Best Original Nintendo (NES) Games

41 Battletoads

Needs to be higher... SO VOTE!

Although it's hard as nails it's such a fantastic game that I can't stop playing. Without a doubt one of the best games for the console. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

Why do people love this game. It's nearly impossible and people are defending it like it's GOD! I played this game and it was hard and I didn't enjoy it. You people who like this terrible game I...I..Know what I don't get why you like it! The game is boring and hard. - spodermanfan1000

Think it should be ten spots higher, though it's really hard.

42 1943: Battle of Midway

Great game as long as you have a turbo controller, don't even think about making it past stage 10 with a non turbo controller

43 Itchy and Scratchy

This is SNES, but whatever

Best NES game on the SNES!

44 Blades of Steel
45 Bomberman

Bomber man 4 smash!... sorry, that was irrelevant - Keb

46 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game V 1 Comment
47 Dr. Mario
48 Gremlins 2: The New Batch

One of the best licensed video games. - DamnFineCupOfCoffee

49 Kid Icarus

Kid Icarus should not be this far down on the list. Incredible game that tested your jumping abilities tremendously. Thank the divines for angel feathers! I have a lot of things to say about those eggplant men! They made me a little angry!

52 Ice Climber

Awesome game. Also I really like the ice climbers so I got it on the wii shop and so I really liked this game very very very much.

How come there are no sequels to Ice Climber yet? There could be Ice Climber Unleashed, Ice Climber Land & etc. Ice Climber seriously deserves sequels & mre games to the franchise rather than just in Super Smash Bros.

Best multiplayer Game besides Super C.

53 Dragon Warrior
54 Tecmo Bowl

Yup, the original sports game. Very fun and very easy to pick up and play

Ah... Scrambling around with QB Eagles... Rushing for 1000 yards in a single game with Bo Jackson... Or heaving it blindly downfield to Jerry Rice... Good Times

55 Double Dragon III: The Rosetta Stone

Wow, this is such a fun and underrated game. If you haven't played it please try and you will put it in top 10 for sure!

It's actually Double Dragon III: The Sacred Stones. But close enough.

56 Shatterhand

The best NES game I have ever played and it deserves more attention than what it had received when it was first unveiled. I hope to live to see the day that Shatterhand makes a unbelievable comeback and rock everyone's world.

57 Duck Tales Duck Tales DuckTales is an American animated television series produced by Walt Disney Television Animation. It premiered on September 18, 1987 and ended on November 28, 1990 with a total of four seasons and 100 episodes.

Clever gameplay, good graphics and overall, just a plain fun game to play. It was actually featured in the November 2006 issue of Nintendo Power magazine as a testament of this game's lasting appeal.

Very good platform game and asewome musics!
