For me: Simon's Quest, Golgo 13, Mega Man 2, Final Fantasy, Nobunaga's Ambition, Zelda, Super Mario, and Metroid.

Oh yeah Nobunaga’s Ambition , loved that game and believe I still have that one.

jznrpg85d ago (Edited 85d ago )

Zelda, Faxanadu, Castlevania 1, Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior, Gradius, Blaster Master, Commando(I was so mad when I finally made it past level 99 and it reset to level 1 instead of having an ending wtf!) Contra,Metroid, Pro Wrestling and Tag Team Wrestling tied for me both were lots of fun. Those are just some of my favorite games off the top of my head.

NES games were all I got for birthdays Christmas etc once I got the NES for early Christmas/Birthday present 1986 or was it 85 man I’m getting old . Me and my brother begged our dad for months when we heard it was coming out to get it for us and to give it to us early. 199$ was a lot back then. I didn’t know it then but we got one of the very first consoles in the entire country because we lived in Los Angeles and we got it at release. This was before they locked up games but after the NES came out they started locking them up a few months later.

Faxanadu was a ton of fun.

16 Underrated NES Games

There are tons of great games that have been overlooked in the mass of more popular titles. And I don’t just mean underrated games, either. We’re talking about grossly underrated and underappreciated titles in otherwise well-regarded franchises.

FINALLY someone who acknowledges the greatness of Gremlins 2 NES!! One of my favorite movie tie-in games of all times. I have fond memories of both the game and the movie from when I was a kid. I was playing it again just a couple of months ago, and it still holds up very, very well!

I rarely see people mention Gremlins 2 when discussing great NES games and I love you for that!

*edit - Sunsoft really was a fantastic studio. Another favorite, underrated late NES game from them was Batman Return of the Joker. It was so much better than the SNES version too. Something about it died in the effort towards upgrading the graphics and music. The NES version felt darker, moodier.

Thanks for reading. Always nice to encounter another Sunsoft enthusiast!

deleted864d ago

Np, great read! I also owned and enjoyed the heck out of Super C back in the day.

I'd also add Metalstorm to my list of underappreciated titles. :)

Nice job. After reading about Xexyx (or however it is spelled) I was reminded of Astyanax and Faxanadu. The names were just otherworldly. But they were tragically underrated as well.

Maybe you should consider a Part 2?

jznrpg863d ago (Edited 863d ago )

@thorstein Faxanadu is one of my favorite games of all time . I played it so much as a kid I still play from time to time

ZeekQuattro863d ago

Kabuki Quantum Fighters was a Nick Arcade classic. Never played it but the name has stuck with me to this day because of that show.

Longie_long863d ago

Nick Arcade was legit! I never saw that though.

ZeekQuattro863d ago

Not surprised. They usually kept playing the same popular games of the day in different rotations. Every now and then you got a random title like that one. I found the name so odd that it just stuck with me.

P_Bomb863d ago

With Sunsoft you knew you were getting good graphics and music,

Personal honorable mentions to Faxanadu and Crystalis.

racer22863d ago

I dont know if its been underrated, but kung fu master was such a awesome game on the nes. Even if it couldnt compare with the arcade version in graphics, the gameplay was so amasing. Awesome sound effects too. Played it for countless hours....
