I still have my Genesis and a dozen games for it.

My favorite games for it are Mortal Kombat and Sonic the Hedgehog (the original, the one that came with the system, marked "Not for resale")

Sadly, I own that game, but I haven't had time to sit down and beat it. I'm sure I will one day.
Haven't had time? You can knock out that whole game a quick 24 once you have "new game +". I've only beaten it the first time once, and I stretch to think that it might take 40 hours to beat. Then after you beat it the first time, you can beat it the second time in an hour!

Still, I don't have 1 hour to spare for video games at the moment, much less 40. I'd like to though, it's so peaceful to just sit in front of a screen and kill things. [Big Grin]

I agree. Tetris can keep me busy for many an hour even today.

Ahhh the zen of Tetris. For some reason, I am able to tune out everything else when I play Tetris. It's like I'm in the zone. I have a friend and we would play against each other all the time. He would try talking to me, tell jokes, make noises, fart, etc. anything to distract me. It never worked, I always whooped his tail. It was so funny because no one else could ever beat him, but I always could. My all time favorite game as well.

On my SNES I own the most fantastical games in the whole world ever - "Secret of Mana" and "Illusion of Time". The last one being the only videogame (apart from FFVIII, obvs) to make me cry. And, also, is it the same as Illusion of Gaia, coz there's a Gaia-dude in the save space.

Whooo for retro games!

Ooh, ooh, also, Tetris owns. And also Zelda - Link's Awakening being the most rocking monkey of all the Zeldas.

Hurray for threads on games!

Illusion of Gaia and Secret of Mana were both EXCELLENT games.

No one has yet mentioned Earthbound (I think), which I thought was an excellent SNES game aswell.

ok, I have one for you...does anyone remember the game show hosted by Alex in the 80's called Classic Concentration? I also liked that game for the NES. I am not sure why...it was basically a memory game and then you would have to guess the puzzle that was revealed. If you won the bonus round you could even win a car....a virtual NES car anyway. Anyone want the 1984 Chevy Chevette that I just won? [Big Grin]

I've never actually owned any consoles to play games on. But i used to play my friend's ones all the time.

Nintendo- Mario Cart- especially on rainbow road [Big Grin] , i liked Yoshi aswell

Gamecube- Soulcaliber II (? i think it's 2)That's great, just kicking the crap out of my friend Kate, but she plays it all the time & knows all of the special kicks and stuff, so she has an unfair advantage over me. I make up with it with brute force & ingorance, no finess involved

SM3. No question. Duck Hunt was OK - not that it was a great game, but it was a fresh idea. And I still stay awake at night sometimes, wondering how the gun worked. I should look it up sometime.

SMB3 was my favorite. I could sit for hours and play that.

Currently I'm trying out GTA SA to see if I like it or not. Don't really care for the Sims-twist that RockStar has put on it.

I can help you on the "how the gun worked" - one only have to know how a tv work: lines and lines of pixels lighting up many times a seconds. Then add a little gun with a light-catching device. By calculating the exact time the device "sees" the light from the screen, the game knows where the gun is pointing on the screen.

Now, point the gun to another source of light (like a standard ceiling light fixture, lighted up of course), "fire" quickly, and you will hit the duck just the same 2 out of 3 times. I wasn't a very good shooter, you see! [Big Grin]

The Zelda games are classic.
Having purchased my GBA SP, I've been playing Donkey Kong Country a lot...(even though it was originally for the SNES...and I beat it in fourth grade...) I love it. But...then again....I love most video game genres....
Yay diversity.

Seriously. SMB2 was my favorite, mostly because you could play as practically anybody. (I tended to favor Luigi or Toad when I was a wee Moz.)

Contra 2 is a big favorite of mine, too, as well as Fester's Quest, and the Tiny Toon Adventures game. (Hey, I was six. Fight me.) I wasted many a long afternoon on Dr. Mario, and Tetris of course.

Luckily for me, my NES is still operational, so I can continue to feed the addiction. [Big Grin]
