Top Ten NES Games...

I remember when I was in third grade, I had a freind that lived three doors down named Katie. And Katie was the first person that I knew who got a Nintendo Entertainment System. So I was at her house all the time. (In fact, one time we got into a big fight and she accused me of only being her friend because of her Nintendo. Which, for the record, wasn't true. She had a lot of other cool toys too...) But it wasn't for another year or two that I got one myself.

But when I did... It occupied every free minute of my time. I still remember staying up until midnight playing games. (Only on Friday nights though. What can I say? Mom ran a tight ship.)

And so, in honor of something that was such an important (read as time consuming) part of my childhood, I've decided to complie a list of my top ten NES games. Kind of like my list of Top Ten Cartoons of the Eighties. Now, I should say that, this list is not exhaustive. In fact, I freely admit that it's totally subjective. It's my favorite NES games.

But feel free to add in your faves in the comments...

10) Paperboy

9) Excitebike

8) Donkey Kong Jr.

7) Duck Hunt

6) Burgertime

5) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2: The Arcade Game

1) Super Mario 3
