NES Unwanted Games


Recommended Posts

Hey folks, I wanted to hear some opinions of NES game series to look out for that are useless to most adults. I am aware of Fisher Price, Sesame Street, Barbie and the Aerobics Pad games, but are there any others to look out for? There's a lot of fat to burn in the NES, same with Atari 2600, Coleco and Intellivision.

If you don't want to have full romsets and prefer to only have the cool games for each platform, I'd recommend checking out /v/'s Recommended Games Wiki, They have lists of the best and recommended games for a bunch of systems. You can use those list and then add your favorite games to have a smaller and packed collection.

For Arcade, you might want to check the All Killer, No Filler MAME Gamelists Directory script that removes the garbage clones, non-working and awful games for split sets.

Thanks. I recently organized my collections to US releases only which makes me super happy, and I like the completeness thereof. Except... the educational, workout, kids games. MAME on the other hand is a colossal mess. I appreciate your reminding me again how to organize this. It will be my project for the weekend.

The only person here who can possibly know what games you want to keep and what games you don't is YOU.

Speaking personally, I don't like fighting games or RPGs, so I delete them. Should you do the same? That depends on your tastes.

My method is as follows:

  1. Pick a system I want to sort
  2. Import a full rom set, along with HQ gameplay videos from EmuMovies
  3. Go through the entire set one game at a time, and mark as Favorite any game I want to keep
  4. Delete everything else, reset the Favorite tag, and go from there
