>What game was the biggest part of your childhood?

For me it was pic related. I played a lot of games, but this was probably my favorite as a kid. I remember countless Saturdays waking up and playing this with my little bro while we ate cereal. Taking turns beating levels, getting the stars that were too hard for him...

Its funny to think that Mario 64 was basically the end of the Mario franchise to me. It didn't look, play, or feel anything like Mario. Yet the game is now nearly 20 years old.

Oh shit I was just about to make this thread!

For me it was DEFINITELY Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. I shudder to think of how many hours I spent on that game. Still play it whenever I can because it's fucking awesome. Easily my personal favorite, and arguably one of the best games ever made.

Ocarina of Time/Majora's Mask and Super Mario 64. I played those games religiously. Now I really want to play them again.

Perfect Dark for me without question. Sucks that the 64 version is supposedly the only good one of the series.
OoT comes close, and then Super Smash Bros. after that.

Super Mario RPG

Seeing Mario in such a different role and even teaming up with Bowser was so magical to me at the time.

Another one that's a bit of an odd choice would be the original Pilotwings game.

Tomb Raider (I, II & III) for me.

The hours I spent on that games, you can't even comprehend. I didn't even have a crush on Lara like all of my friends who played these games did, but I just fucking loved this "exploration" feeling. I don't know, it was amazing. I actually found them again recently and played them a bit, felt the same kind of nostalgia that you usually do visiting a village you haven't been in since you were a child.

It was the first game I ever played. Something about it just stuck with me. And as a five year-old, I didn't grasp the rules of the casino games, much less the concept of gambling. I just knew that if I went outside, I'd get taken to jail or something, so I kept giving the guys at the green tables my money to stay out of jail.

Pretty much anything I ever played on the Mega Drive, but I think the one I must've played the most was Sonic The Hedgehog 2. It saddens me to see how hard the franchise has fallen.

Other games that were pretty important to me were Shinobi III (my absolute favorite and quite possibly the best game on the system), Comix Zone, Mega Bomberman and Columns.

I loved Mickey Mania: The Timeless Adventures of Mickey Mouse as well. That final boss was so easy but I thought I was gonna have a heart attack. Well I've always felt that way in any game, anyway. I still remember the first time I beat Comix Zone.

Lisa died that time. I then quickly resolved to try again and save her. I succeeded. Those feels.

Never completed Comix Zone! I rented out so many games back then. Used to have a dude with a big van full of games for all consoles who drove around the neighborhood. You could rent out a couple for the week for only a couple of pounds, even less once he got to know you. He was a word of mouth thing. Clearly a tax dodge, but he was awesome. Totally one-off.

I only played the Gameboy one for like 20 minutes as a kid and never played it again. I remember it being bad, but I coulda been wrong. I just assumed most any gun game for GB/GBA is bad.
Never played the Xbox 360 one but I've only heard awful things...
Considering buying the remake from the Xbox Arcade thing on my roommates Xbox but I'm only going to be living with him for less than a year more.
