Because I haven't played many NES games and it is among the better I've
played. It's a primitive RPG where you control 4 characters who can either
be a warrior, wizard, cleric, thief, barbarian or ranger (+ a few more).
You have an overhead view and travel through cities, dungeons and the
countryside fighting turn-based battles to earn experience points to level
up so that you can fight more difficult monsters.

Yes, Super Dodgeball is one of the best games from the NES era.

That and Duck Hunt are pretty much the only games I ever replay on the NES.

The games that made my top 10 but not yours are Bionic Commando, Zelda II,
Castlevania III, Mega Man 2, Metal Gear, Life Force, Contra and Kid Icarus.
Not too far behind are RC Pro-AM, Dragon Warrior 4, and Punch-Out!!.

You MUST add Dragon Warrior to the list. I LOVE that game. It is,
without a doubt, my favorite game ever on any system. I've played and
beaten it more times that can be healthy. Dragon Warrior 4 is a close
second, as well, followed by 2 and 3.

I'd also recommend Final Fantasy. Any game that can spawn a series
that's lasted as long and remained as popular as the FF series
definitely deserves a place on the 'best' list.

Although at least some of these have already been mentioned:
Megaman (2 and 3 especially)
Ninja Gaiden
River City Ransom
Kid Icarus
Duck Tales (no, really)
A Boy and his Blob
Romance of the Three Kingdoms
Guardian Legend
Crystalis
Willow (so bad its good)
Gilligan's Island (joking)

The NES had slews of truly great games.

I'm gonna suggest an alternative title for every game you have there,
that way the games I suggest will still be within what you like you
play

> >1. Super Mario Bros 3 <-- Ummm....okay you win on this one. There are no alternatives to this one.
> >2. Tetris <--Dr. Mario, which I find to actually be better than Tetris
> >3. Super Mario Bros <-- Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, it's very good (and somewhat difficult)
> >4. Super Mario Bros 2 <-- Adventure Island 2. Doesn't have character selection, but there are different animals to ride.
> >5. Simon's Quest <--Faxanadu, which is just plain excellent.
> >6. Ultima Exodus <--Final Fantasy 1. It really is one of the best RPG's ever.
> >7. Metroid <-- Contra, or Super C. I prefer Super C because the graphics are better and the control is just a little more tuned, but either one is a defining moment for the NES.
> >8. Legend of Zelda <--Gauntlet. Not as fun, but a classic in it's own right.
> >9. Burgertime <--Donkey Kong Jr Math is more fun than Burger Time. Play Balloon Fight, or Ice Climbers instead.
> >10. Paperboy <-- Micro machines. It's not the same as paperboy, but you're just steering around a little car, instead of a bike. Plus there's boats.


Now for my own top 10

1. Super C
2. Battletoads
3. Double Dragon 2
4. Megaman 3
5. Dr. Mario
6. Chip & Dale
7. Duck Hunt
8. Mario 3
9. Punch Out
10. Cobra Triangle

My top-10:

1. Punch-Out!! (the greatest game ever!!)
2. River City Ransom (named Street Gangs in Europe)
3. Bubble Bobble
4. Super Mario Bros (legend)
5. Super Mario Bros 3
6. Athletic World (Power Pad Fun!)
7. Duck Hunt (somebody kill the dog, please!)
8. Excitebike
9. Pro Wrestling
10. Kiwi Kraze (named New Zealand Story in Europe)

Well there's one kind of a list. Punch-Out!! is the definite number one
and the places of others could vary. And there is much more good games on
the console.

I could list also some my Famicom favourites which were not released in
us or europe.

1. Splatterhouse Wanpaku Graffiti (the game series debuted on Famicom!!)
2. Sanrio Cup Ponpon Valley (volleyball with Hello Kitty and friends!!)
3. Kero Kero Keroppi (Feroppi puzzle game)
4. Don Doko Don (taito's bubble bobble kind of game)
5. Pac-Land (still hunting this one, have played it only with amiga)
6. Shuffle Puck Cafe (same as above)
7. Penguin Wars (have this on multicart, addictive little game. Same kind
as above)
