7 Retro video games still worth playing today

Over the last few years, retro gaming has seen a resurgence in popularity. Nostalgia is a funny thing though and sometimes our memories make us think certain titles were more fun and better looking than they actually are today. (Final Fantasy VI, Pokemon Blue, Pokemon Red, Retro, Super Bomberman, ToeJam & Earl, Zombies Ate My Neighbors)

That game is so fun.

Two games I decided to play recently were Shining Force II and Phantasy Star II on the Genesis. There are a lot of underrated RPGs on that system, since everyone focused on the SNES for RPGs.

Those two series are my favorite from sega. to this day i have not beaten shining in the darkness. I got lost in a dungeon a loooong time ago and just said F it...and moved on to shining force and other shining games.

Phantasy star II...the death of Nei (spolier) was a shocker the first time i ever played the game. i tried and tried to keep her alive on subsequent playthroughs and no matter if she survived the fight....she still died.

Another good RPG series on genesis (sega cd) is Lunar. it has been remastered for other platforms but the sega cd is the original that i still have to this day.

Y's on the turbografx was also a well received action/adventure/rpg series. Dragon Slayer is another good turbo AARPG

True. I agree. It's pretty awesome. Have you played the HD remake? It's definitely worth your time. The online multiplayer works flawlessly.

The visuals and music - especially the music - of Final Fantasy VI have held up extremely well. What an amazing game.
CanadianTurtle  +   277d ago
I second that.

Final Fantasy 6 is a must. There is no doubt that it is the best in the series.

Also, another retro game I would strongly recommend is Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. I think the gameplay still holds up.

there is no "best" in the series
it's all about opinions...
( some insano i knew liked XIII the best... that was just awful )

Personally, it doesn't bother me if someone calls any of the games "the best." People have the right to feel that way, and it can start some pretty interesting conversation, too, if everyone remains calm.
pat_11_5  +   277d ago
I think it's by far the best in the series. I'd love to see some sort of a remake.

The resurgance in popularity is in part due to the fact that you can either play a shooter/action game, or you can play a retro game, or you can play no game.
pat_11_5  +   277d ago
There's other genres out there. I think you're being a little overly cynical.
FateoftheGame  +   277d ago
Plus, they might also be popular simply because many of them are still fun to play.

Another great game would be Super Castlevania 4 for the SNES. Demon's Crest is another amazing over looked Gem for the SNES.
Deep-throat  +   277d ago
what an awful list.

TLoZ: A Link to the Past
Sonic games on Sega Genesis (not including Sonic 3D)
Ecco the Dolphin
Comic Zone
Streets of Rage (the whole trilogy)
Victorman

Soulblazer for the SNES was good.
