    Tonight, I bought the system I should never have sold in the first place. The glorious Nintendo Entertainment System. The games I bought included Super Mario/Duck Hunt, Excite Bike, and The Empire Strikes Back. What other games do you recommend I get?

    Mario 3, Mega Man (any), Ninja Gaiden(any), TMNT II and Metroid were all good.

    The orignal Zelda. Bionic Commando. Any Contra game. Any Castlevania(SP?) game. Kid Icarus is also another fun one. As well as those mentioned above.

    Yes, the original Zelda is certainly one you should get.

    Good luck on ESB. If you can get beyond Luke's encounter with Vader on Dagobah, then you're either very lucky or damn good.

    Mario Kart, because it respected the mighty Koopa, unlike the N64 version. Everyone loved Koopa.

    1. He said he wanted good NES games, Not SNES.

    2. DarthMak already stated that he picked up Mario/ Duck Hunt.

    No problem, DUM-4. I can remember most of the games that I owned on my NES. My brother has them all now, unfortunately.

    In addition to games previously mentioned, I'd say get Tecmo Super Bowl.
