There was a post on the Main Board that compared Mike Richards to Mega Man and that inspired me to re-install my emulators to get in a few rounds of 8 bit gaming action.
Here's the point of this thread, what, if any old games do you still play? What were your all time favorite games/systems? Have any of you re-purchased the old hardware?
Personally, my all-time favorite system was Super NES.
Top 5 games:
Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Super Mario World
Street Fighter 2
Super Punch Out
I had emulators for nes, genesis, snes, and playstation on my last cel phone. Technology has come a long way.
For the longest time, I would still randomly play Final Fantasy VII and Final Fantasy Tactics on the PS1 & PS2 (thank you backwards compatibility!)
My all time favorite NES game is Bucky O'Hare. Released back in January 1992.
Also really loved Mario Bros 2 and 3.
I still have my SNES and 64 hooked up. **** at this point my wii is probably retro too.
Link to the past is still my #1
All the donkey kong country games
I also have a tv connected emulator for both pacman and Pole position. Nothing like having a few beers and going for some drunk driving!
Pole Position!!! "Prepare to Qualify" (in a muffled computer voice)
For those with Macs, keep an eye out for this project http://openemu.org/ it's said to emulate all systems up until the PSX/N64 era
I can't wait till this launches, a GUI front end for launching emulated games would be tits.. Hope they can patch in DS4 support
Have several emulators and still have my Sega Genesis. :punk:
Some of my favorite Genesis games:
Zombies Ate My Neighbors
Street Fighter 2
Streets of Rage 2
I make it a point to replay Super Mario World at least once a year. Has to be considered one of the all-time greats.
