Super Mario Bros

What other titles should I buy?
I was thinking of getting Mega Man 2, Gauntlet II and A Boy and his Blob

Mega Man 2 is the shiiiit.  Some other good ones off the top of my head:  Kirby's Adventure, Wario's Woods, Mario 2, Metroid, Deja Vu.

Kirby's Adventure, Super Mario Bros. 2 and maybe Legend of Zelda?

Mega Man 2 is, like, the best game ever.  I was also a big fan of Ninja Gaiden II.  Duck Tales was a very nice choice.  Also, you should get Super Spike V'Ball.
