Yeah it's helpful but I posted this because I want opinions and not encyclopedic information, necessarily.

I was born in 1991 hence it is the best year ever.

@Jost1: Sure, but I couldn't imagine that everyone remembers all the games they liked 20 years ago off the top of their heads. Or maybe they can :(

Oh yeah definitely useful for finding out whether a game came out in 1991 or not! Don't get me wrong. I thought you were pointing me in a direction of a Wiki instead of this thread, sorry :D

Super Mario World is one of my all-time favorite games, so it gets my vote. Of course, I wan't even born til 93.

You're only reminding yourself of it by creating threads like these.

FFIV and Street Fighter are both great picks.

Super Mario World shits on all of those, Sonic would be in second followed by FFIV. I remember the Genesis vs SNES console wars back in the day. Who ever thought Genesis was better than SNES has no idea what quality games are. I owned both though because I liked Sonic.

The right answer.

Monkey Island 2 came out 20 years ago? Holy shit...

#22 Posted by Ravenlight (8057 posts) -

Daaaaamn. Blast from the past.

I've got pretty fond memories of all of those games. Except Lemmings; fuck Lemmings.

#23 Edited by SpaceRunaway (902 posts) -

I didn't play it when it came out, but Gun Nac is a great game. Like Parodius, but for Compile shooters.

I would also like to express my fondest memories regarding Quackshot for the Genesis and Star Wars for the NES. I played so much Star Wars on the NES.

As a kind of related-unrelated story, a few years back I got a friend of mine a copy of Action 52 for his birthday. After about 45 minutes of playing, during which the cart behaved about as normally as you could hope for (given the game in question), we noticed that there was a faint smell of burning plastic. Upon realizing that it was coming from Action 52, we also came to realize that the cartridge had become extremely hot. I don't think the cart was too badly damaged, but I don't really know, because after that he decided that it was time to stop playing Action 52.

Wing Commander II... That is all.

#28 Posted by MightyDuck (1623 posts) -

I'd have to go with Sonic the Hedgehog.

I played it a ton back then. Weird to think that was 20 years ago. Wow do I feel old.

@Jost1: I don't think anyone's said this yet so I will. You're not supposed to put curses in the thread title. Just letting you know for future threads.

I have great memories with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles In Time. I played that using an emulator even up until last year.

If you're into flight sims, Night Hawk: F-117a Stealth Fighter 2.0 was released in 1991. It's literally THE first game I ever owned on a PC and remains one of my favourite games of all time.

Yay for Super Mario World.

#35 Posted by TwoLines (3144 posts) -

Somebody already said it, but Action 52 deserves the 1991 GOTY award. Duders, there were 52 games in there! 52!

Seriously though, SMW.

#36 Posted by Sparky_Buzzsaw (7030 posts) -

20 years since Super Mario World and Monkey Island 2. Damn, I feel old.

Me too.

This negates your birth.

Hence, you do not exist.

It was the best year ever because I was born in it :P
