Fav Game from before you were born?

New Topic Respond to this Topic

My 11 yo brother is obsessed with 'nostalgic' games even though they came out before he was born. It's nice to see him appreciate everything from Half Life to original Mario. I'm wondering how common this with the NG age groups.

So what are some of your favourite games that are older than you? How do you feel about missing the hype surrounding their initial releases? Bonus points for obscurity.

Half-Life is the only good video game.

If anyone disagrees with me you will hear from my lawyer.


Every game I've ever plays was either released the year I was born or afterwards, at least for the ones I've ever owned.


As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be on Newgrounds.

I mean, there's a fair bit of choice, but you have to be into the old video game titles to have any interest in them, I can't really think of a game from before I was born what I would consider my favourite. The choice comes from games release on 1st, 2nd and 3rd generation consoles. I guess I'll go with Tetris.

That Tetris theme is pure 8-bit bliss.

Duck Hunt while drunk (or really stoned) with a group.

Well, until the light gun starts acting weird.

and it usually comes with classic Mario, so that's a plus.


Playing competitive Duck Hunt while wasted is the most fun you can have with a nes Zapper imo.

It escalates pretty quickly.

Well, I was born during the game crash of '83, so that leaves me even fewer choices!

Born in 89. Would be easy to just say the original mario or zelda I guess. Also half the nes library. But I want to go a bit further and say Dig Dug.

My favorite game before I was born is Super Mario World

The older King's Quest games. Older Monkey Island games.


How do you feel about missing the hype surrounding their initial releases?


Don't care whatsoever. I am more important than those who were around when they were released. They were released for me, whether I was there to see their launch or not. They were released to be formative for me so I could be a better game developer and draw deeper enjoyment from playing all games.


Bonus points for obscurity.


Cringe. Who cares about obscurity. You must love those cringey karma whores on reddit who post some stupid game no one has ever heard of with some title like: DAE?


Absolute pure cringe. Who cares if it's obscure. Grow up.

Megaman X barely hits the criteria, probably that.

Response to Fav Game from before you were born? 2019-08-04 23:21:19


Hmm, I'd say either Super Metroid or Earthbound/Mother 2. Both are incredible.

I really like this game, I forget the name but it was for the Nintendo 64 and it was a 3rd person (sometimes 1st person) shooter that was based around traveling around the galaxy helping ape people as a Male Soldier, Female soldier and Cyborg Dog. Its logo was simar to the xbox guide symbol. It was a great game. If anyone remembers the name of this one please DM me or reply!

The main threat in this game were ant people and they had green blood.
