    All are probably on the list, but

    Contra
    Battletoads & Double Dragon
    Guerilla War
    Yoshi's Cookie
    SMB3
    Bubble Bobble
    Tetris

    And an honorable mention to Duck Hunt (thanks to the DP Guide I learned the 2nd player controller can control the duck - too. cool. )

    Default 2-player is best simultaneous

    Contra + Super C are definitely up there, as is Blades of Steel. I thought the original Ice Hockey wasn't too bad, either, but you couldn't throw off the gloves and fight The Turtles games were r0><0r, too.

    I don't know about the Mario games for 2-player...they were great, but IMO 2-player works best when you have both people on the screen at once.
    I have no signature.

    everybody's choices in this category are indeed worthy, but i'd definitely say that CONTRA is THE best nes 2-player game. and really- was the game even fun WITHOUT two players?

    Ice Hockey HAS to be on this list. To this day it's still one of the best hockey games of all time.

    Default Kung-Fu Heroes!

    KUNG-FU HEROES would make my top 20 (although I prefer the arcade version, CHINESE HEROES). MULE is another excellent game I didn't see on this list. I second the vote for MICRO MACHINES. And how has this thread gone this long without JOUST getting a vote?

    I know this is an old post and you're smarter now, but c'mon: None of these are NES games.

    Chalk up another vote for Ice Hockey. It deserves a spot on the list.

    Tecmo Bowl is great for its historic value, but Tecmo Super Bowl to this day remains the greatest sports game ever made. The running game of Bo Jackson versus the Montana-Rice passing game is the most dynamic head-to-head match-up imaginable in a video game. Rumor has it that God himself had dreams of Bo zig-zaggin' along a TV screen, and forced the programmers to put it in the game. Tecmo Bowl is a nice piece, but it has to be replaced by Super Bowl.


    Other notables: Spy vs. Spy is a fairly average 1-player game, but it's a lot of fun going head-to-head against another person. Same can be said for North & South. Super C is another, but the original Contra is already up there. And how about Smash TV? Sure, the NES couldn't handle a perfect port of the arcade game (one of the top 2-player arcade games ever), but it's close enough to retain most of the gameplay.

    Glad to see Bubble Bobble got some recognition.

    But Double Dragon's two-player mode was just a one-on-one battle. The co-op fighting came in its sequels.

    And, as far as baseball games goes, I'd have to say Base Wars was the best of them. (Mainly because it was the one I had the best chance of beating some of my friends at.)
    Gimmie a game, I'll either love it, or pimp-smack it.
