Ahh! Parappa!

"chop, kick, block!"

Great game.

Recently I've downloaded PSX emulator and few games for my laptop, and among my favourites :

Chrono Cross - I'm playing it for the third time, one of the best RPG's I've ever played and definiately best jRPG that I had the pleasure to play.

Metal Gear Solid - plot. I can only say four words for one that has not experienced the awsomness of the MGS plot - "I pitty da foo!"

Bushido Blade - battle system provides a lot of suspense. One hit and you or either your rival dies. A great atmosphere of samurai spirit. No health bars. That is why Kengo : Zero, wich claims to be succesor of the title, failed - it had health bars.

Favorite old school game would probably have to be either Donkey Kong Country for the SNES or Clay Fighter 2.

I remember when the ultimate games were the ones you COULDN'T play at home. Yeah, the coin-ops in the arcade. I particularly liked the ones from Williams and Bally/Midway.

Personal fave of all time? NARC. Great graphics, music and sound effects at the time, and for a good cause, too! "Winners Don't Use Drugs!"

Smash TV and Rampage were also pretty good.

Go go gadget Old-School-Gaming!

Commander Keen was great, and I lost days of my life playing Castle of the Winds. Then along came Quake which became a time trials based competition with a few friends to see who could beat levels fastest on Nightmare. Happy, care-free days...

Oh wow... feeling quite nostalgic now. Lessee if I can name off the ones I really liked...

ANY of the Mario Bros. games
Final Fantasy
just about any of the Zelda games
Mortal Kombat (won out against street fighter for me, haha)
Joe&Mac on the SNES(my brother and I had endless amounts of fun with that one)
The TICK!!!
Asterix (huge fan of the game, the comics and the cartoons)
Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is a classic, imho
Tiny Toons
Qix (endlessly hard, but still fun)
The Power Rangers game for SNES (don't judge XD)
Star Fox
Duck Hunt
And I won't go into N64 games for fear of taking up too much more space XD

But as you can tell, I was very much a Nintendo girl. (and still am for that matter XD) though now I go for XBOX and Playstation too, lol... never really liked Sega that much... *dodges thrown objects*
