I hooked my NES back up today after I bought Blaster Master. Really brings back memories too. My NES and carts really need a good cleaning though. :(

Probably relive memories playing Zelda 1, Blaster Master, Jackal, Startropics 2 and whatever else during this trip down memory lane.

8-bit Theater is so cool! Funny funny stuff. I started reading them from the first and got to 59 so far. XD I need to play Final Fantasy 1-3 to say I've played all of them >_< except 11, that is.

I need a new NES... I found all my old carts, but the system is quite the dead.

-- That is why I luuuuuuurve emulation.

It's all about the original Super Mario Bros. No need for Super Mario All-Stars spiffying it up with backgrounds and rounder sprites, who needs it! ^_^ XD

I used to play Bases Loaded a lot when I was little, too.. and I recently introduced myself to a rom of Ice Climbers because of Super Smash Bros Melee. Ice Climbers is DAMN fun when I'm bored.

Wheeee there's also some RPGs I should check out on NES.. like the original Dragon Warrior and Final Fantasy games... I played like four minutes of FF 1-3. X_x; I've also played a bit of the first Zelda as a rom. *bouncey* Good stuff. 8-bit yummy.

You and a yo-yo. What more do you need in life? (A sword may have been helpful against those alien scum, but nooooooooooo all you get is a damn yo-yo.)

Actually you get a Swor dan dothe rintreting weapons depending on your time period in Startropics 2.

And I'm almost through the 1st quest of Zelda and I just started a new game late last night!

Tetris might be my all-time favorite game. When we first got the NES when I was 7, Dad and I would battle each other at Tetris for hours. It was great ^_^.

What else do I like? MappyLand (although I'm sure no one's ever played it here :P), Metroid, Dragon Warrior, SMB, and a thousand others I'm forgetting ^_^.

Mappyland! I love that game!

I wonder how much NES consoles would cost these days? Cheaper than the psx?

I went to Funcoland the other day and they were selling NES consoles for $49.. not too bad. ^_-

I still have mine back home in great condition! My favorite games were RIVER CITY RANSOM!, Bubble Bobble, and Metroid.. <3

Ah...memories. We mustn't forget the ultimate stress relief game: Duck Hunt. I spent many a long hour becoming a sharp-shooter and trying vainly to shoot that stupid laughing dog...>_<

...it's kinda sad, but the nearby Gamestop sells the 8-bit Nintendo Entertainment Systems for $49 here too, and yet the 128-bit SEGA Dreamcast is sold for $39. What a shame. u_u

NES is kinda more popular again. One the reasons I kept my NES was a 191-in-1 bootleg cart my parents gave me for a holiday years ago.

I still have my original NES, but I wouldn't go out and buy one if I didn't. There's more than enough emulators and roms out there.
