I'm not asking what game is the best. I'm asking what game you would play first, be it for the first time, or just to revisit some old (better?) times.
- Battletoads - Endless prank calls galore!!
- Kid Icarus: Of Myths and Monsters - It only took twenty years between games, no biggie
- Metroid II: Return of Samus - Guys, guys . . . he's a she!
- Ninja Gaiden III: The Ancient Ship of Doom - One of the better subtitles I've heard
- Sonic the Hedgehog - Never has holding down the right arrow been so fun
- Street Fighter II - The first really well done popular fighting game?
- Super Castlevania IV - Sadly, I've never played a game in this franchise . . .
- Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge - SCUMM based goodness all up in me, yes please
- Sid Meier's Civilization - Turn based gaming finally found its mark
- The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Yesyes, this came out in 92 here in NA, but I messed up and didn't put it down in that poll, so its here now, since it came out in Japan in 91 anyway
- F-Zero - GOING SO FAST I HAVE TO MEMORIZE THE TRACKS AUUUGGGHHHHH
- Super Mario World - Mario was always destined to ride the green dinosaur
- Neverwinter Nights - I didn't know about this version...although I played the 2002 version a metric ton
- Final Fantasy IV (II in NA) - Active Time Battle System GO!
- Duke Nukem - Duke watches Oprah. Did not know this.
- Lemmings - uggghhhhh, haven't played this one either . . .
- Road Rash - Chains? Leather? Helmets? Motorcycles? Sure, put me down for some of that.
Previous installments -92
I have a confession to make. I totally spaced it in the '92 poll, and didn't put Link to the Past in there . . . biggest mistake I made. Ever. I worked at Gamestop for a brief couple months, and during that time I got my share of calls about Battletoads and its upcoming sequel. That was a pretty hilarious thing to mess with the kids who were calling. No, they have nothing else better to do. Also, another admission here, I was 4 at this time, so while I very well may have played these at this age, I don't really remember it. But I do take the time here and again to go back and play a few games I have certainly missed, and yeah, its a hoot going back and playing them. Some good times back then, and even now
Me? My choice? It was a reallllly tough choice between Castlevania, Final Fantasy, and Super Mario World. Mario, because it's just a joy to play, and the other two because I've never played them before. I'm gonna have to lean towards FF, because I've never played anything before VII. Castlevania....eh, I've played games that have brushed a bit too close to it before.
