Starting from 3rd Gen since that's as far back as my experience goes...

3rd Gen - NES/SMS
 - Super Mario 3: Flying around was so fun xD
 - Maniac Mansion: The point and click style was super unique at the time I played it (didn't play many on the PC until later in life)
 - River City Ransom: I loved how it had soft elements of an RPG while being a side scrolling beat-em-up

4th Gen - Genesis/SNES and Game Gear/Game Boy
 - Sonic The Hedgehog: I sucked at it, but it was a staple in video game history.
 - Pokemon Blue: A classic :P
 - Mortal Kombat: Seeing blood for the first time was almost taboo, I remember. xD Lots of buttons were mashed!

5th Gen - PS1/N64/Saturn
 - Super Smash Bros: Had an easier learning curve than Mortal Kombat, plus I was insta-cool when I brought my copy to summer camp. xD
 - The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time: I can always replay this game without getting sick of it. <3
 - Goldeneye 007: One of the most influential FPS games!

6th Gen - Dreamcast/PS2/Gamecube/Xbox and PSP/DS
 - Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas: Best 3D GTA in my humble opinion. (GTA V is a close second, followed by GTA 2.)
 - Super Monkey Ball: The first Gamecube game I played, and still haven't found another series like it.
 - Animal Crossing: You have no idea how important this game was to a girl that had no friends, lol. :,)

7th Gen - PS3/Wii/360 and PSV/3DS
 - Beyond Two Souls: The first game I played of that cinematic, Quantic Dream-style of games that I absolutely fell in love with.
 - Guitar Hero 3: This game was the gateway into a genre that I would sink so much of my life into xD Yay, plastic guitars!
 - Wii Sports: A great party game for literally anyone, and was great at showcasing the motion controls.

8th Gen - PS4/X1/Wii-U
 - Marvel's Spider-Man: An amazing open world game that looks absolutely amazing.
 - Monster Hunter World: Slaying big baddies with friends for the first time was super fun!
 - Wii Party U: A fun party game that utilized the game pad really well!

9th Gen - PS5/XSeX/Switch
 - Probably going to sit this one out until more games come out for this gen.

Howdy ya'll!! I'm Soda! I joined a few months ago, but figured I'd actually stop being a lurker and post something. The struggle of being antisocial, lol

Anyways, I'm 24, and have been collecting games since I was like 4 years old, starting with the PS1! Now that I'm an adult with actual income, I've gotten more serious about it, and I'm currently sitting at almost 1700 titles. It definitely helped that I worked at GameStop from 2014-2016, so my heaviest sets currently are Xbox 360 and Wii (don't judge, I secretly love the Wii's library :P). I also love collecting for the Nintendo DS, Nintendo 64, and PS1.

I'm absolutely loving my time on here so far! This site is like, the most accurate database for games that I have ever come across. I'm currently in the process of moving my inventory from Google Sheets to here, so it'll be a little bit before its totally up to date. The scan feature on Android has been SUPER helpful though, so I'm excited to scan all my non-cartridge stuff soon!

Looking forward to connecting with y'all and seeing everyone's collections! <3
