where do I start with this arcade machine. To me, this is one
of the best arcade machines anyone can own. Why? Well,
for starters, you can buy one of these and then EASILY swap
out the MAIN PCBs with new games. Bored of one? Then put
in another. This system was designed with upgrading in mine.
This system was designed to play the latest and greatest
Nintendo Vs. game that Nintendo released at that time. It was
swap games. It was made to be changed. Because of that, it's
one of my favorites.
Most, or all of the games on the Nintendo Vs. eventually made
their way to the NES. However, almost all of the games that
appear on the Nintendo Vs. are different in subtle or not-so-subtle
ways as compared to their NES brothers. Not true with the Nintendo
Vs' cousin, "Playchoice Ten" which is essentially an NES in
an arcade cabinet. All of the "Playchoice Ten" games are direct
ports from the NES. There are no differences.
For instance, Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Vs. is BRUTALLY
hard when compared
to the NES version. SMB on the Nintendo Vs. features many
of the "Lost Levels" and the game is completely unforgiving.
frickin' hard! Some of the levels seem impossible to finish,
and I have yet to finish SMB on the Vs. It's that hard. So,
because of these differences, I love it
that much more. It's like a 1337 NES.
Another thing that makes this system so great is the collectible
factor. I probably have undiagnosed OCD and ADD, and this system
fits my personality just fine. ;) I love collecting stuff and
is the best for that. I am all about seeking out all the different
games and trying to "collect 'em all." It's very
rewarding and fun. Some of these games are IMPOSSIBLE to find
an awesome challenge to me. I love trying to find these treasures.
Anyway's, check out my Nintendo
Vs. Tech page for a mostly
complete list of available games and an explanation of how
the system works. I also list on that page what games I have
and what games I am looking for. Honestly, I am looking for
any game I don't have. I would love to have a complete Vs.
library some day.
Check out the videos of my games in action. Eventually, I'll
have a video of each game here on this page.
