    Remember that was the first game you could play and fight in.

    Arch Rivals, another solid game

    But I spent most of my time playing SMB2, Tecmo/Super Tecmo Bowl, Baseball Simulator 1.000, Duck Hunt, Punchout and Mega Man.
    Judging by your game picks, I bet we could have been great friends back in the day. providing we lived within a bike ride of eachother.

    After I moved about five years ago, I had a garage sale and everything we are discussing here (system, controllers, many games listed in this thread--including Tecmo) fetched a whopping $ 25.00. When my wife told me what she had done, I went into the fetal position in the corner of the room. :dflynn:

    Mine still works wonderfully, except for the madatory blowing and clicking, but wasn't that in the owvers manual?

    Oh yeah, I also have the power pad and, unfortunately, the power glove, one of the worst bandwagon inventions ever created for Nintendo.

    The megaman franchise was definitely a great investment as well. As far as racing games, I am surprised no one has mentioned Rad Racer yet. It was THE precursor to all that is racing now.

    Don't much care for Ebay, but in this instance, it worked pretty well. Found a game system out there for $25 with a bunch of games included.

    Came from Louisville.

    Had "Blimpie" inscribed on the side. :

    But seriously, I did get my system off of Ebay for about that price. Baseball Stars and Super Tecmo Bowl in seperate orders. Problem was, Super Tecmo Bowl turned out to be Frogger once I loaded it.

    Bummer.

    I can't remember how many I maxed out on, but I would take your same options and put it to the extreme. I would take the return to the one, run my guy as far as I could, then on the next down use the fullback or whatever to run back to where I thought I could still make a 1st down with the stud back.

    Something like this. 30 yd run from the one, lose 30 yds on next run. Run 20 yds next run, 15 next, 10 next, first down. Run back to 1 yd line, repeat. Ha Ha, shocked the heck out of one of my brothers when I showed him my rushing totals for the season. Had some games where I was playing weak defenses and ran for nearly 1000 yds in a game.

    We still have our orignal Nintendo with the original Techmo Bowl. We break it out once a year, Thanksgiving, and play it all day with a rotation of 4 brothers, and (now) 3 nephews.

    On the drive out to Tempe for the National Championship game in '03, we had a laptop with an AC power converter. The whole panhandle of Texas was consumed by a round-robin tecmo super bowl tourney using an emulator on the laptop. we had nintendo style gamepads and all.
