Consider yourself and the games you played as a rosy-cheeked youth. What were your favorites? How much of your childhood did you sink in to their pixelated glory?
I remember when I was younger I played through Sonic 2 about thirty times. I'm not exactly sure what age I was at the time, but I do remember that I played through that, Battletoads and Double Dragons (the ultimate team!), Sonic Spinball, Joe Montana Football '94, Vectorman, Earthworm Jim's 1 and 2, and a handful of others.
Not too much later, I played a lot of Metal Gear Solid 1 and 2; I beat Syphon Filter 2 about half a dozen times, the original Playstation Spiderman game at least that many.
