Rogue,

Know any good emulator sites? It would be good to play NES, SNES, Intellivision and C-64 games again.

Cheers,
Aquaman

i actually never owned any video game console besides the NES...

how many of you guys still have your NES working?

mine is in PERFECT condition...no blowing into the game or anything to get it working...hehe...i still play it like 3 times a week maybe...

these are games i still play for NES: Contra, Super Tecmo Bowl, and RBI Baseball...

since i don't have a SNES, i got the emulator awhile ago, the only game i play? SUPER TENNIS!

NES - World Cup Soccer (it was included on the same cart as Super Spike V'Ball which was included in the NES Satellite, and the game rules! best soccer game I have played)

and I will back you up with the Micro Machines, Adventure Island, and super spike V'Ball picks... all great games.

I remember River City Ransom, that was a sweet ass game. I still remember my favorite skill was acrobatics, somersaulting around the screen was tons of fun.

NES- Super Dodge Ball, River City Ransom, Baseball Stars, Ninja Gaiden series.

SNES- Actraizer series, Alexay, Super Metroid (first time I played the last boss and the metroid came out to save samus I was like "woah!!!!"), and of course almost all the square games. Also tetris attack, the best puzzle game ever.

NES Zelda
SNES Zelda
GameBoy Zelda
N64 Zelda
Gamecube(whenever it comes out) Zelda

Although I don't play any games now, Zelda will always be the best.
I remember I used to draw pictures of Link all the time. He was so cool.
