Not to mention the fact that the villain proves that clowns are just E-E-EVIL!

Zelda SNES LttP

But if I was stranded on a deserted island with one game I think mario 3 or world would have more replay value.

Final Fantasy 10 doesn't count even a LITTLE as "old school", and 7 is arguable. The one I remember the most fondly has to be Bubble Bobble. The storyline was cracked, the bad guys were hilarious, the game play was addictive, and the execution was pure magic.

On the other hand, the one that still plagues my nightmares is Prince of Persia. The original. It always went something like this...

~ steps out of opening screen, falls in a pit, and dies ~ Well, crap. ~ restarts, jumps over pit, triggers spike trap, and dies ~ Dammit... ~ restarts, jumps over pit, jumps over spike trap, walks under collapsing ceiling, and dies ~ Alright, !?*# this !?*# ing game! ~ turns off NES ~

Remember that "Old School" is different to different people.  To me, "Old School" means mid to late 80s, but to a younger person it could mean mid to late 90s or even early 2000s.  :-)

Let me put it this way... If you are old enough to register on the site at all, FFX is pushing the definition, lol. Of course, I do see your point... But FFX is only a few years old. If I accept FFX as old school, then I have to accept MYSELF as a living, breathing fossil, and that I just won't do.

*ahem*

As the starter of the thread, I'm just going to say the older the game, the better as far as designations of 'old school' go.

Ok, so Metal Gear Solid doesn't count?  That was a bit ago... 1998.

Magnificent game.

mario brothers, Duck Hunt, Sim Towers, pac man, ms. pac man, the original simpson arcade game.  Does Crono Trigger count?

I would count it. Anything Playstation era and on is open to debate, but I think EVERYONE can agree that the SNES/Genesis back would certainly qualify. Any dissenting voters?

I'm not going to say that anything 'doesn't count', but if you say your favorite 'old school game' is Little Big Planet 2 (picking something randomly from the recent spate of PS3 commercials), I'm going to seriously worry.   ;)

I know this might seem a bit childish but... Banjo-Kazooie and Banjo-Tooie were and still are my all time fav games of the old school if you will. So amazing and iconic. It really apealed to me more then anything around that time. Well, except maybe for Conkers Bad Fur day. ;)

Wyrd just earned himself my vote for "guy we put in charge of action game design FOREVER". He clearly knows quality when he sees it. And childish? Never! Awesome games, all three. Also, anyone else play and love the Worms games? "Oh, dear..." *KABOOM!*

Guantlet was my favorite. Remember the wizard needs food badly. I know it isnt a video game but a good game of Jenga when drunk is always fun.

I had forgotten about that one.  I remember when you try and use the scalpel with the girl on most stuff she's like "I can't.  My therapist and I have an agreement".  Awesome game.

It was the first game I'd played where you couldn't die. I thought that was brilliant - and the options of being able to choose what you talk about to other characters was just terrific. I wish they'd make another one!

How on earth did I miss this one? Would somebody fill me in on exactly when, and what, this game was? ~looks curious~
