When I was young, my parents didn't have much money, so while I did play games a lot, they were always somewhat old;for instance, my brother and I played CoD 2 (2005) a lot even when MW2 was the big thing. I also fondly remember playing Super Mario 64 and some stuff on the Wii. Anyways, now it seems like the majority of games (big ones at least) are all just FPSs and battle royales and in general a lot don't seem to have much soul. The Outer Worlds just didn't have that FNV feeling. So I've been playing old games and actually having a lot of fun. Got Morrowind recently, which I remember playing a little around the time Skyrim came out/got big. Also a few months back I played N64 LoZ games on an emulator and I think I'm going to do that again. Any other suggestions for older games I might not really remember (or just comments)? Anything goes, these just seem…better but worse in a wierd way.

I don't really play a lot of retro games, but I had a phase back in 2012 when I was 11 and I had just discovered emulators where I played a lot of GBA games. Some games you should definitely check out are "Mario vs. Donkey Kong", "The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past" and "Super Monkey Ball". I love the GBA, the games for it have a really comfy vibe to them

Seconding Link to The Past, but also Link's Awakening and the Oracle games (seasons + ages). All incredible games in my opinion, and I think they aged a lot better than Ocarina and Majora's Mask.

I like the old Metroid games, and in particular really love Super Metroid. It's incredible for its atmosphere, the sound and graphics are still gorgeous despite the old hardware, and also has good gameplay and exploration. Plus as someone who's fascinated by game design and retrocomputing the way it's designed and programmed is also really neat. My favorite ones after that are Fusion and Zero Mission.

I also used to play a lot of emulated old Fire Emblem games and the F-Zero for the Gamecube, they're both pretty fun.

If you are interested in long-form RPGs at all I would highly recommend Baldur's Gate 1 and 2 (both made by Obsidian, who made FNV). Otherwise anything on the GOG store is awesome, much more curated and DRM free to boot.

Neverwinter Nights and Icewind Dale as well.

I play games in my past that I never finished or just to remember what it was like.

SNES:
Seconding Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Super Mario World is a game that keeps me coming back every few years too.

PC:
Doom (the original) is great.
Myth (and it's sequels) were a slightly unique RTS game, with no base building.

Other:
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2 is great. The re-release is easier due to combining 1 and 2 into one game, but captures the spirit.
Glider Pro (the mac os game) has a cell phone version and is one of my childhood favorites.
