>>947>Any other suggestions for older games I might not really remember
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.
i remember i used to play sims 1 alot because i learned how to mod the game
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.
Seconding Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Super Mario World is a game that keeps me coming back every few years too.
Doom (the original) is great.
Myth (and it's sequels) were a slightly unique RTS game, with no base building.
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.
Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines
