Videogames of the 80’s

Continuing my reminiscence of the 80’s, here are some of my favorite NES/Famicom games that I enjoyed playing for endless hours during my childhood. Oddly enough, I never actually owned the console or any of it’s derivative, “all-in-one” versions, but since I was very good friends with our old neighbors, we used to invite each other over and play until we were called forced back home.

Captain Tsubasa II Super Striker

Back in the Captain Majid days, this game was a must have; it had all the famous characters and their cool shooting, passing and dribbling moves. I’ve never gotten past the fourth match because the opposing team’s keeper was able to deflect even the most powerful of shots. In fact, there’s a cut-scene where, after losing by a third goal, Majid would get mad. Immediately after kick-off, the ball would get passed to him whereby he’d attempt a horrific super shot that rips past the net! It was exciting :P
