I'd never played Zelda 1 before today. Booted it and started a game. Saw a black door/entrance nearby. Thought to myself "Do you think I'm stupid Miyamoto?

Died a few times and eventually found my way back to the beginning screen. Entered the black door/entrance. "I see" I thought to myself, amongst other, expletive-ridden, things.

Ha, that's exactly what I did when I first played the game. I never really made much progress even once I got the sword though... maybe I should try to actually get somewhere with it now it's on the Switch

I was 8 years old when the SNES got released and on my 9th birthday I was one of the first from my school to have one. I didn't have the original NES, though, so I am not very connected to the original Famicom. Just rarely did I play the 8bit games with friends (because my SNES was cooler anyway and back then parents actually set a daily definitive 30mins cap).

So all these years, even with loads of emulators on my previous PCs, I have never actually spent time with NES games. So good job, Nintendo, to let me finally catch up!

First off, I am surprised that these are actually fun. But I think most of it is because it's so easy to jump between games and load save states. If I had to reset the console and blow into the cartridge every time, I would probably lose my temper with Ghouls 'N Ghosts.

Second, wow, the games are much harder than I thought. I beat many games on SNES when I was young, but I don't think I would have been able to beat Super Mario Bros. 3 even. I wonder if SMW is actually much harder than I remember and modern games just made me soft.

Thirdly, I think the joy-con works very well! Lack of D-pad is not an issue because these games only register 4 directions instead of 8. The lack of D-pad will probably be an issue with later games.

Gameplay matters.

@Switchcraft Nah SMW just isn't hard. Only some of the levels in the Special Zone are really hard, especially if you don't use tricks to beat 'em (e.g. blue Yoshi to fly over one of the levels.

It's been a while though, so I might come back from this statement if I try again today

I remember doing that too. I'd thought "Are you crazy? I am not doing a dungeon without a weapon!". This was coming off of playing Dragon Warrior 1 and Ultima: Exodus.

And people, the old men with cryptic clues really do give you all the clues you need to beat the game. There's zero need for a guide. Granted, without a guide of secrets map you'll be farming for bombs a lot. You'll also be leaving the screen a lot so you can use your blue candle again while searching for secrets. Only to curse as the hidden door you just found is some old guy who demands you pay him for the door you just busted... and takes all your rupies.

As it turns out, blowing into the cartridge wasn't helping at all. In fact it was damaging the cartridge. Similarly other 'tricks' like wiggling the cartridge while it's in the system or pushing down before the cartridge is completely in the system probably actually did more harm then good.

Eh, it's 4:50 (ish) in the afternoon on the 30th here.

EDIT: I'm beginning to suspect they wont add the new games for the month until the 17th or so. You know, a full month after the service launched.

To be honest they should probably be adding a new game per week or something...

Once they get to SNES, then maybe the 3 games a month thing will work out better. But yeah, for NES I do wish it was a bit more than just 3. As long as they don't take any away, though, I think it's pretty okay for now.

Yeah, it'd even be better perception if they just took 4 games for a month instead of 3, and released 1 per week. If they drop all 3 it's like giving me all my sweets at once. I've got poor self control for games when they're all in front of me, I need adult supervision

NES Open Tournament Golf is really good, pretty advanced compared to Nintendo's older Golf game.

It even saves your best plays so you can watch them over and over.

It gets the Yosheel seal of approval.

We have the original NES version of Open Tournament Golf. Never was much good at it. The finer nuances of golf always get the best of me.

Still kinda interested in newer Mario Golf games though. If I just devoted enough time...

I'm looking forward to playing Solomon's Key again. I liked that game, although I never got to play it much. I was too busy playing stuff like Final Fantasy or Dragon Warrior.

Although I have it on the Original NES, Super Mario Allstars on the SNES and on the NES mini, I never got around finishing the wonderful SMB3. With the save at any time option available, I'm gonna complete it for the first time, 25 years after I played it for the first time. Halfway world 4 now.

For me it still is the best 2D Mario. Enjoying every second of it.
