    Probably my saves on Super Mario Land 2, from 1993.

    Hmm

    Mine would be zelda 3 fron 1994 snes or a Phantasy Star 1 save from sometime the same year.

    My original Phantasy star 1 save got wiped while in a master gear converter and going through an xray at the airport.

    I do have some game saves from atari 8bit disks from 20 years ago that are preserved in ATR files. Do they count?

    I think I still have a save game on a zelda 1 on the nes from 1990. I cant believe the battery pack is still good.

    I know I still have my unfinished save from Warsong. I got stuck on chapter 11 and was never able to get any further, even now. I must have fucked up royally.

    Anyway I think the save dates back to oh... 94.

    My first save has to be one from the Super Mario World game for the Super-Nes. I got the game together with the console, i guess it must be from around 1989, can't really remember when I got the S-Nes. Around the launch I think. I don't have any saves on NES games, only on games I got much later used.

    The SNES was released in 1991 I think ;)

    The oldest savegame I still have should be one of Monkey Island (good old data disks) from 1994 or 1995.

    I don't have any that are really old, mainly because my mom gave our NES away when we got a SNES. I had a game saved on my copy of Secret of Mana. That must have been from around 1995 or so.

    Battery based:

    A perfect game of Super Mario World from when it first came out, (91) and a circa '94 slot of Super Metroid; the first time I beat Mother Brain. Sometimes I've plugged in the carts and fiddled with them just to keep the saves alive.

    Disk based:
    Found some rare surviving C64 disks from my original collection that have Bard's Tale 1 saves on them. My broher Rob (There! I mentioned you now Rob, happy?!:P) would play the game for days at a time. I've also got a Mail Order Monsters save disk from the day. MOM: around '86. BT: '86 or '87.

    Final Fantasy Mystic Quest (SNES)-this one goes back to 1998. I have Level 41 with all items and spells at the end of the game.

    Chrono Trigger (PS-One)-this one's a few years old, I think somewhere around mid-2002. In this save, I've gone through the game three times and my characters are around Level 78.

    Final Fantasy IV (PS-One)-this one goes back to late 2001. I have it saved at the end of the game with all characters at Level 99 with near best equipment.

    I have a very old PS1 memory card, from at least 1997. I haven't used it in quite a while, but it has very old saves, some even from '97 or '98.

    Had a Crazy Taxi save since March 2000 when I racked up about 74 grand on the arcade city... picked it up two years to the day later and racked up a 72.5.

    Nowt older than that, though, that game pretty much started my collection, lol.

    Either dragon warrior 1 or 2 for nes. Actually, I still have saves on all 4 of them.

    I used to have two really old save files that I would check on every couple of years to see if they were still alive. One was my first ever SNES zelda file, but I traded that to Bratwurst a long time ago so it's probably long gone. My other file is my 1988 save file in slot 3 of the Legend of Zelda. It was still alive when I checked it last Christmas. Considering how prone the NES was to erasing save files, I think that my '88 file is quite the little trooper.
