    Love me some Kid Icarus, still run through it every other year or so.

    Loved Faxanadu growing up too. Must have beaten it 20 times as a kid.

    I'd probably have to say Rad Racer.

    That's an impossible question. First games that come to mind are Blaster Master, Kid Icarus, and Super Mario Bros. 3.

    Probably one of the most influential games for me. Still remember being fascinated by it as a kid. Still does to this day.

    The wwf wrestling game and Kung fu got the most play growing up when we were kids. Didn't have a lot of games either. The price for games is comparable today to back in the day. Kinda makes you think.

    IMO Tecmo World Wrestling was the goat NES wrestling game with Pro Wrestling as a close second. I never owned it, but I used to rent it all of the time. The WCW game was fun as well.
