Brothers 3 Report Abuse
Does anyone remember the movie The Wizard, staring a young Fred Savage? This movie was actually a thinly veiled 90 minute commercial for Super Mario Brothers 3. This game was so exciting when it came out ... you went from point to point along a board game like map gathering various powers, matching cards, getting stars, and battling your way through huge flying ships. Awesome.

Tetris Report Abuse
Ah, Tetris. Who doesn't want to spend hours on end making random shapes fit together while listening to Russian inspired music? Classic.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Report Abuse
Even if you weren't a fan of the cartoon, this game was super fun. Each turtle had their own distinct fight style ... I preferred Donatello.

Metroid Report Abuse
I wasn't a HUGE fan of this game, but it's the first game that I remember than had the ability to save your game using a password. High tech, no?

Super Mario Brothers 2 Report Abuse
While this game isn't quite as fun to play as Super Mario Brothers 1 and 3, Super Mario Brothers 2 did have some things going for it. First, you could choose your character. Second, there was the opportunity to ride on a flying carpet. And third, it was pretty damned trippy to look at.
