So what's your favorite Nintendo console game?

I've recently resurrected my game boy and am going crazy for tetris. It is the best game ever.

Nothing beats the trippy 'Rainbow Road' on Super Mario Karts. Try completing that when you're on acid... sheesh! [Smile]

Or the super high speed F-Zero X version [thumbsup]

Though I'd personally go with Kuru Kuru Kururin. I still haven't beaten that game [shake head]

Favourite gameboy game: Legend of Zelda.
Favourite NES game: There's lots. Either Tetris, Adventures of Link, Final Fantasy 1, Marble Madness, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, or The Castlevania series.
Favourite SNES game: Earthbound, or Final Fantasy 3, or Illusion of Gaia, or Chrono Trigger (I like my RPGs)
Favourite N64 game: Mario Party series.
Favourite GC game: Don't have one.

While I'm at it.. [Wink]

Favourite Turbo Grafx 16 game: Devil's Crush
Favourite Sega Genesis game: Sonic the Hedgehog 2.
Favourite Playstation 1 game: Final Fantasy 9.
Favourite Playstation 2 game: Final Fantasy 10.

I haven't bought FF11 yet, so it might take over for favourite Playstation 2 game.

I'm quite a fan of the FF series. I own all of them except FFX2 and FF11, including FF1 on NES, FF2 & 3 on SNES, FF7, 8, 9 on PS1 and 10 on PS2.

4, 5, and 6 were japanese releases only.. well.. sorta.

FF1 = same in Japan and North America.
FF2 = 2 in japan, never released in NA.
FF3 = 3 in japan, never released in NA.
FF4 = 4 in japan, 2 in NA
FF5 = 5 in japan, never released in NA.
FF6 = 6 in japan, 3 in NA.
FF7 through FF11 are all the same in both places.

Oh, and favourite Atari game: Space Invaders or Tankwars or whatever that one was called.

Okay, so I'm lame... but my favorite NES game is Super Mario Bros. 3.

Yoshi was a fun game, too... although obviously a Tetris rip-off.

And I spent hours and hours playing Monopoly on the NES. What a great idea, all the fun of the classic game of Monopoly, without the hassle of keeping all your money and properties sorted and in order. And the computer players were all chumps!

Oh, I'm sorry. The correct answer is MEGA MAN 2. Thanks for playing though.

[Big Grin] Speaking of NES, I just bought a complete NES with controllers, orange gun, complete with papers,warranty card, Nintendo Power subscription card, poster, and Tetris 2 which was still wrapped in the plastic, origional RF connector and power supply and a SNES with controllers and power supply for $25 from a yard sale. Now how sweet is that? My favorite NES games are Contra and Super Mario 3. [Smile]
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on July 27, 2004, 11:06:
 
That's a pretty sweet deal. I paid $200 CAD for my NES recently with approximately 50 different games (about 10 of them being rarities that are actually worth money: Tetris, SMB 2 & 3, Final Fantasy 1, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, Legend of Zelda, Castlevania 1, 2, and 3, etc.)

A little bit of coin, but I think it was well worth it.

I intend on building a collection of every console from the Atari up to the PS/2.

I'm actually in the rare minority that liked super mario 2... how could you not like uprooting radishes and jumping into strange clay pots with brown masks chasing you?

My second vote goes for Street Fighter II. Words cannot describe this illustrious game.
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on July 28, 2004, 05:25:
 
SMB 2 is pretty sweet. Nothing like stealing a key and having a crazy face chase you around.

The Street Fighter games are awesome too. I have SF2 turbo sitting in a box somewhere.
 
Posted by angryjungman (Member # 2434) on July 28, 2004, 05:34:
 
Wow, this thread is bringing back memeories. My fave games were the Castlevania series, the first Legend of Zelda, Contra, Double Dragon, and the Mega Man series. I also kicked some ass at Street Fighter 2.
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on July 28, 2004, 08:10:
 
I have most of my fav NES games again. Still gotta get Marble Madness and Contra.
 
Posted by Flashfire (Member # 2616) on July 28, 2004, 20:55:
 
Oh boy, too many to name...

If I had to choose a favorite, it would be have to be the original Tetris, just for the sheer amount of hours I put into that game.

Super Mario Brothers 2 and 3 were also high on the list.

On the SNES, it was a toss up between Actraiser (weirdest combination of sim and action game you'd ever see, but it worked), Gradius, and Castlevania. I used to stay up until midnight playing them.

Yeah, those were the days. [Smile]
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on July 29, 2004, 05:26:
 
Those were the days? Would it be a bad time to admit that I still do that now? [Big Grin]
 
Posted by Patch (Member # 2871) on August 03, 2004, 09:33:
 
Double Dragon was great!
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on August 03, 2004, 10:27:
 
I saw Fester's Quest at the local market the other day, but having spent all of my money by the time I got there, I was SOL.

Perhaps I'll make the venture out there again next weekend.

Sorry, I'm a Sega fan.

I still have my Genesis and a dozen games for it.

My favorite games for it are Mortal Kombat and Sonic the Hedgehog (the original, the one that came with the system, marked "Not for resale")

i always loved Chrono Trigger, Beat that game so many time. it's unreal.

Sadly, I own that game, but I haven't had time to sit down and beat it. I'm sure I will one day.

Haven't had time? You can knock out that whole game a quick 24 once you have "new game +". I've only beaten it the first time once, and I stretch to think that it might take 40 hours to beat. Then after you beat it the first time, you can beat it the second time in an hour!
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on August 05, 2004, 06:28:
 
Still, I don't have 1 hour to spare for video games at the moment, much less 40. I'd like to though, it's so peaceful to just sit in front of a screen and kill things. [Big Grin]

I agree. Tetris can keep me busy for many an hour even today.

Ahhh the zen of Tetris. For some reason, I am able to tune out everything else when I play Tetris. It's like I'm in the zone. I have a friend and we would play against each other all the time. He would try talking to me, tell jokes, make noises, fart, etc. anything to distract me. It never worked, I always whooped his tail. It was so funny because no one else could ever beat him, but I always could. My all time favorite game as well.

For you Contra fans out there
Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, A, B, Start...

The entire Zelda Series to current,,, I play "A Link To the Past on my self made (put two broken ones together, what can i say i like to fix things) GBA SP.

I also enjoyed SMB 1-3, Jackal, Strider, Cobra Command, Bionic Comando, All the mega man series especially 2.

Don' t have a lot of time to play thesedays, currently ensconsed in Crystal Chronicals and Zelda: Four Sword Adventures....
 
Posted by Spoongirl (Member # 2143) on August 28, 2004, 06:26:
 
On my SNES I own the most fantastical games in the whole world ever - "Secret of Mana" and "Illusion of Time". The last one being the only videogame (apart from FFVIII, obvs) to make me cry. And, also, is it the same as Illusion of Gaia, coz there's a Gaia-dude in the save space.

Whooo for retro games!

Ooh, ooh, also, Tetris owns. And also Zelda - Link's Awakening being the most rocking monkey of all the Zeldas.

Hurray for threads on games!

Best classic NES games for me was Super Mario 3 and also Contra. w00t [Big Grin]

Illusion of Gaia and Secret of Mana were both EXCELLENT games.

No one has yet mentioned Earthbound (I think), which I thought was an excellent SNES game aswell.
 
Posted by Spoongirl (Member # 2143) on September 15, 2004, 12:57:
 
So it is the same game then? [Confused]
 
Posted by SimpleMan (Member # 2860) on September 29, 2004, 07:32:
 
ok, I have one for you...does anyone remember the game show hosted by Alex in the 80's called Classic Concentration? I also liked that game for the NES. I am not sure why...it was basically a memory game and then you would have to guess the puzzle that was revealed. If you won the bonus round you could even win a car....a virtual NES car anyway. Anyone want the 1984 Chevy Chevette that I just won? [Big Grin]
 
Posted by drunkennewfiemidget (Member # 2814) on September 29, 2004, 07:37:
 
Yes! That game was awesome!

I won a 1990 Ford Tempo. I'll trade you!

I also liked the other gameshow NES games.
Jeopardy, Win Lose or Draw, etc.

I've never actually owned any consoles to play games on. But i used to play my friend's ones all the time.

Nintendo- Mario Cart- especially on rainbow road [Big Grin] , i liked Yoshi aswell

Gamecube- Soulcaliber II (? i think it's 2)That's great, just kicking the crap out of my friend Kate, but she plays it all the time & knows all of the special kicks and stuff, so she has an unfair advantage over me. I make up with it with brute force & ingorance, no finess involved

SM3. No question. Duck Hunt was OK - not that it was a great game, but it was a fresh idea. And I still stay awake at night sometimes, wondering how the gun worked. I should look it up sometime.

SMB3 was my favorite. I could sit for hours and play that.

Currently I'm trying out GTA SA to see if I like it or not. Don't really care for the Sims-twist that RockStar has put on it.

I can help you on the "how the gun worked" - one only have to know how a tv work: lines and lines of pixels lighting up many times a seconds. Then add a little gun with a light-catching device. By calculating the exact time the device "sees" the light from the screen, the game knows where the gun is pointing on the screen.

Now, point the gun to another source of light (like a standard ceiling light fixture, lighted up of course), "fire" quickly, and you will hit the duck just the same 2 out of 3 times. I wasn't a very good shooter, you see! [Big Grin]

The Zelda games are classic.
Having purchased my GBA SP, I've been playing Donkey Kong Country a lot...(even though it was originally for the SNES...and I beat it in fourth grade...) I love it. But...then again....I love most video game genres....
Yay diversity.

Seriously. SMB2 was my favorite, mostly because you could play as practically anybody. (I tended to favor Luigi or Toad when I was a wee Moz.)

Contra 2 is a big favorite of mine, too, as well as Fester's Quest, and the Tiny Toon Adventures game. (Hey, I was six. Fight me.) I wasted many a long afternoon on Dr. Mario, and Tetris of course.

Luckily for me, my NES is still operational, so I can continue to feed the addiction. [Big Grin]
