Such a fun game.  I used to be able to run through every single boxer in the game first try.

Me too, the learning curve in general in that game was awesome. Difficulty ramping up by forcing you to adapt to all the game mechanics with each new opponent just as they become muscle memory and you become addicted to the time trials mode. No wonder why the NES version at least is popular in speed running it seems like. There's a YouTube doco out there on people learning how to beat it blindfolded too.

Whatever you do, donít go to my old bedroom, open the top left dresser drawer, and play this.

Haha holy shit, Crave definitely sunk to a new low with this one. Weren't they a cool game developer? That rep must've died quick.

Had a dope Indiana Jones game. If I still had my old PlayStation Iíd play that. Had a grappling hook and all sorts of crafty shit. Donít remember the exact name unfortunately
Found out today it was called Young Indiana Jones and it was for the sega genesis. Mightíve been released on other platforms but idk. There was no grappling hook, it was Indy using his whip as a rope to climb. And rewatching gameplay, it looks horrible and reminds me why I never even got close to beating the game even though itís relatively short. So so repetitive and tedious. As a kid, it was the coolest game ever though.
Piers Morgan is made almost entirely out of pressed together slices of cooked ham, if you trace his ancestral lineage back far enough you reach a sort of boar like creature

Haha, you know what I never had or really played sega genesis. I had a Game Gear and that was hectic.

Wow, Ape Escape...I haven't heard that name in a long time but it does ring some bells. I think I read in EGM way way back that it was fun.

Love symphony, own it and beat it but plan on playing through it again. Actually thinking of playing Dracula x on SNES bc of symphony!

I remember hearing about ehrgeiz and policenauts, should check those out. Love tekken 3, I just played it a bit using Jin for the first time in a long while. I played that one super heavy as a kid. Medal of honor, heard it was fun. I have to check out all those PS games, hell yeah.

@Hinna just beat MGS today, saved Meryl too. Brought back some good memories, I was hyped

You can download them for free, I just realized they put out a new one this year

Silent Hill is a must play game, it's the most immersive Ps1 game, I used to spend long hours chasing clues on top of feeling terrified. Gran Turismo 2 used to be my favorite by far followed by Crash Bandicoot racing.

Other fun stuff: Vagrant Story, Legacy of Cain, Vigilante 8, Valkyrie Profile, Ace Combat 2, Driver, Resident Evil 2

Nice, never heard of this before! I recall playing a Syphon Filter demo waaaay back, but this doesn't ring a bell.

Definitely have to get Silent Hill, that one costs a pretty penny. Own GT2, haven't played it in so long though. Barely heard of Vagrant Story or half of the others you mentioned, thanks!

If possible Adam, try an emulator on your computer. You can really just get any game and translations of games that only came out in certain countries. I use epsxe and while configuring it can be annoying, thereís a lot of really neat things you can do with it. Iíve been really wanting to check this fan translated version out but thereís too much on my plate right now: http://youtu.be/mMs9oVMIyB4 (forgot how to link videos)

Mizzurna Falls, that's different. I never really got into or understood emulators but they're definitely being touted. I should check that out. Thank you!

This stretch in gaming is known for really good rpgs from Japan.

On SNES I would recommend Chrono Trigger, Mario RPG, and Final Fantasy 6

On PlayStation I would recommend Final Fantasy Tactics, and Vagrant Story. The were a lot of ps1 rpg bangers, but I think a lot of them aged poorly and you mightíve missed the boat on what made them special.

Hell yeah, good to hear from you Lenny! I've heard so many good things about Chrono Trigger that it's on my to-buy list. I need to check out Vagrant Story for sure. RE: RPGs, I own and have beat FF7 and I'm about to beat it again. I also just started FF8. Also owned and beat Legend of Legaia way back in the day.

I get what you mean about aging poorly, even FF8 does feel more geared toward teens. I was a teen when I bought it and it's a fun trip down memory lane at least (like a really long trip but still)

Super Mario World for SNES... if you like Mario 3 you'll love that too. Earthworm Jim is also top notch.

For playstation I remember loving Tenchu: stealth assassins and Metal Gear Solid... the first true stealth games. Also FF7 (you already know), and Resident Evil 2 took a lot of hours of my life

Oh man, Earthworm Jim, I really should check that one out! I think I played it once, maybe rented it from a video store? Loved EJ and Rocko's Modern Life as a kid, so for sure.

Tenchu sounds like a good one as well, it's on my list!

Thanks @rawbertson. for all the recs, yeah I looooved Bubsy as a kid, I still have the cartridge but it's not working sadly. MidEvil is one I've heard of but never played, I know you're a video game guru so your knowledge is much appreciated!

PSX - Castlevania SOTN (lost track of the number of times I've played this game)
SNES - Mega Man X & X2, Chrono Trigger, Seiken Densetsu 3 (Trials of Mana) with the English ROM patch is you're looking for a JRPG with more action and tons of replayability, Harvest Moon if you want to lose track of days and severely compromise your sleep schedule

Never heard of Peacekeepers, will check it out. I was never that good at Tetris, but I'll check out Tetris Attack as well! I have a soft spot for puzzle games; have Devil Dice for PS1 that I still need to play.

Where do you get snes roms?

A quick Google search or you can "take to the high seas". Probably wouldn't recommend the latter since the USA doesn't take kindly to borrowing files from a friend whose username is trustedtorrentuploader.

SNES

Demon's Crest
Goof Troop



Demon's Crest is amazing visually but the slow down is brutal at parts. And that last boss is bullshit.

Goof Troop is such a fun time, definitely highly recommended to play solo or 2 player casually. Also a great way to ruin a friendship by hoarding all the health pick ups and smashing pots on your friends head.

PSX:
Metal Gear Solid
Twisted Metal 2
Rogue Trip
Parasite Eve 1 & 2
Beatmania
Blood Omen
The Misadventures of Tron Bonne
Vandal Hearts
Final Fantasy Tactics
Parappa The Rapper
