Strictly original, blowing into the cartridge & smashing the system to get the game to work.

Sorry man - I can't get with this. I do think it's better then the history books give it credit for esp for a 16 year old kid who had a Nintendo Power subscription. But the critics were right about the poor translation within the game. The game was imposable without outside help. The "translation" from the Japanese version of the game of Major Information/Hints were just awful. Considering how popular Nintendo was at the time I can't believe that some beta tester didn't speak up/wasn't listened too on how bad of a game the translation of the hints made this game.

A cult classic. My only issue with it was how long it took to beat. The one major underground maze (I think it was in Brazil if I remember right?) drove me crazy.

Still my favorite Castlevania game not named SOTN.

Best soundtrack/theme music on the NESI'd like to mend this and say the music from Metroid and Kid Icarus are tied with this one.

I really liked Kid Icarus. In fact I think it's strange that it really hasn't gotten a major reboot yet. I remember hearing when they were making OOT for Zelda and the first 3D Metroid how "excited" I was. I think a Kid Icarus 3d world would be great and I think there would be a market for it. Can you imagine all the cool Greek Mythology bad guys they could have?

They re-released a 3-D version for the 3DS but I beat it with it turned off.

I'm talking about a "real" re-boot not a 3DS. Something with the size and scope of Twilight Princess on the WII. Bow and Arrow with the Wii would be awesome.

Yea I know. They did release one last year but it was essentially a shooter. Personally I just want a Kid Icarus 2 but side (and vertical) scrolling just like the first one, but with re-visitable areas and HD graphics. Same game play with more RPG.

You idea sounds great but we both know they'd just botch it.

I was about 8 or 9 when that game came out and I loved it. It was open ended and dark, which was cool. It was a tough game, but I beat it. I don't recall if I used Nintendo Power or not. It may have has flaws, but it was a classic.

Can't believe RBI baseball has been so overlooked.
This. By far my favorite game. I also loved Baseball Simulator 1.000 but that's because it's the first sports game I can remember playing that was customizable (i.e. player names, skill attributes, etc.). Loved them both.

I have a NES at my parents beach house with a ton of games and this is one of them I tend to fire up once a year. There is a part about 10 minutes in that I don't remember what to do and I get stuck and just quit.

I beat it years ago but just have been too lazy to wiki or youtube it.

What was the game where you are a sniper? Loved that one too.
Was it called Rescue or am I thinking of a different game?I also loved Chip and Dales Resue Rangers. **** Tracy was good too.

Never mind, the #### Tracy I liked was for Genesis..

Gauntlet. Greatest arcade game ever, and while the Nintendo version was subpar, it was still tons of fun.
The NES Gauntlet was superior to the Arcade version to me. Unlike the arcade version it had RPG like elements and and actual final boss and ending.

This is one of the few games I could not beat.
