I wanted to go back and play some old-school games. Been in the mood for it recently. Going to start with the SNES and go from there. What game do you think I should start with? I am debating. Part of me wants to play Super Mario Bros. 3 but I played that so many times that I think I should start with something that I didn’t play as much.
So you want something completely random and difficult?
I always recommend the same game and people hate me for it: Mickey Mania
I never finished Mickey Mania. Hated that game lol
I was always a fan of the Aladdin game. Ironically enough, my sister loved the movie. I didn’t actually watch it until I was older but I really liked the game.
Donkey Kong Country is always a good one. The first or second. Not a fan of the third but you might enjoy playing them in order. 2 is my favorite of the bunch.
I absolutely hated that game!! I actually went back and tried playing it a few years ago and couldn’t even get that far in the game. I wanted to break the controller. I remember it being hard but not THAT hard!
I would suggest Harvest Moon but if you already play Stardew Valley then you likely won’t enjoy it as much. I played it when I was a kid so I actually prefer it but people who played Stardew and went back to that game don’t like it as much.
Harvest Moon was on the SNES?? Why do I not remember it being on that system? Wow, I am having a brain fart or something. I never played the game but I feel like it is something my sister would have loved and we didn’t own it.
It didn’t come out in the US and other regions until 1997 and by then, a lot of focus was already on the N64, likely why you don’t remember it being on the SNES.
How about the OG Mortal Kombat games?
I haven’t played those in years. I kind of want to find some game files and play them again. I have my SNES and the games still, I just don’t know where they are. I have storage space in my basement and unmarked boxes, which was a mistake lol
Did you start on any games yet? I was thinking of doing this myself but I am not sure what to branch out into. I know there are plenty of games I hardly played or never played.
I have read through the suggestions and appreciate them.
I have not started playing anything yet. Since posting this, I had a lot on my plate and not much free time to enjoy anything gaming-related aside from a bit on the weekends. I am going to get some games stocked up to play though. Since I am busy this weekend, I will be starting next weekend. I have a few games already. I think I will start with the first suggestion being Mickey Mania. I only remember playing that game once and never finished it.
I know those feels man. You make plans and then have to put them off for other stuff. I have had to do this so many times for different projects and ideas. Being an adult can suck sometimes lol
Damn I missed out. I wonder if I can find that on ebay somewhere. I still have my snes somewhere, might be worth digging out and playing it.
You can get it on eBay for $20 but it comes from China so that might just be a bootleg version. The actual copies being sold on there in the US are $80+ from what I can see. Some are asking as much as $300 for it.
Yikes! That is a lot. I guess I might be better off just trying to find it as rom. I’d hate to do it but I am not spending that much on a game that old. Most I would be willing to spend is $20.
I’ve been trying to beat the Mickie Mania game since I last posted in this thread, no joke. I haven’t played it every day but I average like an hour a day and man… This game is hard. Did kids really use to play this? lol I am going to give it a few more tries to get past the part I am stuck at and if I can’t do it, I am going to play something else.
Yeah, same. I wouldn’t spend this much either. You might luck out and find it elsewhere. Roms for Nintendo games are getting cracked down on though too so good luck finding one.
Yeah, that is what my friend said. They started cracking down on them heavy like 5 years ago so a lot of them are laced with viruses and crap.
