What games did you play in your childhood? Why did you play them and what about them made you like those games or even dislike them, cause we all had games we just disliked in our childhoods aswell, no?

Discuss :3

    Oh boy, big list. But I enjoy talking about my youth, here ya go! Click each link to see what the games are (via Wikipedia) if you're not sure of the title. But most of them should be easily recognizable.

    Pokémon Blue and Red, Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9 and Tactics.

    Rayman, Front Mission 3, Legend of Mana, Resident Evil, Fade to Black.

    Super Smash Bros. and Pokémon Snap

    For me, they would have to be Super Smash Brothers, Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask, Banjo-Kazooie, Star Fox 64, and F-Zero. Whenever I think about these games, they instantly remind me of my childhood. I used to play 'em all the time when I was a kid. xD There are plenty of other games, but for now, these are all that I can remember. I didn't dislike any of them, to be honest; I loved them all!

      Well, until I was about nine all I had for video games was my grandparents' SNES. My brother and I basically only played Super Mario All-Stars, Donkey Kong Country 2, Mortal Kombat, Top Gear 2, and Megaman 7. He was a lot better at like all of them than I was except for Top Gear 2 and DKC 2, where we were pretty much equally atrocious.

      I didn't like Mortal Kombat because a) I was bad at it, b) it was very violent, and c) I didn't get it. I was fairly neutral about Megaman 7- again, didn't get it and wasn't any good at it, but it was more colorful and interesting. I usually just watched my brother play that. We played Top Gear 2 in tournament-style competitions against our cousins, but it wasn't that interesting as a game lol. DKC2 and All-Stars were the ones we really played; we both sucked at the former but really enjoyed it lmao. The music was great and everything was cool-looking and the mechanics were interesting. For the latter... I was always better at Lost Levels and SMB3 (though we usually played that on two-player and that's a cooperative effort). My brother was better at SMB, and neither of us could ever figure out SMB2. So we liked everything but that one, because who doesn't like Mario?

      My brother and I always played together on that system so we never really got into the RPGs and other miscellaneous games our uncle and grandpa had collected for it. Dad and Grandma and Grandpa were pretty consistent about taking away our playing privileges if we got angry at each other over the game or frustrated to the point of yelling, so we got better at teamwork and having fun with it despite failing pretty spectacularly. Those experiences taught us pretty good lessons about how to approach video games, I think.

      maybe I'll come back later and talk about when we got a GBA lmao

        Very first game I ever got into was Crazy Arcade, which is bascially a multi-player Bomberman. I've also played Maplestory with my friends as well.

        Moving into a more familiar territory, I really enjoyed playing Super Smash Bros. Melee when I visited US from Korea in 2003 with a friend I made there. I also played some SNES games like Super Mario World and Link to the Past, but there were also some lows as well, absolute low being the infamous Superman 64 game, which was so bad, it still haunts me to this day.

          There is a megaton of games that I played in my childhood, so there is too many to name here. I will choose the best 5 that I did play:
          Bubble Bobble (C64), Sonic (Master System), James Pond 2&3 (Genesis), Puggsy (Genesis) and High Seas Havoc (Genesis)
          The reason I liked these games is because of watching my Da play them, so I decided to play them after he was done.

            I remember owning quite a library on the original PlayStation. FFVIII was a cool game alongside Metal Gear Solid.

            I don't know exactly when I'd place the cut-off date, but I remember spending a lot of my childhood playing Sonic the Hedgehog 2, Taz-Mania, Monopoly and NHL 95-97 on the Sega Genesis, Pokemon Gold on the Gameboy Color, and MLB 99 on the original Playstation.

            And though I don't own my original Genesis console anymore, I still find myself playing both NHL 96 and Sonic 2 on emulators, which just shows how much fun I had (and am continuing to have) playing them.

            Oh crap i thought i stated my childhood gaming life... yet i didnt... kill me now plz xD

            It all started when my dad introduced me to a game named Red Alert. I started to know the game and we played some LAN matches against each other, him thinking he would beat a little kid, however, he got humiliated by me. Then i moved over to, imo the best RTS game ever, Tiberian Sun. I played this game so much that i never had time for friends. But soon i stopped playing on PC when i got a PS2, then i played tons of Ratchet and Clank and Need for Speed games. I also played a game named Spore on PC which used to be fun, but it got boring pretty fast. I still play a lot of games from my childhood and i still enjoy them :3

                  When I was really little, we had a NES so I played Super Mario Bros 1,2,3, and this game called tiger heli. such a fun game.

                  Then we got a playstation 1. Spyro, and crash became my life. Also this rugrats game where you had to find these reptar puzzle pieces. That was my favorite game.

                    I can't number any much game that I played when I was a kid, but one of the games that I remember enjoy playing was Pocket Monsters (one of the NES bootleg game), I enjoyed playing as Pikachu while moving around and zaps or stomp the enemies. And one of the most memorable besides of that are Tetris, and Track and Field.

                      When I was a kid I would play any game that I could get my hands on, and still do. I remember playing Pokemon Stadium 64 and Pokemon Puzzle League the most as a child, being 3 or 4 that is.

                        I got my first GBA not long after I came out, so.. when I was 7-ish? My first games were Zelda: Four Swords, Frogger, and Donkey Kong Country. I had various other games after that, and I didn't actually start playing Pokemon until a few years later.

                        For PC games, I played a lot of DOOM, Heretic, and a bit of Quake. The latter kind of creeped me out a lot as a kid, so I did have some trouble playing it at first. xD Toontown was my first online game, and I didn't really play any others until the age of 11-12.

                        Those were the only two platforms I ever really used until I got my Xbox a few years ago, as we never had the money to afford a console until then.

                          My childhood consisted mostly of PC games. Of particular note are Aladdin's Math Quest (which was actually really fun) and other educational games, Sonic 3, a few Need for Speed games (one day, though, my dad cracked our copy of Hot Pursuit in half because the intro showed someone driving away from the police), the first two Harry Potter games, and Pajama Sam. Oh, Pajama Sam. I want that back.

                          Until I was 10, by which point I didn't really think of myself as a kid anymore, my only actual game system was a GBA. Back then I had Pokemon Crystal, Super Mario Bros. 3, Shrek 2, Pokemon LeafGreen, and Top Gear Rally.

                            Super Smash Brother's Melee.

                            I always chose Zelda, always got flung off the edge by my brother, always threw the remote at the screen, then I insisted we played Mario Party on the Nintendo 64. :P

                            Good times. xD

                            mmm, my first video game was Super Mario Bros. and Ice Hockey (which was a split game), in which I remember playing with my dad a lot, which was fun! A couple of years later, (or at least as far as I remember) I played on the SNES with my cousins in Jamaica. We played Super Mario World, and Super Mario Bros. 2, in which I was kiiiinda bad at it and always played on the first levels, ahaha.

                            Soon I actually played a lot more games, which I'll list em':

                            • Kirby 64
                            • Super Mario 64
                            • Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
                            • Dr. Mario 64
                            • Diddy Kong Racing
                            • Donkey Kong 64
                            • Super Street Fighter II
                            • Killer Instinct
                            • Mortal Kombat

                              It all started with Mario on Nintendo for me, then worked my way up to SEGA and religiously played Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter. Then once the PS1 came out I played pretty much everything I could get my hands on, my favorite game as a kid I remember playing a lot was Twisted Metal and Primal Rage. Then as I got older I played a lot of Tony Hawk and Final Fantasy games until the PS2 came out.
