Games that stole my heart forever:

SEGA genesis:

sonic 1 and 2
Ecco the dolphin
Golden axe
Super rocket knight adventure
Jurassic park (just playing with the raptor for sheer fun)
Zero Wing (few knew the legend to be born)
Shinobi
After burner 2

Super nintendo:

Legend of zelda : a link to the past
Secret of mana
Top gear
Super mario world
Parodius

Game boy classic

Mario land 1
Mario land 2
Burai fighter
Terminator 2
Tetris (actually finished the game completely haha )

Classic pc stuff:

Indiana jones and the fate of atlantis
Lemmings
Silk wars

might add more once more pop up in my memories Smile

I still think fondly of the old text-games from the Spectrum, like The Hobbit. More recently, the old platformers from the C64, Turrican in particular, which I think still has to be the best platform game ever created, and early PC games like Lemmings and Commander Keen. RPGs like Richard Garriot's Ultima series (which is still going I think), while visually they may not hold up anymore, but they still kick the pants off most modern RPGs for plot and storytelling..

You are forgetting Dynamite Headdy for the sega. That is a legend of a game.

With the magic of emulators, all these games have now returned to us, now if only some genius would create and sell controllers for said emulators...

Scorched Earth one of the all time greats!

Man, I just got an Amiga500 emulator working, and I've been playing Turrican for the last hour... I'd forgotten what a great part of my teenage years that game was!

Trash-80 sounds about right. I do forget... did TRS stand for The Radio Shack?

I'd still play Scortched Earth if I could find it. Is it still out there?

Let the Great Scorched Earth Hunt Begin!

Edit:

Scorched Earth can be found here:

An open source dos environment emulator to run it on can be found here, but the server's down at the moment...

Yeh, I actually had donkey kong in it's very first version.
That nintendo LCD hand held thingy. was some kind of pocket thing you could open up, had two screens, and it was always 1 game. Had a whole box of those. Safe to say that those things were at the origin of home gaming platforms.

Just noticed this. Did you have Adventure Quest? And yes, Turrican is the shit.

My cousins had an Atari 2600. I used to love Combat.

I was one of the three or four people who owned a Sega Master System. I had Choplifter, Hang-On, Space Harrier and The Ninja.

My friend down the street had a NES. We played Metal Gear, Metroid, Super Mario Bros., Kid Icarus, RC Pro/Am, Top Gun, lots of others I can't remember.

I was always a classic arcade kid, though. Chuck E. Cheese had all the best ones back in the day!
Tron
Donkey Kong
Qix
Centipede
Joust
Elevator Action
Zaxxon
Crazy Climber

Man, those were the days...

Don't forget Road Blasters, Smiley.

Also, Space Harrier was one of those games that I got when I was very young that took me several years to win.

"Get ready!"
