SimTower, Rollercoaster Tycoon, Starcraft 1, and Diablo 2 were probably the games that sucked the most time out of my childhood. Each of them is fantastic in its own special way.

Final Fantasy: Tactics, Tactics Advance, 9 (never finished to this day), X, X-2, 12 (it's not that old, but it was the last game I purchased and I have yet to finish it)
Pokemon: Red, lost Blue, Yellow, Gold, Crystal, Sapphire was the last cartridge I ever bought, Snap, sold Hey You Pikachu, Stadium 2
Zelda OoT
Evil Zone, Bust a Groove 1 + 2 (borrowed from a cousin but now play on emulator), Soul Caliber 2, Legend of Mana, Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage, Crash Bandicoot Warped (gotta emulate it now, but controls via keyboard is ebdrbcechbdb), Shadow of Destiny, Sims in the City...

In short, I like games where it's more or less open and I can choose what I want to do even if the end result isn't all that different (i.e., I can make my team the way I want, choose the fighter I want, go to this or that world, etc.). Nothing brain numbingly linear where I have no choice in customization.

For me it was Jak and Daxter, gran torismo 3 and 4, zoo tycoon, and tomb raider. I still play Jak and Daxter on the ps3 with the HD collection. I also played ratchet and clank deadlocked.

A lot of old DOS games were games of my childhood, like Jazz Jackrabbit, One Must Fall, Tyrian, stuff like that.

I also grew up with Pokemon and Legend of Zelda, with OoT and Gold/Silver being my childhood favorites.

There's also another DOS game I played in my youth that if any here has heard of, I will instantly think you are awesome:


BEST. POINT-AND-CLICK ADVENTURE GAME. EVER.
And an AMAZING soundtrack to boot.


That intro doesn't even begin to scratch the surface.

The game's available on Steam and D2D, so as far as I'm concerned you have no reason to not get it.

Spoiler:



The first game I can ever remember playing when I was about six (yep). Duke Nukem Forever was boring and bad but this one was WAY better.
My favourite level was and still is a tie between Babe Land and Duke Burger.

Anyone else play Mischief Makers or Snowboard Kids? Those were my absolute favorites.
That, and Kirby 64. I never beat it as a kid, but two years ago I finally completed it 100%.

I actually sparsely remember playing a lot on the N64, specifically Mario games but I can't get quite get my head around which ones. I also enjoyed FIFA from whenever I could play; I think the first FIFA I played was '02. Lastly, I played Formula games as I was getting into my 7th year of life...ah the good times. :3

Super Mario World, most of the original platformers on the Playstation, most of the Zelda's up to MM, and god knows how many games on my cousin's genesis.

I remember my cousin in Europe had what I think was an NES. I might have played Super Mario Bros. on it but I really don't remember it that well.

I do remember coming to the US and my cousin here had an N64, which included games like Banjo Tooie and Super Mario 64. I used to play those all the time when I came over.
