Which game are you fondest of? (in Off-topic)
Just wondering what games you guys are nostalgic of. ;)
Personally, I can't name the hundreds of hours that me and my friend spent on playing tournaments on Quake 3.
Me and the same friend also used to play the Descent-clone Forsaken constantly, until we moved on to Q3A. ;)
LoRD was also super fun.

Final Fantasy 6.
Warcraft 2 and 3.
Mortal Kombats 2 and 3.
Ah, StarCraft... I've spent whole days playing and suddenly look up at the clock, wondering how it's already dinner-time, and I'm not even hungry! ;)
March 19 2009 5:07 PM EDT
Finial Fantasy 7 and 10 along with Starcraft have to be mine
March 19 2009 5:09 PM EDT
I've played and finished Final Fantasy VII for the PC about 10 times or more. Every time with fun and tears.
some others on the list are:
Baldur's Gate (both 1 and 2)
Icewind Dale (both 1 and 2)
Medal of Honor

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
the classic Super Mario Bros 1 2 and 3
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past

Diablo 2 was great till that woeful expansion set.
March 19 2009 5:32 PM EDT

March 19 2009 5:37 PM EDT
Daiblo 2, warcraft 2, and Super smash brothers for the N64 are the games I miss playing the most.
March 19 2009 5:42 PM EDT

Bubble Bobble, Contra, Metroid
Super Metroid, FF2, Street Fighter 2
Team Fortress Classic, Natural Selection, Starcraft
Very easy list to write down :)

Fuzzball and Zool on Amiga
Best platformers ever
Defender of the Crown on Atari ST

Master of Orion II : Battle at Antares.
We had a rather large group of enthusiasts in our old "school" days, spending evenings and weekends on end playing hotseat games, holding tournaments and such.
It's a game so awesome no game to this day has really been able to compare with the experience.
And yes, I still play it occasionally... many of the old gang still do, especially when we're getting back together for a drink or somesuch.
March 19 2009 7:11 PM EDT
No mentions of Jazz Jackrabbit/sequels?? Really?
That was a super fun game.
March 19 2009 7:15 PM EDT
Any of the Halo series. Play Halo 3 now. I go to tournaments and can just play all weekend without getting up once it seems like.
March 19 2009 7:18 PM EDT
Master of Orion II was/is definately awesome. XCom Terror from the deep as well.
Final Fantasy 8 is the only console game I can ever remember enjoying.
Rome: Total War was just fun all over.
Diablo 2 was awesome.
Darkfall is the best MMORPG I've ever played.
March 19 2009 7:41 PM EDT
FF7 >>>>> FF8
March 19 2009 7:43 PM EDT
How could I have forgotten Castlevania: Symphony of the Night?
Or Chrono Trigger?
FF VII and VIII, Gran Turismo 2, the original Medal Of Honor, and WWF Attitude all for the old Playstation.
The entire Battlefield series, Diablo 2, and Civilization II for PC
And how could I leave out the Bard's Tale series of games for the Commodore 64 lol
final fantasy tactics Ps version. xD
Donkey Kong: Country, for me too. ;)
March 19 2009 8:16 PM EDT
Master of Orion was just so much more fun than the sequel, 2 had WAY too much micromanaging. I still play the original despite the increasingly dated graphics and the terrible personalities of the AIs. I will say that at least 2 had more realistic NPC rulers who would actually respond to bribes and/or overwhelming military defeats.
Star Control II is the best game ever. Engaging plot, fantastic dialog, even a multiplayer space combat bit. Sadly it's going on 20 years old by now. It does have a fan supported version called 'The Urquan Masters' that will run on your fancy new modern computational devices though. Check it out, for it is the awesome.
March 19 2009 8:19 PM EDT
Any of the Dragon Quest/Warrior games.
Somehow, I forgot Mtrek. 10 or 11 years ago, I wasted hours upon hours on that game :)

"Master of Orion was just so much more fun than the sequel, 2 had WAY too much micromanaging."
Yeah, but the sequel had something else that made it awesome : multiplayer :)
Hotseat sessions lasting 30 hours, yummy (and ouch, tired).
March 20 2009 12:00 AM EDT
I'd say Wolfenstein, but I still play it regularly, so it's not really a nostalgia thing any more :P
Same for Sonic. In fact, I was just playing that a few minutes ago, when I didn't even know this thread existed!
March 20 2009 12:01 AM EDT
Forgot to mention: Duke Nukem. Great game (or so my memory says)
Lemmings lemmings lemmings lemmings lemmings lemmings lemmings.

on my atari 2600 i loved pitfall!
oh the memories.
March 20 2009 12:33 AM EDT
Oh, Pitfall. I still hate those crocodiles. Actually, I think the snakes may have been worse.
I remember the first time I finished that game...
"LoRD was also super fun."
You're comparing Quake 3 and Descent to LORD ?????
kirby for the NES.
That was soooo cool back then.
I play that game every so often emulated on my pc
March 20 2009 5:20 AM EDT
Super Mario Bros. and Starcraft on both I have had hours after hours of fantastic gameplay.
March 20 2009 5:23 AM EDT
WoW for me :D.
And just to think... When first I started playing I hated that game... Now... Its sucked in my soul D:
March 20 2009 5:26 AM EDT
Zombies Ate My Neighbours on the SNES. I loved that game. Actually there were loads I loved on the SNES. But this one appealed to my humour. Especially the giant baby, made me laugh out loud on many occasions.
Zelda on the N64, FF7 on the PS.
any final fantasy game
March 20 2009 6:32 AM EDT

I completed it only recently, but Aquaria is a brilliant, beautiful and amazing game that is easily in my top 3 games. Seriously, give the demo a shot at the very least. It's similar to Metroid/Castlevania, but its underwater and much more artsy.
Tombi/Tomba is also up there pretty high. I love that game and completed it a good number of times. So many times, in fact, that I had it down to an art. I could probably it down right now and finish it in an hour or two, when my first play was up at 20+ hours :P
March 20 2009 10:22 AM EDT
Secret of Mana
Age of Empires, Age of Kings, Age of Myth
Quake, Quake 3
