Crash and the Boy's Street Challenge was a lot of fun.

Like konami's olympic button mash games but with art like river city ransom, and you could sabotage you're opponent in alot of the heads up challenges...


Simon's quest was awesome. I also liked Castlevania 3(i think) with Sypha, Grant and Alucard as aquirable characters...


Edit Clash at Demonhead was a very cool nintendo game with inventory and aquired skills, supersuits and weapons you used to explore the rather large game world like a funky metroid.

Excitebike=Building my own long and convoluted Track

Bionic Commando - way superior to the arcade version


Clash at Demonhead - it has a skeleton named Tom Guycott as one of the main bad guys.. what can I say?


Princess Tomato in the Salad Kingdom - nice little adventure game in the vein of Deja Vu


Sweet Home - sweet game. Fan translation.. horror/rpg which is creepier than Resident Evil, go figure.


Ice Climber - I loved the arcade game


Castlevania 2: Simons Quest - why dont they produce another Castlevania game like this?


Batman - I loved the music to this game


River City Ransom - damn, this game is so fun

........the memories.....anthropomorphic frog people whaling on eachother...

I had thought that some of nature's journeymen had made men and not made them well, for they imitated humanity so abominably. - Book of Counted Sorrows


'Cause I won't know the man that kills me

and I don't know these men I kill

but we all wind up on the same side

'cause ain't none of us doin' god's will.

I'll just name my top two:


Zelda II: I'm a big fan - very underrated game, which got less credit than it deserved for doing something new and adventurous instead of rehashing the same formula. Better RPG elements, larger and more complex gameworld, and incredible music.


Metroid: The sheer platforming fun of this game, for me, is virtually unparalleled. Some people prefer Super Metroid, but I prefer the original, for a few reasons: crisper, more clearly defined animations and none of those cheesy, grainy explosions every time you kill an enemy.
