Name your favorite video game that is older than you are!

Post by Shaan Joshi on Wed Jun 26, 2013 6:33 am

I was curious to see what everyone's favorite game is that is older than they are, because that means you would have had to find this game on your own accord, as opposed to it coming out when you were alive. 

Personally, mine would have to be The Secret of Monkey Island (it came out in 1990, I was born in late 1991). I'm always skeptical of humor in games, because so many things can go wrong, but LucasArts pulled it off flawlessly. It's still fun to play in this day and age, and there's also the re-releases with HD graphics and voice acting! 

What about you?

Do you know how friggin hard it was to answer this question?????!!!!  Born in 1979 you've pretty much left me with a choice of Galaxian, Space Invaders, and Pong!!!  So I will go with Galaxian.  I've never played an original Pong and Galaxian is way more fun than Space Invaders.

Yeah, Shaan dude, you just made a very depressing topic here. Being born in 1983 means that my choices aren't much more varied than Segisaurus.

I will go with Space Invaders though, since that's a game that I can still enjoy to this day. In fact, I downloaded the SNES version off the Virtual Console on my Wii.

While I'm on a roll, should I just go ahead and make fun of Nier, which is a silly game for silly people. Very Happy

Hm...that limits me to NES and SMS games, so I guess it's a 3-way tie between Phantasy Star, Final Fantasy 3, and Mega Man 2.
