Favourite Retro Games

Devilish Angel

Recommended Posts

Like it says on the tin, this is a thread for retro games, post you favourite games from the PAST.


My two favourite games are for the Master System.


Penguin Land

Basically the objective of this game was to safely get a egg through each level, to your spaceship at the bottom of the screen, you had to get past booby traps and enemies who will try and crack your egg.




Alex Kidd In Miracle World

The kid with ears like Spook and a fist more powerful then Mike Tyson's (in his prime of course), so powerful it could break rocks to earn you cash, or just to destroy the rocks in your way. The best bit about this game is the level bosses who you had to defeat by playing a game of rock, paper, and scissors.

Streets of Rage 2. Splatterhouse! Loved the idea of being a masked maniac!!!!! What does that say about me?


Probally not alot really.... However splatterhouse did kick ass!


For me my all time Retro games have got to be:

Super Mario brothers 1 to Super Mario World

Street fighter 2

Mortal Kombat 1 to 3

The Legend of Zelda 1, 2 and 3: a Link to the past


Sonic 1 to Sonic and knuckles

Streets of Rage 2

Doom (back on the PC)

TMNT the arcade game (even the nes game was still good as well)

Ghost busters on the Mega Drive

and finally the best game of the retro scene

Tetris - Preferably Tertris 3 on the SNES...


Every Mario up until Mario 64, one of the most over-rated games of all time... 3D Platformers suck people, 2D was way better!


Yoshi's Island and Donkey Kong Country ruled also...


Mortal Kombat 1, 2, 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and Trilogy where awesome...


Killer Instinct...


Zool rocked...


But for all time greatness?


Legend of Zelda - A Link To The Past on the SNES.

Don't forget Roland in the Caves' date=' incredible stuff! That knight Time game that was mentioned earlier looks interesting, I think I'll have a look for the rom.[/quote']

Sonic was my favourite, I used to play those games for hours. The second one was the best - its two player mode was awesome. I also loved the freedom in that game as you could complete the missions taking a number of various routes (as well as the decision to either complete the level as quickly as possible or to go for the rings). And there was the fact that Sonic is the epitome of coolness. You just can't beat a blue hedgehog.

I could not remember the Wonder Boy games, so I had a look around online and realised that I did own Wonder Boy III: The Dragons Trap. From what I can remember that was one hell of a hard game.


I wished that I had not got rid of my Master System now, looks like I'm going to be hunting on Car Boot Sales for another one :D.
