Yes it is one of the best action games ever made and has a very beatiful girl protagonist. I still havent finish it yet.
Anyway just now i started a new TRUE NINJA game that released today just one hour ago! It is called Ghost runner. It is a hardcore game where you lose with just one hit from the enemies like in From software games(darrk souls sekiro). It has a ninja protagonist and as you understand this game ia made for me. It is the first game from a new Polish game company . It has got very good reviews. See here some gameplay. I say it is a must play for all ninjas like me and all of my fans! See gameplay here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNHgUst0Zs8

I been messing with NES Castlevania on and off again. I really like the game a lot, but I have my doubts about whether or not I'll ever beat it. That damn hallway with the Axe Kights and Medusa heads just ruins me every time, and by the time I get to the Grim Reaper I have four bars or less of health and die in one hit. It's like I know what I'm supposed to do but I can't make my fingers react to what my brain is saying.

Kind of annoying since I've beaten Super Castlevania IV a bunch of times and really hoped I could cross this one off the list, too, but I kinda don't think I ever will. I'unno. I'm not gonna stop playing it or anything but I doubt I'll ever complete it.

HOLY SH*T, I actually did beat Castlevania. Wow, I first played that game when I was 5 and I never thought I'd finish it. Whoooooooooo.

Alright, I feel better now. Might play "Castlevania: Bloodlines" one'a these days, since I never played that one.

What I've always hated about the first Castlevanias is the way you jump. When your feet are not touching the ground you are basically unable to control the character and so you are totally exposed to enemies. It is so annoying. I once beat Castlevania 3... with savestates.

NES games are known for being very hard and frustrating. I don't think developers intended to make games that hard back then, but it was one of the earliest gens of videogames and they didn't know how to program enemies and areas of the game properly for gameplayers. Blows my mind how kids in the 80's managed to beat some of these games back in the day, you had to have a lot of dedication to master a game back then where you needed real skill and reflexes to beat games, unlike now.

Then again I beat TMNT 1 on NES when I was about 12, so go figure.

I beat some of these games in the 80's to early 90's. I think it's that we were used to them being that way. Kind of like now where there are so many buttons and commands to these games now as an 80's kid with just two buttons is like WTF at times. I don't play much video games now and probably last games I had were for the PS2.

Yeah, I remember it not even being on my radar, then I played it at a friend's house and bought it later that week. Good stuff. Then the Gamecube one came out and I was blown away by how much bigger it was.

Most recent one I've played was the one for Wii U, they've all been pretty good.

Yeah I didn’t really play much of the Super Smash games until I played Super Smash Ultimate on the Switch. Some of my friends convinced me to try it and I really got into it, now I’m trying the N64 version and I’m gonna play the other console versions eventually.

The N64 game came out of nowhere in 1999, originally Nintendo wasn't even going to release it outside of Japan. Back then people also refused to accept it as a fighting game because there were no health bars and you had to knock opponents out of the stage. Kinda crazy given it became one of Nintendo's best selling franchises and one of the biggest fighting game series ever.

I don't think anyone, not even Sakurai himself, could have predicted how huge Smash Bros. would become 20 years later.
