    New or old, what are your favorite video games?

    I'm honestly a classic girl. I prefer things that are played on Atari, NES, SNES and N64. I also really enjoy arcade games. I would LOVE to have a Galaga arcade and maybe a Centipede arcade, that would be bad ass.

    Me and Mine collect all the consoles(tv and handheld). We've got everything from the Atari up to the new 3Ds. We're investing in a Virtual Boy sometime soon.

    Our idea of fun is going to the mall and playing House of the Dead. Nothing better then two grown adults wielding plastic guns with a group of kids a quarter of our age watching. lol.

    A few of my favorite games though?

    *Pong
    *Galaga
    *Pole Position
    *Golden Eye
    *Super Mario World
    *Super Mario Bro's 3
    *Battleship
    *Mortal Kombat
    *Street Fighters
    *Kaboom
    *Super Mario Bro's
    *Tetris
    *Mario Paint
    *Battle Toads
    *Frogger
    *Pac Man
    *Aladdin
    *Mega Man

    There are many more, I just can't think of all of them.

    Hrm yes, plenty of new games are cool, but the classics will always rule. Galaga is definitely one of my all time fav classics. Before I left Cali we had a HotD at Rossi's, and since I had a key for the machines, I'd play for free all the time.

    Galaga, Tempest, Centipede, Arkanoid, Dig Dug, Pac-Man, Ms. Pac Man...

    I wonder if I can get MAME to spit out counts for all the games I've played... anything with a count not 0 would give a good picture. Otherwise there's just too many.

    I'm also quite a fan of Pinball, something that is a dying art.

    Haven't played Fallout or Dragon Age but heard good things :)

    Maybe one day.

    Today I got the PS1 and PS2 off of the kids Dad to borrow for a while. It was ours lol

    I taught my eldest to play one of my highschool faves "bust a groove".

    played an hour of Breath of Fire IV. Looked at my old game saves... 80 hours in 3 different slots :p

    I am going to check out all the old games I used to play gonna be fun!!!

    "Black" didn't work so I am gutted :( Really wanted to give that another go.

    I may even get out the Sega Master System II LMAO!
