Games of your childhood

Which games did you remember rushing home from school to play when you were a little kid?

For me, it was all those Tony Hawk games on the PS1. THPS2 and 3 were amazing! Either that or Music 2000, or Toca Touring Car Championship.

I loved them all :D

    I remember Neopets and Metroid.

    I remember installing some pretty gory games that used to come in my dad's PCMagazine issues. They were epic.

    Oh wow.. pretty much any NES cart I could get my hands on. Alot of the classics... SMB2, Contra, etc.
    Somewhere in middle school I fell in love with KOEI games and gave most of my life to Uncharted Waters and PTO II.
    I remember in High School, 98-02, I would rush home to play Super Mario Bros on the NES even with Goldeneye and whatnot sitting right next to it. No idea why, just loved it.

    Nope, I'm just old for my age. You can have fun with your shootemups, but I've never seen a system get a crowd of people going like an Atari 2600 with 4 player Pong and 2 sets of paddle controllers. It's just as intriguing to people as it was when the system was brand new. I've seen groups of kids choose Pong over Halo (when it and the XBox were new). Don't get my wrong, I enjoy first person shooters, but I always loved my 2600, although I have an SNES, N64, and Gamecube, along with a gameboy advance.

    Damm, i forgot Crash Bash! That was another brilliant co-op campaign, the game modes were insanely fun. I wish they did remakes of classics.

    Sonic 2 on megadrive, don't think I ever completed it though. Used to leave the console on overnight so I didn't have to start the whole thing again but most of the time my Mum or someone would turn it off and I'd always be going from the start.

    Lots of N64 games too; OoT, Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, Turok 2.

    Oh god, I hated not being able to save my game. Like when I didn't have a memory card for my PS1, or when I got really far on a game, didn't save, and the whole unit falls off the shelf, or something.
