Nice. If you can beat the first one, I'm sure you'll do just fine with 2 and 3.

Ninja Gaiden 3 is definitely the 3rd best NES Ninja Gaiden game.

It's OK, that's a common opinion of people who don't care about NES and can't beat any of them.

Oh My!

But I can't say I'm shocked. Nes is the most underrated system in the RTT by far. Gameplay is far more important than graphics when choosing one or the other.

Except now you DO want to play Nes games, welcome to the fold 😉

I feel like even with our games that we've chosen too many aside from Ninja Gaiden have been talked badly about. Almost everybody said something negative about Castlevania 1. And compared to most other games it is better than them.

Monster in my Pocket was also doged about and I honestly don't know why, I almost didn't play it thinking people were being totally honest. It's a little plain especially the first couple of levels and it's a fairly straightforward platform game. If this had fancy ass graphics and a different type of storyline people wouldn't have said anything bad about it. It's a fun short little game with a couple of cool boss fights.

I feel like too many people give props to games on systems with bad gameplay but decent graphics. I'm guilty myself with the Resident Evil games. I can't help that I just love that world. The game is serviceable but without those graphics and storyline I would never play it.

I like the NES. I like the good games on it for sure. Stuff like Maniac Mansion is super iffy.

I'm a Castlevania fan boy but CV1 on NES is pretty bad.

I am too and it's still better than Sotn and Super Castlevania 4 for sure. But somehow those are still everybody's favorites? Whatevs lol.

It's likely because Rondo, SCIV, SOTN and Aria are the best titles in the franchise.

How is it that you can play through Castlevania 1 and Sotn and say that the random easy meandering of Sotn is great and the original is not?

Don't get me wrong Sotn and Super Castlevania 4 are better than most other games simply because they are still Castlevania and each is still at least a 7.5 out of 10 but when only compared to other Castlevania games? They are right there with Simons Quest if they are even that good.

Because I think they are better. Much better. Imo Castlevania doesn't get fun until Rondo and SCIV. I've played through at least 3 different versions of CV1. They were all pretty rough.

CVIII is a damn masterpiece. I mean, I'm a basic SOTN and CV4 dog, but game designers should study CVIII to make their crapty indie games suck less.

Castlevania 1 being better than SOTN ? I have a lot of opinions in gaming that I know im part of a minority opinion, for instance I don't like most Zelda and resident evil games, or survival horror, but I know im in the minority and don't insist Zelda is bad, only that its not my style.

I thought ninja gaiden 3 was just the right amount of difficulty. The second was frustrating for me.

I am a castlevania fanboy myself, but the first one is my favorite, not because it is better, just because I played the heck out of it back in the day.

Not a bad haul for my first two days thrfting. Didn't even think stuff like this was still out there, let alone all sitting around on 50% off day. All in with the 50% off I think everything cost me $50. Not like the sickest deal but enough to get me started.

US version has continues.

The Japanese version is so easy compared to the US, I had no idea there is a password system.

I was going to test the cart before shipping to Gypsy, ended up beating it.
