Weekly Contest: Who got game?

70 Comments

Does anyone else remember the good ol’ days of video games? I’m talking Duck Hunt. I’m talking Super Contra. I’m talking Ecco the Dolphin. Ok, not so much Ecco, but I think you know where my head’s at. With gaming on the BlackBerry becoming more and more popular, and some of the titles being incarnations of older titles, it lends some hope that these classics might just see the light of day again.

So, take a break from BrickBreaker and answer this week’s Weekly Contest question: What game from your past would you like to have on your BlackBerry and why? None of this Gears of War or Guitar Hero nonsense – please. We’re talking 8-bit goodness like ExciteBike and Clu Clu Land. This week’s best responder will walk away with the current Top 5 titles from BPlay that includes both Monopoly Tycoon and the incredibly addictive Bookworm. Good luck.

    i think that one of the most fun games would be oregon trail. the nostalgia factor would be huge and i think shooting buffalo with the trackball would be so much fun. too bad you can only carry back 200 lbs! lazy banker…. i hope he gets typhoid or cholera.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (old school, getting shell shocked CLASSIC)

    Master Blaster (most underrated NES game EVER)

    Bull V. Blazers (Tim Hardaway’s UTEP 2 Step was killer)

    Krad,

    I’m calling BS on your Level 42.

    Simply because it only goes to level 39:
    My highest score is 9998.

    *shakes his fist*

    hmm..so many to choose from!

    My favorite arcade game of all time would have to be the original Star Wars the arcade game in all it’s vector graphics glory. Using a trackball on the newer handhelds might make it more feasible now. And the Star Wars 30th anniversary would make this a perfect time to release it :)
