wenty years after the release of the Nintendo Entertainment System, the GameSpot editors took a look back at the console that shaped gaming, in our feature Flashback NES.
As part of that experience, we asked our readers to submit their own nominations for their favorite NES games of all time. Nearly 12,000 votes were tallied to get these results, and thousands of submissions were read. Many readers cited excellent soundtracks on several games, claiming that the music was still ingrained in their memories. Other readers loved being able to play games with their friends and family and mentioned that in some instances, members of their families, such as their parents, enjoyed playing these games as much as they did. Quite a few people felt that the nature of their submission was so obvious that little needed to be said in defense of their choice.
If one thing can be said of NES games, it's that people are quite passionate about them. We've included excerpts from many of the submissions to help explain why the readers feel the way they do. What follows is an ordered list from 10 to 1 of the readers' top 10 NES games of all time.
If you want to just straight to the part where you sound off about the choices, feel free to jump right over to the comments section of our Honorable Mentions page Thanks for contributing, and enjoy!
