4. Fighting the Seven Force boss in Gunstar Heroes.

It was literally seven bosses in one: A robot, gun, urchin, tiger, crab, eagle, and a beast with a spiked tail. In short, it made Bowser look like a piece of crap.

6. Knocking your friends into livestock and cars in Road Rash.

What made it even sweeter was the fact that running back to your bike was painfully slow and, well, just plain painful.


21. Not to mention the iconic and meaningless "All Your Base Are Belong To Us" intro to Zero Wing.

The intro was so random, which is what made it so entertaining. Plus it had so little to do with the game, which was actually pretty decent.

22. Playing games after bedtime and not getting caught thanks to this headphone jack:

Finally, a way to listen to that sweet, sweet Streets of Rage 2 soundtrack without getting grounded.

23. And, of course, surviving the epic battle with Metal Sonic.

No rings, a complex attack pattern, and the fate of Moebius on the line? Nintendo kids, you wouldn't have had a chance in hell. *drops mic*
