    I don't really game nearly as much these days as I did when I was younger. I guess I'm just too focused on other stuff these days (like making that bank) but when I was younger I used to love the shit out of video games and every now and then I'll play some of the games that I grew up playing for nostaligas sake.

    I actually kind of prefer the older games to the modern games. They weren't insanely realistic, they didn't have the best graphics and many of them seemed to be harder but damn they were fun!

    So anyway I thought I'd shares some of my favourites...

    Donkey Kong Country (SNES)


    Oh my gawd I loved this game. All of them. The Donkey Kong games were so badass and had such good graphics for their day.

    Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES/Genesis)


    This game was fucking addictive and one of the best co-op multiplayer games I've ever played. It was also hard as shit.

    Sonic (All of them/SEGA)


    How could you not love Sonic? You couldn't.

    Goldeneye 007 (Nintendo 64)


    Awwwww yeah. This game blew my mind when I first played it with my friends and discovered the "proximity mine".

    Zelda: Ocarina of Time (Nintendo 64)


    I spent so many hours playing this game (and the sequal). I'd almost be tempted to buy a Wii to play the new Zelda games because I loved this game so much but it seems like it would be kind of pointless buying a console for just one game and plus it would eat away at my productivity.

    So yeah. That's my childhood in a nutshell. What old school games did you love?

    I like Sonic game from SEGA, it was a good time for me :)
    And my favourite are the old J-RPG stuff like final fantasy series, chrono cross, suikoden series etc, Even now i still play the suikoden series :). Today JRPGs was not good at all, that's why the old one is my favourite

    I used to play "Build a lot 2" very often and very long, sometimes more than 12 hours - what a huge waste of time !!

    [Nowadays I play "Build a lot Backlinks" - also very time consuming, but I think in the long term more useful :)]

    Old school GTA Top View, what days those were. Probably the best game from my youth (well younger me) would be Counter Strike 1.6

    Yoh I can't for the life of me remember what the gang were called. I'm pretty sure there was Triads or similar.

    I was obsessed with Legend of Zelda on the original Nintendo, would play it until 3:00 a.m. then get up at 6:00 a.m. to get the kids ready for school and go to work. My son still has the Nintendo device (works properly off and on now) and my games from way back then are still saved on it.

    I played through all the levels repeatedly. I'd play other ones too, some with my son but man! did I love Zelda!

    Just occurred to me that you youngsters might have to look that one up. :D
