    Best NES game of all time

    This is a poll, MY poll, and you can't add anything. There is no "other, please explain" option. I was the biggest loser here in the late 80's, so I and I alone am versed in the NES games. That being said, pick and defend please.

    I'm going to give the first vote to "Baseball Stars"...not only for it's gameplay, but for the fact that it was, to my knowledge, the first game that allowed you to manipulate variables such as names and earn and increase attributes in a sports game.

    I certainly won't argue with your list, but no one cares or ever did care about Super NES....Sega dominated the 16-bit market. On another note, I have not received due respect for importing the bananas to the ARFFL homepage...thou givest and thou can taketh away.

    That's all I ask for. By the way, I did a bit of statistical analysis of the upcoming games for the homepage breakdown. Of the final four, you have the lowest average over your last four games (183.5) but far and away the greatest consistency and least deviation from the average. Should be interesting.

    That is burried in my head. Plus I still remember how to get 99 men on level 2 in Super MB. and how to get out of the lost forrest in Zelda.

    We got my son a game cube for xmas and it came with the 4 pack of all the zelda games. Including the original one. So my xbox will be sitting for a while.

    Those numbers the Bad Bunnies put up last week kinda scared me but I didn't find his lineup to be to intimidating at all. Specially when I saw the head to head match up with me. I'm definitely not looking past to PN but I can see me in the finals. Well see

    True story....me and seven or so of my friends (i think we were seven or eight??) had a "league" where everyone picked one wrestler and kept them for the summer. We had feuds, alliances, betrayals....the works. We even made belts out of cardboard and such. There were two belts (the Deer Hollow belt...named after the neighborhood where we played most of the games...that was the championship belt and the Bear Meadow belt, named after the neighborhood were three of the group lived...that one was like the intercontinental belt). Those were some good times...i was "The Amazon" and used to bite the **** out of people's heads.

    **** that ****, we were the coolest. We did have some backyard wrestling too....we dug up my friend's mom's garden because it was in a fenced in square area that looked like a wrestling ring. Then we took all the cushions, pillows and mattresses out of his house to make our ring. We had the BEST time....needless to say, he was ****ed when his parents got home and saw their furniture laying in some churned up soil.

    Just an FYI, all the games you mentioned will cost you no more than 4 dollars at a game store, with the exception of Contra. Contra cost 13 dollars. I guess it's that popular. It is a great game. RR

    yes he's easy. you're either going to TKO him in the 3rd round or just win by decision. either way you better knock him down a few times and not get your face pummeled. you can get close to TKOing him in the 2nd round, but you gotta keep from gettin hit the entire round and get your licks in. most of the time you can get 2 knockdowns and the 3rd one is about to come but the bell rings.

    gotta be Zelda. I don't know why, but I loved that game above all others.

    Can't help but love Super Mario Bros.

    Baseball Stars was a great game that I think never got enough attention. It was great that you could make players stronger, faster, etc...

    Contra, Excite Bike, Metroid....all excellent games as well.

    Does anyone remember Robot Wars? I think that's right. It was the baseball robot game where you buy parts for them in order to improve them. That was another game that I don't think got the attention it deserved.

    Zelda still rules though.
