Thread: Old school gaming favorites

  1. #1

    Default Old school gaming favorites

    So, my nostalgia muscle has been twitched by recent threads. That means I'm curious to know what people's favorite older games are.

    Any console 16 bit (SNES era) or before and I'll even include older PC games if you want. Make a list of your favorites.

    Here are my top 12.

    12: Donkey Kong Country 2
    11: Super Mario World
    10: Secret of Evermore
    9: Breath of Fire II
    8: Illusion of Gaia
    7: Earthbound
    6: Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
    5: Super Metroid
    4: Secret of Mana
    3: Final Fantasy IV
    2: Final Fantasy VI
    1: Chrono Trigger

    It was really tough deciding whether Chrono Trigger or FFVI would be number 1, but in the end, I guess I did play Chrono Trigger over more times (maybe like 6 versus 5 or something), so that got it.

    Ignore the fact that mine are all SNES and mostly RPG's :P

    Wow, such a big topic for me, lol. I can't really list them in a rank (at least not easily), so I'll just put them in a general block, lol.
    Edit: Never mind, I ended up ranking them anyhow, just separately by each system to make it easier.

    From the Atari days:
    5. Pong
    4. Combat
    3. Pac-Man
    2. Centipede
    1. River Raid

    For the NES:

    4. Mario Bros. 2
    3. Roger Clemmon's Baseball (hey, quit the snickering )
    2. Mario Bros. 1
    1. Mario Bros. 3
    (this is skewed slightly, since I don't own/haven't played the original Zelda or Tetris cartridges)

    Old PC games:
    5. Jewel Thief
    4. Sammy the Snake
    3. Gorrilas
    2. Doom
    1. Doom II
    Honorable mentions to others that I played, like the original Warcraft, Wolfenstein, and Oregon Trail.
    Edit: I did not include Warcraft II, though that would have smoked the competition easily.

    From the 16 bit days (my 'glory years' if you will :P).
    10. NHL 95
    9. Super Mario Kart
    8. Super Mario World (I admit, I never owned the cartridge ><)
    7. Zombies Ate My Neighbors
    6. Killer Instinct
    5. Donkey Kong Country 3
    4. Mario All-Stars (if you can count this, if not, substitute in Mario Paint )
    3. Donkey Kong Country
    2. NHLPA All-Star Hockey (aka, NHL 93)
    1. Donkey Kong Country 2

    Sega Genesis:
    10. NHL 97
    9. Aladdin or Lion King
    8. Cool Spot (oh yeah, corporate shill)
    7. NBA Jam
    6. Vectorman 2
    5. Vectorman
    4. Sonic and Knuckles (plus the other Sonic games bunched in here)
    3. Sonic the Hedgehog
    2. Sonic the Hedgehog 3
    1. Sonic the Hedgehog 2

    Well, that's most of it, though I'm sure I've left out some major ones, sigh...
