  1. Y'know what I'm talking about, Atari, Commadore, SNES, NES, all those famous consoles, as well as the classic arcade games Dig Dug, Pacman, and all the oldies but goodies! So I ask you, Iwaku! What are you favourite old games from any of these older generations of gaming and gaming consoles?
  2. The first and second Monkey Island games for sure! :D (edit) Prince of Persia of course.

    I never had any consoles myself, aside from a computer. But I loved playing Super Mario Bros as well as Duck Hunt when I went to visit my friends and cousins. Oh, and Mortal Kombat.

  4. The Reimagining that's recently been released is fantastic too.

    Streets of Rage 2 was my super awesome jam back when I first had a Megadrive.

    Aaaaaaaah Yes! I remember going to the Arcades and just a bunch of money playing this fantastic Beat 'em' Up.

    My first RPG and still one of my all time faves.

  5. Does N64 count? Or is that too new?
    If it counts I got some.

  6. Still got my old Metroid cartridge for the NES. Also Super Mario Bros.

    I keep a thumb drive with an Emulator and ROMs of them.

    Grew up loving side scrolling shooters. So many from the SNES and Genesis years to recall them all.

    As frustrating as this game can be, it's still a hell of a lot of fun for me to play and has been since I was a kid. (Played it directly on the SEGA Genesis for a while before moving on to the GameCube and now my own laptop)

  13. PS One Castlevania Symphony of the Night - Parasite Eve - Resident Evil 2 and 3, Final Fantasy VII, VII and IX, Metal Gear Solid, DinoCrisis
  14. Probably Mario Kart. Older than that, I liked the original Sonic games on the Sega... not that I was any good at it mind you but I liked watching those who were good at it.
  15. Thought of a few more. Computer games, this time.

    Jill of the Jungle

    Monster Bash
  16. Too. Many. To. Name!
