I was suprised, but I actually like this list. The only gripe I have is that it should be Mega Man 2 instead of Mega Man 3.

Wheres Blaster Master?
Mega Man 3 instead of MM2?Super Mario Bros, 13th and Zelda 1 10th WTF? With Contra ahead and what-what is that? Is that a Star Wars game? Pssshht.GamePro needs to open their eyes a little more.
Just for you.

mostly the obvious choices I'd expect from gamepro. though space harrier for sms is a curious choice. as is TMNT 3 and star wars

"Ballblazer" should be here, smoothest 3D scrolling of its time."Qix" should be here, it pre-dates "Tetris" and the puzzle craze"Xevious" should be here, it was the first modern shooter.
Also, "Tetris" should be #1. It's probably the one game on the list, I'm certain will still be massively popular in a 100 years.

Awesome, I'm glad TMNT III is on high on the list, it's my favorite in the series and always seems to get the shaft against II.

I actually think this list is cool that it has a few obscure choices -- I'm sure SH3D is better than Ninja Gaiden 2!

Misleading, I'd say. They should've called it the "greatest 8-bit console/arcade games"... where are Elite, Sentinel or any other 8-bit computer game?

I'm guessing it's because Gamepro was an American kids' magazine. I don't think they reviewed computer games.

Hmm..you know when Gamepro put out there special "Ultimate Game Guide" a couple month's ago;; they had a top 9 best 8-bit Games that differ from the top nine here. Their choices back then were:9.Contra8.Phantasy Star 7.Kid Icarus6.Metal Gear5.Final Fantasy4.Mike Tyson's Punch-Out3.Metroid2. Super Mario Bros.1.The Legend of ZeldaGuess they changed there minds.

The Legend of Zelda is way better than Metal Gear. Metal Gear was horrible.

Glad to see Punch-Out was so high on the list, but I never cared for Super Mario Bros 3, to be brutally honest. I've always been a Super Mario World man, myself. But that's not 8-Bit so, whatever. Legend of Zelda should be higher, though. I'm playing it on the VC right now for the first time here, and it's wonderful.
