I loved this game called Ninja on the Atari. It was very cool before video games became cool:)

I would say a tie between DW3 and DW4. Though before that was out... Space invaiders. On the atari. My dad and I could get a two player game going for litterally hours.

Not sure what DW3 and DW4 are. Enlighten me. I do remember Space Invaders and that WAS a fun game!

DW would be dragon warrior. Old NES games. Dragon Warrior 3 was latter re-released for the GBC, and 4 is coming out this fall for the DS And yeah, browser screwed up on me so it double posted.

From what I can remember from when I was younger I would have to say that my favorite game growing up would have either been Mario Kart 64,Legend Of Zelda:Ocarina Of Time, Super Mario 64,or Donkey Kong 64 all which are for the Nintendo 64,I remember having a few systems before the Nintendo 64,but I do not remember any of them games I had for them.

Ms. Pac-Man and Pac-Man are my all time favorites. I still love to go anywhere that has the arcade games. I can spend one quarter while my family blows through dollars I love it. I want to go play right now.

We didn't have video games; just pinball machines and pool tables. Of course, we had 8-tracks instead of CD's. Computers took up whole buildings. There was no such thing as a cordless phone; if you ran outta cord, that's as far as you went! And then when I got too old to play with them, they came out with all this cool stuff. Dammit!

Very funny. That was very humerous. That is how it always works. The cool stuff comes out after our time:)

I must be younger than some of you, Goldeneye for N64 was some pretty popular stuff back in 1997. way before all the deathmatching of Halo and Half Life, but it was incredible for its time.

Believe it our not, I have never played any of the Final Fantasy games. I like resident evil, but they are long and hard.
