The NES has an awesome library full of classics that include the first games in a lot of long-lived series.
What are your top five titles from the NES/Famicom family? Feel free to include hacks, translations or indie titles as you see fit.
Here are mine (as of today...this could certainly change as frequently as the weather):
- The Legend of Zelda
- Super Mario Bros. 3
- Dragon Warrior III
- Final Fantasy III
Plenty of honorable mentions - Kirby's Adventure, Rygar, Gradius, Gradius II, Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior IV, Contra, Castlevania, Castlevania III, Solar Jetman, Battletoads...the list goes on. What a great console!
