Even with the mind-blowing video games of Xbox and PlayStation today, '80s kids still reminisce about the Nintendo games we forgot we loved. But not just the popular franchises like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Final Fantasy, or Mega Man. Don't get it twisted; those game are great. But it's more rewarding to replay those obscure Nintendo games that weren't as well-known but were certainly just as fun. They're the ones we can remember the gameplay of but completely forget the name. Must be old age.

With the release of the NES Classic Edition, '80s kids (and kids who just wish they were born in the '80s) were able to replay some forgotten Nintendo games from childhood. But there were so many other classics that just didn’t make the cut. Whether it was due to poor sales or clunky game play, the not-as-popular games are the ones we hold closest to our hearts. Here are some of the best obscure Nintendo games that we forgot we love.
