Ah, yes, and a HUGE game library...too bad so many of them sucked...not all were bad though.

I didn't like when they had a glitch, and you'd have to take the cartridge out, blow on it, then put it back in and hold RESET.

Yes it is.

I remember having World Class Track Meet, you know, the one with that stupid pad that you use to run.
Ah, I remember that piece of crap...

*gets down on my knees and slaps the front two spots repeatedly with my hands*

...you leave it out, and your cats or dogs piss and sh*t all over it.

I remember owning those catridge containers for all my NES games, before me and my mom eventually ran into hard times and sold them off piece by piece. xD Biggest mistake I ever made, to be honest.

But I think the funniest moment I ever had as not thinking MegaMan was actually a series.

"Golly! Mega Man Vee? ... What's that supposed to mean?"
Awww, that sucks!

I remember "Hogan's Alley", with the Zapper.

I'll definitely thank Nintendo for saving video games. Before Nintendo, we had Amiga Commodore, or Coleco computers. Their games sucked so bad, it wasn't until further into the 1980's did Nintendo save video games...I think the AVGN did a lecture on that...

Musically, the Amiga and Commodore have more unique music in my opinion than the NES. It was pretty diverse.

But some NES music is good, though.

- "New Ghostbusters II" by HAL Studios (it sounds really Kirby-ish)
- "Jurassic Park"
- "Cheetahmen II"
- "King's Quest V" (particularly the town's theme)
- "Ghoul School" (main them was annoying, but the Music Room was good.)
Don't forget the other NES games with good themes:

Double Dragon 1 and 2
Castlevania
Time Lord
Zelda
Zelda 2
1943
Rescue Rangers (Chip and Dale)
Adventures in Magic Kingdom
Contra
Super Mario Bros 1,2, and 3

...holy crap, someone remembers Time Lord? xD



How do you pass the medeival stage in that game? I seriously can't figure it out. I know I have to collect orbs, but some are just unreachable! I usually get 3 of the 5 of them or something, and I can't pass it. :/

How could I forget Time Lord?

Well, to pass the medieval level, you gotta sometimes do a super jump to get the orb at the top tower of that castle, or collect the growing flowers on the green top of the castle walls to get an orb to appear...youtube has lotsa walk-throughs to show it. I myself never got past the Western Stage, 'cause I couldn't reach this one stupid Orb that hung outta reach when you walked up to it, and came down when you walked away from it.

The World War 2 and Pirate Ship levels had the best themes.
