Best Non-Nintendo NES Games
A short list of what I think the best non-Nintendo NES games are. This isn't about landmarks and historical importance. This is about quality. The original Castlevania is an awesome and important game, but Castlevania 3 is better.
- Nintendo is exempt. Including HAL, Intelligent Systems, etc...
- US releases only.
- Single game in a series unless there is a really, really good argument for more.
- Ports will be especially scrutinized. Particularly arcade ports.
- Alphabetical order. Ranking would be dumb.
