>>8228068>birth year1992>first gameI honestly have no idea, it's so long ago, and I was so young when I started playing vidya, that it could have been a number of different ones. Super Mario Bros. and Super Mario Bros. 3 are probable, but not definite, could just as well have been Duck Hunt, Tom & Jerry, TMNT, Batman, Megaman, or Fester's Quest. We had maybe 28 games for the NES>favorite gameI'm typically bad at picking favorites, but I'll say Doom with confidence. Doom and Doom 2 are great games at their cores, as well as what people have made with them in all these years, as well as what I can make for it myself.Fun gameplay, and a great heavy metal/horror aesthetic which has just always appealed to me.>favorite series (all retro games in series combined)I guess I'll say Doom, as I really like the expansions too, and spinoffs like Doom 64. I even like Doom 3, in spite of its flaws (some which are considerable). The uh, new Doom games are pretty ok I guess, but they could be a lot better. There's however many other games and series I'm very fond of, many mentioned in this thread as well. Things like Duke Nukem 3D, Diablo, Morrowind, Baldur's Gate, Super Mario 64, and various Castlevania games.>favorite consolePC

>>8228609Yeah actually, at first I was very skeptical because it was first shown off as an april fools joke (even made this meme while I was kind of salty about not getting another beat-em-up), but I was pleasantly surprised at the way they handled the entire system, my only gripe with it is you end the game pretty low level for jrpg standards, so grinding for max level becomes a chore.

Prior to LoZ, my favorite game would have been fairly temporary. I played a lot of games in the 90s and there are many great ones. But I kept coming back to X-Wing and TIE fighter and always enjoyed them right up through the late 90s. I listed Everquest because I was obsessed with it for about 2 years, but no longer consider it a favorite game.

PC is not a console, or I’m pretty sure nearly everyone’s answer would be PC/Emulator. What’s with people obfuscating their birth years. If you think this is an anonymous board, there is no point. If you think this is a honeypot, they already know your age. >birth year1977>first gameDefender>favorite gameShadowdale MUD>favorite series (all retro games in series combined)Ultima>favorite consolePS1
>>8228068I was born in the year 1326. I've played every game in existence and the best one is DUAL ORB II
>>8231990Shame you missed the prequel. Dual Orb I was hot shit in 1325.
>>8230626I would say the NES is more "Iconic" but you could still really feel the limitations of the hardware for most games, outside a small handful of well-polished 90s games like Kirby's Adventure. SNES was everything people liked about the NES, but better. More colors, more sprites, faster scrolling, better sound effects and music. The SNES peak was also the peak of 2D dominance in the game industry.As for Sega Genesis, it looks to me like SNES is has more popularity with late millennials and younger kids for whom the console was always at least a generation behind. For people who lived through that era it's probably more of an even split with only a slight edge to SNES. And I'd guess this is for two reasons1. SNES has more famous series that people are interested to go try (Mario, Metroid, Mega Man, Final Fantasy). Nobody cares about the vast majority of retro sports games and Altered Beast is decidedly niche at this point. 2. Maybe this is just me but I can't find a good emulator for Genesis that doesn't crash and fuck up my display. NES, SNES, PSX, N64, even PS2 all have usable emulators. MAME doesn't give me trouble either. But every Genesis emulator I've tried fucking sucks.

>>8228068>birth year1982>first game Not sure. Intellivision games like Armor Battle, Lock 'N Chase, and Horse Racing. I remember really liking Horse Racing on Intellivision. There was also a baseball game I liked. Donkey Kong made an impression as well. >favorite game>>favorite series (all retro games in series combined)Castlevania. The series has grown on me over time. Rondo of Blood might be the best game I've ever played period. Still haven't played all of the games in the series though. >favorite consoleThe Wii. I really wish I had collected physical games for the Wii. It's hard to justify paying full price for old Wii games online and the used market is just flooded with really crappy games grandma or mom bought kids for Christmas. The Wii is the closest thing to a family entertainment video game console like the Intellivision was. Nothing comes close. Not even the Switch. The Wii-mote is sheer genius. The greatest advance in video game controllers we've ever seen and it's all been tossed away for shitty Joy-cons.

>>8251535Have you ever tried to hand a modern controller to an older relative? How about a woman that doesn't play video games? How about a child that was raised with a tablet in their hands? The Wii-mote is simple to understand. You point, press the giant face button, or pull the trigger. For most family entertainment games that's enough for grandma to get in on the fun with little Timmy and Betty. I've watched non-gamers struggle to even understand a PS4 controller. It's like handing them an electric guitar and asking them to play. The Wii-mote is a happy medium in between complexity and the simplicity of the old NES controller. It's not perfect, still has too many buttons, but what can you do when gamers demand mechanical complexity from their games? It's the best of both worlds.

>>8254076It's a very long-running series and the retro games are consistently good quality despite the hate jarpigs get here. It shouldn't be surprising at all. Even people whose favorite games are in a totally different genre still enjoy retro Final Fantasy. Honestly there are probably even people lying about their favorite series so they don't have to list Final Fantasy given how uncool it is.
