    Default Classic Nintendo Games...Your Favs?

    so heres the thing. im going to be startin this weekly column at my site...toocubed.com ...ever week there will be a new mini review of a classic game that deserves to be recognized...these will be to inform classic gamers that there was in fact games before Halo...you know the kinda people...

    these have to be games that revolutionized the way people thought of games, and to this day still inspire gamers, and game creators a like

    obviously i have started work on the Zelda series and Mario series...

    i think this will be a great way to inform people of how games today came to be, and i think itll be a fun little project

    so what games would you want to see mini reviews of?

    note: there will be no actual review/scores for these games...this is mearly to inform the masses of games they probably havent even tried, and to get more people interested in classic gaming

    It´d be great to let new gamers about some NES games like:

    * River City Ransom
    * Clash at demonhead
    * Double Dragon 2
    * Faxanadu

    Looks like everybody's got the NES pretty well covered, so here are some non-NES suggestions.

    Arcade-wise, don't forget about Donkey Kong, DK Jr. and Mario Bros. Radarscope might be worth mentioning, although it's just a so-so game.

    The Game & Watch series is always an interesting topic when discussing Nintendo history.

    And don't forget the Game Boy! Tetris, Mario's Picross, the Mario/Wario games, and Metroid II are good ones. Castlevania II: Belmont's Revenge is my personal favorite, although it's by Konami and not Nintendo.
