One of my favourite beat-em-up games on the original Famicom (NES in North America), Mighty Final Fight was perhaps one of the hardest games to find. Not only because it’s a rare 8-bit spin-off of the arcade classic Final Fight, but because it’s one of the select few beat-em-up’s in the 8-bit era that featured a leveling system that was mostly seen in RPG’s at the time.

Play Free NES and SNES Games On Your Desktop
Many of us grew up gaming on the NES and the SNES back in the late 80′s and early 90′s. I still remember playing Adventure Island (My very first NES game) in awe at how cool and colourful the game was.
Nowadays, popular/mainstream games consist of online, shooting, and mature themes that take themselves too seriously. Now I’m not saying that its a bad thing, but I do miss the time when games were about having fun, arcade-like experience at home with my friends on the couch.
Now as a student, I don’t have a lot of money to spend on buying older game consoles for my collection. However, I can recommend two websites where gamers can play NES and SNES games for free on their web browsers.
- Nintendo 8 – This site holds more than 200+ NES games from different genres within the classic system’s lifespan. As an added bonus, there’s a number of rare Japanese titles available for play as well.
- Snessy – Snessy is a sister site that holds countless SNES games across genres. Again, players can try rare Japanese games like Yuu Yuu Hakusho Final and Ashita no Joe; games that never got released in North America.
Although the experience is a bit marred with the absence of the traditional gamepads, using the keyboard to control the games still does its job.
Hopefully, more sites like these are created for all of the classic game lovers out there.
