    Back to the Classics.

    Okay, the server is down or internet connection is lost and now what? Ever had the game itch of just dusting off that old NeS and playing some straightforward mechanics on a simple two button control?

    I have my 2600 hooked up just because I love PacMan. Plus, something to be said about the old controller with the big orange button lol

    Final Fantasy 8 or 9 on my PS3

    Although you didn't specifically say you'd be forced to choose an old game so under those 'lack of net' circumstances i'd probably go on Forza Horizon single player or something.

    Nice, I don't have that system but I'm sure I'll keep my eye out for one now.

    I bought the Sega Classics packs on a Black Friday deal.

    Currently replaying Phantasy Star 2. Plan to play PS4 and the Shining Force games.

    Used to have a 4-player TMNT 2 arcade cabinet. That was the go-to for my friends and I for a long time. Now that I'm in a smaller place, it's always Mega Man 2, and I can always do it faster than last time.

    I love classic video games but setting up some of the old systems can be a pain for me. I'm actually in the process of locating and matching all the cords to each system, then boxing them up in their original boxes so I don't lose them again.

    I really enjoy the games that pay homage to classic video games. Have you played Sonic Generations? Holy crap, is that a good game. And it's on sale for $7.49 on Steam right now. If you have a controller to plug into your PC, pick up Sonic Generations. It's seriously one of the best platformers I've played in years. You basically switch off between Classic and Modern Sonic. Classic Sonic plays just like he did back on the Genesis, while Modern Sonic plays more like how he did in his more recent 3D outings. Both are very fun, and there's a ton of replayability. 100 challenges plus online rankings if you're into that.

    A Link to the Past, Donkey Kong Country, or Yoshi's Island. Still have our SNES. Maybe some N64 games.

    I lack a TV or an old system, I keep thinking about picking SNES or later system up since I never had one

    I still play SNES games all the time. I usually play Yoshi's Island and/or Super Mario World yearly, along with some others. I don't have my SNES anymore, but I have all my favourites on other consoles. I don't find NES games as enjoyable, but I play Mario 1 and 3 occasionally.

    My N64 is my oldest working console, but I rarely bother hooking it up when I can just use my Wii.

    I keep my NES hooked up for the Mega Man games, Solstice, Castlevania 2 and Metroid (and a few others, but these are the key games that I still like to play from time to time). I also keep my Genesis hooked up for Shining Force 1 & 2 and Cool Spot, Turbo Duo for Gate of Thunder, Bomberman 93 and Dracula X, and SNES for Chrono Trigger, Ogre Battle and Super Metroid. Not sure if I'd call 3DO 'classic', but Star Control 2, Flashback and Space Hulk are still played. This, of course, doesn't even scratch the surface of older PC games that I still play, some on a very regular basis.

    So, yes, I know that itch. I know it well.

    My Wii is set up to emulate NES and SNES games, so I have quite the variety of old games to go to. Then again, I am a console gamer, so I don't mind too much if the internet decides to take a shit for a while.

    Sonic series, for Sega Genesis. Two buttons is too much.

    It may not be a console game, but Baldur's Gate! And the new Enhanced Edition makes it even better!
