    Pretty much the title. Just want to see what the community has to say about childhood favorites.

    Mine is all about my first console, the SNES and earthbound when I was 4 back in '95 and how my parents brought me to the local arcade back in the day (playing KI gold and area 51) dropping quarters just to play a few rounds in games like soul calibur, and racing games then going to KB toys to buy a new game for my N64 or snes. those were the golden days of gaming for me.

    There's too many to count for me. I remember playing Megaman 2, amongst 25+ other games that my brother had the NES back in... 89 I think. I was about 2 years old, and from that time I played regularly to this day.
    But a few games that have been totally magical for me has been:
    Megaman 2.
    Super Mario Bros. 2.
    Super Mario 64.
    Shadowrun (on SNES)

    The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time made my childhood.

    I'm a huge Zelda fan since then.

    My first console was the ps1, and I still have many fond memories of all the games I've played...
    Like Tombi/a, Um Jammer Lammy, Rescue Shot, Gekido, and many, many more that right now I can't remember.

    The only other zelda game that came close to the the majesty of OOT was The Wind Waker in my opinion.

    If you get the chance to, get yourself Wind Waker. This game is awesome. I still have my physical copy in my shelves, and this is majestic!

    I did multiple times. Are you seriously thinking that I didn't? lol.

    I litterally know everything out of this game. I even attempted glitched% speedruns out of it.

    Bro, Super Mario Sunshine! Literally, every gamecube game that included Mario. The Gamecube is by far one of my favorite consoles. Probably #1. It brings so many memories
