Top 10 Best NES Games of All time

Aug 1, 2008
It's not easy coming up with the top 10 NES games of all time, but here is my best effort:

10) Duck Hunt - By far, it was the best shooting for the NES> It was the reason to have the Nintendo Zapper.

9) Ice Climber - It's a cult classic. I know it's not the most advanced gameplay ever concocted but it's still a blast to play, even to this day.

8) Metroid - Incredible atmosphere. The game offered a real challenge that always kept you going and was the beginning of an incredible franchise.

7) Zelda II: The Adventure of Link - This may be a bit controversial. I know the game is not loved by many Zelda fans. But if you give it a chance, you can see tha it's a real gem.

6) Castlevania - It's kind of a toss up to pick which Castlevania was the best. It may not be an easy decision but there is no doubt the original is a classic.

5) Tecmo Bowl - Not only the greatest sports game for the NES, you could make an argument that it's the greatest sports game in video game history. I'll take this over Madden any day.

4) Contra - The ultimate code. We all now it by heart and it was the best co-op game of the 1980s. It never got old and still holds up really well today.

3) Super Mario Bros - Where would the video game world be without this powerhouse? I remember how amazing it was when the character moved, the screen followed. You can't event think of the NES without this game.

2) The Legend of Zelda - It influenced countless other games. It was the first game to have its own battery backup. No more passwords to write down. You felt like you were actually inside the game.

1) Super Mario Bros. 3 - The swan song for the NES. It's the perfect bookend to the original Super Mario Bros.
