[Memories] Older games that you really loved. [Nostalgia] (25)

So guys, any older generation games that you just adored?

For me... I really, really enjoyed Final Fantasy Tactics Advanced. Must have used up 1000+ hours of my life on that game. I loved everything, the universe, races, social structure, weapons, culture, everything. I still haven't played FF12 or the original FFT, because I don't have the required consoles. :(

I bought FFTA2 just yesterday, and it's pretty enjoyable so far, but there are some gameplay changes I don't approve of, but I suppose that's to be expected.

...that's... that's not really older generation... well i guess technically it is, but i guess for me that's be the NES. anyway, quibbling aside:

FFTA was good, but i didn't think it compared to FFT. that game, plus Xenogears and Azure dreams MADE me buy a PSX, and when i showed FFT to my other friend who was also a rapid Nintendo Fan like me, went out and bought a playstation the very next day.

FFXII is fantastic, no matter what anyone says. the first little story section hooked the shit out of me... IT WAS THE EYES

I'm looking forward to playing FFTA2, but i guess right now i'm hooked on Etrian Odyssey cuz i borrowed it from my fiance.


my fav SNES game? hard to pick... Earthbound, FFVI, Kirby Superstar, Chrono Trigger, Twisted Tales of Spike McFang, Breath of Fire II (still have to find a copy of this dammit!), and on and on...

when i get disenchanted with how to gaming industry is headed today with cookiecutter sequels and cliched new series - i always turn around and hug my massive collection of OLD SCHOOL.

I had a ton of good (and bad) memories from Rygar for the NES. it is a PUNISHER of a game. playing it now, i can almost get back into the groove i had when i was a young'un. but when i get to certain stages, i'm always like - I REMEMBER you! Like some soul imprinting, the stages bring back memories.

i played that same game on atari lynx

on that note, chip's challenge

Chip's Challenge was great until I hit a wall.

I was going to pick something like Sam'n'Max: Hit the Road or just any old Lucasarts adventure game in general. But now that I think about it, Lemmings.

Ok, this one is PS time (not PSone but the much more older PSX games)...

Ever heard MS Gundam Char's Counterattack game? That time I was crazy with virtual on and this game make me crazy game like this types (thus, gets me played Armoured Core-the first one).

Also Contra, which is much more older game.

Spelunker was and still is amazing

Althpugh everyone hates FFVIII I still love it. I don't care much about the characters, story was cool though. But I loved the graphics and design, overall

11 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-07-27 02:02 ID:IwR9rH0K

Star Control 2 is the best action/adventure game ever made. Also the best written.

12 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-07-27 03:48 ID:9AYINF9a

loved it until the stupid plot twist that tied into using summons and their childhood. i stopped almsot right after that

13 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-07-27 05:03 ID:aaG76D8P

My favorite older game has to be The Lost Vikings not the second one or the one they remade for the playstation but the original one. that game was awesome the puzzles and the music I love that game

hey i have a question - a loong time ago for the ps2 i saw a game that had come out, but i forget the name...

basically you were a knight or something, and shortly after the intro you died or something, but you were still there, almost ghostlike. i got as far as them explaining that you could walk through certain walls, but some seemed to bar you and stuff... does this sound familliar?

it was an rpg, in 3d... seemed kinda drab colorwise at first...

Replayed Mischief Makers the other day. The boss battles still feel as awesome as when I first played the game.

Loom. One of the most underrated Point and Click ever, one of the best and most original Lucas games. Old but beautiful.

19 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-09-25 17:54 ID:YT1td0Ip

Phantasy Star IV
Revenge of Shinobi
Shining Force
Sonic the Hedgehog

I am a SEGA fag.

Mischief Makers and Snowboard Kids. Used to rent and re-rent those all the time. Lots of good memories from Ocarina of Time, too.

Link's Awakening, I had LttP at the time, but it was too hard for my child mind, so I just beat LA over and over again. Those were the good old days when I thought the death counter was a progress indicator.

23 Name: Anonymous Gamer : 2008-10-03 15:35 ID:ow0A0O9l

oh man, that's funny.

after i beat it the first time, i KNEW that something good would happen when i died zero times so i religiously tried to make that happen. and it did! and it was good.

Doom. It's the best FPS ever. The level design was great, the animation was awesome, the faux-metal music, the sweet weapons, the devious secrets, the copious amount of demons.

And then Deathmatch and Co-op over IPX

Custom wads to make it infinitely replayable, and the training to shoot up your high school. Life ended at Doom

Lemmings. That one is a classic.

Also, Realms of The Haunting. Shame it doesn't work on vista. Splendid 3D graphics and dark humor.
