    I consider these games to be in a tie for the best games ever made:
    -The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the past.
    -The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of time.
    -Super Mario World
    -Goldeneye
    -Punchout
    -Megaman 2

    I play through Super Mario World and a Link to the Past once every six month on the Super Nintendo. I can beat Zelda without dying. I wish I could say the same thing about Super Mario World.

    Countless hours, days, wasted on this game. The underwater levels were my nemesis.

    Probably my favorite of the mario series. Undeniably brilliant. Essentially the same as the original, with cooler gameplay, cooler bosses, and greater abilities. After my parent's divorce this was how my father bonded with me.

    I will give a shout to Super Mario 64, which is right up there with Zelda as one of the most epic video games of all time. I got an N64 when it first came out and I think I played this game for a month straight without taking a break.

    Yes. And Gizmos & Gadgets. I knew my simple machines like nobody's business.



    Yes. My freshman year roommate brought his N64 and we all played Smash Brothers multiple times per day...punches were thrown.

    I was a giant RPG nerd. I wasted countless hours of my youth on:

    --The Dragon Warrior Series
    --The Final Fantasy Series
    --Crystalis
    --Super Mario RPG
    --Zelda series

    That said, I loved the Mega Man games, and was fucking awesome at them. One night, my friends invited me over, handed me a gamecube controller (which, BTW: Worst controller in the history of video games), pointed at the screen, and told me to play through the entire Mega Man collection.

    I obliged them, and I believe in that single night I played through Mega Man 1-6, in one sitting. They were astonished that not only did I kick those game's asses, I barely died ever in those runs. I played the Mega Man games so much I still have most of the levels memorized.

    I think that was the moment that cemented in my mind that I am a big fucking geek, who clearly spent way to much of his childhood on video games. To quote Comic Book Guy: "LIFE WELL SPENT!"

    A number of my middle school faves have been mentioned, but my childhood favorite is definitely Rock 'N' Roll Racing for Sega Genesis.

    [​IMG]


    It was a racing game in which you could supe up your cars with guns, faster engines, oil slicks etc. that played sweet rock songs while you raced. So simple, but so fun.

    I'll add one more. The greatest computer game ever created. The Age of Empires series taught me more about history than any class ever. It's a little late for some of you, but fuck, if I could find my old cd I'd still play this game. Maybe I should buy it.

    The girl had the most powerful magic, but The dwarf was all about offence, and hands down the best. His jumping chop was unstoppable (thought the giant knight was a pain in the ass).

    My brothers and I used to hold Stanley Cup playoffs on Genesis for NHL '93-'97 or something. We would all pick a team, and then get assigned a team, which was our wild card. We had a permanent bracket all made up that we could slide our team names in and out of for each season. We even had a replica Stanley Cup (a mini one that was for the Red Wings '96-'97 championship) that the winner's name got etched onto.

    Unfortunately, I was the youngest and wasn't as good as my brothers, so my name is not on that cup. I got to the finals once against my oldest brother with my wild card team (the Quebec Nordiques), but lost.

    I always picked the Blackhawks. (Being the youngest, and last to pick Detroit was already taken by the oldest)

    I remember when they started allowing you to trade players, and they released a sheet with everyone's player ranking. We all had notebooks and notebooks full of rosters and stats and lines and pp and pk units and who knows what else.

    We also did the same thing with Tecmo. I was always the Buffalo Bills. Thurman Thomas and Bruce Smith were the shit. (Again, Lions were always taken by the oldest). I remember switching the RF adapters from system to system so we could do dealings on one while the other game was auto drafting or simulating games or whatever it did.

    Timesplitters 2 was pretty freakin kick ass in high school (Before my friends and I discovered XBox and Halo)
    [​IMG] We also played Smash Bros. Melee for hours and hours on end.

    There was a time between sophomore and senior year (when Halo 2, the pos, was released) that my friends and I would get together and LAN Halo every single weekend. We always had 4 Xboxes and 4 Tv's and would play hour long CTF matches on Blood Gulch, and so many TS's. God, I miss that.

    Also speaking of sports games.
    The Skate or Die series was epic, along with this series.

    That game ruled.
