We finally made it to another Friday and once again we bring you some NES fun to waste the rest of the day before the weekend. Today we take a look at a site that contains a lot of classic NES games you can play online.
VirtualNES.com contains hundreds of vintage NES games you can play online. If you’re old enough to remember, when the NES came out, it breathed life back into home console gaming. Here we will take a look at a few of the games they offer that will certainly bring back memories.
Super Mario Bros 3 which is a personal favorite from the 8-bit era.
Excite Bike was one of the coolest dirt bike racing games at the time as it even allowed you to create your own tracks.
Of course The Legend of Zelda was one of the first fantasy games many an hour have been spent on.
We’d be remiss if we didn’t bring up Pac-man since the game recently celebrated it’s 30th anniversary.
If you don’t like the default keyboard controls you can change them on the Options page. Join their forum and more…this site will definitely bring you back to the good old 8-bit NES days.
The site contains hundreds of different games for you to get on your old school NES fix. If you’re sick of waiting for the whistle to blow, this site will bring you back to the good old days when you had nothing to do but mash buttons all day.
