    Default NES: Best 2-Player Simultaneous Games

    Any suggestions for great 2 player simultaneous games?

    We're already big fans of Contra, Bubble Bobble, Ice Hockey, and Tecmo Bowl.

    You've got some good ones there, Contra is my favorite. Also check out-

    Life Force
    Double Dragon II
    Ikari Warriors
    Jackal
    Kung Fu Heroes
    Little Ninja Boy
    Chip N Dale Rescue Rangers
    Gameshow titles (Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, etc.)
    Anticipation
    Blades of Steel, Double Dribble

    I'll add more as I think of them.

    How about Duck Hunt? Plug a controller into the 1st port and you can control the duck in "1 duck" mode.

    Try you hands at Narc

    Double Dragon II is so fun once you figure out how to do specials.

    Try Super Dodgeball if you can find it.

    I think you're thinking of Micro Machines.

    Trog is a good one.

    I don't know whom you are talking about when you say "we're". But if you are referring to a wife/girlfriend I'd recommend Marble Madness, second Bubble Bobble, and third the gameshow vote with Family Feud in particular. My wife loves all of those.

    If your "we're" is a buddy/dude then I'd recommend most of the above along with
    North and South
    Baseball Stars
    River City Ransom (I think that's two players)


    Oh and if you are a woman, then flip and reverse above suggestions

    Most all of Nintendo's 2 player VS. unisystem translations were excellent.

    Ice Climber, Wrecking Crew, Balloon Fight (the best Joust rip-off ever), and the very underrated Clu Clu Land.

    Is Clu Clu Land 2 player simultaneous? I didn't know that!
