Most nostalgic games

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Since we just had a thread for "overrated games", I thought I'd do one for most nostalgic games. By that, I mean games from the early 2000's and before, not including more recent games.

Resident Evil 2
Final Fantasy VII
Silent Hill 2
Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater
Tomb Raider II
Dino Crisis
Devil May Cry
Ninja Gaiden (Xbox)
Castlevania: Symphony of the Night
Chrono Trigger/Cross
Parasite Eve 1 & 2
Sonic 3/Sonic & Knuckles
Sonic Adventure 1 & 2
Street Fighter II
Soul Calibur II
Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
GoldenEye 007

Ninja Guidan

The NES or Xbox version?

But yeah, glad to see NG getting some love. 

On the subject of NES games, I'd like to see Metal Gear 1 & 2 remade (there's $$$ to be made in seeing a rookie Snake fighting Big Boss in 3D), I'm not getting my hopes up, though.

NES. Only been a Nintendo and PlayStation person. The first one was a classic. There's a lot more games I could add as well like Ghouls and Goblins, another NES game I never/couldn't beat....... so frustrating

The Xbox version was later released on PS3 as Ninja Gaiden: Sigma, though. If you haven't gotten the chance to play it, I highly recommend you do, it 's very good. It was followed by an even better sequel and one of the first games I got for my 360, too bad NG3 sucked.

I'm a Nintendo and PlayStation player as well, but I did get a 360 before I got my PS3 simply because of PS3's steep $600 launch price tag, Ninja Gaiden II and DMC finally coming to Xbox (DMC4). Of course, all the epic first party exclusives (Uncharted, The Last of Us, Twisted Metal PS4, InFamous) eventually convinced me to turn to the Dark Side (no pun intended).

You like quite a few of the same games I do. It's great to see like-minded gamers on here.

I also loved playing HotD and Time Crisis in the arcade, I got Time Crisis 2 with the light gun for my PS2.
