      Here are the games that contribuuted to my development as a kid

      Rush N Attack - No game influenced me more than this one. Seriously, and it taught me cooperation was necessary to kill commies in similar games like Guerilla War, Ikari Warriors, and Jackal which also contributed to my growth and eventual career choice.

      River City Ransom - Fighting, RPG abilities and skills building. Great concept.

      Super Dodgeball - After River City Ransom I got hooked on Technos Japan Corp. games.

      Nintendo World Cup Soccer - Another Technos game which I still play today. Worth checking out.

      Zelda - This was the third game I played for the NES. The first commercial was great. It taught me map reading and land navigation skills along with Dragon Warrior.

      Super Mario Bros. 3 - I mention this game because I owned it about a year before anyone in the US had it. I was the coolest kid in school for like 10 days. I also was able to use it as barter for my friends' best games when we borrowed each other's shit. ("Hey I'll give you SMB3 for a week for 3-D worldrunner, Super C, Strider, Metal Gear, and Double Dragon 2.") I had the Japanese famicom cartridge with an adapter that allowed it to be played on our NES long before the game was translated into English and release in the US.

      Good times with the old NES.

        Contra, Double Dragon, Super Mario Bros. (any three)
        Any of those friggin' sweet Disney ones:
        Chip N' Dale: Rescue Rangers, DuckTales, etc...

          The Disney Games were sweet! And really hard, well Ducktales and Chip 'n Dale were.

          The games that probably shaped my gaming the most would be Zelda, Mega man, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and Mario 1, 2, and 3.

          All of them great games!

                Shadowgate was a good one just coz of some of the stupid stuff it had like this one that seems a bit perverted.

                then this one that i like

                        Shadowgate used to give me a heart attack when my last torch was almost out and I didnt have any backups. The music that played when you died was cool

                          SMB 1&3, for some reason didnt go for SMB2 that much.
                          TMNT2, I have to admit I never beaten it or got close to but it just wasnt for me
                          Double Dragon, who doesnt like beating up gangs of bad guys.
                          Legend of Zelda, I have to agree too about the 2nd not being good.
                          Mission Impossible, sometimes I just played to hear the theme song :p
                          World Cup Soccer, reminded me of an old soccer cartoon (japanese I think)
                          Duck Hunt, the only gun game I had

                          the list goes on but unfortunately my NES fell to the floor and refuses to work. Since it is european I dont even know where to get it fixed which is unfortunate for me cause I plan to get it fixed.

                            I have also found the joy of playing old games via emulators

                            Favorite games, basically anything Super Mario. Also a big fan of the Duck Hunt game.. I owned that game I did. And Donkey Kong... so outdated now but I loved it. OHH also Pacman.

                              I can't believe no one else liked Metal Gear.

                              My favorite NES games when I was a kid:

                              Metal Gear
                              Bionic Commando
                              Chip N Dale: Rescue Rangers
                              Wizards & Warriors 1 & 2
                              Dragon Warrior
                              Super Mario Bros. 1 & 3 (I hated 2)
                              Mega Man 2 & 3
                              Rescue: The Embassy Mission
                              Who Framed Roger Rabbit
                              Maniac Mansion
                              Legend of Zelda II

                              I'm sure there are many more that I am forgetting, but Nintendo had so many awesome games!

                              It was always fun trading games with friends at school...

                                    My favourite NES game was 'The Flintstones: The Rescue of Dino & Hoppy'. I used to play it for hours at my friend Brad's house, when we went through our Flintstones-obsessed phase. Mmm... Fruity Pebbles.

                                          So funny! This (Maniac Mansion) was one of my favorite games... that and Bionic Commando. The funny part is that I never knew any friends who liked either of these games, but here on Retro Junk, a lot of you like those games. Where were all of you when I was a kid???
