Just saw this link on kotaku-- a 15 minute video with 700-something NES titles, allotted 1.1 seconds each. pretty clever. (http://kotaku.com/5670089/how-many-of-these-nes-games-can-you-name)

I actually did a lot better than I expected, but still not great. Anyway, if this isn't definitive proof that the NES was a great console, I don't know what is.

I didn't think 1.1 seconds would be enough time, but I was able to get a frightening number in the first two minutes alone.

The concept just reminded me of this thing (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXaleptB54c), though. It's not a challenge (it's all title screens, after all), but it does have amazing music.

Shoulda been more random. Alphabetical makes it easier for me to guess.

Not all of us can be NES geniuses, man.

15 minutes, though. That's a lot of games.

I did poorly on the KOEI history games and many of the sports games.

I laughed at 2:51, 5:54 and 7:50, 13:10 and 13:39. I wonder what these could be?

If nothing else I like that this video showed a lot of neat looking NES games I wasn't aware of before. Gonna have to play some crack ROMs on my haxored PSP. (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2005/6/24/)

Yeah, the games being in alphabetical order helped me quite a bit as well. I probably named at least a third to maybe half the games.

I almost sorta wish there was a crowd behind me as I watched this - only so I could realize how sorta pathetic I am knowing this type of knowledge. But alone, uh...I can agree that the NES was everyone's childhood!

That thing is golden.



Also, props to them for using music from Gremlins 2 at one point. That game has a fantastic soundtrack.

1. What in the hell, there was a Beetlejuice game?

2. 0:40 looks like Pictionary but that doesn't fit the alphabetical order. I wonder what it is.

3. Geez, how many horrible draw n' guess games were there for the NES? History books scarcely mention the critical paper-and-graphite shortage of the early 90s that made these games necessary.

Answers lie within. (http://nesguide.com/25/)

Edit: Oh wait, haha okay never mind I got it! Still, there are the answers for anyone who is genuinely stumped or curious about a game they didn't recognize.

I dug the Baseball section, since it gives you a bit of time to relax your brain (although aside from the obvious games like Dusty Diamond's, it's hard to differentiate between field views. I got every one that showed a plate view without trouble).

Also: holy crap were there a lot of great NES games starting with "N" (not just the obvious ones, but things like Metal Combat, Maniac Mansion and Mighty Final Fight).
