    I don't know about you guys, but I like to plug-in to the Old-School classics just as often as the new ones. What are your favorites, and if you're hardcore like me, what are you playing ATM?

    For me -

    CastleVania IV for the Super Nintendo

    [​IMG]

    Shadow Dancer - The Legend of Shinobi for the Sega Genesis

    [​IMG]

    Dune II for the PC

    [​IMG]

    Sonic and Knuckles for the Sega Genesis

    [​IMG]

    Donkey Kong Jr. for the Atari 7800

    [​IMG]

    Just to name a few. Post your favorites, discuss them...that's what it's here for!

    The Señor

    Not going to post sexy classic pictures because I have way too many pictures to post and/or I'm not playing any classics at the moment. I remember playing Sonic 3 and Knuckles and Sonic and Knuckles to death though. I got all the Chaos emeralds for each character and their uber form. Hyper Sonic was insanely fast! Loved it.

    I recently fired up Mega Man X3 for kicks on ZSNES. I got bored though :lol:

    I knew you'd be the first, NS...you appreciate the ROOTS! w00t! I've beaten the game fully as well...Hyper Knuckles is my favorite. Smash into the walls and BOOM!!!! All enemies dead! :p

    I posted the pristine pics of yesteryear to remind some of the younger, less informed members of the quality that is old-school gaming. :) ;)

    More random retrogaming:

    I catch myself playing the 1942 vertical shooter games a lot as well. UN Squadron was also a great game and still is. Games these days rarely test the reflexes and amount of concentration required in games such as these vertical/horizontal scrolling shooters!

    R-Type 3 was frickin hard! Thank goodness, they gave you unlimited continues. Another classic horizontal shooter is Metal Slug.

    My son inherited all my old classic games, we still play quite a bit of Streetfighter together. Also loved the Mario 1, 2, & 3 for the NES. How about Toejam and Earl, anyone remeber that classic?
