River City Ransom
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

River City Ransom was one of the staple games of my youth. I used to rent it continually until I found it new for $15 in 1991. After that, it barely left my NES. My friend Drew and I would spend most of our gaming time playing this game (and Skate or Die), and I […]

Pro Wrestling
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

Pro Wrestling is a game that I was introduced to at Loyal Heights Community Center, which is the place I went to spend the day during the summer when my parents were working. I was nine when I started going there, so I was still a little too young to be trusted by myself at […]

Renegade
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

Renegade was one of the first NES games I had, as my dad bought it for me at a low price ($10) from the owner of a video store. The man who regrets buying the system for me bought me games as well, though I believe he did that before he became regretful. In any […]

Dragon Warrior III
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

I received Dragon Warrior III as a gift back in the days when Nintendo games were still in the stores. I was an absolutely rabid fan of RPG’s at the time (which really hasn’t changed much), and considering how much I loved the previous two installments, I thought Dragon Warrior III could quite possibly be […]

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III: The Manhattan Project
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

I remember avoiding this game when I was younger, thinking that it was a cheap rip-off of the 2nd TMNT game. My avoidance ended during the summer of 1999 when I was on vacation in Seaside, Oregon. A store that sold a large assortment of miscellaneous things had a loose copy on sale for eight […]

8 Eyes
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

In a post-apocalyptic future, one king holds 8 jewels with magical spy phone powers. In the wrong hands, these http://spyappforcellphone.com/ jewels could destroy the world. So guess what? Yeah, the King’s 8 trusted advisors kill him and take the jewels. Now you must get them back and place them on the Altar of Peace, so […]

Little Samson
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

Looking back on the days of the NES, one might wonder why a game like Little Samson didn’t break through to the forefront of mainstream games that people are so nostalgic about today. Innovation seems to be deciding factor in which games are successful, and which games fall to the demise of the bargain bin. […]

Kickle Cubicle
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

What do earmuffs, plums, evil wizards, and kicking things have in common? The addictive puzzle game Kickle Cubicle, that’s what. Circa 1990, Tetris and Dr. Mario were causing headaches for the gaming public, and it’s unfortunate that Kickle Cubicle remains nearly forgotten. This unique puzzler made you think harder than those two aforementioned games, and […]

Shadowgate
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

As with many of the NES games I played, I was introduced to this game through renting it at Blockbuster. I remember playing this game into the wee hours of the morning, and getting goosebumps from the death theme. All these years later, that song can still give me goosebumps. I do have to wonder […]

Bionic Commando
( Games ->NES ->Reviews )

When I was younger, Bionic Commando was a game that I was either borrowing from friends or renting from Blockbuster frequently. I eventually bought a used copy of the game before my interest in the NES stalled out in the mid-’90s (and came back at the end of ’98). I always remember it as being […]
