I am really dating myself, but...


When I was very young, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Kaboom!, Pitfall, and Adventure, for the Atari 2600.

In my adolescence, Super Mario Brothers, Metroid, Goonies II and Kid Ikarus for NES.

I lost track of video games after that, save for a brief Half-Life phase in my twenties.

Zoo Tycoon
This reminded of Pizza Tycoon on PC, I played it a bunch as a kid. I had Theme Park on Atari Jaguar as well, which I think was pretty similar to Roller Coaster Tycoon.

I almost bought Railway Empire on PS4 last year. Haven't played any of the newer generation simulation games besides Civilization 6.

Probably zoo tycoon or age of empires 2.

Didn't have a lot of good games on N64 back in the day, because my parents didn't really know to buy the stuff that said "Mario" or "Zelda" on it. I had a Toy Story 2 platformer I played a lot, Star Wars Shadow of the Empire. I pretty much skipped a generation of consoles after n64 and went to ps2, played a lot of Jak 2 back in the day which was basically the pg-13 GTA.

As a young child, it was Atari 2600 games. I remember playing games like Centipede, Defender, Asteroids, Pac-Man, Breakout, Space Invaders, Frogger, Bezerk, Tank-Plus. My favorites were Pitfall and Adventure, I really loved Adventure it was a fun game.

Pong.

Actually, it was a knockoff of Pong that included a couple other games. One was a shooting game which had a stocked pistol which you would use to shoot at a block that would appear on the TV screen. The Atari VCS came out when I was 16 or 17. Not really a kid, and I didn't have one anyway. I used to play the one my younger cousin had. Pitfall by Activision was the one I played the most I think.

I didn't discover the Shin Megami Tensei series until Persona 4 Golden came out on the Vita. It's one of my favourite series now. They're some of the most well written video games which is exactly what I look for in a game.

Yeah, it was criminally underrated for a while. Glad it's enjoying a recent surge of popularity.

Star Raiders initially.
Dragon Warrior
Zelda ALTTP
Secret of Mana
Final Fantasy 6

More hours on those than all other games combined in those days.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World (built-in to the Sega Master System II console).


It was always there and pretty challenging. I don't think I ever finished it so was always playing it. I played an emulated version of it last year for nostalgia and still died somewhere in the castle!



As an older child it was Doom on the family 'IBM Compatible.'

I had a copy of Xenogears as a teen I bought used. Last disc had a minor scratch and it would freeze up every time at the same cutscene. Tried the toothpaste cleaning method like ten times and no go. Never did get another copy and beat it.

Parasite Eve was good too.

No Suikoden? Suikoden 2 was one of the best jRPGs of the PS1 era in my opinion. I didn't actually play it as a kid, but discovered it later.

Earthworm Jim (my childhood favorite), Pitfall: A Mayan Adventure, Comix Zone (how is there no remake of this awesome concept?), Ecco the Dolphin (still gotta finish this one, and The Tides of Time), Duke Nukem 3D (regrettably, because of the creepy sexual content; still a solid FPS despite that, but if I were to play a Buld Engine game today I'd go for Blood), Commandos, Men in Black: The Game (awful but I liked it back then), Alien Rampage, Resident Evil 2 (first big gaming scare), Diablo 2, Starcraft & Age of Empires 2 (I've always sucked at RTS games), Big Red Racing (we played it split screen and don't think ever finished a race, we just crashed onto each other like morons 'till someone exploded lol good times).

I'm sure I missed a few.

We also had a Genesis emulator and a bunch of roms. The Indiana Jones game was fun to play. I was obsessed with those films back in the good ol'. General Chaos also deserves a mention, so many 2-player laughs shared. Oh and the first ToeJam & Earl game, more shared laghs. Wish the sequel was an evolution of the formula instead of a side-scrolling platformer.

Jazz jackrabbit (or maybe the sequel), Metal Slug, and Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee. How could I forget about Oddworld?

Flowers will grow from these wounds.
