Treasure Mountain! was easily my favourite childhood game, no question :D
I remember having so much fun catching those elves, getting those keys, and watching that guy's face puff up and let off steam!
Good times *sniff*, good times.

Rampage because I had it on an Atari 7800 which had cheap and unique controllers that broke and were irreplaceable so I was always longing to play it again

For me there was a few, (Since I am really bad at picking an absolute favorite of anything.)


PC
-Lego Island
-Lego Island 2
-Lego Rock Raiders
-Lego Racers
-Pajama Sam
-Freddi Fish
-Spy Fox

Non-PC
-Sonic 2
-Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, 3. (Though only a little of 2 and 3 since someone else owned those.)
-Dragon Spirit: The New Legend
-Jackal
-Donkey Kong Country ("2 player" for the win.)
-Legend of Zelda (A few of the 2D games.)
-Pokemon Yellow (I still wonder how I beat that game without reading skills.)

Yeah, I guess I played games quite a bit when I was young.

Lego Racer is where it's at! Very few racing games gave me that much fun.

So, I'm not really the kind of person that does this, but I just downloaded a Genesis emulator and NOSTALGIA OVERLOAD WHEN I DOWNLOAD ALL THE GAMES FROM MY CHILDHOOD.

Right now this includes the aforementioned Tiny Toons Adventures, The Lion King, and Mickey Mouse: World of Illusion.

I'm so happeh. T_T

I played a Dune RTS on a dos computer. (Well, dos only because the windows files were corrupted and the OS wouldn't launch so I had to learn a little dos languages pretty early on).

Oregeon Trail (FTW, now, there's zombie Oregeon trail!
http://hatsproductions.com/organtrail.html )!!!EPICSAUCE!!

Latter on, FFII for SNES and Legend of Zelda for SNES!

We also had a turbo graphics 16 and an atari. The only Atari game I really remember enjoying is pitfall.

For the N64-Mario Cart and Goldeneye (FTW!!!!)

JOJ650s, I can see eye to eye with you.

I remember the old Lego games very well. They did what very few games could for me, not only because Legos were the bomb back then (when did that end?) and because my older cousin (who I may have seen for the last time about a week ago :( ) found it cool. And being the little kid looking for a role model I was, anything he did, I found cool.
