Lately I've getting back into the groove with video games a bit and I'm playing through a lot of the older titles I've had for a while -- be it in one form or another -- but never got around to beating. I've always been a bit of a stickler for old video games. Growing up with a Nintendo 64 meant that the neighbor's old NES was a novelty, and I think it's still that way for me.

What are some old video games that you've enjoyed? Let's say games before the fifth console generation, so anything SNES/Genesis era and older. PC games from the same general time period (Doom, Myst, and so on) are also welcome.

Well when I was a child my first console was Sega Genesis, so of course I grew up with the Sonic games and I love them. Gotta say I prefer the very old Sonic games still over the new ones.
Dunno if it's just nostalgia or the new ones just suck xD

Other great games on Genesis were Landstalker, Comix Zone, Mickey Mania, Micro Machines and Worms (The last 2 were a lot of fun with my family :D)

My best friend had a NES and SNES and we often played games there together like Double Dragon, Mario Bros and some funny soccer game, which I forgot the name of.
The best part of the soccer game was that you could kill the players of ur enemies team xD
Furthermore I've spend a lot of time with Super Mario Bros. 3 which is a game I hate and love at the same time (at some point I always rage quitted xD)

When  I grew older I found some other great games for the SNES like Terranigma, Sword of Mana and Lufia, which are a lot of fun
(gotta admit that I've never beaten one of them, because of distraction xD)

I think that's pretty much everything I can remember right now.

They generally are more challenging, and I think there are three main reasons for that:

1. Hardware limitations. It wasn't possible to make a game that was too much easier than what they had on hand. For instance, you can pretty easily tell that most SNES and Genesis games are a lot easier than NES games and arcade games.

2. There were less games available back then, and part of what made video games so enticing was the fact that they were so difficult to beat in the first place. It gave them a greater replay value because it was so difficult to get through them.

3. The lack of saving ability. I was watching a documentary last night about Sega and one of the things that came up was that Sonic the Hedgehog was designed around rewarding players for speed because you'd have to replay the same early levels so often as a result of not being able to save your progress when you got to a certain level, so you'd master early levels pretty quickly. Of course, some games like Metroid circumvented it with a password system and saving was created for The Legend of Zelda, but most games back in the day just plain didn't have it.

I'm honestly suprised you of all people didn't reference the Silver Surfer on NES.

Dunno if it's just nostalgia or the new ones just suck xD

It's mostly been a matter of the new ones sucking -- there was a pretty steep downhill curve after Sega stopped making games on their own consoles, with a few sweet spots like the Gameboy Advance and DS titles. If you like the old games, it might be worth it to pick up Sonic Generations, since it manages to invoke a lot of nostalgia while still being a damn fine game in and of itself. Most of the titles in the past few years have been reasonably good, though I still question what Sonic Boom is going to do for the franchise, as it seems like it just started to get back on track...

I'm honestly suprised you of all people didn't reference the Silver Surfer on NES.

...Why would I? It's a downright terrible game and the only redeeming thing about it is the background music.

Also, guys, I'm talking about things released for the the fourth console generation and before then. The original Playstation was a fifth generation console.

Just so we're clear, Generation 2 was the Atari and old arcade games, Generation 3 was the NES, Generation 4 were the SNES and Genesis, Generation 5 was the was the Nintendo 64, the Playstation, and the Saturn, and Generation 6 was the Dreamcast, Gamecube, Xbox, and PS2. I think you know where it goes from there. Handhelds are a bit more difficult to place in the spectrum, but let's say pre-Gameboy Color since the dates about line up. So 1995 as a cut-off date.

Because it's relevant to your avatar, signature, and this quote, "They generally are more challenging, and I think there are three main reasons for that..."

Just because I like the Silver Surfer doesn't mean that I have to praise -- or even so much as mention -- everything involving him. I love the character, yes, but when he has a bad comic -- or a bad anything for that matter -- I honestly would prefer to forget about it. The NES Silver Surfer game will always be a novelty, but I don't think it's in any way memorable. A lot of licensed games back then -- and just games in general -- were stupidly hard.
