Sleepy Summer, Classic NES Gaming - Page 2
Probably still one of the best games out there, Metroid not only offered great presentation it also offered immersive non-linear gameplay. The entire game was played on one large map that would slowly be uncovered as players discovered them/unlocked them, encouraging exploration of the entire map. The interesting storyline and imaginative uses of the suit doesn't hurt either (I love Morph Ball).
One of my favorite memories of childhood video gaming is with Tetris. My parents would often send us kids to bed early so that they could play Tetris! Well, it is addicting, even though it's so simple. Just match the blocks with the empty spaces and form a solid row — sounds simple enough. As the speed increases, so does the pressure, and the ever increasing tempo of the music only helps to increase the nervousness. I don't think I've ever beaten Level 99 in Tetris, but some one somewhere out there surely has.
I know I've left out a LOT, but these are the ones that I chose to replay so far. I'm sure I'll add onto the collection as I'm in for another week of 90+ degrees.
