Know Your Roots (NES Style)

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.

Know Your Roots (NES Style)

Postby Osi » Mon Aug 31, 2009 7:30 am

One of this things I love about you all is that we are pretty big Nintendo fans. So I wanted to start a fun new thread, and make a little game out of it. The object of this thread is simple: find an image of an object or character or background from a particular game, then link the image here as a new post using [img] tags. Points will then be awarded on two questions that are automatically applied to each picture. 1 point for knowing the game, and 1 bonus point if you can identify the name of whatever the object/character/background/level is. The catch is, if you answer, you have to pose the next question. So be prepared to challenge us if you know the answer. So the max points you can get from each response is 2, and you cannot answer your own post! I will do my best to keep the score tallied here in the OP.

I will get things started by making a reply and linking an image. Remember, you want to reply with 3 things to get points -and- to keep the thread alive :mrgreen: .

1) what game this is from,
2) if you know what this thing is, identify it (this is bonus points, not required), and
3) Post a picture in your reply to keep the game and thread alive.

Oh, you are being very nice to me. ;)

This is a Metal Slime from the Dragon Quest (otherwise known as Dragon Warrior in the early American releases) series.

This is a great idea, Osi!!! I wish I knew what Murph's one was though... looks like George of the Jungle NES... but I'm pretty sure that doesn't exist :(

It is Star Tropics and Mike Jones. The uncle was a doctor, Mike was a star pitcher, hence the baseball themed weapons.
