I have a plain-old Nintendo Entertainment System (but it's the top-loading kind, so no annoying blinkies!!).
I love the original Zelda and Contra games, plus lots others.
I'd love to have a Super Nintendo, but I don't trust people on e-bay anymore (I REALLY lucked out when I got my NES). As far as that goes, I love Zelda, Mega Man X (all the Mega Mans (Men?), really), Super Mario World, Ms. Pac Man, etc. The list really goes on.
Beyond Super NES, I can't play any of the games--I suck at 4-deminsional!!
I used to love the Atari system, too, and I've been thinking about getting some of those "classic" games that just plug into the newer tv's (if I ever get a newer tv :) )

Andrea you know, but I'll do this for everyone else :)
My husband and I are basically great big nerds and we play video games a LOT. Here are all our systems:
Sega Master System
Gameboy (2 original, 2 color, 1 Advance SP)
I think I got the all. Anyway we have shelves and shelves FULL of games. Some of my favorites include Yoshi's Island (absolute fav), Super Mario 3, the Zelda's for Nintendo, Sonic 2, and the Kirby Dreamland series. I'm not very good at the newer games either. Super Nintendo is without a doubt my favorite system. Followed by Gamecube and the DS. I'm definitely a Nintendo girl. I've actually considered getting a tattoo of Yoshi ;)
It's nice to see other people are into gaming too!
4myself, you might want to try www.ebgames.com I know they sell used games, they might sell used systems too! A Super Nintendo is definitely worth tracking down!

Had X-box which had only halo. REturned it and got ps2 and was happy for a few years until it broke last year. It happened out of nowhere. Since it is a mod Ps2 and my warranty likely had expired anyway, I am left with a broken one. By the way, I hate Halo.
Now, I use my pc but can't play the all the newest games cause my pc ain't fast enough. I couldn't play need for speed latest edition but did play call of duty which was very very good.
NES rules all on a tower above them, and laughs at their feeble attempts at god like status.
Good games played on PC: Max Payne, Call of Duty, Command and Conquer, and The Movies (I hate sims games but this one is good for at least a few days).

hey to be,
is the broken one still new enough that it can be bought? bc if it is you can buy a new one, clean up the old and return the old one in the new box. my family does it all the time.

02-10-2006, 02:03 PM
what's wrong with it? that sucks, especially because you waited for it and now you can't even play it!

:lol: Never thought I'd see a thread like this here. I am a video game freak as well....grew up with an Atari 2600 but never did like it much since my older sis bought it for us when she got married and moved out--but my parents never really thought to buy us any new games so all we had was Pong, Space Invaders and Pac-Man. When my nephew was 5, he got a NES system and we took that thing over like nobody's business. My mom bought me my own system when I was 16 :^: and I took her little 13" color TV into my room and never looked back. Super Mario and Zelda were my favorites then...but then along came Contra--remember those cheat codes for unlimited men? up/up/down/down/left/right/left/right/B/A select/start...or something like that. My memory is fading on that one :lol:
These days we have an Xbox which has awesome graphics but some of the games are just beyond me. I do like Jet-Set Radio Future, Off-Road Wide Open and other easy games like that. My now 7 y.o. son is the king of the news games which I can't operate. He also has a GameBoy SP and a DS which I play around with sometimes when he's in school. Then I get a little lip service from him when I forget to charge up the battery pack :lol: Funny thread!

hi stacey! sup girl?
thanks...i dont know...(possibly nothin) my mom hooked it up for me and i love her dearly but stuff like this isnt her thing and though the guy ar radio shack gave her the proper attatchments and told her where to put them its not working. thats why im hoping my bil will stop by after work and look at the connection cuz if the thing is broken i wanna notify the guy asap. he says the thing worked when it shipped so until i know it doesnt, im gonna believe him. and yes it sucks bc im bored to death! ill keep ya posted.
hey meleka welcome:)
lol on that tv and not lookin back! i too grew up w a 2600 which was ident to the used one i just bought bc its all i know how to play lol. it came w a ton of carts but ive already sorted out the ones i know i love!
