- The Lost World: Jurassic Park (PS1)
- Crash Team Racing (PS1)
- Godzilla: Destroy All Monsters, Melee (Xbox)
- Star Wars Battlefront (Xbox)
- Bubble Bobble (My copy is on the Xbox in a release called Taito Legends)
- Mechassault (Xbox)
- Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic (Xbox)
- Godzilla: Save the Earth (Xbox)
- Star Wars Battlefront 2 (Xbox)
- Peter Jackson's King Kong (Xbox)

I dunno if we're counting the gen after that as "childhood"... in my case it's more like "teenage-hood", but if we are, then:

- Godzilla: Unleashed (Wii)
- Dragon Age: Origins (Xbox 360)

The Crash Bandicoot trilogy on PS1 and Super Mario 64 were among the first games I've ever played as a kid. They're definitely classics and are my favorite games from the late 90s.

Birth through high school in random order: Space Invaders, Astrosmash, Night Stalker, Duck Hunt, Super Mario Bros 1-2-3, Super Mario World, Super Mario Land, Castlevania series, Contra series, NFL Gameday (screw Madden! :xilien: ), Godzilla: Monster of Monsters, Bubble Bobble, Mappy-Land, Sonic 1-3/S&Knuckles series, TMNT2: The Arcade Game, TMNT IV: Turtles in Time, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter 2.

College years: GTA series. Other than GTA, I still only played my old Intellivision-Super Nintendo games for the most part during college :lol: And yes, my old Intellivision system *still* works (though some of the game cartridges are hit & miss in terms of functionality).

Adult years: Atari Godzilla (DAMM+STE), Red Dead Redemption & Undead Nightmare, God Of War series, Batman-Arkham series, GTA IV-V, New Super Mario Bros series, Super Mario 3D Land & World.

Sadly, I've rarely had much time to play video games over the last 10 years or so other than short spurts here & there (It took me nearly 2 years or longer to beat most of the above games due to how infrequently I play). I prefer traveling around Southeast Asia in my free time, but I still get the itch now and then to just sit down and play on a rainy afternoon....

Sonic the Hedgehog, despite not being my favorite franchise in gaming I do own the most stuff related to it.

Darkstalkers, that series is my all time favorite, I still remember the first ever time I played the game at a Godfathers pizza

Mega man, while it was the 2d classics that introduced me to the series, Legends is my favorite.

Tetris, got to give it up to my all time favorite game
For great justice, and fruit pies!

Super Mario bros 3. IMO STILL the best Mario game ever. The epic airships. The tanooki suit, the hammer suit. This is one game that never gets old to me.

The classic Battlefront games. I still play them on my original Xbox. I actually own Battlefront II for PSP, Xbox, and PC. Best games ever.
May or may have not just came here for the Ultra-Thread.

Wisper15: Dude, you won the whole da(m)n thread; no need to cause me to collapse my lungs and make me feel as if Destoroyah got into my house.

Living Corpse: This is V of victory. Plain Dan has won the thread.

GodzillavsZilla: The fact that Just Plain Dan's signature looks like quotes by critics about a movie on the back of a dvd... except we're not critics.... we're much worse :lol:.
