Perfect Dark, idk why. I'm not particularly great at the game but it's so god damn fun.
Everything GoldenEye should've been (aside from the lackluster end boss and sightly underwhelming bonus levels)
Perfected multiplayer with the inclusion of bots, challange modes, slight character customization with the inclusion of Miyamoto as an optional head for your character or CPU.
Amazing music
Great Presentation
An overall perfect package that has last me so many hours.
I even bought the XBLA HD port of the game to play at 60fps on 4-player splitscreen.
It's the only N64 game I never switch out when I have cartridges laying around that I may decide to play and others put in a box.
It's definitely in my top 10 favorites.

OutRun. It's an action game that's fast and challenging, but at the same time carefree and relaxing. There's a very joyful and romantic feeling to it. It also got me into jazz fusion and I frequently drive around listening to Casiopea, Naoya Matsuoka, etc.

Super Mario Bros 3. Nothing sucks me back into my childhood quite like it. Just hearing the music play immediately floods me with memories of sitting on the livingroom carpet with my siblings around this big console television playing the game. I can't think of a warmer, more comfy game.

The fact that it's a fantastic platformer and all is just icing on the cake.

Descent. I had the demo for this game and doom on my moms first pc back in 1994 I remember being in kindergarten playing these games. Just needed to give the back story. Anyways in 1996 I got Descent 2 and I still have nightmares about flying through these mines on another in a spaceship. Fighting renegade robots and bosses that can cloak themselves. Also pretty awesome music.

Metal Slug, A donut shop in New Orleans had a cab in it. I went there every morning since the age of 5 - 18. they started with metal slug and then brought a Marvel vs Capcom in. I got good enough that a run through would only cost me 2 dollars...maybe. a short but incredibly fun game. it had the gritty comedy violence thing down pat and you could tell it was an SNK game instantly.

I don't think its hyperbole to say that Final Fantasy VI changed my life, back in high school. That game had more a better story and characters than most novels I had read, and the art and music are all legendary.

but, for the sake of a really retro game, its probably Metal Storm. I first played it at an uncle's house, where we rented it while visiting. I played it all weekend until I beat it. I have no idea how I did that, because that game is fucking hard

>> No.3248997

fuck yes! Bionic Commando is a masterpiece! I will go with Mega Man 3, over 2. I played 2, but my parents bought me 3, which I have beaten over and over. I would sit down, some afternoons, and just play through MM3 to relax.

>> No.3249008

this is one of the few games that change the level and objectives, based on your difficulty setting. A lot of games will skimp on the story, if you play an easier setting, but I have never seen one that withholds gameplay.

and I have NEVER played an FPS that allows you to screw with the levels, after you beat them. It is so much fun to run around the first level with a rocket launcher and unlimited rockets

It depends on what would be considered retro to you.
Is PS1 era and before retro, or is PS1 too new?

If we're talking S/NES days, I'd have to go with Dragon Warrior 5

I'm one of those indecisive faggots who can never name just one favorite, I gotta have several.
Quake for the gameplay and nostalgia and cool enemies and atmosphere.
Tiberian Sun for godlike music and atmosphere. All C&C games have rockin' music though.
HoMM2/3 for comfy, nostalgia and music.
So many but those are the ones I liked, like and can still play.

Right now probably Alien Soldier as far as fun action runs go. That game feels so fucking good on an arcade stick. Uncharted Waters: New Horizons is probably my favorite time waster though, and chilling in the Caribbean while alternating crushing my enemies and trading Art for Carpets is probably the most relaxing way to accidentally play a game for ten hours.
