    So about an hour ago I was bored out of my mind and looking for something to do and while digging around in my room I found Lunar Eternal Blue for ps1 and I have been replaying it since.

    How about you? Any old time games from back in the day that hold a special place in your heart?

    Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. As far as I see it, I became a nerd precisely because of that game.

    Damn you stole mine. But besides Ocarina of Time, I would have to say Tetris. I still play that game constantly, in the early hours of the morning.

    Crash Bandicoot on the PS1, I love to play those every once and a while.

    Star Ocean 2, Front Mission 3 and FF6 still blow modern RPGs outta the water.


    And I played Earthbound not too long ago. Wasn't as fun as I remembered, but holy balls was it creepy.

    Star Ocean 2 and FF6 were alright, and I haven't played Front Mission 3. On that note, Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 blew FF6 and SO2 out of the fucking water. Most SMT games are amazing, actually, despite being "modern."

    Legend of Legaia has a pretty interesting Fighting System, and isn't exactly new. I suggest people check it out (if they can find it).

    I'd say it's Fallout 1 and 2 for me.

    Still play them, and still love them.

    Heroes of Might and Magic III. Definitely the best game in its genre. Also Diablo II and Starcraft make me wish to play them again.

    Chrono Trigger, first and foremost.

    Street Fighter

    Mario Bros.

    Mario Kart

    There was this one Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game... something about them going back in time. I forget what it's called. But yeah, these are the games that will never get old.

    FFVIII, the first RPG I ever played and still my favorite. I still bring it out every once and a while and go at it.

    Super Mario Bros. (Mainly number three)

    I still play them on GBA whenever it strikes my fancy.

    Final Fantasy VII.

    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater. (Yes, the first one)

    Mario Kart (For the N64)

    Conker's Bad Fur Day (Multiplayer - N64)

    Metal Gear Solid 2 (PS2) Some might not consider it old, but I thought it was better than MGS1 and MGS3 ('Epic story line' doesn't even begin to describe the series)

    The Duck Gun shooting game for the NES. <.<

    The Crash Bash collection. (My cousin and I played those for such a long time. Good memories :) )

    Pokemon. :|

    Mortal Kombat (Sega) I played it a lot with my uncles when I was a child.

    Super Mario brothers(SNES bundle) draws me back to the old console.

    You just can't beat it as a classic. That and Zone of enders for PS2.

    I'm still getting used to call of duty 4 right now, but those games were just easy to get sucked in.

    "It's a me, MARIO!"

    Classic

    I still play MGS1 occasionally, cause someone nicked MGS2 and I haven't got round to buying a new one >_>. I play the third one more though.

    I replay all the Final Fantasy's I own every few months.

    Future Cop: LAPD is funky for playing with friends and Legend of Legaia is also awesome. Ahh, the age of gaming where polygons the size of your fist were not considered ugly :p.

    Lessee...

    Crash Bandicoot 3 and Crash Team Racing. CTR's multiplayer was most amusing, especially when there were 4 of us. Good times...

    FFVII, MGS1, and Castlevania: Symphony of the Night. No explanation needed, I think.

    MediEvil. So much fun, that game was...

    Zone Of the Enders, even if it's not that old. I really hope Kojima will make a third one. Versus mode was great, though less satisfying in the 2nd Runner.

    I can't believe no ones mentioned Duke Nukem yet, I started playing those games when I was 8 years old and I still play them now.

    Super Mario World with the first appearance of Yoshi, the smaked addicted green dinosaur.

    Other than that, I play Legend of Zelda: A Link To The Past constantly. I'm still trying to get that fucking heart container at the little island at the top of the mountain.
