    Chances are, if a ninja is in a video game, it's going to be awesome. Do you have any favorite classic video games starring ninjas?

    I just got a SEGA Megadrive today, and one of the games that came with it was Revenge of Shinobi, and I love it! It's painfully difficult, but that just makes it all the more encouraging to go on, as you want to prove you're better than the game =P Along with that, it's just a plain fun game anyway!

    Of course, the Ninja Gaiden games on NES are brilliant too. I think I slightly prefer Shinobi though. I also quite liked Legend of the Mystical Ninja on the SNES. Always wanted to try the sequels on the N64.

    Consider this proof that ninjas make everything better in video games =P

    I always remember SUPER NINJA BOY on Super Nintendo---

    it was an RPG, and I still remember playing it


    How can we NOT include the TMNT games??

    TMNT Arcade, and TMNT Turtles In Time!!

    2 of my All-Time favorite Arcade games, and games ported to console (NES and SNES respectively)

    I've played Ninja Gaiden for X Box 360 and some Naruto games, but I've never played any classic ones besides Mortal Kombat if you consider that having ninjas in it.

    Revenge of Shinobi is my favorite Ninja Video Game of all time as well.
    I played it when I was young on the Genesis, it was part of a game called 6-Pak.
    6 games in one cartridge, epic stuff.
    I did manage to get to the last boss, Zeed, but didn't beat it.

    About a year and a half ago, I found a Genesis for $25.
    Went straight back into Revenge Of Shinobi.
    It was fun to see all the odd bosses (Spiderman, Terminator look-alike and Godzilla?)
    Did manage to beat it and get the good ending, which honestly wasn't that good.

    Good times.
