What are the Twitter #RetroGaming Community’s favorite #NES games?

November 27, 2018 0 By nate

NES Classic Edition 2018Last week, I asked a question on Twitter – “What are your TOP 3 favorite NES games?”. We all have our favorite NES games. In fact, it is hard to contain it to just 3 games, there are so many great ones!

Well, as you can probably guess, people had responses ready for this one. And I told everyone, that I would compile the responses into a nicely sorted list, because I wanted to know what games would come out on top! With nearly 200 responses, we get a pretty clear picture as to which games people loved the most.

Below is the final list of responses, sorted by most to least votes. It is no surprise what games came out toward the top. More surprising were some of the less expected games. One voter shared their love for Gyromite, which is a slightly obscure choice as it was one of the few games designed for use with the Robotic Operating Buddy (or R.O.B.). Another interesting thing I noticed, All Mega Man games were referenced at least once, except for Mega Man 5.  Was that not a fan favorite?  The last interesting choice I noticed was that someone decided to include Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, a game that is fairly well know to be pretty bad (thanks to AVGN). But, that is OK – we all have our games that we love that others dislike.

Thank you to everyone who added their votes to this question!
