You know, people praise the Playstation over and over, yet I remember playing my N64 SO much more. I had both at the same time, we rented games for both, yet I spent SO much more time on the N64. Explain that.

I blame Mario Party, but hey.

I only had a PC, and I still only have a PC... and my game as a child was Red Alert, I used to sit and watch my sister and brother play that game so after a while I started playing myself... there was only one problem, I didn't know how to read english, so I didn't know what I needed to do.

I remember playing those. Great games. I never could beat Sim Tower, but at one point I was so good at Sim Ant that I could evict the humans and topple the red ants in under 30 minutes.

I feel I should mention Legend of Kage (NES) is the first game I ever played. Not a bad game for a first, but it definitely got better from there.

Well I didn't actually play it but I did consume a lot of time watching my sister play it so I consider it a childhood game. Mostly because all I did was watch my sis play and barely played any games myself till later on :p

o.O
Your GRANDMA was a GAMER?!?!

Back in the day I didn't have any console but an old computer(standard for it's time, 1990) and it had The Lion King, four Commander Keen games, Lemmings and a Jill of the Jungle game. I loved all of them so I guess those are my choices.

Listening to the field music for Rusty Bucket Bay from Banjo-Kazooie brings back memories of pure bliss. I love that game.

Light10s - Blood Lord! Your avatars are becoming more epic. You make me feel like getting on all fours and submitting my loyalty and obedience to you.
Fievel - Numerous campaigns and conquests, countless bodies decaying after the abandonment of victorious battlefields. Such is the life of Blood Lord.
Dusk_Imp - Blood Lord is like a celebrity here. Everything he does is pure awesome. ALL HAIL BLOOD LORD

Command and Conquer (The original. I don't need noTiberian dawn)
Silent Hill 1
Spider-Man on PS1
Also, an obscure PS1 game called Croc: Legend of the Gobbos. Nobody knows anything about it, but it kicked ass.

Most of mine have been said already, In no particular order:
Mario 64, Mario Kart, Mario bros. Basically any Mario game on NES SNES or N64
Crash Bandicoot (can't spell)
Sonic the hedge hog, (back when it was just sonic and tails none of the spares)
Rayman for PS1
Starwars, Spider-Man, and WWF, games for playstation 1.
I'm sure one of the Spider man ones was, Spider-Man 2: Enter Electro
And for PC there was Backyard Soccer. Which was The awesomeness.
