Few things never get old, and if you’re a 90’s kid, this blog is going to make you nostalgic. The Nintendo has a massive library of 700+ titles, but don’t worry, we have narrowed down the eternal love to 5 Best games ever. The gaming console was called the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES).
One of Nintendo’s great things is that the gameplay and the gamepad are still old schools, a screen enough for us to play and buttons instead of joysticks like most of the other gaming consoles nowadays. Even Nintendo Switch is the most fun to play if you love old school classical games, and we expect Nintendo to stay the same for the sake of ancient times.
Five Best Nintendo Games
5. Kung Fu
Kung Fu was launched way back in 1985. This game is classic as it is an arcade game based on the martial art. Even today’s time, Tekken 7, which is a similar concept, is well played around the world even in 2020.
This game might not have been one of the most famous games, but it inspired many next-generation games like street fighter, Tekken series, etc. The simple gameplay and a simple but satisfying story of this game will make you fall in love with this classical game. And if you’ve never played it, even if you’re a 90’s kid, trust me you’ve missed a lot of fun.
We all remember how the 80s and 90s muscular guys got famous because of no one other than Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallon. Contra is a game that gives us Rambo movie vibes whenever we play, a muscular guy carrying powerful weapons and destroying his enemies.
There wasn’t much of a strategy to play the game. It was all about moving forward and firing all the time and bringing hell down on the bad guys. Also, the upgrades which were available after small intervals were cool AF.
A few games tried to carry forward the mantle of evergreen and famous Contra but failed in doing so like Contra: Rogue Corps, which was released in 2019.
3. Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!
It’s a punch-out. So yes, it means boxing. Back then, video games were not that great at graphics and all, including functionality. Today, video gamers play mostly WWE and UFC, but in the 90s, this game was the kids’ WWE. If you don’t know Mike Tyson, let me tell you, Mike Tyson is one of the greatest Boxer America has ever produced. He was in the sport from 1985 to 2005, and this game came out in 1987. This timeline is enough to say how great he was.
There is only one word that can explain this game, “fun.” This game was the most fun and even with minimal functionality. Just look at the image above. He looks amazingly big and a tough guy.
Yes, yes, and yes. Tetris is one of the most famous old school games. Everyone has played it once in their lifetime. This favorite mind-boggling puzzle game is the most basic ever. All you have to do is fix the figures and avoid reaching the top.
You can play this game as a single-player and multiplayer with anyone and see who gets to the top and loses. The vibrant colors and random shapes made the game a lot of fun. It’s been 30 years since this game came out, and still feels fresh on cheap kid’s gaming consoles. At last, it is okay to say that this game may outlive us.
Yep, Mario is the one that will never be old. One of the most functional game ever. The original Super Mario will always have a unique space in our hearts. This game has the most iconic design, music, and world ever- in the 8-bit games. It’s enjoyable to enter random pipes and use turtles to defeat those creepy animals.
Even now, games like Super Mario Kart are played enough around the world. Over the period, the game has been redesigned a lot of times, and changes have been made in respect of the world, difficulty levels, and new goals. And yes, don’t forget about Luigi when you are playing multiplayer with your sibling or a friend.
