Prince of Persia - PC Games
Notes: Same as above, I used to play this at the friend's house and I thought it was awesome. The animation may seem awkward nowadays but back then it was quite revolutionary. A very nice game.

Super Mario World - Super famicom and SNES

F-Zero - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: It was also one of the first game released on the Super Nintendo. The graphics, animation and music were very good. You could really feel the speed. A very fun game.

Pilotwings - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: This one is rather forgotten nowadays. It was one of the first game released on the Super Nintendo and I just loved the concept. A very original game.

The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past - Super famicom and SNES

Super Mario Kart - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: I spent hours on this one. Nowadays, we are very familiar with the concept but, back then, it was really new. Some great fun and my favorite mario kart version.

Street Fighter II - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: Back then, I bought the Japanese version for 100 euros because I didn't want to wait for the European version. A great classic and it remains one of my favorite games 16 years later.

Out of This World - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: I guess everyone has forgotten this game but I didn't! A great adventure with a revolutionary animation. The only low point is that it was too short!

Flashback: The Quest for Identity - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: Similar to "Out of This world" in style, I was more a fan of "Out of this world" but Flashback was the most famous one. It indeed had better graphics and animation and the adventure was quite fascinating aswell.

NBA Jam - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: it was not as good as the arcade game but it was so much fun. Maybe my favorite multiplayer game. You could have 4 players playing alltogether (something completely new at the time).

Super Bomberman - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: Another great multiplayer game. Difficult to chose between this one, Mario kart and NBA Jam for the best multiplayer game. As NBA Jam, you could have 4 players. Loads of fun.

Donkey Kong Country - Super famicom and SNES
Notes: It was released in the last years of the Super Nintendo and they basically gave everything they got. Back then, it was really revolutionary with its gorgeous 3D graphics and animation. It was a very fun game and I spent many hours on this one.

Sonic the Hedgehog - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Notes: Back then, I was a fan of Sonic. I guess I'm still a fan of Sonic who is, in my opinion, much more fun than Mario. It's a pity that Sega lost the "Video game" war and don't make any console anymore. Back in the 90's, it was unthinkable to imagine a Sega game on a Nintendo platform or a game combining Mario and Sonic.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Notes: I first played this at a friend's house and years later I got myself a Megadrive with those 3 games. Sega improved the music/graphics/animation and the game was still very addictive. This time, you could even have 2 players playing at the same time.

Aladdin - Sega Genesis and Mega Drive
Notes: Back in those days, they didn't make exactly the same game on all the platforms. The Super Nintendo Aladdin was pretty good but this one was just great. I wished I played it more because it had gorgeous graphics and animation.

Ridge Racer - PlayStation
Notes: Finally I traded the good old Super Nintendo for a brand new Playstation (later A.K.A. Playstation 1). My first game was Ridge Racer. Even if there was only 1 track (so cheap...), I just loved this game and spent hours playing it.

Destruction Derby - PlayStation
Notes: I'm pretty sure everybody forgot this game but it was so f*cking awesome! I will never forget the sight of the huge "360!" on your screen meaning you just crashed your opponent and got the maximum points. There was a sequel which was much more realistic but not as fun as this one. A great game.

Notes: My favorite Playstation game. I spent hours playing this with my brother in the dark. The mood was just great. I finished this one, number 2 and number 3 as well. The sequels were nice and better on a technical level but my favorite remains the 1st one because the focus was more on the mood than the action/shooting stuff.

Final Fantasy VII - PlayStation
Notes: I didn't spend much time playing this one because I was kind of losing interest in video games back then (girls/party/drinking/smoking shit...you know the drill...). But this game was beautiful and was such a great adventure.

GoldenEye 007 - Nintendo 64
Notes: Back in those days, my little brother decided to switch the good old Playstation 1 for a Nintendo 64. I was never really happy with this choice and the only 2 games I remember really enjoying on this machine were GoldenEye and Mario Kart 64. I used to play Goldeneye with 3 of my buddies and we had a awesome time, killing each other...

Mario Kart 64 - Nintendo 64
Notes: There is a big debat about which Mario Kart is the best, the one on the Super Nintendo or the one on the Nintendo 64 ? Difficult to choose, but there was a definite improvement and it was the possibility to have 4 players playing at the same time! Like Goldeneye, I used to play this with my 3 buddies and we had a blast...

Grand Theft Auto III - PlayStation 2
Notes: One of my favorite games of all the time. Even though I never owned a Playstation 2, I played this game like crazy until I finished it. A great game with a lot of liberty. You could do whatever you wanted for a while and then get back to the mission if you felt like it. A great concept.

Notes: Before getting a Nintendo Wii, we had for a while a Nintendo GameCube. It was nice but it didn't play that much. The only game I really spent some time on was Need for Speed: Underground. Completely unrealistic (F*ck Gran Turismo!) but a lot ot fun!

Notes: My last addiction. I bought it thinking "I'm going to play a couple of times for fun and put it away forever". I ended up playing everyday at least 1 hour for 6 months (Seriously...). My wife got pretty mad and couldn't wait for me to stop. I just couldn't. I had to master all those songs... Anyway, I bought World Tour but even if it was fun, it was a little too commercial for me ("Beat it", "Spiderwebs",...Come on !!!). I still play from time to time.

UFC 2009 Undisputed - PlayStation 3
Notes: Following my project "try to socialize, make some friends!", 2 colleagues of mine came to my place with a Playstation to do some gaming. It has been a while for me and I don't know if I will do this often (I don't like people!) but we have done it twice and it was pretty cool! Our favorite game was...UFC ! I thought it would be pretty lame but we had such a laugh playing against each other or, should I say, beating the sh*t out of each other! Great fun...

DiRT 2 - PlayStation 3
Notes: During those gaming evenings (see comment above), we played Gran Turismo 5 but honestly, I wasn't really impressed. Allright, it looks pretty good, there are loads of cars, options, stuff, whatever,... but it was kinda boring... On the other hand, I was really impressed by Colin McRae:DiRT2. It looked gorgeous and the way you could totally smash your car was really awesome. A great game!

Thanks for reminding me of Out of this World! I'd forgotten about it...such a great game.

Surprised to not see ChronoTrigger on here though. By far the best game I ever played. Nice list!

There's mine. Not a single common game between us, but that's because I have unhealthily niche interests.

@Pumpkinate, I don't agree with you. We are both fanatic fans of Sonic the Migthy Hedgehog!!!!

awesome list of games dude. I totally agree with a ton of them especially Need For Speed (eff Grand Turismo!) except I liked the Aladdin on SNES better. Other than that great!

Awesome list. I grew with most of these games as well. I remember when my older cousins had Super Mario World on the SNES like 15 years ago.
