Recently I've been playing Chrono Trigger again for...I don't even know how many times this makes. It's one game that I see to come back to every now and again. There really isn't any other game that I do this with either. For some reason I just love this game. Do you all have a game that grabs your attention like this?

I suppose I have several (including CT), but the main one is Mega Man X. I probably do a playthrough of that once a year. It's quite short when you know where everything is, though.

I like to re-play a lot of my classic adventure games. I'll usually pull out The Secreft of Monkey Island or Kings Quest VI every other year or so.

Good Old Games is actually having a huge adventure game sale this weekend. I was thinking of picking up a few titles that I never got my hands on back in the day. I always meant to play Gabriel Knight: Sins of the Fathers.

I recently bought :wii: Indiana Jones and the Staff of Kings just so I could have a hard copy (sorta) of Fate of Atlantis, one of my favorite adventure games. The multiple paths make that one very re-playable too.

I'll also stick with the generic but relevant Super Metroid. I could probably play that game once a month and not get bored with it, especially since it can be beat rather quickly.

Not super retro, but I routinely replay Paper Mario TTYD on an annual basis together with my wife, though we missed out last year.

Also, I used to replay both Twisted Metal 2 and Black (the best from the series IMO) constantly when I had them. Mastering all the cars took some time, and it was even more re-playable when you had someone to do co-op with.

Loved Mario RPG as well. The only thing I hated about that game was the limited storage capacity. I was used to game likes CT where you could just carry as much crap as you wanted.

I replay all of my old games a lot, but the tradition is to bring out the N64 and play Mario Kart 64/Snowboard Kids the first week of winter snow.  We also play WCW/NWO Revenge and Goldeneye a lot.

Understandable. Super Metriod is a classic. I was so excited when they made it part of the Wii U's 30 cent Virtual Console promotion. The emulation for that game is fantastic, and it looks great on the big screen, as well as the gamepad.

It's always Super Mario World for me, though Yoshi's Island is getting very close.  I play those classic games for a little while, then I get frustrated due to my crappy skills and then go back to it once again.

Super Mario World gets a perfect run at least once a year, minimum.  I tend to hit up all the other SNES greats at least every other year.

Definitely the OG Ninja Gaiden series. The first and third are difficult and cheap at times, but somehow I still go back to them. Went back to Vagrant Story on the Vita, since I'm busy and game on the go. This is one that I had waaaay back in the day and never beat, then got a second copy and never beat. Now I can hopefully put in the time and finish it.


Not enough time to beat any games, dammit!

I guess mine would be Final Fantasy VII, which I've beaten four times over the past 13 years.

Lately, I sometimes find myself messing around with Super Mario World every so often as well.

Next to Sonic 1 through S&K and Shining Force II, TJ&E was also another Genesis game I'd replay often, but mainly co-op.

  • Questron (One of the best endings to a game ever)
  • Jumpman
  • M.U.L.E.
  • Bandits
  • Ultimate Wizard

These games are still fun after 30 years

For me...

 

Super Nintendo / Super Famicom

  • Super Mario World - My first game and an all-time favorite
  • StarFox - An unforgettable experience
  • Donkey Kong Country - One of the greatest platformers of all time, in my opinion
  • Tetris Attack - My favorite puzzle game ever
  • Mega Man X - Few games come close to it
  • Super Godzilla - The only SNES Godzilla game I had until...
  • Godzilla: Kaiju Daikessen - A Japanese 2-D fighting game with Mechagodzilla 1974
  • Sailor Moon - Huge fan of the series. It was also my first SFC game

Nintendo 64

  • Mischief Makers - A golden gem in the N64 library. Absolutely love it
  • Virtual Pro-Wrestling 64 - The superior Japanese version of WCW Vs. nWo: World Tour
  • WCW/nWo: Revenge - Another classic wrestling game
  • WWF: No Mercy - Legendary for good reason
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time - Simply perfect

Game Boy Advance

  • Fire Pro Wrestling/Fire Pro Wrestling A - Best portable wrestling game ever. Lives in my GB Micro

Dreamcast

  • Fire Pro Wrestling D - Best of the series. Like FPA, it lives in my Dreamcast

Sadly i've beaten FFVIII at least once a year since it came out.

 

But,  for me, it has to be Wizards and Warriors and Mega Man 2 on the NES; Chrono Trigger and Donkey Kong Country 2 on the SNES, Resident Evil 2 (any), and Lunar Silver Star Story and Eternal Blue Complete

Original LoZ - I try to play it every December. Got it for Christmas as a kid and it brings back great Christmas memories for me.

FF6 - if I had one game to take with me on a desert island this would probably be it. Find something new everytime I play it

Secret of Mana - I play through it every 5-6 yrs and now bought it on ios. Not nearly as good on ios (and much harder) but still same game at heart

PS1:

Spyro The Dragon (My disc got used so much, it became unreadable and I couldn't find another. I have this one downloaded on my PS3 now. :P )
S.C.A.R.S. (Racing game; It's my avatar. One of the most unique racers ever.)
Looney Tunes: Sheep Raider (Puzzle game in third person. Very tricky one at that, but loads of fun.)
Crash Team Racing (FTW over Mario Kart)

PS2:

The Sly Cooper trilogy. (I've beaten all 3 multiple times, but it just never gets old for me. I've got the originals, as well as the HD collection for PS3.)
The Jak and Daxter Collection (Same situation as Sly. Have the originals and the HD collection. Also still play Jak X. No, I don't play the bastard child known as The Lost Frontier.)
Tony Hawk's Underground 1 and 2 (Best skateboarding games ever.)

PC/Miscellaneous:

The original DOOM Trilogy (I have the collector's edition for PC and I also have DOOM 1 and 2 on my 360.)
TMNT (The 1985 Arcade game. Used to blow a number of quarters in the machine, but now I have it on my 360.)

Number 1 for me would have to be Megaman 2 for the NES, I play through it at least 10-12 times a year. Number 2 would be NHL 94 for the Genesis. I have played a complete season every year for the past 20 years (NJ Devils, Stanley Cup Champions, 20 years in a row and counting), beginning at the start of every October, even when there was a strike and no season. Although, this past season may have been the last with NHL 14 getting the option of 94's controls.
Currently playing:
PS3: The Last of Us (2nd playthrough), Hyperdimension Neptunia
3DS: Shin Megami Tensei IV, Luigi's Mansion Dark Moon, Project X Zone
