Once the best-selling gaming console of its time, the NES helped revitalize the US video game industry following the video game crash of 1983, and set the standard for subsequent consoles of its generation. With the NES, Nintendo introduced a now-standard business model of licensing third-party developers, authorizing them to produce and distribute software for Nintendo's platform.
In 2009, the Nintendo Entertainment System was named the single greatest video game console in history by IGN, out of a field of 25. 2010 marked the system's 25th anniversary, which was officially celebrated by Nintendo of America's magazine Nintendo Power in issue #260 (November 2010) with a special 26-page tribute section. Other video game publications also featured articles looking back at 25 years of the NES, and its impact in the video game console market.

Even today Square's and Enix rpg games for NES and SNES has a legendary status and games as Secret of Mana, the Final Fantasy series, Chrono Trigger for exemple is regarded among the best rpg games ever made.

Parasol Stars was also good, and Bubble Bobble (bit of trend there). I suppose Magic Boy, Turrican/2, Enchanted Lands and Gods are not to bad either. Mind you I'm hoping that Ninja Gaiden 3 you mention isn't the same one as on the Lynx, that is a terribly dull game, with nothing to recommend it but nice cut scenes.
I don't think the ST/ Amiga are all about graphics and sound at all, I concede the Japanese have always had the knack for a good platformer, but on any platform there are always a equal mix of stinkers and classics, and at least the computers had more variety. Some of the worst games I own are on the Megadrive (also some greats of course, I always was partial to the original Streets of Rage, particularly that elevator level at the end, where you were literally up to your neck in baddies, great music as well).
