    Childhood games

    Post by Mr. Tart on Sun Oct 28, 2012 2:32 pm

    We all have had atleast one of those games that we played when we were younger. Whether it was actually a video game or a board game doesn't really matter. Try naming your top 5 favorite games as a kid, or if you wish, simply the games that influenced you the most as a kid.

    Note: This is not some kind of ''favorite game right now'' thread, just the top ? games that influenced you as a kid or that you liked the most as a kid.

    Here's my top 5:

    1. Fable: TLC
    2. Hugo
    3. Age of Mythology: The Titans
    4. Rayman 2
    5. Halo 1

    1. Megaman 2, I liked the whole series but if forced to choose just one I think I liked 2 the best
    2. Ninja Gaiden (opportunity to plug my budding youtube channel)
    3. Bionic Commando, which I loved to see brought to a new generation with rearmed
    4. Zelda 2 Adventures of Link
    5. Street Fighter 2

    1. Rachet & Clank/Sly Cooper. I loved these series as a kid still some of my favorite games, though the last R&C game wasn't very good. I'm looking forward to Sly Cooper : Thieves in time.
    2. Medal of Honor. I don't remember what the games name was, but it was on the original PS. One of my moms friends showed it to me.
    3. kingdom hearts 2. I loved this game, best Hack/Slash game i've ever played to date. Too bad my original copy is broken now sad And i haven't gotten a new one yet.
    4. FF X. First FF game i played, and the best one IMO. I've never completed it, since i don't have the patience to level up all the way. But i loved running around in the world.

    1. Final Fantasy 9
    2. Metal Gear Solid (PSone)
    3. Pokemon Red/Blue
    4. Dynasty Warriors 2 (PS2)


    Those are the only Games i remember clearly XD
    I still play FF9 and MGS because they are just timeless masterpieces that everyone can enjoy . I would still play Pokemon if i were able to SAVE :x (and i refuse to play it on an Emulator...dont want to ruin my Nostalgia)

    Pfft. When i was 6 i played games for 18 year olds and watched horror movies...

    I've always been a little f*cked up. big grin

    Oh, and i've actually been faced with that. Between the age of 13-16 i always got reactions when i told people of my age.

    Most of them were bothered with the thought of hanging out/talking with/to someone my age. Shrug

    The Pokemon Game i spent most of time on was Silver .
    I still remember all of the glorious 8 Bit Music and some of the secrets (I still know you can catch a Lapras in one cave every Friday night 0_o) .

    But after that i stopped playing it because it got repetitive. How many Pokemon are there anyway ? 600 ?

    You, sir, need to expect less, and make more pie. Point Forward

    Another game that had some effect on me was Sonic Adventure 2 Battle.
