Lol wait what? Wouldn't I want to pick Kid Icarus then :D

Well I love both Metroid and Kid Icarus, its just hard to decide. The question is, which one is better to play in this current time. I know a lot of retro games just aren't fun like they used to when you play them now. Which one holds up best by today's standards?

Edit : I should say I just love Metroid, since I've have all three Metroid Prime games. I really want to experience the classic Metroid games such as possibly the original and obviously Super Metroid but like I said, I'm currently buying NES games at the moment. I have no prior experience with Kid Icarus besides me buying Kid Icarus Uprising today :p

@Emaan1: Kid Icarus for NES will kick your tail at first but if you can persevere it will get easier and you will discover just how great it is! Metroid for NES is another great game. A head's up though if you have never played it; when you restart after you die Samus has minimal energy and there is no in-game map so it is for sure challenging! It's anti-everything that makes the modern games of today easy and convenient compared to the past. Anyway they are two my favorite NES games no doubt.

@paburrows : I've only bought three TG16 games for the VC, but I've enjoyed them all to varying degrees.

Bomberman '93 - It's Bomberman. And if you've somehow never played a Bomberman game before, you're probably just better off getting '94.
Neutopia - A shameless rip-off of the original Zelda, but there are worse games to steal from.
Ys Book I & II - A great action RPG that's more than the sum of its individual parts.

Thanks! I've played Y's before for the Master System, I'm assuming that this is way better? I vaguely remember renting the 8-bit NES Bomberman way back. I'll have to try all of these.

I still can't decide, since apparently they are both infamous for being so hard D:

Is, "Vectorman," any good guys? I really enjoyed Metroid, and I recently downloaded, "Super Metroid," as well. Which for me, just screams, "Nintendo!" This is also the case with, "Vectorman". For me, it just screams, "Sega!" :P

Somebody, anybody?

@Emaan, I would suggest downloading Metroid. Since you just purchased Uprising, and should have enough Kid Icarus goodness for awhile. You could always download Kid Icarus sometime in the future.

Yeah that's true. I still feel like Metroid is going to be notoriously difficult for me :O

Metroid can be a little difficult at first, but after you find a few upgrades it becomes a lot easier. If you're having trouble finding your way around planet Zebes, there are overworld maps at GameFAQs you can print. Which will make it a hell of a lot easier to find those upgrades. :P

Sounds good, I might be leaning towards Metroid now. Then as far as Metroid goes, once I start buying SNES games, Super Metroid is obviously a very quick addition to my list of virtual console games. Is Metroid II : Return of Samus worth it? I feel like that one is way too outdated.

The turbografx is my better choice when i want to download games, it has a lot of exclusives. My recommendations are:

Lords of Thunder - epic, excellent.
Soldier Blade- very addictive, i want to buy all 16 bit Star Soldier games.
Super adventure island- better than the original, very funny and challengeable.
Bomberman 93- 94- excellent multiplayer with 5 people!
and before Irem dissapears i recommend a lot Legend of Hero Tonma, it is very fun and with a lot of attacks.

Hey guys, I'm back again. I just can't seem to get enough of these retro revivals. I'm currently trying to decide between either downloading StarTropics 1 & 2 or Megaman 2 & 5. I've already downloaded Megaman 3, if you happen to be asking yourself why I'd have these two specific entries on the scales.

@G4L: The classics are the best no doubt! So yeah, I would say if you are up for a good challenge that has a distinctly salti*NES* flavor then try out StarTropics. You cannot go diagonally in the first game so that takes a little getting used to but just a great game overall. If you are itching for some more Mega Man madness then go for the Mega Man's, you cannot go wrong. Just remember that in 2 you don't have the slip 'n slide move like in 3, but 2 is still my favorite of the Mega Man bunch.

Which is the better version of, "Solomon's Key," the NES or VC Arcade version? Also, is the gameplay found in, "Chew Man Fu," as enjoyable as it appears?

I have Chew Man Fu. Is a puzzle game where 2 kids kick balls to destroy enemies. It has walls to break and each color has different abilities. The objetive is to put the balls in their respective color base. It is a good game. I give it a 7 but if you play it with another friend it gets a 8 for me.

get metroid 2. it's supposed to be an improvement over the first game as it has a map, which the first one didn't have. gameplay is very solid throughout and it still holds up.

I'm not sure about the way Metroid II : Return of Samus looks though. I love retro graphics, but some Game Boy games really don't look good now.

I'm fairly sure at least a few of my fellow NintendoLife members have downloaded, "Solomon's Key," so can anyone please inform me if the NES or the VC Arcade version is the most definitive?

@Emaan1, how enjoyable have you found Metroid to be my friend? By the way, I owned, "Metroid II: Return of Samus," when I was 10 years of age, and I believe I enjoyed it more than I enjoyed Metroid on the VC. I don't happen to own a 3DS, or I would've downloaded it myself by now.

I'm just gonna throw a general recommendation to platformer fans to get Doki Doki Milon. It's such a great and underrated game.
