    I heard a weird remix of Relm's theme song from Final Fantasy VI and it reminded me how great a game it was/is. I'd say it's my favorite game ever, among Zelda: Link to the Past, Super Metroid, and some other great SNES titles...

    What are your all time favorites? Mine:

    Final Fantasy VI
    Tekken (ongoing, current version is 5, my favorite is Tekken Tag Tournament)
    Zelda: A Link to the Past
    Smash Bros. Melee
    Super Metroid
    Final Fantasy Tactics
    Initial D (arcade, not PS)
    Zelda: Ocarina of Time
    Katamari Damacy
    Double Dragon II

    On another video game note.. really looking forward to the PS3 in November and the Nintendo Revolution around the same time, and of course, I'm dying to play the new Zelda on Gamecube..

    FFVII always bothered me that it was the game that got all the morons into RPGs, especially FFs.

    FFIX I thought was alright. Nowhere near Tactics or 6 though

    My favorite:

    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    The rest of the top five in no particular order:

    Metal Gear Solid
    Earthbound
    Half-Life
    Grand Theft Auto (1)

    Other good ones:

    Shenmue
    Smash Bros. series
    Quake 2
    Half-life 2
    Zelda: Majora's Mask
    Zelda: Link to the Past
    Zelda: Link's Awakening
    Zelda: Wind Waker
    The rest of the GTA series
    Castlevania series
    Super Metroid
    Power Stone
    Metal Slug series
    Warioworld series
    Sonic the Hedgehog series
    And of course Mario Bros. series

    And Brian, though I've never liked RPGs, I'm currently playing FFVII. I'm actually really enjoying it, and thinking maybe there is something for me in the genre. I suppose I've earned your scorn?

    Zelda: A Link to The Past -- Absolutely my fave. #2 was my only PC game: Falcon V -- amazing, amazing. Others: Arkanoid -- simple. fun. Super Mario Brothers -- the original. It rules. The Adventures of Zelda -- again, the original. SMB3 -- the followup the joke that was SMB2 should have been Tokyo, Hogan's Alley? Awesome choice. BION, I really like flipping those cans... I can't forget Super Mario World, mainly because this guy was very cute: [​IMG] I probably shouldn't vote since I haven't played a video game since the SNES, though I've toyed with the idea to check out the Zelda series. Regards, Huntsman

    I liked all the old Lucasarts games - the Monkey Island series, Zak McCracken, Full Throttle, Loom, all those ones.

    Smash TV - just d/led the SNES version, still fun.

    Premiere on Amiga 500.

    Max Payne.

    Metal Gear Solid.

    Doom.

    Super Mario 3 and Super Mario World.

    Pretty much any Capcom fighting game, especially the Marvel/Capcom collaborations.

    I haven't bought a game in a while, but I'm considering picking up Eidos' new Rogue Trooper game.
