Hello /v/ what are the top retro games you would recommend to a zoomer? The most retro game I have ever played was the Ocarina of Time (and I played it on the 3ds)

The main scotformer for each of the major consoles becuase it's the game literally everybody played. Super Mario Bros for NES, Sonic for Genesis, Super Mario World for SNES, Bonk's Adventure for Turbografx 16. Yes I'm aware some of those games weren't originally bundled with the system but there's a reason they changed it.

NES, snes, genesis, neogeo, mame, ps1, n64, saturn, and dreamcast games are the quintessential zoomer /vr/ games. Yes, theyre old, but they're made for those with little patience and no desire to learn new things. They're instantly gratifying plug and play games any child from the smartphone and fortnite era can simply get into.

Atari 2600, 5200, colecovision, and other 2nd gen console games are for those who have developed a refined taste. Yes they're very simple to play, but they're all video games in their rawest form. Fortnite zoomers will be baffled by the purity and simplicity of their gameplay and graphics. Comparing 3rd gen consoles to their 2nd gen predecessors is like comparing happy meals tendies to tartare steak.

Commodore pet, apple ii, atari 8 bit, zx speccy, cpc, c64, atari st, and amiga games can only be enjoyed by the most patrician /vr/ chads. They provide the best of the best of the absolute best retro experience. They're far from instant gratification, they require a vast knowledge and understanding of video game and computing history to be fully enjoyable. They require great patience and exquisitely matured artistic sensibilities, as playing on the real hardware, with the classic floppy disk and cassette systems of our ancestors, brings the greatest enjoyment on itself. A stark difference from japanese consoles, of which emulation makes virtually no difference from playing on the real thing since they don't require more than half a brain to operate. A nintendie manchild will never understand the beauty of ZX Spectrum gaming. Thats like asking a brain damaged Marvel Cinematic Universe fan to watch the finest of Fellini's, Bunuel's, and Tarkovsky's kiñematography.

DOS games aren't retro.

I'm glad you asked!
First of all I wouldn't recommend playing pokemon red or the first kirby game since their (also handheld) sequels are far better, the other games on the list are great picks for the gameboy but I'd take shantae out, its not really a good game even if the graphics are amazing.
I'd say that on the gameboy side its lacking a wario land, demon's crest, super mario land and maybe pokemon pinball.
A neo geo pocket fighting game would also be a nice addition since they are pretty unique and good.
There may be games I'm missing though, I haven't looked through the library

>calling them cellphones still

pffft, you really are ol-
In all seriousness I'm a zoomer and Disney sitcoms always sucked Drake & Josh and iCarly were way better, and regardless, I haven't seen any since I was like, 10. ...I do rewatch Phineas and Ferb on occasion, though.

Anyways >>6483229 a good bet aside from the main game devs/platforms everyone knows (Nintendo, Sega, Playstation/Naughty Dog... basically everyone >>6483363 mentioned) is also following HudsonSoft's games, as well as SNK's if you want some quality arcade experiences.
I've personally been getting into many older racing games lately, and there's a ton made by both Sega and Namco you should check out, as well as Wipeout and F-Zero for PS and Nintendo, respectfully.
In general, Sega, Namco, Capcom, Konami, and SNK are the best when it comes to arcade-like experiences, which I personally find very attractive considering that arcades today are dead and big publishers are more interested in "huge experiences packed with content" rather than "extremely replayable and fun games with very satisfying gameplay loops that actually make you want to improve and beat your/other people's scores."
