chrono cross was alright... didn't have a very good story to it compared to the multi-layered masterpiece that was the original.

man when I played half life I got ascared at the alien critters

back in the day i was the same way about Doom/Heretic. i could not play those games alone/in the dark/at night or i would be so inclined to pee myself due to the fear they incited in me.

'Nuff said.

i downloaded the cellphone version... truly and utterly made me regret spending the 8 dollars it cost, for very obvious reasons.

i used to play this every ferry ride from Bridgeport to Port Fefferson when the family would go to Long Island. i used to run that shit across the LI Sound like a fucking train.

Uniracers for Super Nintendo.

uniracerssnescoverou2.jpg

I will admit I haven't played it for years, but it was ultra fun. Race riderless unicycles on 2 dimensional race courses and do tricks to go faster.

Never met anyone else who has played this game but it rules/ruled. Unfortunately I must admit its reign may have ended.

and of course all the other classic games people have been mentioning were great too.

Is Monkey Island old enough to be classic yet?

Excuse me, I think everyone forgot this:

NES_Tetris_Box_Front.jpg

I spent hours during family road trips hunched over the tiny screen on the original Game Boy. Was fat as a brick, barely qualified as "portable", and my most prized possession until they invented Game Boy Color.
