All those others are great, too; I just had to give you props for the Solomon's Key because I think that is a relatively obscure title.
Didn't know how to continue when I beat the game originally! Was the hardest damn thing ever! God, the satisfaction of beating that game and I've only been able to do it one time! Of course now all you have to do is visit gamefaqs for the cheat. Just a great thinking type of game.

I've never actually beaten it, if you can believe that. It just takes so long and you have to do it all in one sitting.

Bubble Bobble, on the other hand, is just barely short enough that you can beat the whole thing in one sitting. Any longer than that and it's just too long.

I used the music during the match against Tyson to guide me when he would swing. Usually I can beat him without getting punched. It's all about timing.

I still have the SNES also and it still works. Got rid of the Super Scope I had with it.

I gotta say, being able to control time makes old games a lot better and takes the annoyance out of them. That was my favorite thing about Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection; hoping similar compilations offer it as well.

Nintendo needs to come out with a disc-based NES/Super NES collection.
PSN: SuprSaiynMusashi

DVD/BD Collection: 781 discs on 349 products: 261 movies + 2,476 Episodes.
Game Collection: 618

Oh, yeah. I love those. I have the emulators for the Arcade.

Never owned a Nintendo. I had an old school, big a** Gameboy with a bunch of games. I still have the old Gameboy and most of the games.

I've got like:

Tetris
Primal Rage
Mortal Kombat
Godzilla
Godzilla: The Series
Pokemon - Whichever games there was

And some more, just don't remember what they were.

The old GameBoy was pretty legendary. Talk about OG! I don't have one of those anymore, but I do have a DS (the original grey one) and on it I've got a GameBoy emulator so I can play all the old games.

I've been playing a lot of NES emulator lately. Good times!

I don't have my NES/SNES anymore due to space constraints However, the Wii's virtual console helps to make up for that!! I love the good ole days of video gaming! My fav NES games:

Mega Man 2
Mega Man 3
Super Dodge Ball
Legend of Zelda
Super Mario Bros 3
Tetris
Dragon Warrior 3
River City Ransom
Castlevania
Guerilla War (great co-op game!)

However, the SNES holds the distinction of being my favorite game console ever:

Final Fantasy IV (II)
Final Fantasy VI (III)
Chrono Trigger
Ogre Battle
Super Metroid
ActRaiser
Super Mario Kart
Super Castlevania IV
Super Street Fighter II
ClayFighter
EVO
Soul Blazer
Legend of Zelda: Link to the Past

Also still have my original Game Boy

I bet they all would still be working like the day I bought them (or my parents bought some of them ). Not true this gen. The only console to not crap out on me yet this gen is my trusty little Wii.

The Wii doesn't break ... it just breaks your HDTV instead.
