Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Top 5 NES Games

I'm feeling kind of nostalgic right now, so what are your top 5 NES games.   Here are mine in no particular order:

1.)  Megaman II


2.)  The Legend of Zelda


3.)  Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II


4.)  Super Mario Bros. 3 (had to edit because it is such an important game)

5.)  1943 (one of the hardest games I've played, have yet to beat it without Game Genie)

I wanted to put FF on the list but I'll just give it an honorable mention because the first time I played it was actually on FF: Origins for the PSX.

1) Super Mario Bros. 3
2) Contra
3) Tecmo Super Bowl
4) Double Dragon
5) Blades of Steel or Ice Hockey (toss up on this one)

Those are the games I had the most fun playing.  I would probably put Super Mario Bros. 1 and a few others on the list for what it did for Nintendo but I went with pure fun factor.  I also wanted to give a shout out to Arch Rivals.

I don't like Zelda 1, Metroid, or the first Mario; I find them kind of annoying to play. Although some games I would have liked to put on my list are Street Gangs, Castlevania 3, Dragon Quest 2, or Final Fantasy - I like all of those games.

Ah shit!  Back when I used to be able to watch wrestling.  I thought you were talking about WWF WrestleMania for a sec though which is the main wrestling game I had on NES.
