Preferably NOT Pokemon, since this is a Pokemon forum and I'm sure a lot of us have grown up with Pokemon, as did I.

I grew up with Mario, Zelda, and in general just a lot of Nintendo games. NES and SNES were sort of before my time, the N64 was my first real console so to speak. Some of my later years when I knew a little bit more about what I was doing, was spent playing Animal Crossing on the gamecube. Good memories. I even remember naming some of our parakeets after townsfolk in the game, lol.

Dragon Warrior Monsters instantly springs to mind. I played this more than Pokemon when it was out. I had a couple of friends playing it too, so we were always just sat, engrossed in the game, finding new monsters and breeding more! :3

I still have the same game in my games draw in my flat! :D

Grew up with some good games- Zelda: Link's Awakening, Blades of Steel, duck hunt, donkey kong land/country for the gameboy, golden sun came a bit later but it was so good!

I've always wanted to play Dragon Warrior Monsters, though! And Monster Rancher ;_;

Games I would consider a part of my childhood would be Pokémon Yellow, Pokémon Gold, the Mega Man Battle Network series and the Zero series, Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door, and probably a bunch of other games I'm forgetting about. Those are all the games that I would play beside my friends, or talk about all the time with them. Good times ... : )

Jet Force Gemini, y'all don't even know, man. I liked and played other games, but that one defined childhood for me holy god just blowing ants heads right off. Green blood everywhere.

Also Paper Mario and StarTropics.

The ones that stand out for me would be, Sonic, Mario, Digimon world and Final Fantasy. I have most of these games still and completely love them. Still play them to this day but the consoles are starting to wear out which is getting annoying so trying to find new ones and some of the games I lost when I moved out on my own.

Rayman and Crash Bandicoot are others of note to.

Not so much series (other than Pokemon) moreso certain games which include:

Diddy Kong Racing
Kirby and the Crystal Shards
Crash Bandicoot (the one for GBA)
Banjo-Kazooie

... and that's pretty much it really. I spent a lot of time at my friend's house playing his Nintendo 64 when I was younger. Sadly, that friend doesn't even remember my sister and I but he was only around the age of my sister so it's no surprise. Still, the memories I have of playing those games are very fond.

Though I'm not sure where I played Banjo-Kazooie. I forget if it was at my cousin's house, at my friend's house, or somewhere else.

The original Street Fighter on PC was probably one of the first games I played, along with Sonic, Crash Bandicoot, NFS: Hot Pursuit on the PS1, crap like that. Oh and Power Rangers on PC.

I never thought I would ever find someone who played Jet Force Gemini before! I used to play it all the time with my friends in splitscreen, and we would have a great time. I know exactly what you mean by shooting the alien ants heads off and having the green blood everywhere. I miss playing it...

The video games of my childhood? I don't even know where to begin. I played lots of games as a child across the N64, PS2, and Gamecube. I don't have any specific game I used to play, but all of the games I had on those gaming systems kept me occupied for years. Sadly, most of them are gone now because I sold every single one of them a few years ago, and I still regret that to this day, and a lot of the games were completely addicting to play.

Naming some of the games I used to play as a child were:

N64
Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time
Mario Kart
Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask
Kirby The Crystal Shards
Jet Force Gemini
Perfect Dark
007 Goldeneye
Bomberman 64
Gauntlet

PS2

SSX
Need For Speed Underground
Maximo: Ghosts to Glory
Dark Cloud
Dark Cloud 2
Zone of the Enders
Metal Gear Solid 2
Metal Gear Solid 3
Devil May Cry
Devil May Cry 2
Jak and Daxter
Jak II
Kinetica (I might have typed this incorrectly)
Final Fantasy X
Shadow Hearts

Gamecube
Sonic Adventure 2 Battle
Digimon World 4
Gauntlet Dark Legacy
Super Monkey Ball 2
Luigi's Mansion
Super Smash Bros. Melee
Final Fantasy The Crystal Chronicles
007 Nightfire
Lost Kingdoms II
Super Mario Sunshine

Zelda Oracle games, played the hell out of these two. I remember replaying ages, in-order to complete the game fully, while my friend kept replaying Seasons. In my oppinion these were the two greatest Zelda games ever created.

Ah Nostalgia. I had fond memories of Playing Spyro 2. The Oddworld series were also a big part of my childhood. Rayman 2 I played but it was a bit meh. One game I wish I could get a hold of, even though I don't have a playstation though a emulator is always an option, is Legend of the Dragoon. That game was pure awesome. Crash Bandicoot, oh how I miss thee. I would give my left arm to play your games again.

Jazz Jackrabbit, brings back so many good memories. Oh my god, I forgot about this game. I can still picture myself playing this in Prep right up to Grade 2-3. Haha, this has made my night!
