When Nintendo Was Cool!

I would consider "cool" up until the Game Cube.  NES, GameBoy, SNES and N64 I was hardcore into.  After the Game Cube I think I played just for Mario Kart and also began my love of Mario Party. The Wii was a hit for the first Christmas season then it was out, now it is just a device that lets me watch Netflix.

My Favorite Games:
  • Duck Hunt
  • Paper Boy
  • Bubble Bobble
  • Excitibike
  • Ducktales
  • TMNT
  • To the Earth
  • All Mario Karts
  • All games that involved the Mario characters
  • Pokemon Snap
  • Star Fox 64

Super Mario World was THE VERY FIRST game that I ever beat all the way through unlocking everything.  It did take a LONG time though and I was quite happy with myself.  Next was Star Fox 64.  My brother and I loved that game {Do a barrel roll!}.  As of late I have been having a fun time going back and playing all these retro games {see links above}.  I am dying to play Paperboy as that is one of my all time favorite games.

What are some of you guys' favorite retro games?  Are there any I missed?
After Christmas I began my first "real" video game The Walking Dead.  It is super easy and great for a non gamer to get introduced to gaming.  More than half way through now so be on the look out for my review of it soon.  I am as slow at video gaming as I am reading!

What are some other fun but easy games for a NOOB?!  Thanks NERDS!

Favorite retro games... I had an SNES and N64 growing up, and a Gameboy specifically for playing Pokemon. My favorite games were Pokemon, Super Smash Bros., Banjo and Kazooie and Banjo Twooie, and Donkey Kong. Oh! Can't forget MarioKart!

I have a DS for playing Pokemon, and will be getting a 3DS for the new Pokemon games releasing in October, but I never bothered with the Wii. Not serious gaming from my point of view. I like first-person shooters and RPGs, so I have an Xbox.

My boyfriend just played through The Walking Dead and he really liked it!
