Your Favorite Old School Game
Anything that is not on the 360, PS3, or Wii will be considered "old school" because i wanna be respectful to age here
heres one you guys might not have heard of :confused:
jet grind radio (jet set radio) - sega dreamcast
Most of the games I really like are old school.
SMT: Nocturne, Shadow Tower Abyss, basically creepy dungeon crawlers.
It's kinda hard naming one, I've got so many............
To name a few.
* Illusions of Gaia
* Secret of Mana
* Legend of Heros
* Vanguard Bandits/Epica Stella
* Wild Arms
Just a few. :3
If I really had to choose one title, probably I'd probably have to say Xenogears; it sticks out like a sore thumb and I can never seem to get bored of it. Ironically the opposite of Xenosaga, but that's another story...
Within the past few years I revisited a ton of old games, and sort of systematically developed a dislike for most of them, lol.
Two games from a few generations back that I did (re)play and quite enjoyed were The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask and Panzer Dragoon Saga. The former I was really appreciating much more the second time, and I think it managed to kick Ocarina from its long-time top Zelda game spot.... unfortunately I lost my saved game a good ways in and never got to complete it. I'm sure I will pick it up again sometime. Panzer Dragoon Saga I played for the first time and found it to be a incredibly interesting and unique for a PS1-era RPG... I didn't complete it either, but if there was one RPG I was going to revisit from that generation of consoles, it would be that game.
My favorite old school game is the Streets of Rage series. As well as Lunar Silver Star Story. Great games.
Rival schools I got the last copy at this store before it closed, and project justice unfortunately I sold my dreamcast,well my parents did. Also sonic adventure 1 and 2

Born during N64's rise so my favourite old games were:
Mario Kart 64
Super Mario 64
Star Wars: Shadow of the Empire (not sure if it is this game but I did play a star wars game)
Populus for the PC
Sonic the Hedgehog
Sonic the Hedgehog 2
Sonic and Knuckles
Combat - Still one of the best multiplayer games ever imo.
Ice Hockey - Yeah, generic Ice Hockey. Back in my day we didn't have any of these fancy graphics or yearly roster updates, we had pixellated guy, fat pixellated guy, and skinny pixellated guy, and we LIKED it.
Guerrilla War - Completely generic shoot em up but I used to play it for hours on end.
Secret of Mana
Final Fantasy 4 and 6
Super Mario World
Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon - Impact's theme alone makes this one of the best games ever
Road Rash 64 - Forget Mario Kart, this is by far the most fun I have ever had with a racing game
Super Mario 64
Master of Orion 2 - All the interesting parts of an empire building sim with none of the mundane micromanagement. I still consider this the best game ever of that genre and it's from 1997.
well since were all naming multiple games i thought id revise my first post a bit
mario kart 64
diddy kong racing
star wars rouge squadron
tony hawk 2
digimon rumble arena
jet grind radio

snes = super punchout, top gear II & III
N64 = NWO wrestling, Bond, Zelda
ps1 = Ridgeracer, Twisted Metal I, II (lol what a great game), street fighter alpha, ffVII, Breath of fire III
Command & Conquer (1995)
Command & Conquer: Red Alert (1996)
Crash Bandicoot (1996)
Super Mario World (1990?)
Super Mario Brothers (1980-something XD)
Odd, I've played games that are older than I am, or are just a little bit younger.
