Post 'em if you got 'em.
I see this posted every so often, but rarely see any love. Great game!
I liked it, and not because of that "still the best" creepypasta from a couple years back, I actually had this as a kid.
I admit I never got very far, but god damn it, it was a fucking GODZILLA vidya.
What is the name of a NES platformer kind of game where you controlled some sort of weird fat kid and the first level is running through a forest and iirc there are some snakes as enemies. I might be mistaken but I think he threw rocks as an attack. Also I remember you could grab a skateboard upgrade and he'd ride until he tripped. Then the second stage is on some kind of beach and you hop on some platform clouds that fall when you stand in them too long.
His moving animation looked like a sideways march, anyway that's how I remember, the game was weird but fun.
Formula 1 Built to win. my favorite nes racer. overworld map, multiple cars and upgrades, boost, day and night courses. maybe even betting, its been a long time.
also 2 awesome japan-only games that are absolutely worth playing: Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 3 and Mitsume ga tooru (aka 3 eyed one).
Also the Ganbare Goemon games, Ganbare Goemon 2 has a fan translation in english.
Asterix and The Smurfs. Nice visually, decent gameplay and awesome soundtrack. They are not perfect, certainly no unique, but these qualities alone make them stand above most other games.
So many idiots shit on the Godzilla games because they don't get them, but they are really good. I think those strategy games were a genius idea. The Game Gear game is also great.
It is known. I don't know what Star Wars is doing in there. It shit in on itself already, but especially in comparison to the other games in there.
Ai Senshi Nicol. The controls and jumping are so tight.
An unreleased NES game that had some memes about it, like the German butter guy. Somebody found the game a few years back and dumped it on the net. The animation and graphics are nice but its level design is lacking.
I don't think I ever managed to finish it, interesting game overall, and the plot twist was kinda fresh for its age. I think it was easy to get stuck, tho, since you could move around freely in the unlocked zones.
>So many idiots shit on the Godzilla games because they don't get them
also AVGN did a Godzilla games episode, so a lot of things that think they are people now know without playing those games that they are bad games
yeah Godzilla NES is pretty odd and silly and messy, but it's also fun and good

a very difficult isometric/top-down shooter https://youtu.be/Dr730Hd2_kU

- cute af
- original gameplay

I do, I love Godzilla and the NES game is pretty good.
It's at least much better then the turd that was recently released on PS3/PS4.
The problem with Clash at Semenhead is the dense and obtuse map system you NEED to learn to play it properly until you get le warp... That's a high concrete wall for beginners to climb.
never heard of this one before. Just played it a bit. Sloppy moves, but overall a nice little platformer (some monster/background design are neat, I like how the spear can be used as a shield & attack in several direction); kinda like an inferior Little Samson, without the multiple character.
I hated this game when I was a kid. Probably because of the difficulty but also because it seemed crude and ugly compared to where a lot of NES games were at the time I played it (90/91).
Only right now do I see that it's basically action Bomberman. (a series I got to know and like much later than the NEs days)
i think this one is called super 3 grea t game no one ever mention it
would really recommend StarTropics. Sort of a Zelda-type adventure straight from Nintendo
no love for Totally Rad?
OK it's a generic platformer/Megaman-like, but some sprites have such an original design! https://youtu.be/E4zfEVP4zAc
Pretty much a ninja gaiden rip off, but each weapon type you could turn into a different animal which was awesome as a kid. Also, 2-player co-op and great music.
It's not underappreciated between people who know it, but does anyone remember that one NES gem, where you like throw stars and can climb onto'm, it's a hard game but well loved for it's attention to detail.
Gimmick has become quite well known in recent years, similar to little samson both were pretty unknown to most people but both have a large fanbase of people who always mention it in nes threads. Gimmick is a fantastic game though, too bad I'm too shit to get the best ending.
I have always loved this one and I would gladly own it if it wasn't rare
I just gave this a whirl on emulation. It's quite nice. I died on the first boss though, and was a bit peeved at having to kill all the enemies in every room just to open the doors again. The movement is a bit clumsy as well.
I'll stick at it for now though.
Joy Mech Fight, the best fighting game for the Famicom with the biggest roster for a fighting game at the time (until KoF became a thing).
best fighting game on nes/famicom beside kart fighter
Probably my favorite ARPG. The music, story, combat, and items are all amazing for their time. I think it blows most 2D Zeldas out of the water.
Though switching between swords is AIDS.
best NES homebrew incoming (no idea if it's unappreciated or not) :
Bonus point for being a caravan shooter.
Quirky funky twee hipster game before Earthbound or Mother.
Localized before either, too.
>Snow Bros is rare
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand now I'm pissed that I don't still have my cart. Fuck. I traded it in a LONG time ago when it was functionally worthless. One of my favorite games, too. Fuck, now I'm seriously pissed about this.
One of the few fishing games that I've seen people who don't care about fishing enjoy.
The NES port of Smash TV is neat. One of the control schemes is to hold 2 controllers vertically and play with each D-Pad. It works pretty well.
The NES pinball games are cool too. I like Rock'n Ball and Roller Ball. Plain old blackbox Pinball is probably still my favorite.
Rampart is fun with a friend, but I'm not sure how the NES version compares to other ports. So is the hammer golf game from Crash n the Boys Street Challenge.
forgot pic. Conquest of the Crystal Palace is great too.
>All these recommendation charts
>No Rollergames in sight
This game is pretty cool, hard as balls and the music is good old Konami stuff.
I remember only beating it once, some of the levels are a bit much.
Created a Google doc of all the games mentioned here. Did it so I can check em out later... Enjoy
There's a pretty neat bug I remember endlessly screwing around with as a kid.
You can walk through walls by dropping your teleporter against a wall and teleporting into the wall over and over.
If you go off screen in a direction you're not supposed to, you can end up in weird places.
Oh, shit...good memories. Bio Force Ape was its name. I go back a ways as a Digital Press poster.It went from a "should I release this in ROM form to the public" to a purportedly smashed cart (hoax) to brilliantly fabricated screenshots of the "dur butter monster". You had to be a forum regular to get the "dur butter" "2k monies" "eat communism", etc. jokes. It was parody perfection. Once again, those were some good times.
I actually cleaned the picture quality up on the screen shots for both the "I am dur butter" and the "eat communism" screenshots and made my own personal black 2-sided t-shirt. Still my favorite t-shirt, and those in the know who run into me irl shit bricks when they see me in it.
I have two copies of this game because it's so amazing.
