    Default Your best old school game you still play of all time

    I am trying to see what some of you consider the best old school game that you still play is. Mine is super mario 64 because of all the game shark stuff you can do you will never ever run out of ways to custom your game.

    I can't decide on Super Mario Bros for the NES or Earthbound for the SNES.

    The first Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles game for nintendo. I can beat it in one sitting every time, only losing any turtles (if any) at the end in the technodrome. I think its one of the best nintendo games hands down, and I dont understand why so many people hate it. People say its soo hard but theres only one difficult part right at the end in the technodrome. I also hate when people bitch about the swimming part. Its really not that hard

    I still play games on many retro systems and there are really way too many i have enjoyed and still enjoy playing, but not including my arcade games/cabs then it might be something like Carrier Command (Amiga),Knight Lore (ZX Spectrum) or Berzerk (Atari 2600).
    I could never narrow it down to just one game it would give me mind block lol

    Yeah, Mr. Do on coleovision is awesome. Its the only colecovision game I really like. Its worth owning a coleco just for this game. Its impossible to play without a Super action controller. The regular controllers are just horrible

    Sonic 2. Not only is it one of my absolute favorites, but also because I have it in collections for several systems, so no matter what I have hooked up, something plays Sonic 2.
