Hmmm...have a list of what you do have?

Baseball Stars comes to mind right off the bat though

Well, honestly, not much....many of my games have been lost (via my younger brother), or borrowed and not returned.  What remains is Tecmo Super Bowl, Mario Bros/Duck Hunt, Tecmo NBA Basketball, RBI Baseball, Donkey Kong, and a couple of others I can't remember off hand right now (nothing great).  Some games I thought were fun that my friends had but I never did were: Kid Icarus, Mega Man, Metroid, Mike Tyson's Punch Out, Pro Wrestling (had, but lost somehow), Zelda, Excitebike, etc.  I've also thought about looking for the Empire Strikes Back game (remembered renting that one), as well as Super Dodgeball, which I've heard is a lot of fun.

Tecmo Bowl
Punch Out
Mega Man (there's a crap load of them, I like part 4 (I think, the first one with his robo dog friend))
Contra (any Konami game actually and don't forget the code - "up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start".  I still remember it after all these years.

And of course, you can't go wrong with Super Mario Bros, but I'm sure you have those already - everyone and their brother did.

Common sense isn't so common

Well for Multi Player I'd go:

Pro Wrestling
Baseball Stars
Super Tecmo Bowl
Ice Hockey (the original Nintendo version)
Contra
Ikari Warriors
RC Pro AM
Gauntlet
RBI Baseball
Super Dodge Ball

For Single Player:

Metroid
Super Mario 1,2 and 3
Kid Icarus
Mike Tyson's Punch-Out
Legend of Zelda 1 and 2
Mega-Man 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 etc ;)
Castlevania 1 and 3...2 if you want a whole set
Goonies II
Ninja Gaiden


That should get you going...you may want to pick up a new pin connector off eBay if your NES is not a top loader (most aren't) and you have fits of blinkitis when you fire the old girl up

Just noticed Best Buy.com has a 6/24 release date for MegaMan...might it be worth a check today?  I'll check tomorrow

I just saw your Megaman PS2 collection sitting in the glass case at the TRU by me, so it's out there.

Picked up the Mega Man compilation (Gamecube) for $29.99 this afternoon at my lovely local Wal-Mart.

I'll never play it, but, I have it, and--again--that's the most important.

Been playing Mega Man a ton...what a frustrating/fun game.  I hate when you get super far on a level only to jump in a pit of doom >:(

SO I've been playing A Link to the Past on my new GameBoy for the last week or two and am absolutely in love with the game.  Sort of a 2-D Ocarina of Time (which IMO is the greatest game of all time)

I never had a Super Nintendo, seems like I missed out on a bunch of great games.  Isn't the Super Mario game from Super Nintendo out on GB?  Any others that would be worth picking up????
