Your Favourite Old-School / Retro Games / Game Series?
« on: September 03, 2012, 19:36 »
While writing an RE to 'Music you listening right now' i got an Idea.
[Hey, why not asking the all the Members what their Fav Old Games /Series are / were?]

So I do this.

What are Your Favourite Old School Games / Retro Games / Game Series (from then 'til now)

Well my favourite Game series is and was:

The Legend of Zelda.

I know not all games of this Series are good but most of them.

I played all of them and I got to say: Some of them are really really f**ked up.
I mean:
TLOZ II Link's Awakening... WTF was that? It was Hard as hell and had kinda the Idea of a RPG in Zelda [WTF?]
Not that the game is bad, no it's good but hell this game is totally braking the fourth wall.
And then the 2 for the NDS...
This ain't Zelda... This is just strange... No Real (Half-)open world, No real Puzzle/Riddle/conundrum/enigma (google translator), and a fraking Zelda ghost, that is following you? For real?
But the others are fine.
My favourite game of the Series is:
TLOZ: A Link to the Past (for Snes not the Remake for GBA)
This is just awesome. This is like the one that i took the most time to play through, rough estimated like 20 game hour's (100% Run) w/o Deaths. I mean 11 Temples is really much for a Zelda Game in compare to some others. *coughlikespirittracksforndsonlyfiveorsixtemplescough*,[ damn it seems like i need some medicine xD]
So if I had the choice to choose between Crysis 3 and a (good) Remake of TLOZ:ALTTP in TP-Style.. I'd definately choose Zelda...

My Second Fav is the
Prince of Persia Series

But I also like Tetris a lot.


Edit: Oh and Congrats Super Nintendo Entertainment System aka SNES... it turned 20 on 1 of September 2012

Some DOS games I used to play a lot:
- Dangerous Dave series
pretty hardcore


- Commander Keen series


- Bio Menace series


- Jazz Jackrabbit series
not bad Epic Games


- Might & Magic series
Be warned, those take forever to play through.

Honest to god, the most old-school/retro game I ever played was MARIO PAINT.

Oh, and there was this SNES game I played as well, I remember very little of it except that there was a conttollable swordsman, and in the part I played I had to run up a spiral staircase onto something of a rooftop. It was very Castlevania-esque, and the only reason I'd ever play it today was to figure out what the flying f*** I was doing.

Wait, wait, wait, no, oldest retro game: Gauntlet.
And I might as well throw Mechwarrior 3 and Elder Scrolls 2: Daggerfall out there.

...If you knew how awesome a Dreamcast is...
OK, the controller is rickety, has only one analog stick and needs a rumble pack as extension and the console is very loud, but it's a very innovative device! Memory cards in controller have their own CPU and LCD display and you can develop your own games and burn them on a CD.

Gaming on that console gives you a special feeling^^

hands down, i must say that a link to the past blew my mind when i was a kid. the zelda universe is my favourite old-school game series, still. there DEFINITELY were some weak entries, but no one ever forced me to play them, so i didn't :)
i guess just about any nineties kid that was into games (such as me) would agree with DOOM (1!), monkey island 2, 
the zelda series, the mortal kombat series, street fighter 2..

What I've seen from the CDi is lame. Just digitalized movies with a little interaction.
