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............
  • Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
  • Evil Zone
  • Battle Arena Toshinden
  • Crash Bandicot
  • Pandemonium
  • Captain Tsubasa
  • Tekken 3
  • Vanguard Bandits
  • Bloody Roar
  • Dragon Ball GT: Final Bout
  • Dino Crisis
  • Digimon World 2

Zekori 2009-12-08 03:45

To name a few.

* Y's
* Illusions of Gaia
* Secret of Mana
* Terranigma
* Lufia
* Lunar
* Legend of Heros
* Vanguard Bandits/Epica Stella
* Growlanser
* Xenogears
* Wild Arms
* Shenmue

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.

FF8 - PSX (the plot had it's wtf moments, but it just had the most impact on me)
SOTC - PS2 (Ico bored me to death, this kept me hooked I marathoned it in 2 days).
Pro evolution Soccer 1 & 2 - PS2 (First time I considered sports as classics as well, though I am now a FIFA player again :O )

Heard of the game, played at a mates house. Didn't really do it for me, but I didn't have a DC, so couldn't really try it out.

Edit: Forgot about Grand Prix 3 the perfect F1 game.

Super Mario Bros. 3 - NES
Super Mario World - SNES
Sonic 3 & Knuckles - MegaDrive/Genesis
Sonic CD - Sega CD
Mega Man X Series - SNES and PS1
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - N64
Super Mario 64 - N64
Spyro the Dragon - PS1

Still more than that list but that'll do.

Anything after the N64/PS1/Dreamcast era I don't consider retro.

Larthak 2009-12-08 11:00

Old School? Oh, the 90s' PC era was just plain awesome. :o

Atomic Bomberman
Drakan - Order of the Flame
Golden Axe
Mortal Kombat
NHL 93
Prince of Persia
The Secret of Monkey Island
Warcraft: Orcs & Humans
...and of course, ancient stuff like Mario and Sonic.

Kinda makes me sad that there are almost exclusively console players out here on AS. :)

Mattie 2009-12-08 11:21

N64 - turock
Ps1 - Final Fantasy 7-9

RWBladewing 2009-12-08 11:41

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.
Mario 3

Chrono Trigger
Secret of Mana
Final Fantasy 4 and 6
Super Mario World

Perfect Dark
Mystical Ninja Starring Goemon - Impact's theme alone makes this one of the best games ever
Bomberman 64
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.
Warcraft 2
