Old games I still want to play

Games that are from the last console generation and back that I never played, and still kinda want to.
 
I expect a lot of these wont retain the same magic that made them great originally. I can always hope for the best though.

I always wanted to play Eternal Darkness, but never just never got around to it. Maybe one day I will.

Yeah, it seems pretty alright. Who knows how it will hold up after so many years though.

Oh dude, play the Wind Waker right now. I LOVED that game.

I used to have P.N. 03. and kinda regret selling it.
 
While it felt like it needed a few more months of polish, the overall look of the game was pretty sweet. I really dug the stark, clinical feel of the levels.

Metal Gear Solid did not age well. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wearing nostalgia goggles. Twin Snakes on the Gamecube re-energizes it enough to be playable, if you are willing to put up with the horrible voice acting and dialogue. 
 
As someone who dislikes JRPGs with very few exceptions, I would highly suggest Tales of Symphonia. I only ever played the first disc (it was lent to me by a friend who had lost the second CD), but I played it all the way to the end of that disc, which is about 20 hours more playtime than I usually spend on a JRPG before getting bored. I've been told by a friend who is a Tales enthusiast that Abyss was even better.
 
Viewtiful Joe was magic, simple as that. Get it and its even-better sequel, VJ2 as soon as you can. The art style mixed with the excellent combo-based combat and the hilarious dialogue and premise are so perfectly blended that both games are truly greater than the sums of their parts.
