Who still plays Nintendo?
« on: January 03, 2015, 09:54:13 PM »
So I sold my Nintendo back in '98... It was given to me on my 6th birthday in '90. In that time I accumulated a shit ton of games. They started out expensive, but by the time sega and super nes came out games were dirt cheap for nes. I found games at pawn shops and yard sells and friends that didn't want them anymore. Eventually I got a playstation and grand turismo. Nintendo was no longer cool to me. I sold all my shit for pennies.

Now I wish I hadn't done that... I have a friend that has let me borrow his nes a few times. I got to play Mario 3 the best game of all time! And the tmnt games! Mike Tyson's punch out and excite bike!

Today I stumbled upon something that made me freak out... I found Days of Thunder on Nintendo! I had no idea this game existed! I used to watch the movie everyday as a kid lol. Now I am forced to get a Nintendo again lol. I also picked up back to the future! So, who else still messes with these? And what games are essential? A few I miss are Mario, Mario 3, Zelda, skate or die, Friday the 13th, wwf steel cage challenge, double dragon and Simpsons to name a few.

My sister gave me her Nintendo back in the day.  Mario 1-3, donkey kong , duck hunt with gun, knight rider, top gun, Zelda...  I think that might be it.   I think they got sold, or maybe my sister has it.  Dunno.  Good times tho

Knight rider and top gun! That's awesome, I don't think I have seen either of those games. Emulators are cool, but the controls on a keyboard or tablet or iPhone is kinda awkward. I like playing it with the original controller. Haha blowing into cartridges or the Nintendo and having to wiggle the cartridges are all just part of the experience. Kids don't know what they missed out on now a days.

Excite bike! Ninja Turtles, yesss!!! I'd include Zelda and the Mega Man in there for "essentials" on NES but you have an awesome line up as it is.... I used to love console games growing up...

I agree "it's just not the same," but I am with crono with playing emulators haha. I love the gameplay without having to blow in any cartiages or wiping any CDs. That usb NES controler is pimp!

I rock a Sega Genesis Emulator at work to play Xmen Clone wars when I get bored :P

What emulators do you guys use? I'd like to expand my emulated console collection and this type of nastalgia is going to cause many to get the urge I'm having lol  8)

I've got 2 nes systems. Not a lot of games though - I used to trade constantly when I was a kid so the collection never got huge.

I also still have gameboy, sega, sega cd, n64, psp, multiple ps 1's, 2's and 3's. Save me. Had an xbox and 360 but got rid of both before they tanked (phew). The only thing I currently play is ps3, occasionally.

I often wonder why I've kept most of this junk. It sure doesn't seem to have gone up in value...
