What was your favorite games in your younger years. And yes, you can say Smash Bros. I know how you feel.



Donkey Kong back in 1982. I'll never forget skipping all of those 6th grade Math classes to play it at the arcade near the school. Ahhh the memories.

Plain old gamer :)


You know... My first DK game was Donkey Kong Country.

I think the games I was most obsessed with throughout my younger years were, in order of intensity of obsession, Ocarina of Time, Super Mario World, Rush 2, Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire, NFL QB Club '99, Battle Tanx: Global Assault, Stunt Race FX, and Rush 2049. Perfect Dark was another one, but I wouldn't say that was during my younger days. I've spent more time on these games than any other by far. I was only eleven when it came out. To this day I still play Perfect Dark, Ocarina of Time, and Super Mario World

It was all about arcade games, either in the arcade or through quality conversions, during my main gaming younger days (16bit, around about 1989 to 1995). I have thrown in a racer and platformer, just for a bit of variety, too. Therefore, my list is completely representative of this time period:
Midnight Resistance (Arcade, Mega Drive, on Amiga it was the 1st game I ever completed)
Chase HQ (just the Arcade on this one for me, none of the conversions captured its glory in my eyes....ooh controversial eh 8 bit Amstrad and Speccy fans).
Super Mario Kart (SNES, me and two other mates mastered this, so multiplayer was always amazingly close and competitive).
Strider (Arcade and particularly the Mega Drive conversion).
Contra III: The Alien Wars (on SNES it was like having an arcade quality game, that was never even released in the arcades).
Simpsons Arcade (on...erm.... Arcade, obviously..., Konami mastered these super colourful 4 player brawlers and this was the pinnacle of all of their work).
Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse (Mega Drive, some criticised its slower pace, but its level design and settings was literally sweet, i.e. pink sinking jelly. The graphics and animation were stunning back in the day).

I am passionate about retro gaming, from antiquated consoles to the continuation of classics. Obviously I love PSone, and PS2 retro games. I blast my ears to breakneck melodic punk, gruff vocals and nimble alternative guitar hooks. Tweet: [url.external=



Smash Bros. Melee. I first rented it in kindergarten, and whenever we went to movie gallery, I rented this. I rented it weeks and weeks in a row. I finally got. Now, I don't really play it because we have the superior sequel brawl.



Mortal Kombat: For the Fatalities and awsome gameplay!
Super Smash Bros. Brawl: The game I've spent more hours on than any other game!
Metroid Prime Trilogy: The Perfect switch to 3D!
Muramasa: The Demon Blade: Best 3rd Party Game on Wii and Great for showing 2D Can still exist!
Donkey Kong: Where would we be without Miyamoto!

My comment 11 "my list is completely representative of this time period" (1989 to 1995), needs a small correction:
Arcade Chase HQ was released in 1988 !
I am not even sure if its two main 68000 CPUs would be considered 16 bit.
