    I never played that one! SOunds cool though. I played Whatever that Mario Game was that came with the SNES and the Contra one and one or 2 others. Just never liked any platform as much as the original. Probably just sentimental.

    LOL! You know I originally stated this thread as 'Your top 5 favorite games' then went to 10 and finally 15. I almost went to 20 but realized if I kept doing that it would never end! It was really tough picking just 15 from the list of great games!

    Yes, finally some love for Super Mario RPG. I still dust my SNES off from time to time to bask in that game's greatness along with Super Mario Kart, Donkey Kong Country and Killer Instinct.

    For original NES, I would always play Metroid and Spy Hunter. In 8-bit metroid had a very creepy other-universe feeling.
