The Rob’s 25 Greatest Nintendo Games


Yesterday one of our sister websites, Arcade Sushi, put out a list of the 25 greatest NES games of all-time.  Obviously, this is a list that would interest me.  I was expecting to have some harsh criticisms for the list like I usually do with opinion-based lists about things that I’m passionate about (especially if it comes from Rolling Stone), but overall I thought Alex Langley at Arcade Sushi did a pretty solid job.  I thought there were definitely some overlooked exclusions, though.  So I have taken it upon myself to assemble my own list ranking those unmistakable plastic gray cartridges (and a couple of gold ones as well) to pay tribute to the games that shaped my childhood.  [Titles in bold indicate they were omitted from Arcade Sushi’s list.]
