I still love Super Contra/Probotector on the SNES. I think that' still my personal fave, especially considering the immense hours I put into it back in the day!

I have to agree with Kaz, Super probotector (as it was known to us europeans) Is in my opinion GAME of the series. I still play the game occasionaly Thumbs Up

The original Contra for the NES is still the definitive high-octane action game of all time to me. If it wasn't for Castlevania III, it'd be my favorite game of all time. No hyperbole there. Smile

Too be honest I've only played Contra 4 seriously (never been into the serious a whole lot but I do want to now!) and I love the game though I haven't been able to beat it yet. So I can say that's my favorite for now.

The original. It is supreme awesomeness. I still play it when I'm bored. Super C isn't better. The Alien wars comes really close and then Contra 4

I really dig all the Contra games, (haven't played 4 yet) but when i think of the series my thoughts are always of the NES games first. (I suppose that means i like them the best Grin )

After replaying Hard Corps recently, it feels hardly like a Contra game (more like a Mega Man game considering that the levels are kind of insignificant compared to the bosses) but i still think it's great.

Super C followed by Hard Corps.

The first Contra was the best for me, followed by Super Contra.

I still remember when I was a kid, I saw my older brother play Contra.
I'm suddenly want to play it, and I fell in love with this game.

WOW DUDE!...
you've been really 'digging deep' lately, huh?! Great topic though...

PERSONALLY...
my favourite Contra is Shattered Soldier for PS2. The game is all sorts of ridiculously hard and awesome. Massively and criminally overlooked...

Then it falls:
2) Super Probotector / Contra 3
3) Probotector Hard Corps / Contra Hard Corps

Not at all keen on the NES / Arcade versions I'm afraid. Wouldn't mind trying 'ReBirth' for the Wii though (WiiWare)...

I knew some of you would prefer the NES version of the original Contra. That was the first Konami game I ever played. Back then, someone next door to my house had one, but I didn't. I came to try it out, but couldn't understand the point of it. I first beat it at a babysitter's house that I was dropped off the school bus at several years later, but without using the Konami Code; however, I stayed on one screen scoring enough extra lives to succeed throughout the game.

As soon as the Internet was widely used, I kept seeing the NES version as part of the children of the '80s FURIOUSLY crying for retro revival. I later noticed that the Famicom version, compared to the NA and PAL versions of the NES version is far superior, while I noticed that the arcade version is the true original version, and the look and sound of it feels more like Konami than the Famicom and NES versions. The arcade version may look shorter than the NES version, but it's made that way so players can have enough time to beat it in the game centers and video arcades before going on with their concerns outside of gaming OR before their parents tell them "Come on, boy, let's go!"

I haven't played all Contra games, yet, but I'm currently leaning towards the arcade versions of the first two Contra games, followed by the SNES Contra III.
