The Nintendo Entertainment System

The Nintendo Entertainment System—renamed from the Family Computer, or Famicom—was first released in North America on October 18, 1985 (1985-10-18) and featured 18 launch titles (known to collectors as the Black Box Games): 10-Yard Fight, Baseball, Clu Clu Land, Donkey Kong Jr. Math, Duck Hunt, Excitebike, Golf, Gyromite, Hogan's Alley, Ice Climber, Kung-Fu Master, Mach Rider, Pinball, Stack-Up, Super Mario Bros., Tennis, Wild Gunman, and Wrecking Crew. The NES was released in Europe and Australia in late 1986 and distributed by various third-party companies until Nintendo took over distribution in 1990.[1] The final licensed NES game released was Wario's Woods in 1994.[2] The NES was succeeded by the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, released in 1991.

This is a list of video games released for the Nintendo Entertainment System video game console, also referred to as the NES; its Japanese counterpart is known as the Famicom. This list is organized initially in alphabetical order, but it can also be organized by publisher or year of release. This list does not cover pirated NES games.

There are 709 licensed titles in the NES library in the US and PAL regions, and there are 113 Unlicensed games in the NES library. This makes a grand total of 822 titles in the NES library.
