Aside from the obvious, (Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Megaman) what's good on the NES?

I just got an Everdrive 64, and am pleasantly surprised to see it can emulate the NES. I was a PS1 kiddie, so I have no experience with 8 bit gaming.

My favorite NES game is probably Monster Party out of sheer absurdity. If including Famicom stuff tho then my favorite is Gimmick, which is definitely the better game.

OP, it would help if you were a bit more specific in what you were looking for. Did you want platformers? If so, Power Blade 1 and 2, Vice:Project Doom, Darkwing Duck, DuckTales 1 and 2, Batman, Gargoyles Quest 2, Kabuki Quantum Fighter, Shatterhand, Little Nemo, Metal Storm, Kirby's Adventure and Tiny Toons Adventures are all good. If you were looking for Arcade type action, there's always the Bomberman series, Gauntlet series, Marble Madness, Cobra Triangle, Paperboy series, R.C. Pro Am series, Skate or Die, or arcade ports like Joust, Rampage, or Rampart. If you want RPG's and want something besides FF or DQ/DW, there's Might and Magic, Crystalis, Wizardry, Ultima 4, and the graphical "macadventures" like The Uninvited, Shadowgate, and Deja Vu.

What is it you were looking for?

I don't know either, I never got into any of those games except Genghis Khan and I think Genghis Khan 2

they can get shallow if you really work hard at them I think? like, you find some fairly simple strategy that works pretty efficiently, and then just use it consistently... but that's standard for pretty much all single-player modes in war games

I had fun with it anyway, still remember the music

there are consistent strategies, but in genghis khan you can also change the difficulty level from easy to very hard.

it's just that nobunaga's ambition is the one that always gets brought up, so I was wondering how they compare.

I always liked the soundtrack to genghis khan, in fact I put it on youtube.
