Brutally disappointed that Wii Shop doesn't have "GoldenEye" up, and from what I've read, it's probably not happening anytime soon.

Maybe it's because I grew up in the early 80s, but I wouldn't consider anything after Sega Genesis or Super Nintendo a classic video game. It's too modern, and the graphics aren't crappy enough. Crappy graphics and sound effects are a must.

My top-five classics
1. Tecmo Bowl -- we'll still break this out on some nights if we're drunk enough.
2. RBI Baseball -- my proudest college moment: pitching a nine-inning no-hitter by using Mike Krukow.
3. Contra -- the all-time classic code: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, B, A, start. Most people liked the "S" spread gun, but I always prefered the "M" machine gun.
4. Mike Tyson's Punchout -- i bought this on Wii Shop recently, breezed through the game like it was nothing, then got to Soda Popinski and got knocked the f**k out. my reflexes are dusted. i'm a good 15 years past my video-game prime.
5. Rygar -- you might have preferred Zelda, but i thought the levels and bosses and overall navigation/gameplay of Rygar was more clever and fun.

Sega's Mortal Kombat blood activation code = A B A C A B B (during copyrights and credits screen at start) and you will hear the Scorpion chant "Get over here!"

Does anyone else remember Tempest? I loved that one.

I remember meeting Reptile for the first time when I was 6 years old. He killed me, of course.

That reminds me... Anyone else have fond memories of playing on a Vectrex?

I just played that last week. It's hard as hell, but very fun.

These types of games use vector monitors. Very clear and bright. I also, had a chance to work on a GRAVITAR last week that used one of these monitors. But my favorite has to be Star Wars and Asteroids.

We had a full-size Frogger arcade game at my father's house when I was growing up. I think he bought it rather cheaply at a random auction or something. No idea what ultimately happened to it.

StarFox was a close second.

Don't try to argue, these are facts.

Banjo-Kazooie, surprisingly, was also a CLASSIC. As good as Mario 64, imo.

I'm all about the (somewhat) classic PC gaming. I'll break out Half Life and Deus Ex on occasion just for some fun. Tokyo, now that I've got my DS all homebrew'd up, I'll be playing Earthbound for the first time. Chrono Trigger, too. My classics: Final Fantasy 3, Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past, Yoshi's Island.

I will challenge anyone to a game of galaga, anywhere any time

Prepare to say goodbye to two months or so of your life.

Worth it though.

The 3rd barrel stage of DOnkey Kong is killing me right now. I can't get past it.
