That was how I first subscribed to Nintendo Power. Dragon Warrior was my first RPG and it caused a curse on me, because after that I couldn't get enough for a long time. My favorite has to be Final Fantasy 3 on the SNES. I spent months on that.
I recently pulled out all my old NES and SNES games. I started an old game on Dragon Warrior II, and using GameFAQs I figured out where I'd left it like 7 years ago. I still can't beat it. Getting from the shrine to Hargon's castle is a bitch. You use up all your MP and then you have to get through the castle. Pisses me off.
Have to add Maniac Mansion to the list. I loved that game when I was younger and just went through it again and still enjoyed it.
All the Icom games were sweet too. I had Deja Vu, Shadowgate, and Uninvited on Nintendo. Shadowgate was the hardest to figure out but all were great. The music for Deja Vu totally got you in the old school, 30's detective mode, and Uninvited was pretty scary as a kid. I had a two pack of Deja Vu I and II for the old original Macintosh that my mom got from work when they upgraded their computers, which I played to death.
