I rented Karnov one night then went to spend the night at my friend's house. I brought Karnov with me but he didn't want to play video games so I pretended I was sick and went home so I could play.

For nostalgia reasons I agree wholeheartedly. The SNES holds up more for today. But right now the original Xbox is my favorite system. But then I will get a hankering for my 5200, Genesis, Jaguar....But right now, I want to marry my Xbox. Played some Morrowind yesterday: Sure the graphics are quite drag but unlike Oblivion I jumped right in and was having a blast.

He was not a real friend. Karnov was incredible! I remember me and my buddies hunkered over the Simon's Quest guide....Oh man it was so fun. Back then the guide was considered a pricey addition, and only the divorced kids or the rich kids got them. They were awesome. Otherwise we scoured Nintendo Power for hints.

Well, it is at this moment. In a month it may swing back to the SNES, which it was a month or so ago when I was playing SMB: All Stars and Super Metroid with my kids. Or it could go back to the NES....I am a swinger.

LMAO, talk about nostalgia. The NES was a good system FOR IT'S TIME, but come on, to say that it is the best console ever is a joke.

Hey, I did a posting a week ago about your favorite 8-bit games....Did you participate or big time my thread!?

In reply to an earlier post on Apr 23, 2012 6:15:01 PM PDT
I had another friend who was much more sensible. A friend of the family owned a video store so even as a kid I was able to rent games. It was a ritual on Fridays to go rent NES games and play them all night with friends (usually my house since my mom worked nights.) I remember renting RC ProAm and we just played the hell out of it. I glanced out the window and the sun had come up. We literally played all night without realizing it.

Man, all night NES marathons, playing Lazer Tag in the graveyard or on the roof of our school in the middle of the night, Transformers & GI Joe.

Childhood well spent!

Oh OK, so you don't really have a favorite, you just have moods.

I vaguely remember that game, a friend of mine rented it one weekend when I spent the night. Correct me if I am wrong but that game was about an ex-circus russian guy that breathed fire and collected treasures and had to face the end boss called "the Wizard".

I went onto youtube to see some Video on it and it is all coming back to me now. Yeah it was a cheesy game. I remember my friend liking the game a whole lot more than I did.

My friend there was a whole lot of cheesy games back during the NES days, but that's what made them great. Remember Kung Fu, so cheesy, but yet so much fun.

River City Ransom is epic cheesiness.

I love Kung Fu. Have you played Legend of Kage? Also Faxanadu was really good.

From a business perspective, it was. They got 10 years out of it.

"Playing Nintendo" meant you were playing video games. it had major cultural impact. it revived the industry after the crash caused by so many crappy games on the 2600.

A lot of people don't seem to realize how powerful the Nintendo brand name was back then. It was like asking for a Kleenex or going to Tootle something. Nintendo simply meant video games. They had like 92% of the US market. Toys R Us was loaded with Nintendo stuff and not just video games. One time at Toys R Us my mom got me a black sweatshirt with a neon green Nintendo logo. I wore that to school. There were test stations at stores like Sears so you could troubleshoot a console that wasn't working. There was Nintendo breakfast cereal and Super Mario Bros soda pop. In Ghostbusters II the NES Advantage was used to control the Statue of Liberty.

Nintendo was an empire back then
