Just an idea I saw on another forum that was pretty good time sink and a nostalgia trip. I figured you guys and gals might all enjoy this.
So anyways what is your favourite games from before this generation of consoles and handhelds? So no Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, 3DS, Vita, DS, PSP or any other modern console or handheld I have neglected to mention games are to be mentioned in this thread. Also for the spirit of this thread lets also prevent any PC/Mac games from after 2006.
Here is my list I have created. Go duders and dudettes!
EDIT: I put my response in quotes because I copied and pasted my post from that other forum I mentioned.
