Satisfaction in every way
When wanting to revisit the nostalgic days of our youth, many aspects of leisure come to mind, but none other reaches a level of fun as our old NES systems. In comparison to modern gaming, which(mostly)lets you decide game difficulty, NES games gives you no choice in the matter. When playing old games, I find some are not to challenging(Super Mario Bros for example) to games that make you go gray with frustration due to near impossibility(Street Fighter 2010, Silver Surfer, to name a few), and how cryptic they can be(thankfully we have the internet now, not having to subscribe to Nintendo Power). But a game like Contra is a nice blend of the best of both worlds: Not to cryptic with an acceptable level of difficulty(still grateful for the 30 lives code though), which to this day makes Contra one of the top NES games to revisit.
