Comparing the Nintendo Entertainment System to today's video game consoles is like comparing your smart phone to a rotary dial desk phone. They are light years apart, but It's hard not to be nostalgic about the NES. To this day it has some of the most beloved games in console gaming history, many of which stand the test of time.

I remember buying the NES from Woolworth's in South Paris, Maine in 1985. It was a Christmas gift for my brother, but of course I knew there would be something in it for me. We had the Atari 2600, but this was the next gen console everyone was talking about, with good reason.

We played lots of games on the NES and these are what I feel are the 10 best games ever released for the Nintendo Entertainment System.
