10 Examples of Bootlegged NES Games

NES Bootlegs

I guess a person will always be loyal to the game system that have the fondest memories of.  And that usually has something to do with their youth. For me?  It’s clearly the Nintendo Entertainment System.  My all time best moments in gaming definitely came with this system and I could easily talk about it for hours.

What was also awesome was that feeling I got when I just received the game and looked at the box.  The cover said a lot and even that first intro moment when I turned the game on gave me a glimpse of what was going to happen:  a great time.

But what if those covers were more accurate?  What if they depicted what the images really looked like?  You’ll see what I mean with the following 10 examples of “bootlegged” NES games.
