Hmm..my NES medals of honor were:

Super Mario Bros. (of course) everyone cut their teeth on that.

Double Dribble

Tecmobowl (one of the best franchises ever). Bo Jackson and Thurman Thomas were unstoppable.

Bases Loaded (better than RBI Baseball imo)

Zelda...duh

Afterburner (the real arcade game was sweeeet)

Excitebike

Mike Tyson's Punchout

My favorite NES game has to be Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! It took me forever to be good enough to beat it, but now I can turn it on after 2 years of it being on the shelf and go 13-0 with 13 KO's.

I liked all the Mario Bros. games, Battletoads was money too. I found that game to be really challenging as well. It is fun to try to do the entire speeder section of level 3 without looking at the screen. I almost did it one time but I bit it on the section where there are no ramps...I should try that again sometime.

Man I gott chime in here...NES was the bomb back in the day. Me and a buddy would rent games from a local video store every weekend.

Some of my favs...Mike Tyson's Punch Out, Contra, all the Dragon Warriors, all the Final Fantasies, Super Mario 2 and 3 were pretty cool, Legendary Wings, I could go on and on.

Bringin' back some good memories. ;-D

I used to drive my old man nuts with that game when we figured out the Player 2 controller would control the duck.... Hehehehehe...

Only video game besides Links Golf on PC I could ever get the old man to play...

I definately loved Mario. Then I always played Bases Loaded II like all day long. There was also a soccor game I remember, they were like munchkins kicking a ball around. And Ice Hockey, I loved it even with the horrible sound effects. I wish I never sold it.... I still have my SNES though ;-D
