  2. Wow, a shooting across the street from me.  I was at work at the time.  Robbery apparently.  He didn't put the gun down when the cop ordered him to and he got shot.  Funny how that happens.  No life threatening wounds but a terminal case of stupid.

      Thanks Anthony.  If I notice a scuffle of any sort I'm staying indoors, period.  My renter was home but I think he slept through it!

      Glad to hear that no retro gamers were harmed in the making of this public service announcement.

  3. Yeeeeeeeah.  Got a new show for y'all.  "We got a dayum good show!"

  4. Final Fight CD Road Avenger Lunar games Popful Mail Silpheed Night Trap Sewer Shark Sonic CD
  5. The Jeopardy games are really well done on the NES! Although, even with the thousands of questions, they would eventually repeat and if you played enough you could memorize many of them. And if the computer screwed up (on the easier settings) you could see some letters of the correct answer, along with characters like *+=*&%, etc., to help you out. I would piss off other players because I would ring in IMMEDIATELY and I was quite likely to remember the answer (you had tons of time to put in your response).
  6. Well, I have a list started, with the first video coming out soon. #20: LIFE FORCE #19: BLASTER MASTER #18: KID ICARUS #17: RIVER CITY RANSOM #16: THE GOONIES II #15: THE GUARDIAN LEGEND #14: SUPER MARIO BROS. #13: TECMO SUPER BOWL #12: CASTLEVANIA III: DRACULA'S CURSE #11: ZELDA II: THE ADVENTURE OF LINK #10: CASTLEVANIA #9: MEGA MAN 3 #8: CONTRA After that-- boy, the remaining games I plan to put on my list are all stellar! It's gonna take me a while to figure out an order. I'm thinking Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!, Metroid, Zelda, Mega Man 2, Super Mario Bros. 2, Super Mario Bros. 3 and Ninja Gaiden somewhere among the rest.
  7. Same.  Old.  Clippers.

  8. Those who liked River City Ransom (and everybody really should) should check out some related NES/FC games with Alex/Kunio; Crash 'N The Boys, Technos Samurai (I LOVE this one!), a hockey game, a soccer game, a baseball game, and others; I believe all involve physically beating the crap out of your opponents (yay!).
  9. Woah! A happy happy birthday to the founder of this magnificent thread, Anthony! May all your wishes come true!
  10. That should be made into a calendar!
  11. I like that you listed Kid Niki.. I felt it was a good port, and it removed the annoying scream from the arcade bosses when you killed them. Plus, trying to find all the hidden bonus rooms was kind of fun (and if you found the floating ghost-thing it would let you take one hit without dying).
  12. The list of alternates for Wizards & Warriors and Zelda 2 (if I knocked them off the list) would be: DRAGON WARRIOR (haven't played any of the sequels) DUCK TALES BIONIC COMMANDO LIFE FORCE STAR TROPICS BUBBLE BOBBLE TETRIS GYRUSS TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES II- THE ARCADE GAME BATTLETOADS DOUBLE DRAGON II GOONIES II MENDEL PALACE Oh man.. that last one was definitely a blast. Weird game but oh, so much fun!
  13. Hey all, I'm going to be doing a series of YouTube videos on what I feel are the top 20 games for the NES. Since there are SO damn many great games for the system it is brutally hard to narrow it down to a top 20. I just kind of wanted to get a feel for what you fine people thought. I will have a nice long extra video before I get to #1 about some great honorable mentions. The ones I currently feel will definitely be on my top 20 list: LEGEND OF ZELDA ZELDA II- ADVENTURE OF LINK KID ICARUS MEGA MAN 2 MEGA MAN 3 SUPER MARIO BROS. SUPER MARIO BROS. 2 SUPER MARIO BROS. 3 CASTLEVANIA CASTLEVANIA 3- DRACULA'S CURSE MIKE TYSON'S PUNCH-OUT!! METROID THE GUARDIAN LEGEND TECMO SUPER BOWL KIRBY'S ADVENTURE BLASTER MASTER WIZARDS & WARRIORS RIVER CITY RANSOM That's my 20, but I haven't established a specific order yet. Any you think really should have been on the top 20? Ones that don't belong? There were several games that I feel are so close to being in the top 20 that just barely missed the cut.. What would be YOUR top 20? Thanks for the feedback in advance!
