Easily Nintendo's best first-party games ever.

>> No.5286841

Yeah it's totally the best console ever, Nintendo never recovered and neither did its competition. Also, thanks to Nintendo we can still play video games to this very day and play actual video games instead of cinematic non-games and have so much innovation that we never aske-, I'm sorry I mean, we never expected. It's not like there have been dozens of other consoles since then that have libraries that are just as vast if not vaster (even when I limit myself to pre 2000 ones) and are a lot less annoying to play through. No, Nintendo knew how to make challenging games and it's only become easier and too casual for real gamers. No no no, you're not a poser or a hipster when you say you like the NES specifically, it can only mean you've played it since the 80s and appreciate how truly revolutionary it was.

So, is that enough circlejerking for you guys or would you like some more sarcasm?

Hell I was born in 1987 and all I had was the NES until I got a little older. Many of my friends were the same way. I got my SNES for Christmas in 1994 and it certainly felt like I grew up with the NES. It was still officially supported with new games until 1994 and I remember renting Mega Man 6 and Wario's Woods when hey were new.

I'm 29 years old and have a brother 7 years older than me. My parents weren't rich so they always waited until consoles were at their end of life on discounts to buy them. My first games were Super Mario Bros, Tetris, and Duck Hunt. We didn't get an SNES until like 1994, so it was all-NES all the time until then, and we even still played NES sometimes after we got the SNES. Shut your dick hole, zoomer.

When all I knew was the PSX and the N64, I made a friend in the neighbourhood I moved to (this was in 1998) who had a NES. I have fond memories of Saturday mornings spent watching Pokémon and then heading to his place to play Ninja Turtles II in two-player mode.

TurboGraphx 16. Kinda unfair as we only got a fraction of it's PC Engine library. Same deal with Sega Saturn.

However, the Dreamcast rocks a great library with very little filler and nonsense.

>> No.5290793

Splitting a system's library based on region seems pointless, but you'd be right about the TurboGrafx is you did, though I'd argue it would only hurt the Saturn's case considering how many of it's titles were stuck in Japan. Dreamcast had more than it's fair share of lazy ports, poorly made licensed trash, and mediocre sports games that I'd count as shovelware. I'll never understand the "Dreamcast had no bad games" meme that people like babbage's Gramps likes to push.

You can't play Comix Zone on that, though. jokes aside, NES was objectively a fine system with plenty of good games, the problem is that there was way too much movie licensed shit dumped by debatable software houses, perhaps only 1% of which redeems itself by being actually good. Some other games were shit too but beneath all this manure there was plenty of outstanding titles

I always judge platforms by the number of good games they have rather than the percentage of games that were good. I think today the NES/Famicom has over 200 games that I could comfortably recommend as being worth playing.

Same one you replied to; you're right (that is if you used the word "shit" only to loosely describe the amount of games and not in the derogatory sense of the term). Lately i'm looking into it and it's way more stocked than i thought it would be, with games that are actually solid and fully playable, with still some exceptions but way less than the US comparison.
