Ever picked up an old NES game, and found yourself shouting at the screen saying "That's ridiculous! This game is impossible!" well, that was largely true in many cases, because so many NES games had game crippling design flaws. However, frustrated NES players found salvation through the Game Genie-- one of the best peripherals ever to be made for the system. Simply hook it onto an NES cartridge, put in three "wishes" in the form of codes, and suddenly you were were a video game master who could grind the kid from The Wizard into the dirt!

Some people will argue endlessly that the Game Genie cheapened the experience of some games, but really, the game developers were already doing that themselves. With so many games suffering from ridiculously unfair game design that in many cases made it near impossible to complete them, most of us probably only beat a small portion of the games we owned... That is, unless we knew someone with a game genie, or better yet, had one of our own! Why spend hours throwing the controller at the TV while playing "Dick Tracy" when you can just make yourself invincible and have unlimited super punches?

I can't say Game Genie makes games more fun, but it certainly brought back the fun to games that were so hard you'd given up on them, and on the NES there were A LOT of those. It was a fun device, and when I was a kid it was a household name.

Ah yes.....the Game Genie! This item is SOOO awesome because its simple yet complex. All you have to do is follow the directions on the back of it and a screen with letters and lines will pop up. Then all you have to do is input certain codes for certain games! This thing gives you unlimited heath, ammo, special items, and characters! It's SOOOOOO cool!!!

You should definitly try it out for those seemingly unbeatable games!!!

When purchasing the Game Genie it would have been nice if somewhere it said, "Top load NES owner Beware". Because I have a top loader, and I thought this would work. It did not fit. Not at first. Turned out the GOLD Game Genie I have is not compatible with the top loader NES. So I searched online for a solution. One other than just buying the original boxy NES. I was deadset on making this thing work in my top loader. The only other solutions I found were overly complicated, or expensive, or both. So I said, screw that! I took a good look at the golden pins of the Game Genie and thought that this should fit my NES. Why the hell not? I decided to do what no one online, or anywhere advised, and just push the damned thing as hard as I could into my NES. I admit, I was worried I might break my console, or the Genie, but I kept pushing as far as I thought it would go, turned on the console and...nothing, gray screen. I was vexed. Not sure what the problem was really. I started thinking, well I guess everyone's right, it just won't work in the top loader. I pulled the Genie out of my NES, which was very, very hard to do. My hand really hurt from pushing that hunk of plastic into another hunk of plastic. Feeling as though I had wasted my time and money, I began to get mad, real mad. Thinking, then shouting, why does seemingly everything have to be such a pain or a waste of my time, my money, my patience, and my energy. I sat, glaring at two things that should work together but don't. Minutes go by, and I wanted to smash that Game Genie to vent my frustration. I went and got my hammer, came back to my couch, picked up the Game Genie, went outside, but then I paused. A whisper of an idea hit me. Don't give up yet. Try again. Fine. I would. What could it hurt, besides my hand.Read more ›

This Game Genie for the NES brings back fond memories. I can still remember my brother and I driving
to the Toys'r'us in Huntington Beach and browsing around the video game section. Man, Toys'r'us videogame
section was massive, they had sections for NES, Sega, SNES, and various accessories. We both heard about
a new video game enhancer called the Game Genie. Both of us were frustrated with some of the hardest NES
games ever, Ninja Gaiden 1-3. If you've played these games, they are hard to beat. We both went crazy and
slammed our NES controllers all over the place. I went ahead and bought the Game Genie at Toys'r'us, it was
a no-brainer. Now we rushed home and read the instructions and tried it out on Ninja Gaiden 1. After a day or
so, I finally beat that game. My brother beat Ninja Gaiden 2 and 3, it was so satisfying to finally beat those games.
Now to make things clear, I believe you should not use the Genie immediately to try to beat a game. Try and
beat a game without it numerous times, still can't beat the game? Go ahead and use the Genie. It does enhance
your gaming experience in some ways. You can use it to practice a level you can't beat, go back to that level and play through it with genie, then play it
without the genie. One last thing, my Game Genie won't work on my new FC Twin
console, I've tried different games and no code screen. If anyone can come up
with a solution, please comment.

Having played some old school games back in the day, I've sometimes found it hard to beat certain games, such as "Mystery Quest", "Rush 'N' Attack", "Little Nemo: The Dream Master", etc. Enter the Game Genie for the NES! Having infinite lives or infinite time has helped me out immensely.

But be warned, I only use the Game Genie as a very last resort when I've exhausted ALL of my other options. If you go into the Game Genie website, you can find a plethora of NES titles that have the codes you need to start making life much easier for you, so to speak. However, not EVERY NES title will have the codes that you are looking for, so please peruse the site very carefully.
