Fondest Memories of Gaming

9 posts in this topic

Speaking with many of you about gaming in the past, I thought I'd start a thread to keep the conversation going. What games from your past do you have fond memories of?

Final fantasy for nes will always be my favorite.  Followed by the dragon warrior series.  Then lufia II on snes and the phantasy star series on Sega.  I am a rpg guy.  I like that type of game. Of course, all the Mario Bros games are great.  I loved most of the wrestling games on N64.  My gaming days pretty much stopped with GameCube.  I never had a ps2 til later on.  

Oh...oh....  I almost forgot Russian attack and bionic commando.  Two excellent nes games.  And excite bike.  Yeah, I could go on and on probably.

While I've been here for every generation I will always hold the 16-bit era in the highest regard. So many great games and graphics had progressed to a very nice point by that time. Though I shudder to think what the bit wars would have been like if the Internet had existed at that time. It was dangerous enough on the playground. 

It was also a time when a game could be released on different systems yet be an ENTIRELY different game. Multi platform release really didn't mean "carbon copy but on a different system" like it has these last few generations. You could have had Friday the 13th on the SNES as an RPG and they would release it as an action platformer for the Genesis.

Coming home from grade school and playing Knights of the Old Republic. First thing that comes to mind. Also, playing Tony Hawk's Proskater 3 in the 6th grade and hearing 96 Quite Bitter Beings by CKY for the first time, which immediately fueled my obsession for said band, and also got me more interested in the drummer's brother, Bam Margera, who I'm sure you're all familiar with by now.

Gosh, too many...I'd be going on forever.

I can still remember buying my first video game. Roboto, by Bug Byte Software, in the local shop called Computer Mania, for £1.99. Still got it.

And that was in 1986 :)

California games on the Sega master system, hours of fun, could never get the hang of footbag, but did manage to hit the bird that flies over head for extra points.  Can't beat the old school consoles.

I always loved the StarTropics games for the NES to this day still my favorite game for that system, I never really understood why they choose to kill it off after the sequel.
