NHL 94 on SNES trumps all of these....Powerstone on Dreamcast was a good multiplayer game too.


Out here with the moves like I invented smooth

Punch Out is my favorite to play now on the NES Classic. Sadly, RBI Baseball and TMNT aren't on that box and Techmo Bowl is unplayable now on there, imo

But Legand of Zelda is most important game to be released on the NES as the first commercially successful open world story driven game. It was ground breaking and influenced industry in the subsequent decades more than any other.

I actually had Mega Man and Tetris originally, but thought I had too many games.

I feel like that was a different game on a different system. King Hippo kind of looked like Butterbean.

I went from an Atari 2600 to a Wii and skipped everything else. I do remember playing a boxing game with Tyson fighting Butterbean on a console my brother-in-law had but it may most likely was a different system.

Now you've gone and done it.... back to therapy. I still have nightmares of Jimmy Orr standing all alone in the endzone waving frantically while Earl Morrall threw a pick.
