    Of those, I played Medievil, Crash Bandicoot(s), Spyro, Ocarina of Time, Majora's Mask, Pokemon, and Super Smash Bros. All great games. Ah, good times.

    A few weeks ago I found my all-time favorite game. Old, new, it's the one I re-play endlessly.

    Panzer General II

    Yes it's a war game, turn based, but really it is like chess but with a bigger board and more pieces and pieces you can upgrade, with a campaign mode. The AI is very well balanced, and the gamer community build dozens of additional scenarios. Much as I love the immersion of modern games, PG2 is the only game that I'm still playing 20 years later (released 1997).

    When I saw the title of this thread, my mind automatically went to pen-and-paper face-to-face role playing games, like 1st edition Dungeons and Dragons or pre-5th edition Tunnels and Trolls. I don't play either anymore, but that's old-school gaming to me. Much fun in the 70s....

    As for video games... Gauntlet, anyone? I found a version of it online that was very true to the original, and had a blast playing it, not too long ago.

    I loved playing Soul Calibur 1 on the Dreamcast. My favorite character was Ivy, and I got really good with her whip-sword. Such fun. Haven't played that game in ages, though.

    Although I was an infant when D&D first debuted, I still have my copy. It's well-used and there are a ton of papers (half-finished and complete characters, DM notes and etc) stuffed into it.

    Also, I have Streets of Rage 1 and 2, but it's just not the same as it was on my old Sega. One of the better sound tracks around.

    My husband recently purchased Street Fighter for us. I forgot how hard old school games were/are!

    The recent Good Old Games sale sent me on a bit of a tear. I recently finished a Heroes 3 campaign and I'm working my way through a few old school RTS games. I also filled out my library and added some childhood favourites like Commandos and the entire 3DO Might and Magic line-up. Availability on the classics has really never been better, on PC at least.
