I could see putting this on an eight-hour loop and having a very chill workday





Much better, I think, than the original arcade version opening

I just realized that video games don't really do that thing anymore where as soon as they load after you pop them in, they have this title intro before going to the main menu. They just go straight to the main menu after all the studio/developer logos now.

I also remember how the intro would usually play again if you were idle on the main menu for a while.

I think this is probably the best opening of any video game ever.

Wow, Ninja Gaiden and a bunch of other classics. Very nice.

No sweet music or awesome graphics to really speak of but I have to give a shout to one of my favorite game series of all time. Sad to say other than Operation C (Game Boy) and Contra Force (NES) I haven't had a chance to play the mid '90s and on Contra games yet.

I could only play this game occasionally at kind of an acquaintance's house, so it always felt sort of exotic



Short but sweet; tells you all you need to know about this bad dude



Perhaps the most tragic intro of any NES game



GREATEST GAME OF ALL FUCKING TIME
