    What Are Some Games You Played As A Kid?
    Do You Still Enjoy Them To This Day?
    Do You Own A Copy?
    Do You Have Any Intentions To Hunt Down A Copy?

    A Few For Me Are,

    Super Mario 64 (Nintendo 64)
    Goldeneye 007 (Nintendo 64)
    Vigilante 8 (Nintendo 64)
    Serious Sam (Xbox)

    A Few Minor Titles I Haven't Played Since I Was A Kid

    Soul Caliber (Sega Dreamcast)
    Looney Tunes Whacky Races (Sega Dreamcast)

    I Plan To Buy A Dreamcast Sometime And Get The Sega Games. The Rest I Own Copies Of.

    I Left Alot Of Games Out Because They Were From My Teenager Years And Not Necessarily My Childhood.

    There are a lot to name for me, most of which I don't own since I usually rented or borrowed them from friends but I'll try to make a list. Already posted something like this in a thread years ago but I'll do it again with names of games I guess.

    My first game system was the NES, I got it from my aunt with a few games when I was 5 years old

    Super Mario Bros.
    Duck Hunt
    Unknown NES game I can't remember

    Eventually I stopped playing it because I wasn't really interested in gaming then as much as I am now so I think it got sold or given away but I'm not sure because it was a long time ago.

    I never owned a SNES as a kid but I played it a lot at my mom's friends house and I ended up becoming friends with her son even though he was a few years older than me, that was when I really got into games. I went there a lot and I didn't mind since I got to play SNES all the time.

    Some games I remember playing are:

    The Legend of Zelda A Link to the Past
    Super Mario World
    Adventure Island
    and there's probably a few other ones I can't remember

    One day I went over and he got a Nintendo 64 with The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time, it was amazing and it was the first Nintendo 64 game I had ever seen, the graphics were unbelievable compared to the SNES and NES. I have so many memories of that game, I think the first thing I seen was Zora's domain and I'll never forget that moment. I played it a bit but I wasn't able to beat the first boss Gohma, of course I was 6 years old at the time I think the problem was I couldn't aim the slingshot to shoot her in the eye.

    The next Christmas, I got a Nintendo 64 with Super Mario 64 and soon after that, I got The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time

    Some games I played back then:

    Super Mario 64
    Mario Kart 64
    Mario Party
    The Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time
    The Legend of Zelda Majora's Mask
    Pokemon Stadium
    Pokemon Stadium 2
    Pokemon Snap
    Pokemon Puzzle League
    Banjo Kazooie
    Banjo Tooie
    Tonic Trouble
    Star Fox 64
    Vigilante 8
    Kirby 64
    Paper Mario
    Chameleon Twist
    Toy Story 2
    Blast Corps
    Turok 2
    Buck Bumble
    Yoshi Story
    Super Smash Bros.
    Jet Force Gemini
    Battletanx Global Assault
    Command & Conquer
    Snowboard Kids
    007: The World is Not Enough
    Shadow Man
    Spider Man

    Next I got a fat PS1 with a yellow third party memory card (I still have this and it still works even though it spent some time lost outside and even went through the washing machine), Gran Turismo 2. That PS1 ended up breaking so I returned it and by that time the smaller PSOne was out so I got that instead, so I'm glad in broke, free upgrade!

    Some games I played on the PS1:

    Gran Turismo 2
    The Legend of Dragoon
    Metal Gear Solid
    Final Fantasy VIII
    Final Fantasy IX
    Final Fantasy Tactics
    Vigilante 8
    Vigilante 8: Second offence
    Hot Shots Golf 2
    MediEvil II
    Speed Punks
    Syphon Filter 2
    Tomba 2
    Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2
    Crash Bash
    Crash Team Racing
    Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee
    Resident Evil 2
    Spyro 2 Riptos Rage
    Yu-Gi-Oh Forbidden Memories

    Seems like I played a lot of games with 2 in the name...

    Other than that I had a Gameboy Color with Pokemon Silver and The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening. I think that's all.
