Here's a cool read from Retro Gamin Magazine's web page:  THE FIFTEEN MOST DIFFICULT NES GAMES (THAT ARE NOT BATTLETOADS).  Has anyone tried any of these games on the NES?

I've played a few of those, but never made it very far!

So, looks like their inclusion on this list is appropriate.  :)

Out of the ones I played:



Shadowgate was probably the most fun with the most replay value. I had written down the most efficient path and items for it and could make it to the Behemoth final boss in no time when I'd finished going through it so much. Never found the guide for it (or the one I'd made for Section Z) but would be a nice relic to have posted :13:

Awesome link 8)

Double Dragon III is the only one I have played on the list.  I agree. After playing Double Dragon II, I had such high hopes for number III. It was a letdown.

I grew up with the NES: and sure I can say ( Contra, SMB 3, Zelda etc) are my fav's.  But I really enjoyed a rare shmup call Gun Nac.  Maybe I'm a little late to this thread, but hey it was a fun game.

Very Nice - This game also had a lot of Blazing Lazers elements to it

Exceptional info there. Had no idea of any of that.
Just grabbed Holy Diver to give it a spin later :113:

5. Faxanadu
6. Gun.Smoke
7. Dragon Warrior 2 & 3
8. River City Ransom

I'm not familiar with Battle of Olympus.  What type of game is it?

One of the guys from Game Sack has a look at the NES.  Here's his video review of the system and several of its games...
