Halo 3 - Multiplayer... good times.
Runescape - I met so many people and spent over 150 hours on multiple accounts.
Pokemon Yellow - My first ever game.
GTA: San Andreas - This was the first game I bought of this type and I loved it.
RE4 - It was my first rated M game and I was kind of shaky playing it through the first time but I quickly fell in love.

Sonic - First game I ever played.  Poor hedgehog, you died so many times at the mercy of my untrained thumbs.

Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time - Picked up the controller for the first time in FAO Swartz in NYC.  I still remember the abject fear my 3rd grade self felt after jumping of Gerudo bridge straight out of Kokiri forest.

World of Warcraft - Variously remembered with revolsion and glee, such an apportionment of my life did I grant this game that to forget it would indicate mental decline.

Sid Meier's Civilization III - Its successors could never achieve tech parity with this series' masterfully crafted third installment.

Pokemon Blue - My poor Game Boy Light worked through two battery changes and likely a coat of paint during my first session with this gem.

It's amazing how many people are listing almost entirely Nintendo titles. I guess most of us spent our formative days playing Nintendo.

Anyway,

DDR Extreme - First rhythm game I really got into. Looking back it sucked but it's the game that got me into that genre, which I adore. It also got me good at DDR which got me laid on less than one occasion

Super Mario 64 - My brother, dad, and I spent so much time playing this. We spent three months getting the 70 stars to save Peach. It was that perfect difficulty level for someone six years old and his two cohorts who were all video game virgins.

Super Smash Brothers Melee - Wow. Most amazing fighting game ever, I'll tell you what. It combined the simplicity of the original with a cast that more than doubled in size (sure, it was
just one over twice as much, but come on). I remember working on a paper about Cyrano de Bergerac in the seventh grade with this game playing in the background. I think someone was Mewtwo on the Fourside stage. Whatever.

Pokemon Blue - Sure, I'm not much of a fan anymore, but this game consumed my youth. I remember seeing that it cost $50 at Toys 'r' Us. Something about it just made me happy. I couldn't figure out what it is, but this game had a way about it that just put me at ease. I never really got into link battling, even though I remember being annoyed by people calling the Link Cable a "cable cord." Now that I know a bit more about video games, I recognize how amazing the use of cartridge space is in this game. Each of the 151 monsters has a front-facing and back-facing sprite, a list of attacks, and a list of stats, not to mention the relatively huge game world and all the music, text, and art that had to go into this game. If I had to program this, I don't know if I'd be able to fit it all in half a meg.

Sonic Adventure 2 Battle - Say what you will, my brother and I loved the crap out of this game. We knew how horrible the voice acting, script, story, and lyrics were, but that only gave the game its charm. "TERIAAAH" is still an in-joke between us, and we haven't played this game since half our lives ago.

Honorable mention: Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3, if only for leaving the game world and putting on the infinite grind cheat and leaving the game on overnight with Kelly Slater going in circles. If it had to kick one game out, I'd probably pick Pokemon, but I won't <3

wut

Anyway, my top choices would probably be

Super Mario RPG
Super Metroid
Super Mario Bros 3/ Super Mario World/ Pretty much all of the Mario All Stars collection
Metal Gear Solid series
Legend Of Zelda: Link to the Past

The main reason that these games are my most memorable (with the exception of the MGS games) is that I played them all throughout my childhood.

Secret of Mana


Final Fantasy VI
Street Fighter Alpha 2
Chrono Trigger
Ace Combat 4 : Shattered Skies

Ace Combat 4 was one of the first games in which I completed absolutely everything; All S rank's in all difficulties, all aircraft/weapons purchased etc.

It was also one of the last games that I completed everything in...

That's an interesting observation. Even though I only chose 2 from Nintendo, I guess it would be because if we started in the early ninetys that's where you went for the most part. To Nintendo. Sure there was a Genesis, but I know from personal experience, I think only one of my friends at the time had one. Rest of us had Nintendo SNES and then N64's.

GoldenEye 007 - My brother got it for his birthday and I almost gave up on the first level, but I eventually figured out the controls and loved it.

Zelda: A Link to the Past - My first Zelda game.  Came bundled with the SNES I got for Christmas when I was 5.

Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Didn't even know it existed until I saw it at a movie rental store.  I just thought that I loved ALTTP, so I should check it out.  You can guess how I felt after I started playing it :p

Pokemon Gold and Silver - Like every kid who played Red and Blue, I couldn't wait for this game to come out and I thought my head was going to pop when I came home and saw Silver on the table.  I think every spare moment of my time went into that game or talking about it for months afterward.  Good memories with those games.

Resident Evil 4 - Played the demo and one Saturday a couple weeks later, I woke up and went straight to GameStop and bought it.  I remember that day like it was yesterday.

There are many others, but these are ones that give me some really good memories.

Pokemon Fire Red: I played this game with my siblings and friends all the time. It was that rivalry and competitiveness that will make me remember this game forever.

Shadow of the Colossus: Perfection.
Kirby's Adventure: My first real game.
Super Smash Brothers Melee: Same reason as Fire Red.
Fire Emblem: Just an awesome strategy game that I played for countless hours, wherever I went.

1. DooM - id Software
This is the one that started it all. Well, not technically, cause id Software actually started the First Person Shooter genre with their nearly as good Wolfenstein 3D. But uh, this was the big one. The one that truly changed the landscape and broke the boundaries. Taking the initial gameplay of W3D, id elevated it to a new level, literally, with elevated level design and way more colorful backgrounds. From a ravaged Mars base to the bowels of Hell itself, Doom was an exhilerating experience back in the good ol days of 1994. Nothing like it had ever been seen before, and pumping a shotgun shell into a demonic hellspawn for the first time was a truly empowering moment.

Has the first person shooter genre moved beyond the corridor crawls of Doom and its many clones? Well... yes, it's number one for nostalgic reasons, but history must be respected. They're the foundation for what we have now, and should be appreciated. There aren't enough adjectives to describe everything Doom made me feel when I played it, but this landmark in computer gaming is one four letter word that cannot be tossed around lightly.

2. Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six/Rogue Spear - Red Storm Entertainment
As much as Doom was my gateway into computer games and its rich potential, Rainbow Six and its sequel Rogue Spear was my meat and potatoes. Back when I actually had a subscription to a gaming magazine (God, those were the days...) this preview for a game based on a Tom Clancy novel immediately caught my attention. I had gotten plenty bored of Quake 2 and was restless for something different and unique. The ultra-realistic gameplay of Rainbow Six fit to a T. Still, my computer at that time was unable to meet the minimum requirements for R6, so it would take a couple months before I actually got into it. But get into it I did, with a passion that now seems somewhat inhuman. I lovingly outfitted each operative with different weapons, carefully mapped out their mission routes and held my breath as they soldiered out to take down the terrorists and rescue the hapless hostages. Of course, on more then one occasion the entire operation would turn into a fiasco with multiple casualties and hostages gunned down. Alas, back to the drawing board.

But multiplayer was where Rainbow Six really shined. Freed of the cumbersome AI, it was amazing to encounter a situation where you could be taken out by the opposing team in just one or two bullets. The added lethality of the weapons and the reduced margin of error made for the most amazingly tense multiplayer matches ever. Rogue Spear, the sequel which I bought on opening day was much more of the same. I have to be honest, Rogue Spear multiplayer devoured my life throughout 4 years of high school and doubtless contributed to the fact that my GPA suffered and I never had a girlfriend. Oh well, it seemed worth it, that's just how obsessed I was with the game. Even outside the game itself, I posted frequently on RSE's (the maker of R6) forums and made quite a few memorable friends, who later formed their own personal forum at planb3.com. Rainbow Six is truly an immense chunk of my life and I have nothing but fond memories to look back on.

3. Freespace 2 - Volition
A commercial product lovingly crafted with care and detail. A scifi story epic in scope and layered with mysteries. An instant classic with legions of diehard fans in a niche genre. Boy, they don't make em like this anymore. All these sentences describe Volition's much beloved Freespace 2. Not to be confused with the partitioning utility software, FS2 is a scifi space simulation which deals with an alien threat to humanity out among the stars. Sound cliched? Yes, it is. But combine the best aspects of space sims (Wing Commander/TIE Fighter) and polish it until it gleams with radiant storytelling and space environments, and you've got this treasured masterpiece.

The first Freespace got everything pretty much right, but Volition outdid themselves on their second outing. Introducing dense nebulas to their already painterly regular space environs, the cosmic ether is a wonderful place to fight in. The pace of the game is leisurely at the beginning, but quickly ramps up to a deadly tempo as you fight to save humans and their Vasudan allies from the return of the Shivans, the antagonists of the first game. And boy, they return with a vengeance. Don't be comfortable now that mankind's built a huge new capital ship named the GTVA Colossus, the Shivans can more then match it. The twists and turns in the narrative are never anything less then captivating, and the entire game does everything to make you feel apart of an epic struggle betwen spacefaring civilizations. In the end, questions will linger, which unfortunately must remain unanswered as it doesn't look like we'll ever get a Freespace 3 due to poor sales of FS2. One of the greatest injustices in history.

4. Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory - Ubisoft
Yes yes, another Tom Clancy game. What can I say, I've got a hardon for this particular brand of realistic gameplay. Also why I find Counter-Strike such a disappointing and disgusting phenomenon. Ah well, back to Sam Fisher. Splinter Cell was one of the greats, and why it isn't on this list is simply because Chaos Theory, the third one in the series, just takes everything from Splinter Cell and makes it better. Better weapon mechanics, better graphics, better lighting, better enemy AI, better level design, and holy shit they added a knife for Sam! Truly, the most important addition to any series, ever. Slicing someone's throat open from the side with it is one of the most satisfying moves in gaming.

Chaos Theory is also superior in its addition of a fantastic co-op mode online. Instead of sneaking around by yourself, you could actually sneak around and perform stealth knockouts with a teammate. While limited to four levels, it was not a thoughtless addition and provided some genuinely exciting and tense action. While not anywhere near as cinematic or annoyingly labored with its storytelling as the Metal Gear Series, Splinter Cell is the superior stealth genre series in my humble opinion. PS: don't get SC Double Agent, it's a buggy mess on the PC.

5. MechWarrior 2 - Activision
I must be honest and open. BattleTech is my favorite fictional universe, bar none. While I am also a huge Star Trek fan, my first love has always been BattleTech. I can still remember walking into a game store in my wee youth and stumbling into the back, where I laid eyes on a 3025 Technical Readout, the one with the Marauder on the front. Sure didn't know it at the time, but I would end up collecting a large part of that universe's books over the years. I actually paid 144 dollars for a vinyl model of a Timber Wolf and have it sitting on my shelf. This universe obviously means a great deal to me. And the closest gaming portrayal of the BattleTech universe is the classic MechWarrior 2. The Clans are my favorite faction in BattleTech, so to be able to immerse myself in Clan Jade Falcon or Clan Wolf was incredibly enjoyable. Plus, the completely open weapon loadout customization and just the well thought out gameplay mechanics make the actual game a joy to pilot. The fluff of the universe is simply icing on the cake for a simulation which portrays 20-100 ton walking machines of warfare. Another classic which you can't really get to play on Windows XP or Vista these days, but what memories!

ICO (PS2) - this is the only game I'll remember based solely on its being a game.

THE LEGEND OF ZELDA (NES) - I'll remember this one, because my brother and I broke it.  Our parents were out, and we weren't supposed to play it while they were gone.  We did.  Then when we heard them return, we quickly turned everything off.  In our haste, we forgot to hold in the reset button while turning the console off.  The next time we tried to play it, the graphics were all messed up.

WORM WAR I (2600) - My brother and I would play this co-op.  We got really, really good at it.

TETRIS (GB) - Played it so much, I had dreams of blocks falling.

LODE RUNNER (APPLE II) - In high school, my best friend and I had a contest.  We decided everyday after we finished eating lunch, we'd go to the math room and play Lode Runner until next period started.  Whoever completed all the levels in order first won.  I still have the notebook back we kept track of what level we were currently on.

Runners-Up:
Dark Cavern (2600) - I got really, really good at this game.  I could even last quite a few levels with really fast, invisible robots.
Legendary Wings (NES) - another game my brother and I played co-op a lot.
Deadly Towers (NES) - I made maps of this, I was so determined to beat it.  I had no idea at the time it's impossible.
Section Z (NES) - I remember really liking this game.  I only remember it when I start thinking about the other games I already mentioned though.
Duke Nukem 3D (PC) - I know I played this through, but I can't remember how or where I came about it - I don't have it in my collection.

I put this list on my site
I dare anybody to play any of these games, and not talk about years after they finished it.

Metal Gear Solid - The atmosphere, the cinematic nature, the fact that I kept on dying because I wasn't aware of the concept of 'Stealth'...
Halo - Again, It was like being in some awesome epic Sci-Fi film. Kicked ass.
Frogger - I had a mini-cabinet of this game that I played over and over and over. My high scores were insane.
Pokemon - In the late 90s, which kid didn't have either a red or blue cart as their summer love?

Yoshi's Island - The first time I played this game, the visual style instantly struck me. I still remember the feeling I got playing that game, and that was 15 years ago.
