As the title suggests, what games gives you a strong sense of nostalgia?

I got myself some:

GunZ The Duel: Flapping a sword about in a gothic/matrix feel game. Lots of times where my friends got me into online gaming, as well as doing bossing runs and just having a grand old time shooting at things.

MapleStory: Built a lot of memories here, only old screenshots do it for me though, a lot of the game has been 'updated' for the worse in my opinion. A lot of the nostalgia comes from meeting people a discovering this huge world.

Paper Mario: TTYD: I still regard this as the best game ever. IT had the perfect blend of RPG, action, humour. Reminds me a lot about the first time as a kid playing a story-driven game.

Battle City: A Tank-driving game for the NES. I enjoy the simple action from the game. It also reminded me of simpler times when my mom and I would sit around and just play the NES daily together.

So what are your picks? Let me know, I'm curious.

Soul Blazer. It was a game I rented multiple times and fell in love with. To this day I can pick up and play it and not get bored.

Secret of Mana, Secret of Evermore, Illusion of Gaia, Terranigma and Lufia.

Since I finished Terranigma years ago, I still get that "That was deep" feeling... Eek!

Well now that I'm more awake (Not really) I got a few more that do.

Fester's Quest- sadly one of three NES games I had as a child. I played the hell out of this. It's not good, but I beat it more times than I can tell.

Dragon Warrior- another game I had from the beginning of my NES days. I still love this game as simple and clunky as it is. So many memories of adventure and exploring.

Friday the 13th: Another oddball NES game. Being a horror movie guy, I got this of course, and as many people complain it's bad, it's due to the ridiculous difficulty if you don't know what you're doing. I beat this game once in the twenty years I've owned it- just once- about two years ago on a fluke.

Super Mario Bros. 3- I'll never forget the first time I beat it. I sadly had to "cheat" kind of- I got the cloud item that lets you skip over levels, and I got as far into the last world as I knew I could, and skipped all the way to Bowser's Castle- and beat it my first try. That was a good day.

Legend of Zelda- another great one. In fact, LttP, OoT are among my favorite games ever.

Final Fantasy 8- I've played a few of them (7, 9, Mystic Quest ::shudder:Smile
but this one was my favorite. It's sort of steam punk which is something I'm not entirely a fan of, but it works for this sort of in the past with future technology motif. Everyone says parts are convoluted and the magic junction system sucks... but I don't really see much of a difference between that and the materia system.

I'll wrap this up before I continue rambling, but a few other notable mentions include Batman: The Video Game, Guardian Legend (all time favorite game) A Nightmare On Elm Street, Fallout 3.... the list never ends.

Funny you should mention Mystic Quest. Everybody hates this game. I actually found it quite enjoyable at the time. Despite being a terribly easy and dumbed down RPG, I liked it because of the graphics. It's way better looking than FF4 - 6. Since we see the front-side of enemies, they are much more detailed. That, and the monsters having different images depending on how much health they had lost, was a great feature that I'm surprised was not carried over to subsequent games. I know I'm a minority in this.

Terranigma, Secret of Mana 2 and Chrono Cross. Seeing old screenshots of WoW Vanilla could already be counted as a nostalgic feeling too Very Happy
