Why have 5 when you can have 10? I don't mean to shameless plug on this thread just for "the views". I would like to give credit to the thread for inspiring me to make this video.

1 Pokemon ruby my first game.

2 Super smash bros melee

3 mario kart double dash

4 Raiden II wich i played at an arcade machine at a used car dealer it was a raiden arcade machine for 2 players.

5 Pokemon mystery dungeon blue rescue team.

after explorers of the sky these series went downhill explorers of the sky was the best though so much replay value since there were some dungeons in blue rescue team wich were nearly im possbible especially for recruiting the dungeon bosses.



Honorable mentions since the ones in the list were the games I had as a kid early on still though these games here wich I played are also from before I became a collector many years have passed before I went on that collectors road.

Mario & luigi partners in time
Fire emblem shadow dragon
mario galaxy series
second samurai sega megadrive at a friends place


My child hood games wich I still have bad dreams about:

Mario party series
Your Stylish Sword Master!

Damn uh...

Super Mario World  (First console game I ever played)
Timesplitters 2 (Absolutely fell in love with this game and this franchise)
Goldeneye 64 (The Predecessor to Timesplitters, and the game that got me to start watching and fall in love with the James Bond film franchise)
Mario Kart 64 (Fucking Blue shell, what else can I say, this was a game most of my family joined in playing)
Tetris Attack  (Tetris in general, but this one the most.  This being the other game my family jumped in on... followed by Pokemon Puzzle League, but it's the same thing)

Honorable mention... Pieces for SNES.  Never owned that game, but I rented it from Hollywood Video, Blockbuster Video, and Video Central probably like once a month, and EVERYONE in my family would jump in on this game.  No clue why we never bought it.

I'm getting such a kick out of reading all of these! I figure I can do mine. These aren't in any particular order, except for the last one.

Breath of Fire: My very first RPG. You never forget your first, am I right? I received it as a birthday gift from a friend of mine when I turned ten. Prior to this, I played the Marios and the Mega Mans and the Sonics and so on, but Breath of Fire just flabbergasted me. The game wasn't over in an afternoon! The game had a story with lots of dialogue! The game had two fierce female characters that I could use in battle! Breath of Fire started my love for the RPG genre.

Mega Man X: Of course, before I even heard of Breath of Fire, I was playing Mega Man X once a day. We received a Super Nintendo as a Christmas present and everyone received one game along with it. Mine was Mega Man X and...I can still play this game like a boss. I wish Capcom would get their **** together and make a Mega Man X9 already.

Chrono Trigger: Yep. Not much to say that hasn't already been said. This game rocks and is still easy to pick up and play.

Kirby Super Star: This was a wonderful game that made me wish for a four player multi-tap. Since the game was two-players, my siblings would always argue over who got to play the helper. There were so many great memories from Spring Breeze all the way to The Arena.

Secret of Mana: This was -THE- game that defined my childhood because it combined action, adventure, and RPG elements into one fantastic cartridge. All of this, combined with the gorgeous presentation and soundtrack make it my number one pick. Whether I was playing it by myself or playing it with a friend or family member, I always enjoyed going through this game. Like Chrono Trigger, I have no problems popping it back in these days.

Honorable Mentions: Mega Man X3, Mega Man 3, Mario 3 and Final Fantasy II (IV).
