The 3DS is widescreen. Widescreen Nes games do not exist so no you can't make the games fill the screen.

Is their some way to make it full screen

Why would you want it full screen? Your game is gonna be so strached out and blurry that you can't even see what you're playing!

I actually do like DK Jr a bit, bit still: It's really, really slow. I found out how to play Golf, so I'll give it a try.

Super Mario Bros.- What could you say? This is the one that started it all, and so it only made it better that it's now portable on the 3DS.
The Legend of Zelda- It's really nice for nostaligic reasons, but the only problem is that the game doesn't tell you where to go.
Metroid- I was a little surprised to see how this played out similarly to Super Metroid, but there's not much sense of direction in this title as well.
Donkey Kong Jr.- I've only played the first level so far, but it does feel like a slower-paced game and DK Jr. is sensitive to tall heights like Mario was in Donkey Kong.
Wrecking Crew- Once I figured out what the objective was, it turned out to be a nice puzzler and it makes you think on a few levels.
Balloon Fight- This was one of my better experiences because it's fun and the tricky controls add to the intensity of the gameplay.
Ice Climber- I have this game on the Wii's VC, so I was aware of Popo's strange jumping, but I found that it handles much better on a handheld's controls.
Yoshi- I could see how this game would get addicting, so this might be one of my most played NES games.
Zelda II- I didn't feel awkward at all with the side-scrolling, and I was happy to finally meet Error. However, I've already been laughed at by Ganon.

These are just first impressions, of course, so more replays will help shape my views about them.

I don't understand people who say that DKJR is slow. :| You do know that he climbs faster when he's on two vines, right? (You probably do, I'm just making sure :P)

I found my experience with the game to be pretty quick, actually.

I'm working on a game that's coming out soon!

I played alot of DK jr back on Nes and got to like quite a bit. To me it's much more tolerable than the original.
Plus it's the only game where Mario is the bad guy. You gotta give it credit for that.
It's funny how Nintendolife gave the Nes version a poor review score but the Game & watch version got an 8/10.
At least the Nes game had some different stages and wasn't just on a constant loop.
How could anybody think a handheld LCD game is better than an 8-bit Nes game?

Everyone's hating on Ice Climbers which is something I never saw coming. So I played the "bad" game... I actually liked both the challenge and platforming as it brought superb satisfaction when I finally beat the level. Sure falling through the ground when you clearly made it can be very bothersome but otherwise every aspect of this game is great for what it is.

Oddly it reminds me of Balloon Fight. A lot.

Just for you.

It depends on a lot of different factors. The lower price, portability, and more responsive controls all probably contributed to the DSiWare G&W game being better rated than the NES VC version. However, keep in mind that a review is one person's opinion on a game, and you are entitled to your own. If you don't like a game that has a high Metascore or vice versa, that's fine by me and a lot of other people.

Exactly.

Metroid- While I'm sure the game's open ended world felt almost revolutionary back in the day, by today's standards exploring the huge map just feels almost tedious. Yes, you can find new weapons and make progress, and the fact you don't know what you're making progress toward is probably the point of the game. but it can get frustrating. For example, at one point I came across a red door that my shots wouldn't open, so I figured "I must need something stronger!" so I turned around, started searching and eventually found some missiles. After trudging my way up those vertical hallways, through the lava(?) pits, I finally reached the door again, unleashed a missile, and nothing. So now not only do I have to find a different weapon and hope that that is the one to open it, but also I have these missiles that I don't know what to do with. And I'm sure there are gonna be some old-school gamers laughing at my stupidity, but this game's explorative nature doesn't sit well by today's standards.

I'm not going to tell you just how wrong I think you are. All I'm going to say is: try five missiles, fool.

@Buster13 You don't even know that you need to shoot 5 missiles to open the red doors? :O This is my first time playing this game and even I know that! The best thing about Metroid so far though is quite simply... passwords. These can help you get to the later levels of the game and also unlock invincibility with infinite ammo and all power-ups without ever having to find them all. Passwords are pure fail aren't they? :|

Super Mario Bros. is pretty awesome, but Mario runs like he's on pure sugar or something his legs go so fast. e.o

Ice Climber's jump is annoying, jump up to a block to immediately fall through it and have to try again.

Donkey Kong Jr. - I fall off of a vine and land immediately to my death.

Mario & Yoshi is an awesome little game, but later on it's near impossible to win.

Baloon Fight is pretty good and actually quite addictive once you get going.

NES Open Tournament Golf is horrendous, I can't even hit the ball right, my best hit so far is 6 yards.

Overall the NES games are pretty awesome, hopefully the GBA games are even better.

People who say it's slow haven't played an arcade game for a long time. I saw the connections to Game Boy Donkey Kong and the rest was easy for me. The only thing I didn't like was that DK Jr. would die simply for stepping off and dropping down a very short ledge. Even that would be too lame for real-life physics. But it was really cool to hear the music that was played in the secret level in Donkey Kong Country Returns!

LOL seriously? I knew the red doors in Metroid took 5 missile shots to open at the age of 7.

I really enjoy metroid with a map :P
I think Fusion nailed it with the whole "Go here plz" computer. I can enjoy the challenge more if I know where I'm going. But my morale tanks when I'm getting my butt kicked and I have no idea where to go XD
Metroid with map= Still amazing.

Thaaaaaanks for noticin' me.

Totally agree about the map. Without one the game is more trial and error. It's no fun being lost.
Plus if you want to do a speed run you need to know where the heck to go. You can't waste time going in circles.
I just wish dying in the original didn't force you to start with a lousy 30 energy units. That was just cruel and not very fair at all.

I actually like Metriod more because of no sense of direction, letting Samus go with her gut and not her voice.

I have to start over because I'm stuck between the wall and the statue who gave me morph bomb bombs. This is what happens when you play Metroid Prime first.

Either I'm in a really bad mood or playing even great games where you have to start from the beginning is the worst thing about NES games. (SMB)

my problem with these games really is that other than the Zelda games and maybe Wrecking Crew, I'm not interested in playing them right now. (except for Balloon Fight, which I own already anyway)

I read somewhere around this thread (or another similar one) that if you press start+a in the "you died" screen you return to the nearest first level (example die in 4-2 and you return to 4-1 instead of 1-1).

I don't really like SMB so i haven't tested it :P
