I recently said the Super Mario/Duck Hunt was the best cartridge on the NES. I stand by that because I was never going to actually take advantage of the Power Pad. That all said, the (actual) best cart on the NES is this one, released today, December 1st, 1988.
“If you bought a Nintendo Entertainment System Power Set, which came with two controllers, a Zapper light gun and a Power Pad, then you got this three-games-in-one cartridge, including:
- Super Mario Bros.: the Princess has been kidnapped by the evil Bowser, and it is up to Mario and brother Luigi to save the day.
- Duck Hunt: in Duck Hunt you need to use the Nintendo’s light zapper to shoot ducks which your trusty dog scares out of the swamp.
- World Class Track Meet: this is a track and field game for up to six players requiring the Power Pad.”
