Having seen me play Lylat Wars the other day (on my n64), my 10 year old is just in the process of beating it! Classic gameplay does not die!

What retro games do your younger siblings (or children, if you have them) enjoy playing?

I gave all of my old Sega Genesis stuff I grew up with a new home at my step-grandma's and the kids enjoy playing it at family get-togethers.

My son enjoys quite a few of them of course it helps that I still have my NES, SNES, Genesis, N64 and Gamecube.

And a few retro games on download services like XBLA and the VC

Some of his favorites are

Ocarina of Time
Guardian Hereos
Super Mario Kart
Zombies Ate My Neighbors
Smash TV
TMNT: The Arcade game
Final Fight

And a bunch of others that I can't think of right now.

Super Mario 64, Super Mario World and Mario Kart 64 still resonate with young kids today! I've seen it myself.

Oh haha. Love the sarcasm. Too bad those games arent a decade old yet. Hardly retro.

any retro game that's not hard to the point of dying right in the first 10 seconds of gameplay. kids nowadays only want challenge in multiplayer games and only to show off
now that I read this I realized it makes me sound like one of those "in my time things where better" old guy except I think things where far worse when I was a kid, now with digital games you can get classics and non-retail awesome games easily and for a somewhat reasonable price.

looking forward to Codename S.T.E.A.M.

@Guitardude7: Actually GTA 3 does qualify as retro at least according to the site. Which is any gen that isn't current gen counts as retro.

I know I dont agree with that but thats what the mods have told me in the past

@Tasuki Whoa Really? So that would make the Wii retro then. That's a bit backwards if you ask me. I count a game to be considered retro when it reaches 10 years in age. That's so weird they classify a game as retro as soon as a generation finishes. That would mean Super Mario Galaxy, Legend of Zelda Skyward Sword and Xenoblade are retro. That's so.....odd. I dont agree with them at all.

@Guitardude7: Yeah I know its weird and as I said I dont agree with it. Actually depending on your age retro means something different to each person. Some users around here consider Gamecube retro and I do not. Because of that a few threads got out of hand into what is retro and what isn't, so to stop the argument the mods just say anything not this gen is retro.

I started considering 6th gen consoles retro right when the PS2 got discontinued back in November 2012, but let's not go too far off topic or a moderator will close it.

Some great suggestions, thanks people. Various titles on the list my children have completed Zelda OoT and Banjo-Tooie. Also Mario Kart 64, Mario 64 and Super Smash Brothers have been played a great deal. Acting on the forum's definition of retro they've also played great titles like Donkey Kong Country Returns, both Mario Galaxies and New Super Mario Bros Wii. So they are not doing badly for retro!

I think Super Mario Bros. and Doom will be played and enjoyed by generations to come.
