A question to any NES owner

Do you recall all the wasted hours on the games and consoles of the past? Everything from the first Playstation and the Nintendo 64 to the NES and the Dreamcast is fair "game" here.

Please forgive the lame pun.

A question to any NES owner

Postby vhr2121 » Fri Dec 23, 2011 1:51 pm

Just got it on my mind and I got kinda curious. What accesories did you (or still do) have when you were using the NES?

On my case, I have the Satellite (Yes, that infrared 4-player adaptor), since I had Nintendo World Cup and Super Spike V'ball.

Also the Zapper (it came included with the console and the two in one games Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt. I think it was called Action Deck... I'll check it out on the wiki later) for Wild Gunman and Hogan's Alley (man I loved the second one, the first... not so much, lol).

And last but not least, the NES Advantage. Heh, that big controller, It was a very nice accesory to have. I used it when I needed "turbo" power (I'm looking at you, Track & Field... and you too, Contra and Super C!) or when I wanted to play a game a bit different... like arcade style, lol.

So... yeah, just wondering. Fire your comments away! Heh :D

I only have the zapper. Never had any other add-ons to it either... I was very young when I actively played NES though as well (I was born in '86... not even sure what year my parents bought it.. but there's pics of me playing it at age 3 or so heh :geek: ).

I do still have my NES... it doesn't work all that great, but it works!! I wouldn't even know where to start with those things. I do remember playing with that giant joystick thing at a friends ;) .

Only the zapper, and even then it was only because it came with the console. I've never really got into accessories. It was only in the last year that I used a NES Advantage for the first time (and it was rubbish :P )

zapper(bright orange one came with it but DOA so they replaced with the boring gray)
NES Advantage (i think this is what caused my sis to buy a 64 controller with turbo buttons when that time came around... or perhaps she just liked that transparent controller)


does Game Genie count? i wonder if this 'tool' led to the influx of cheaters and hackers present day

i also had some adapter that let me play super little 3rd party cartridges in the NES... Aladdin Deck Enhancer... all i remember was using it to play Micro Machines
