I recently ordered Nintendo NES Top Loader 8-bit System via Amazon now, I am wondering if any of you know if 'Super Mario Bro 2' by Nintendo Nes compatible? Don't get me wrong but I did grew up in the 90's and now I'm trying to re-collect some 90's 'stuff'.

Also, if anyone is willing to name couple of games for the console it would be helpful.

Cheers!

Any NES game will work with the top-loading NES.

@Meowpheel Really? So any games I buy with NES label it is compatible? ... I don't want to waste $$ that's all.

Any difference between NES and SUPER NES?

The NES and SNES are different systems, and the cartridges are completely different. They're not compatible.

But the top loading NES is a NES model and any cartridges labeled for that console will work on it.

Heck, check the list on the NES mini that's coming out. Most of those games are really good.

Not everyone is a retro nerd, and this is not common, every day knowledge, as obvious as it may seem to us.

So please let's be a bit more open minded and accepting.

Skip urban champion. The guy is trolling you. I persons recommend wizard and warriors. The first one. It's a great little gem from rare. It's a fantasy platformer with a few rpg elements and its middle of the road difficulty for an nes game.

The top-loading NES will play every American game and even PAL games (if you don't mind possible glitches caused by the format difference).
(well, at least every LICENSED game. As for unlicensed games, Tengen games should work (I've tried the one unlicensed Tengen game I have and it works), but I've heard others won't. Possibly because Tengen cloned the NES' lockout chip but the others tried to brute-force there way past the lockout, which no longer exists in the top-loader.)

Wait, when you said by amazon, are you sure if it's an OFFICIAL top-loader, or a clone?
Clones should play SMB2 just fine as well, but will have trouble with games with some chips (such as the Nintendo MMC5 chip, most notably used in Castlevania III)
