It's hard to name just one. I'm 30 years old now  

 

NES - Hard to say how old I was.  Before kindergarten for sure.  I got lucky with an older brother.

Mario Bros 2

Legend of Zelda

 

SNES - 

Super Mario World

Mortal Kombat

Legend of Zelda: LttP

 

N64 - 

Goldeneye

Legend of Zelda: OoT

 

PC -

Starcraft

 

All of those games have heavily shaped my interests in gaming today. There are tons more but those are the ones that stand out as really solidifying me as a "gamer".

Nice list man, I know how it feels to be hitting 30. I think I put tons of hours into all those games except Mortal Kombat, I think I was more of a Tekken player lol

Yeah I don't think I played Tekken for the first time almost until the PS2 came out.  Don't really know why, none of my friends were playing it either is probably a big reason. 

Speaking of PS games, I could probably add Resident Evil to the list. That was bar-none the scariest experience of my childhood. I loved it.

Legend of Zelda and Mario on the NES

Sonic on the Sega Megadrive (I believe the Megadrive was called differently in the US, not sure)

Final Fantasy and Resident Evil series on the various PS systems

pc - Baldur's Gate, Icewind Dale, Planescape Torment, World of Warcraft (pre cataclysm, after that it was done for me, still looking to get that fix somewhere)

I'm sure I'm forgetting a few.

Edit: Oh how could I forget, America's Army up until 2.8. Now that was a great shooter, I don't want to know how many hours I played it because I'll start to cry

Oh so many memories. 

The First Fallout is still a game I keep picking up and play. Though I have done that a metric fuckton of times by now. But I think it started for me with games like Command & conquer, Interstate 76' and Duke Nukem..

Planescape Torment was pretty good I still haven't finished it only ended up getting around halfway through. Command and Conquer so many hours spent in red alert... Speaking of good old RTS's I see mention of Starcraft but anyone beat Warcraft 2? I spent about as many hours deforesting  worlds as I did building more Pylons.

What got me really hooked into PC Gaming was Call of Duty 4 back in 2012 or 2013. Mind you, game was made back in 2007. Loved the Pokemon games on the Game Boy Advanced and well as The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. Favorite PS2 game has to be Gran Turismo 2. Wasn't the biggest fan of the Nintendo Wii.

I really need to emulate the old GBA games however. I enjoyed those so much.

I grew up as an NES kid. We never had a SNES but we eventually got a PlayStation and an Xbox. I also had a Sega Game Gear and a Gameboy Color. I think most of my time was spent in Super Mario Bros. But when we started upgrading systems I did really like Legend of Dragoon, Crash Bandicoot, and Spyro. I use to go over to my friends house to play Harvest Moon on her SNES. Pokemon Yellow on my Gameboy and I was wildly addicted to this Power Rangers game on my Game gear, lol.

I think I spent most of my childhood playing the red, blue and yellow version of pokemon, I remember it would be my bed time so I would go into the bathroom and sneak my gameboy in there and play haha... had to catch em all. Good times.

Oh Harvest Moon was a great game, I remember  reading about it in a very old Nintendo Power Magazine I had forgotten about and wanting to play it. I couldn't seem to find it anywhere spent hours calling local places to see if they had it. I finally got a number to some game distributer somewhere far away and spent 75 bucks on buying it and having it shipped to me. Mostly my mom's money but hey I had 40 bucks saved up! Good times, and who didn't love Pokemon as a kid haha, Only wish I knew that Mew trick back in the day I'm sure I could have paid for my rare game habits selling mews on the playground.

Haha don't feel bad I did the same thing to one of my friends when he showed me Pokemon for the first time. I didn't know changing boxes saved the game.. Poor guy almost had them all too.

I can't tell you how many hours I spent into Fire Red. (Which was the remake of it for the GBA) I would spend 4+ hours into that game in a sitting sometimes. I am sad to report I never catched them all. Was not even close.

It's a sad day for America right now.

Don't worry bro as long as you caught at least some of them, the PokeGodz would be happy.

You remember the first person shooter C&C? Where you could pick different classes and had to protect your harvester and base from the other team. There was like a free demo I remember playing the crap out of that with my friend.
