    For me:
    Mario 3(of course)
    Super Mario World
    BattleToads
    Ninja Gaiden
    Street Fighter
    Mortal Kombat

    To name a few.

    -I don't care what the next expansion is about, as long as the story is dark and rich so I can refer to it as Chocolate WoW.

    I fondly recall a few of what you mentioned, and I raise you Master Blaster, Metroid, Kid Icarus, Rygar, and Excitebike. 8-bit, baby. Yeah!

    There was one I briefly played way way WAY back when I was 8ish? I honestly can't remember how old I was, but it was for the original NES it was either Snow Brothers or Super Snow Brothers, but I remember it being fun as hell. The main characters were basically two snowmen and you would jump up and up to various platforms and throw snowballs at enemies. Sadly this game hasn't been released on the wii virtual console.

    An awsome game I used to play all the damn time though also way back when was for DOS which was Dominus. It was kind of like an rts type game. Basically you played this king who's kingdom was being invaded by different armies of varies monsters and stuff and you had to defend it. You could lay down traps, release you own monter armies to combat them, capture monsters and then do sciency stuff by combining two or more monsters together to make a super monster, and you could also come down and personally fight yourself. Sadly though it was for DOS and so now I can never play it again. :-(

    Get AoE II if you don't have it. It was a better game, best of the series the majority of people say, and to this day is still the best game available in terms of multi-player options. No rts that I have heard of allows you to tweak as many paramaters for your games.

    Mario series.


    I got a thing for platformers, and Mario has never steered me wrong! Not to mention it's still difficult, 20 years later.
