Favourite Classic Video Games

Hey everyone, so I recently downloaded a couple of emulators so i could play some classic mario kart games. It got me thinking of this topic. “Favourite Classic Video Games.” Heres a list of my favourite video games I’d consider classic, or are classics. (It really all depends on your age and how long you’ve been playing video games for) I’d say let’s keep the games to at least before 2010

  • Mario Kart 64
  • Mario Kart Doble Dash
  • The Simpsons Hit and Run
  • Destroy all Humans!
  • Shadow Of the Colossus
  • Driver 3
  • Pac Man
  • Lego Star Wars the Complete Saga
  • Mario Kart DS
  • The Elder Scrolls Arena
  • The Elder Scrolls Morrowind
  • The Elder Scrolls Oblivion
  • Castle Crashers
  • Star Wars Battlefront II (2005)
  • Saints Row 2
  • The Spongebob Squarepants Movie

I’m sure this list of games could go on forever, now it’s your turn, what are your favourite classic video games?

I admit I cheated off the original OP but I was completely blanking and I looked to get some ideas and it turned into ‘Oh yeah definitely gotta include that one’ and ‘Wow how did I forget this one?’ and before I knew it I had copied a lot of it haha. You have very refined taste my friend if I do say so myself!
Oh also Mario Kart double dash! It’s my favorite in the series and I don’t care how much hate it gets :laughing:


Mario Kart DS is the best mario kart


Sometimes you just need a refresher.


Maybe not classics per sey but they are to me:

They are all for psx except Supaplex and Advanced Wars

Final Fantasy Tactics
Supaplex for DOS
Final Fantasy 8 and 9 in no particular order
Advanced Wars
Resident Evil 2
Parasite Eve 2

edit/ I said Supaplex for DOS that is also for Amiga and not technically a console but you can emulate the amiga with ease.


I would say;

Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Chrono Trigger
Crash Bandicoot 3
Ratchet & Clank 3
And if Oblivion is considered a classic then yeah, Oblivion.


Oh my god I forgot Ratchet & Clank!!! :man_facepalming:


Fallout New Vegas
Silent Hill 2
Spongebob Battle from Bikini Bottom
Castlevania SOTN
Resident Evil 1, 2, 3
Halo 3
Ultimate Doom & Doom II

…just to name a few.


I may as well list some of the classics I enjoyed.

  • Kirby’s Adventure, the game that got me into gaming, and the first game I ever fully beat.
  • Super Mario Bros 1, 2, and 3 (I probably enjoyed 2 the most (it is game of the year, after all :wink:))
  • Mario Kart: Super Circuit
  • Punch Out
  • The Legend Of Zelda
  • Sonic CD
  • Double Dragon (I forget which one it was, though it might have been the second one)

That is some unstable ground you tread upon there, friend.


Where the hell is


I prefer Melee.


I would have mentioned it, but I haven’t played any Smash game earlier than Brawl, and I don’t feel that Brawl is old enough to be considered classic yet.


Oh yeah me too! Too bad it won’t be at Evo 2019 :sob: :-1:
