    I don't think Atari had DD -- NES sure did, though. :)

    How did I forget the GameCube?! My favourite game was the four disc, del shaded epic - Tales of Symphonia

    Galactic, definitely wasn't a Nintendo system. Can't remember what it was, but I'm sure of that much.

    Ghostbusters is a contender for me on Amstrad CPC. I loved kitting out the Beetle!

    And wasn't Rogue Squadron on the N64? I think Rogue Leader was Gamecube. I didn't play the latter, but the former was great.

    I'm disappointed that isn't on the SNES Mini, as it never got a European release on the SNES, and I never had a Nintendo DS.

    I remember the graphics to that being amazing at the time. I bought it from a friend on cassette, but he had a strop and I ended up having to give it him back!

    Amstrad CPC: Fantasy World Dizzy

    NES: Snake Rattle 'n' Roll

    Sega Mega Drive: Streets of Rage 2

    Super Nintendo: Terranigma

    PC / Windows: The Curse of Monkey Island

    Nintendo 64: The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

    Playstation 2: GTA San Andreas

    Nintendo Gamecube: Super Smash Bros. Melee

    Nintendo Wii: Okami

    Nintendo Wii U: Mario Kart 8

    Arcade: That 4-player The Simpsons game where random people came and joined in at any time.

    Best console ever: Super Nintendo

    That was difficult. I didn't bother thinking about it too much, because more and more awesomeness kept coming to mind, so a special mention for Perfect Dark on N64. The only easy one was the SNES, even though that has more of my favourites than any other console. I loved Terranigma so much, even ahead of playing another RPG, Secret of Mana, on 2-player with my bro'. I think the SNES influenced my adult tastes too - moving from Secret of Mana and Terranigma to Studio Ghibli, and similar music from the games.

    Yep. :) I signed up for alerts direct from Nintendo, and got one about 2 hours after their alert was sent out. Have you signed up for stock alerts from the likes of Amazon?

    Ah, Streets of Rage. I miss some aspects of old game, when you only had three buttons, and one of them called in a napalm strike.

    Nah. I probably would've got one if they'd been easily available, but I have more than enough other stuff to play :)

    Sometimes I'm jealous that I can't play these great console games, sometimes I'm thankful I saved the money...

    It sounds sad, but some of my favourite memories are from games, though usually multiplayer, which doesn't make it quite as sad. :) You could try an emulator, or find some that are playable online. I haven't ever bought a console actually, apart from a SNES of my own a few years ago so my brother could have the one bought for us, and then the SNES Mini recently, which isn't out for a few months yet.

    You definitely like your Mario! :D I wasn't a big fan of Paper Mario for some reason. Ni no Kuni is one of the games I'd most like to play - it has a soundtrack by my favourite composer, Joe Hisaishi, and looks like an amazing game on top of that.

    No, the main reason I can't play today's video games is because both the "first-person" view and the 3D motion affects my motion sickness.

    That's a shame. Most of my favourites are these sort of graphics:
    http://fantasyanime.com/legacy/images/terranVWF.png

    Though there are some sequences with 3D-ish motion in that one. There are point and click games, that don't have any of that sort of movement as far as I can remember. Games like The Curse of Monkey Island and Grim Fandango are really good fun (both PC, cheap as they're old and will also work on old PCs).

    I just happened to think Mario Sunshine WAS the best gamecube game. I played the hell out of that one.

    i like the Paper Mario franchise, but I'll admit it was close between that and Zelda: Twilight Princess. (<_<) I don't want to admit how much time I spend on the WiiFit... There really just wasn't that much else on the console!

    Honestly, I could keep going for the SNES, PS and PS2. Those were glorious systems. Still, there's great stuff coming up for the PS4 and Switch plus the 3DS keeps me ticking...

    I didn't like Mario Sunshine much for some reason, then played it years after it was released and wondered why I didn't. Perhaps I expected too much after Mario 64, which was magical at first, and still has something special today (I even tried it with a SNES pad on an emulator last week, and it was great!).

    I only played Wii Fit once. Maybe some were hard to find or didn't get much promotion, but I think the Wii has some brilliant games; Ōkami (maybe you had it on PS2?), Xenoblade Chronicles, Super Smash Bros. Brawl, Wario Ware: Smooth Moves (fantastic fun with a few players), Metroid Prime 3, Mario Galaxy 2, Little King's Story, the best multiplayer Bomberman I've played, Monkey Island, World of Goo, Bit Trip...there were loads more I wanted to play, but it was an era when I stopped playing by myself so much, and these days I only really play games with friends. Though I played Breath of the Wild at a friend's on the Wii U, and that's very tempting...

    I totally played Okami on PS2... Didn't like X-Chronicles. Was too sad to find someone to play Brawl with. By the time WW came out, I'd already moved onto the PS3. Though I admit I did like Mario Galaxy 1 and 2 quite a lot.

    Breath of Fire is amazing. And I'll admit right here, right now, I'm dying to play the new Kingdom Hearts 3.
