    I really liked Mountain King. Missile Command and defender were pretty good too.

    Space Invaders

    That's the highest level of sophistication that I could/can handle.

    It was a bit before my time but if Ice Hockey is the same game as on the NES, then Ice Hockey. I had a lot of fun playing my NES when I was 5-9/10. With Mike Tyson's Punch Out!! Duck Hunt, Mario, Megaman, Ice Hockey and the rest.

    No offense to our teen posters here, but you do realize that the games listed were all released several years before you were born, right?

    I loved Baseball Stars for the Nintendo. That and Tecmo Bowl were the best ever. Atari games that I loved were Frogger, Pac-Man, and Pitfall. I have just recently broke out the old Nintendo to play a little. Good thread, Av.
