The Specs for the NES to us weren’t strong or advanced at all, but for that time it was advanced. It had an 8 bit processor, a 5 sound channel audio feature, and 2 KB or RAM.

Super Mario Bros. 3-Maybe the best Mario game in the series comes Super Mario Bros. 3. While going world to world collecting numerous power ups and items, trying to save Princess Peach.
Super Mario Bros.- The first game that was especially made for everyone’s favorite plumbing crew, Mario and Luigi. Even though Mario had appeared in games before this, it was the first game made for him. The start of the whole Princess Peach being captured by Bowser starts here.
Dr. Mario- Like the famous game tetris, comes Dr. Mario where you had to line different colored pills together, in able to win the game.
Final Fantasy- Was the start of the now 13 Final Fantasy games. Final Fantasy has been remastered and remade for many systems and handhelds. It is the ultimate rpg, starting out with 4 children who are the warriors of light. The four of them must travel around the world saving it from the evil Garland.
The Legend of Zelda- The famous Zelda and link story begins here, with Its overhead action adventure view. You must save the Kingdom of Hyrule from the evil Ganon, who is trying to steal the triforce of power. Princess Zelda sends out to find a brave young man that can defeat Ganon, and that person is Link.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Arcade Game- Not the first game for the Teenage Mutant ninja Turtles, but in your opinion the most memorable and fun for the NES. Fighting as either Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, or Michelangelo, you must stop the evil Shredder wielding all powerful weapons.
Mega man Series (to many to list)- Now you may be wondering that putting down “Mega man Series” is cheating, well its not because there were 6 different Mega man games for the NES alone. Narrowing them down to be the best one Is almost impossible which is why we put that down. In the 6 games you play as our faithful robotic hero mega man, while you side scroll your way through enemies to get to the end.
Zapper (duck hunt gun)- The Zapper was a
pistol shaped controller. Used in many hunting or arcade shooter
games. It allowed gamers to shoot items that cam across the screen
from far away or if you felt cheep you could go right to the
screen. It first came with the N.E.S. in 1985 gray colored, later
change colors to a bright orange.
N.E.S. Game Pad- This accessory might be
the most important of all accessories, it’s the controller.
The NES controller was a simple 3 button game play controller,
meaning that only 3 things were used for game play. 2 controllers
came with every NES, allowing the best multiplayer action to all
games…….that allowed it.
R.O.B.- R.O.B. the robot wasn’t an
actual accessory, but he was entertaining. R.O.B. had only 2 games
that were compatible with the N.E.S. What he would do was execute
commands that were taken from across the screen, in those 2
Power Glove- The Power Glove was an
electronic glove, which fit over your hand, while you executed
commands virtually. Any though the power glove had only 2 games
made for its special abilities, it had many game that were
compatible with it.
NES Advantage- The NES advantage was
basically the controller, but in a large square box, and buttons
enlarged. It resembled an arcade playing style, and was released in
the year 1987. Other then just the normal buttons on the pad, it
had 2 different features. It had the slow down feature, which would
literally slow down the game for you. With the second button being
a turbo button, it’s obvious what that does.
