Oh the beautiful glory days of the classic NES Nintendo Entertainment System. A time when the latest hardware technology didn't mean that much since really it should always be about game play right? Why do you think all of these Kickstarter campaigns are taking off when it comes to games that seem to look like a blast from the past rather than any run of the mill current day title?
It also explains why you see more and more classic hits popping up on online stores like PSN, Xbox Live, and Virtual Console. The days of the NES console will always hold a special place for me, as it was the deepest I had ever gotten into gaming at that age, and will not let go. At least not any time soon.
In view of that, there are a number of Konami games that I still hold dear when it comes to the good old 8-bit days. Among them are a few that are discussed in two videos from the folks at Gamester81. You can bet your last cart that a few well known titles are in the mix, including Metal Gear, Castlevania, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and even Life Force just to name a few.
You'll also see a name you haven't heard in a while, which is Skate or Die. Indeed, the company of Ultra games was actually a subsidiary of Konami that was used to bypass Nintendo's regulation of only allowing 5 games to be published per year. A slick move I might add. Take a look at both videos below, and comment on what you think should have been in or out of the list.
