TRN Podcast 038 – Favorite NES Games

Jason and Mickey return with yet another topic as voted by our listeners, our favorite NES games! First, we chat about the coronavirus situation and how it has impacted us and the sports world. Jason also gives a review of Sonic the Hedgehog and Dr. Pepper & Cream Soda. Then,we discuss the latest retro pop culture headlines in the Recurrent Events segment including:

  • ‘Scream’ reboot finds its directors
  • ‘Knight Rider’ K.I.T.T. nearing 10,000 supporters on LEGO Ideas
  • Spam Fries
  • The world’s largest Smurf gathering

In this week’s TRN Time Machine segment sponsored by the RetroDaze, Jason and Mickey blow out their cartridges and reveal their favorite Nintendo Entertainment System games of all time! When did we get our first NES console? What was your first game you bought with your own money? Did you parents ever get in on the fun? We answer those questions and somehow put together a Top 5 list from hundreds of choices. We also have a ton of listener feedback from Twitter to expand on our lists.

Finally, we finish up the show with next week’s topic poll which will involve movies and everything coming this week on The Retro Network and our Patreon page.
