What were your favorite video games from your childhood?
Mine were Simcity 4, Roller Coaster Tycoon 1, 2, and 3, and Microsoft Train Simulator

Well, sorry for going a tad hipster here but…. my favourite game that I played during childhood was a game called Herdy Gerdy, but you’ve probably never heard of it before. When I say you’ve probably never heard it before, I’m not trying to gain hipster points, it was a commercial failure, which is pretty disappointing, it deserved much more.

Sonic ‘06 is a part of my childhood. I can’t play the same way like when I was 7.

Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Super Mario World, Final Fantasy II & III (IV & VI) also Mystic Quest, Donkey Kong Country, Megaman X, The Lost Vikings, Sonic 1 & 2, also A Link to the Past but I cannot for the life of me remember ANYTHING that happens in that game, and the PC game Discworld.

I suppose later on in my childhood would involve N64 and PS1 so:
Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Donkey Kong 64, Mario Party 3, Breath of Fire III & IV, Final Fantasy VII & IX (didn’t really like VIII) also Tactics, Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, and Symphony of the Night.

That green color was the shit to me! Now I look back and wounder why I never beat the submarine level.

I had two favorite systems as a little kid, the first of which being the Gamecube.


I can’t tell you how many hours I wasted on this game. I still remember leaving the game on overnight to unlock Mewtwo, and messing around on Debug Mode with an Action Replay. I recently started playing my old copy again, and I’m getting pretty darn good at using Ness.

Before de Cube of amazing Gaming, I had a Playstation.

Quite possibly one of my favorite racing games of all time. Catchy soundtrack, creative track design, and a crapload of cars that I probably wouldn’t know existed were it not for this game (Did you know that France made supercars?) Recently, I completed all of the Simulation mode races. ALL OF THEM.

I loved a crapton of games, but off the top of my head there’s

  

 

Super Mario Sunshine, Smash Bros. Melee, Wind Waker,  Cel Damage, The Sly Cooper trilogy, Hot Wheels turbo racing, Hey You, Pikachu!, Pokemon Snap, The original Pokemon games, and Putt-Putt enters the race.
And those are only the ones i remember off the top of my head…
Yea, I play video games a bit too much.

I dare you to know this game


I loved this maily because it was featuring a giant robot. And because the BGM was great!


I think I probably liked this mostly because of the panty shots of Akiko. Still a great game thought. Better than Super Mario Bros. 2.


Sorta of Ghost’N’Goblins reverse. Start in her undies, gotta get dressed, And when I was a kid I never realized those slimes were shaped like… you know what!

And of course there was Super Mario Bros.

Oh my God! Putt-Putt! Yes! Travels Through Time is my favorite, personally. Though I’m more of a Pajama Sam kind of guy, anyways.

My Childhood Game was Earthworm Jim. One of the best in animation and graphics of a 2-D game at it’s time. Also, another great one: Crash Bandicoot for the PS1. Couldn’t stop playing it.

My first Pokemon game.


Playing this with my friends was just the best.


This is honestly my favorite Legend of Zelda game.


My dad let me play this when my mom wasn’t around.

I was a big retro kid, so when I asked my parents for a Genesis with all of the Sonic games, they brought this home for me…

I’m guessing that’s why I get a sense of nostalgia for things that come from the 90s, despite me being born in 95.

Tony Hawks Underground 1, known by the cool kids as THUG. This game got me seriously into gaming, and I still want to go back and play it to this day.
Also, you got to play as Iron Man.

I held on to that transfer pack for as long as I could, but alas, I can’t find it.



What would a childhood in the late 90s be without Pokemon, right?


I never actually did beat this game, but I got to the last level, like, one time.

There’s a lot of childhood favorites I remember playing on the Atari, NES, SNES and Genesis. My childhood also involves classic DOS games like Rex Nebular, MegaTraveller 2, Police Quest series, Stonekeep, Mines of Titan, Day of the Tentacle, and most point and click adventure games. Good times!

Kirby and the Crystal Shards, niggas.

After all these years, I can still whistle nearly all the music by heart.

@Mack Attack:
My Lego island save got corrupted when I was at around 90% of creation-things made. So much rage.
Also Kirby Air Ride.

Pajama Sam and Freddi Fish, anyone?!?!

Pajama Sam>Spy Fox>Putt-Putt>Freddi Fish. You Are What You Eat is the best, though, hands down. Look at all of those politics in a children’s game. As Pierre Le Pain would say, “C’est magnifique.” Though I will concede that “Spy Fox 2: Some Assembly Required” has the best mini-game, “Things From Space.”

I used to watch the animated series, even got a Hamtaro plush myself when I was a child.
Sucks that they canceled it, though. Toonami, where have you gone?

I started playing this game because I got interested and it seemed fun for a child.
I still have it on my laptop on the VirtuaBoy emulator and I play it once in a while.
Reliving my childhood is fun.


These little badasses here are what got me into a bit more harder games during my childhood.
I can’t wait for the next installment to the series.

You mean Adventure Island!

That game was our childhood. The Gameboy was our first game system ever, and was the most advanced technology we had in our house until you got a Gameboy Advanced for your 5th birthday!
