What are your core childhood video games?
No cherry picking to seem cool, if you played nothing but the Sims and OOT post it anyways
>Donkey Kong 64
>Ocarina of Time
>Animal Crossing Population Growing and Animal Crossing Wild World
>Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness
>Sims 2 Pets on the Gamecube
>Tak and the Power of Juju
>Super Smash Bros Melee
In the Sims Pets literally the only thing I would do is breed dogs and then sell the parents and make the siblings breed with each other. I have no idea how genetics work in that game but I'd start with two huskies and end up with green and red pug faced monstrosities.
I’ve never been big into gaming, but I’ll add mine
>Hello kitty ds games (I don’t remember which)
>Animal crossing wild world & new lead
>Pokémon black and white
>the binding of Isaac
>Assortment of random flash dress up games
Mine were these>the sims>gta vice city (not sure why my family thought letting a 5 y/o play this game was a good idea)>tekken 4>>22302>purble place
God take me back to 2008 please
I didn't really get to play any games as an elementary school aged child because of my strict crazy parents. But I played a lot of Pokemon and The Sims for sure in middle school. I got an N64 with Pokemon Stadium, Mario 64 and Tony Hawk. Then I got the PS2 and got to have fun experiences with Final Fantasy 7, Ratchet & Clank and Sly Cooper. By this point I was a teen but that is really when my video game awakening first happened.
>Heroes of Might and Magic2&3
>Black & White
>Age of Empires2
>Might and Magic8
>Tony Hawk's Pro Skater3
Might and magic is the fucking best
Omg I loved nintendogs. Back in 2009 when my 13th birthday was coming up my mom told me if I got all A's on my report card I could get a DS. I spent all night every night studying my ass off so I could get that DS. When I found myself losing motivation I'd doodle pictures of Portia and Daisy from animal crossing cheering me on and it really helped. I got all A's and I got a white DS lite, Animal Crossing WW and Nintendogs. It was the best birthday I ever had.
Why does that look so familiar?? That girl with the red hair, I swear I've seen her before. What system was that on?
Her name is Joni Savage. These were games on PC sold on CD roms
Ahhh thinking about these games warms my heart. Oh to go back to hanging out at my cousin's house playing these games again. Simple times.
>Smash Bros. Brawl>Sims 2>Donkey Kong Country: 3>Age of Empires 3>Nintendogs>Crash Bandicoot>Wii Sports>Catz for Gameboy>Mario Bros Wii and Mario Kart Wii>>22309>When I found myself losing motivation I'd doodle pictures of Portia and Daisy from animal crossing cheering me on

>Ocarina of Time
>Kirby Super Star Ultra
>Taiko no Tatsujin DS
>Various Flash games (mostly from girlsgogames.com)
>Various mobile games on iOS
>Minecraft but mostly the Pocket edition for some reason, despite owning the PC version. I only played the PC one to mass-spawn horses because horses weren't in the Pocket one, and I played on a server but they got mad at me for winning too much so I stopped
This is the first video game I ever beat in my life. It took me about 2 years to do it, but god, I was proud.
What do you mean "core"?
the games that were your favorite and you have the fondest memories around
lol I would mass spawn horses in minecraft too. one time I created a tiny map on the switch and made it a war zone between rabbits, foxes, wolves and polar bears
We had similar taste in games! I also loved Catz. and aww thank you <3
just reminded me I would mass spawn rabbits too lol. I think I liked seeing the variety of colors
Lot's of pokemon. Especially this gem of a pinball game.

I guess the first games I gave a shit about were Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts II.
Soul Calibur II was a great game, that was the first one I ever got 100% on.
In a general order of timeline
>super mario world
– Stop playing with my brother about right here as he is in HS and grown up
– Carried me till I was no longer in childhood id say so the rest dont matter as much
i should clarify i was about 5 years old and my older brother rented it from blockbuster for me because he thought id enjoy it, and for the most part i did. i have positive memories, albeit cloudy.
maybe when im not lazy ill replay this game for nostalgia's sake.
im aware this is straight up just shovelware, but it doesn't change that i was 5 and liked barbie
Ff7, ff9 my friend lent them to me
Sims 1 2 3
Kh 1 and 2
Super Mario bros
Halo when I was a teen
So many emulator games I can't recall them all, it's a long pixelated haze
turn based strat.
I saw my friends play it before I had a computer, just wanting to play it and being unable to kinda made it latch onto me in a strange way and I was playing a lot when I got the chance to.
What kind of game is it? I have always been morbidly curious about the Barbie games and Monster High games.
minecraft, sid meier's pirates, some ice age game, farm frenzy
anyone else play this n64 game called glover? i also played a ton of those her interactive nancy drew games
its an action game with puzzle elements if i recall correctly
The Sims 1
Also Flash games especially Cartoon Network games
toontown (spent so much time on this it's unreal)

>Purple Moon games
>Sim City 2000
>Oregon Trail, Amazon Trail
>Pokemon Red & Yellow
>Prince of Persia
>Super Monkey Ball
>Super Smash Bros Melee
I forgot about Kid Pix. It's mental how much time I spent with that program. I remember I was excited for the winter olympics one year and made an animation/slideshow with it (I could only get it to play at 1 FPS but it got the job done). I think that partly prepared me for the CAD stuff I do now
yes, similar thing here where I think KidPix was the precursor to me getting into photo editing/photoshopping - a little bit of working with layers, stamps, etc. good times.
Does anyone remember a game where you play as a dog that needs to find medication for your sick brother? Did I make this game up in my head?
it's called the dog island I think, I loved playing it as a kid
best Kirby game ever tbh>>22359
Speaking of which, does anyone remember that super old Colgate game for PC?
I love this thread but I can't believe Spyro wasn't named yet!
Honestly, most of PS1 games in general were iconic and just so good.
I was obsessed with this when I was younger lmao. Also Pokemon Heart Gold. My DS was my everything.
Same. KH was so good especially the first one.
This but with beach friends instead. The Wii one was also great.
I loved this because I could be a fashion designer
Super Mario World
Super Mario 64
A Link to The Past
Ocarina of Time
Star Fox 64
Mario Kart 64
Super Smash Bros.
Kirby's Dreamland 3
Kirby's Super Star
i played this game so much when i was small too, it was so fun
Fuck yes, that game was so much fun. Played through all of them, still a bit mad at the false idea of a romance in the first one. 12 yo me really wanted my MC with the guy that liked her
I played a lot of ds games i can’t remember but it was a bunch of mario games princess peach emotions game thingy and the world ends with you are ones that are core memories for me
