Depends on the genre, to be honest. What kind of games do you like?

Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, or 3 are really enjoyable.
Zelda 1 or 2 are up for grabs even though the original is preferred.
Mega Man 2
Metroid
or even Excitebike

All of the above are great NES classics that are available on the VC
though there is many more!

Just for you.

basically anything, i already own the classics like the super mario bros., the zeldas, punch out and kid icarus. What about the Castlevania games, I recently purchased Super Castlevania IV but am holding off to see if the earlier ones would be worth trying out before eventually moving on to it.

If you like Zelda, pick up Star Tropics. I prefer it to the original Zelda, and once you play it you'll see why it's comparable. Bubble Bobble is great, but I'd advise you to get the new WiiWare version instead.

Um.

River City Ransom if you like quirky beat-em-ups.

And I second the suggestions on some classic Mega Man titles. Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3 are awesome. Mega Man 1 is very good, but doesn't hold a candle.

I forgot to mention startropics, after finding this website and reading the review and comments about it i took a gamble with it and absolutly loved it, is the sequel worth a chance?

I haven't played the sequel myself. No idea why...for whatever reason, I just saw Star Tropics as a completely isolated gaming experience. I really should pick up the sequel at some point, but...for whatever reason I haven't yet.

Glad you enjoyed ST though. One of my all-time favorites.

Kirby's Adventure,it is very fun and easy to play. Best graphics on the NES,and it is the pinnacle of NES gaming.
Listen to me,buy it.

Most people think that Castlevania I and III are must haves, and I agree, but I am also one of the few who enjoy Castlevania II. I love the flame whip!

Yeah, Kirby's Adventure was awesome. Pretty long game for a NES game. Besides, the copy abilities are fun.

I don't like the Kirby games either. In Kirby's Adventure, the jumping/floating always felt off.

I made Kid Tripp! PocketGamer gave it a 9 out of 10! You should totally buy it now!

My two NES games are Balloon Fight and Elevator Action; if Taito doesn't start servicing the VCA some more I may break down and get Front Line as well, though I'm wary of the NES port.

Arcade ports FTW!

Get Donkey Kong 3, too. Woefully underrated gem few people got to play. It's one of my favorite score-based VC games.
