Take 5: Annoying NES Games

Silent ServiceMy latest Take 5 article for the Lansing Noise is available here on the Noise’s website.

The topic of this month’s article is the five most annoying NES games that are in my library. The subject came about after my wife and I got a bit of gaming nostalgia and decided to make a night of drinking a few beers and playing some old NES games. We got out some of her favorites like Battletoads and Mappy Land and quickly wondered what the hell we were doing. Twenty years after the fact, these games weren’t good at all. Actually they were quite annoying and we began to wonder what drew us towards these games in the first place. It obviously wasn’t the graphics, and the games themselves were barely playable due to the horrible controls.

Anyway, I picked five of the worst and wrote a small paragraph about each which you can check out in the article. Are there any games that you purchased back in the day that, looking back on them now, you have no idea why?
