I just bought a used NES earlier this afternoon. It wasn't exactly cheap; $50 for the console, one controller, power adapter, and RF switch. But, it's in great condition (already took it apart, blew out a little dust, and put it back together) and works perfectly. I've already played it a little tonight. I've got to start building up my collection of games again...

You might be thinking "So what? It's a Nintendo. Big deal." Well, yeah. It's a big deal to me because I haven't had my NES since my mom gave mine to some "less than financially fortunate" neighbors about 12 or 13 years ago. I still give her shit about it today...

Anyways, I've reclaimed one of my games that I originally had. About a week ago, I found a copy of the Gold version of The Legend Of Zelda. It's in perfect condition (no scratches, and the sticker on the cartridge is perfect, too) and came in the original box. No booklet, though. But oh well. Now I've got to find all my other favorite old games... Mario/Duck Hunt, Mario 2, Mario 3, Excite Bike, Punisher, Ninja Turtles, etc.

The NES had some really great games. I think i sold mine when i was 11...pity, i think i'd still use it every now and then. Ninja turtles kicked ass, and so did mario...until the N64 versions..

I'm trying to remember if there was a FuncoLand down there... but I don't think so. If you happen to find one, they have TONS of cheap NES games (we got Mario/Duck Hunt for 49 cents). The ones that are more rare (like Zelda) may cost up to $20 though. Actually, we got our console there, too... for 20 bucks

Here's my list so far...

Mario/Duck Hunt
Mario 3
Contra
Super Contra
RC Pro-Am
Tecmo Bowl
Bases Loaded
Super Off-Road
RBI Baseball

There were some more I wanted but didn't think it was worth paying the extra moolah for (I'll just play the rom on here ).

Yeah, I still need to get the blaster gun... And I need to get controllers that are in slightly better condition. The one that came with mine works fine, but it's kinda beat up.

[edit]
The Gold version of Zelda cost me $25.

Actually, I just used an old toothbrush to clean all the small spots and creases on the case. Looks great. And no, I don't think there's any Funcolands down here... I wish there were.

you need a jog-pad and that one cartridge that has mario/duck hunt/olympic game on it.
the gun is called the Zapper BTW. You should also get Kirby, Metroid,
Bomberman (for some four player action) and a Game Genie. Hard as hell
to find a working one.

Flea Markets... Great for finding old games. I just went to one a few days ago and bought a working Atari 2600 and 29 games for $12.

Spiffy. I want to get Gradius, too... In fact, I want to get Gradius 3 for my SNES, since I haven't played that in years either. Oh, and I just HAVE TO HAVE the original Tetris.

My NES broke the week I got it, and my Dad had to take it back to the shop. I got a Master System II after that. I remember Alex Kidd was such a damn difficult game, I don't remember ever completing it.

I had no idea that funcoland sold old NES's that cheap. My parents don't believe in video games, and have never allowed me and my sisters to buy them. Until now. I'm 17 and can have videogames. Woo hoo! (It's not that they thought that they were tools of satan or anything: they just didn't want us to sit in front of the TV all day.)

Lots of Love,

Man! I'm surprised noone mentioned Ninja Gaiden! This was the best game on NES. Here or some other fav's of mine:

Mega Man 2
Mario Brothers 2
Zelda 2
Golf (My dad actually played this one with me, so it holds sentamental value)

If you ever want to completely waste hours and hours of time, then get a nes emulator and download the game called "Pirates". Now, listen closely, you must turn the game speed up to very fast, get high or drunk, and continue to conquer the high seas for hours. Me and some friends did this during our sophomore year of finals. Nothing constructive (like studying) happened that week, yet I still pulled off good grades due to hard work during the whole semester.

Gah, I wish I knew whether my games are crapped out or my NES is crapped out. I used to whack my games really hard when they didn't start. Yeah, that was a really stupid thing for me to do, but I didn't know any better when I was a little kid.

Super Mario2, Marble Madness, Rescue Rangers and Bubble Bobble were my favorite games.
