It's like seeing grandchildren on the laps their grandpas as they recite their war stories, possibly pooping a little stinker on little Jimmy cause old.

Well, we are still playing a 30 year old game. And more than a few were around when it first came out.

 

Now get off my damn lawn, I have to go tie an onion on my belt and yell at a cloud.

Better than mario 64 in my opinion, such a good game. If you like platform games you SHOULD play this game :)

1st Game:

 

A 2D platform game from late or mid 90s, it had support for up to 2 players. We were a couple of Little Elves

and fighting against Astronomical Entities and horoscopes (Leo, Taurus, Virgo etc...), art style of game was

a little similar to Metal Slug franchise. I am searching for that game for 3 years. I couldn't find anything yet.

Also, as you can guess game takes place in Space mostly.

I really want to find this one, and I looked around a bit with no luck. Maybe with some extra info... like what platform was it for? You mentioned Atari, was it on an Atari system? Was it on DOS/PC? Any other specifics would help, it sounds like it might be interesting.

I’m aware of, and have played, precisely five 1989 games. Fortunately Phantasy Star 2 was really good, so my year of birth shall be defined by that!

Well I was born in 1980 and could not name a game from that year if I wanted to.

 

Stop making me feel old.

I know that Super Mario Bros 1 was a hit in the year that I was born but, I chose this instead. Had a lot of hours playing this game with my dad and brother...

LMAO same. I wasn't able to play it until recently, for obvious reasons, but it's definitely my favorite of that year.

Same as me! This was my first game (along B-Wings) that came with my Family Game (a bootleg of the NES/Famicom) my dad brought for me  and my brother when we were kids. I played it a lot with them, and I still play it from time on time on my cellphone XD

Damn, you guys are dinosaurs <3 My favorite games are either older than me or younger, but this one is my age and holds a dear place in my heart: Silent Hill 2.

Apparently the original Battlezone was released in 1980. Love the remake from the late 90s. Think I played the original in like a browser based emulator once. It was alright. So I will say Battlezone. Pacman was released then as well but that's entirely too not shooty bang bang for my tastes. It's OK though.

I was actually born during the gaming crash of '83 between the Atari and NES years, so there wasn't a lot good going on in the industry at the time.

My ancient 35-year-old self is going to have to say Super Mario Bros 1, because what else was there? Duck Hunt was pretty fun too, I guess.

megaman zero is one of the best megaman games out there and it started what is for me the best arc in the series

(mmzero, zero2, zero3, zero4, mmzx, mmzx advent)

though it hasnt aged all that well it is still a masterpiece

At least it was indicative of what you were getting. Not like that infamous Megaman cover. God I loved Contra 3. Still remember playing Contra on arcade with my Dad.
