Luthor's Pick

Does this sound familiar? How about this? My personal favorite...this one?

If any of those were the least bit recognizable then chances are you were a Nintendo Entertainment System(NES) owner. In the days of my youth, Nintendo was the only way to go. Sure there was the Atari 2600 or the Sega Master System, but all the cool kids had the NES. With hundreds of games, more accessories then were humanly possible (C'mon, the Power Glove? How cool was that?), cartoons and even a movie, the NES was THE video game console of the time.

Now I know what you're thinking, what does a 20 year old(yes it's been 20 years, how old does that make you feel?) video game system have to do with Luthor's Pick? The answer is simple...

EVERY VIDEO GAME.COM hosts just about any NES game you can think of. Super Mario Bros.? CHECK! Metroid? Ditto! Kid Icarus? Yeah, you guessed it...THERE! When I first discovered this site I played for nearly 4 hours. You simply use your keyboard as your controller. All the games listed are actual versions of the games. I played Contra and used the Konami code(up up down down left right left right b a start) and got the 30 lives. This site is so kick ass you won't be able to control yourself.

If you spent your childhood days trying to save the princess then you NEED to check this out.




PS: There's a lot of lag on right now, so be forwarned. If something doesn't work the first time you try it wait a few minutes and try again.
