Great topic, the original NES was a great system. I actually have my old one hooked up in our spare bedroom as well. A lot of great memories with that system. It might have been the fact that we were kids, but even with all of the graphical advances, etc. of the new systems, I almost think my friends and I had the most "fun" with the old NES. Hours upon hours of Tecmo Bowl, I can tell you that for sure. I still have fun playing that game. Don't get me wrong, the new games are pretty spiffy too, and we never had anything like Rogue Leader on that old system either
. Anyways, the NES was and still is a great system to just have fun with I think. A lot of great games like the ones you mentioned....I also remember Castlevania, Mega Man, Kid Icarus, Mario, and of course Star Wars.
