I don't have much in the way of NES finds, but I got a little bit to share recently! My good friends are moving away, so I got a free system and the 2 games they didn't sell (SMB 2 and Zelda). The remaining carts are from a previous coworker, cost me about $10 and they're in great shape.

Other than a copy of Earthbound Zero and the N8 Everdrive, this is the extent of my US collection, sadly...  Cry

I've been going a different route, in fact recently I have been selling off most my NES stuff because imports are just so much more fun to collect. At this point I've narrowed my NES collection down to just the essentials. (Games that weren't released on Famicom, games with enough differences that I want to keep, and Kirby's Adventure... too much sentimental value to ever let go of that one)

That's what I did in December, sold off most of my NES collection for the very reason that you stated.  My brother kept the good stuff that he wanted, and of course we (he and I) kept all of our childhood games, no way we are getting rid of those (and these were all the original games we had as children).  But the rest of the stuff, if I have a Famicom version, for the most part it got sold.

Please check out my gaming blog, FC Game Land, for information and my own personal thoughts on Famicom and other imported games.  I will also list items for sale on there, for those who are interested.

@Nightstar699: I can understand all the other games I see there, but what's the deal with Kabuki Quantum Fighter? The only difference to Jigoku Gokuraku Maru that I know of (other than the language) is that in Kabuki there's the two-frame animation of the main guy in the post-credits sound test.

I've got a handful of NES games I want to get, for the same reasons you have those. In fact, some of those games are the ones I want to get.

The reason I still have Kabuki Quantum Fighter is how different the artstyle in cutscenes is from Jigoku Gokuraku Maru. I honestly prefer the more anime-style drawings in KQF as opposed to the more realistic ones in JGM. (Also, there's a couple other very minor coloring differences between the 2 games, such as in the 1-Up icons and the 5th boss)

I'm guessing Darkwing Duck is on your list? I'll admit that someday I may re-buy CIB copies of the loose NES carts you see here, but that won't be for a while, after my FC collection is finished.

Those are all solid choices, Nightstar... except that Karate Kid. I never cared for that one.

Also, @ Yelir

Legend of Zelda and Super Mario Bros 2 are awesome games to get for free. Congratulations.

Thank you Jackson. I like Karate Kid for a couple reasons:

1. It always felt like a spiritual successor to Spartan X to me

2. I really like the movie.

Mainly the first reason though, but I admit it isn't for everyone.

Oh, I didn't know the cutscenes have a different art style between versions. A bit like Black Manta/Saizou, then.

Darkwing Duck is one, the two GI Joe games are others...Power Blade is a solid maybe. Already have Kick Master.

Hm, what makes you put Power Blade in the "maybe" category? I think of it as being probably the best NES-only release, apart from maybe the first G.I. Joe.

Better than Flintstones 2?  I dunno, I wouldn't really put Power Blade in the NES only list to be honest, I know it's an improvement on Power Blazer but yeah, it's an addendum in my eyes.

Yeah, Flintstones 2 is great (makes very creative use of the difference in Fred's and Barney's abilities), but man are Power Blade and G.I. Joe two of the most kick ass games I've ever had the pleasure of popping into my NES. KickMaster is great too. G.I. Joe: Atlantis Factor is okay... feels like a huge downgrade from the first G.I. Joe, but retains the impressive amount of great boss battles from the first game.

I dunno, I wouldn't really put Power Blade in the NES only list to be honest, I know it's an improvement on Power Blazer but yeah, it's an addendum in my eyes

Gotta disagree here, as someone who owns and has beaten both (dozens of times for Power Blade, once for Blazer) they're entirely different games. It isn't just Power Blazer with a different character sprite, the stages are completely and 100% different, the only things that are kept from Power Blazer is the music, and a bit of the graphics. Besides that they're two separate games, it'd be like saying SMB2J is the same game as the original SMB... in fact, even those are more similar to each other than Blade is to Blazer.

...Man, writing this makes me want to give Power Blazer another shot considering I never popped it in again after beating it once. It's not a particularly pleasant game, though I remember the ending graphics being really cool.

I don't know, Power Blade just hasn't really come across as a must-have for some reason.
