  3. Even though I've already put some revised lists of mine on my own personal topic, I need to put them down here for two reasons. A.

Enough said, true believers!
  5. I've decided that the time is ripe to put some LIFE back into this club, so I'm going to review the best video games to ever come out for all of the various Nintendo Video Game systems, and I will do it chronologically, year by year! I'll start off with the year the first Nintendo Video Game system, the NES came out (which also happens to be the year I was born, 1985), and I will go up, year by year; until we get to the most recently completed year. If you want to comment on these games, please do so in a kind and courteous manner. Also note that this only refers to video games that I have actually played and beaten. So if you do not see a game that you think should be on this list, that's probably the reason why. Also, if a video game appears on a video game console that is NOT Nintendo, but can be accessed by a Virtual Console System, such as the Wii or the Nintendo 3DS, I'll count it as a game that can be on my list. Since there weren't a lot of games available in 1985 and 1986, I will combine the first two years together! With that lengthy explanation out of the way, we can get this show on the road! 1985 3. "Gradius" NES. This is a very challenging, side-scrolling, shoot them up video game! As can be expected from Konami, the controls, sound, and difficulty are all top-notch, and are still worthy of a video game player's time, even today! Try playing it on Virtual Console on the Nintendo 3DS, because the Restore Point option will certainly come in handy for this game! 2. "Ice Climber" NES. Unlike most platforming video games which encourage you to go both sideways or up and down, this is one where the goal is to go up, and ONLY up! Sounds pretty simple, but the more stages you get past, the harder it gets to keep completing them! This is definitely one video game where playing it via Virtual Console of the Nintendo 3DS comes in handy! If you want to see every single stage, than having the ability to MINIMIZE your dying via the Restore Point will save you a LOT of head-aches! 1. "Super Mario Bros." NES. It really should come as no surprise that this is the number one video game of the year; this video game SAVED the entire video game industry, by breathing new life into it! Many of the hooks found in video games, we take for granted today, but secret items, power-ups, multiple different stages, secret routes, and bonus areas were completely revolutionary back in 1985! And of course, everyone all over the world got introduced to the trademark skills of the Super Mario Bros. in this first game! That's why this game earns its rank at the very top for 1985! / 1986 3. "Super Mario Bros. The Lost Levels" NES (Japan) While the game itself wouldn't appear on American shores until 1993, as part of "Super Mario All-Stars," since the original game version is now available on Wii Virtual Console, Nintendo 3DS Virtual Console, and Wii U Virtual Console, I'm counting it. While it has the same game mechanics as the original "Super Mario Bros.," this game is a LOT harder! There are now gusts of wind that you have to deal with; red piranha plants that DON'T hide in pipes if you're standing right next to it, or on top of it; bloopers that roam the sky instead of the water, poison mushrooms, and bonus areas that send you BACKWARDS through a stage, or warp areas that send you BACK to a level you have already beaten! And the only way to see Level 9, is to not take ANY Warp pipes to cut corners in the game. If you have the patience to beat this game, you can consider yourself a TRUE gamer! 2. "Donkey Kong Jr." NES While the game itself has been on the arcade floors since 1982, the game first appeared on the NES console in 1986. All of the graphics, sound effects, music, and challenge from the arcade original is fully present here, and this is so far, the ONLY time where Mario has ever genuinely BEEN the villain, as he has kidnapped Donkey Kong, and his son has to rescue him! Even though there are only four stages, you can play through them again and again, as long as your lives hold out! But every time you play through them, they get a little harder each time! Challenge yourself, and see how long YOU can last playing through this retro game! 1. "The Legend of Zelda" NES While a LOT of players take the "Save Game" feature for granted these days, the option to save and continue, didn't actually exist until THIS game came out on the NES! Even before you play this game, you can TELL it's going to be good, because Nintendo made the first run production cartridges of this game, LITERALLY made in gold! While this is an eight-bit cartridge game, the sense of adventure and challenge from the later games are completely present in this one! And there are plenty of hooks to be found, even in this first entry! Boomerangs, bombs, arrows, shield and armor upgrades, improved swords, heart containers, magic transportation, and hidden secrets where bonus rupees can be found! If there is one game that can define the eight bit era, this may be the game that does the best job of doing it! I highly recommend playing it! / That's it for 1985 and 1986! Stay tuned for next time when I review 1987! Enough said, true believers!
