I thought it would be nice to start a thread where people can share their opinions on what they believe are truly classic games.


But please try to think of the rarer games that some people might not of played of as well as the normal instant classics.

Please also state which console its on as some members might not know which console it was released on.

Cool but this may sound very controversial but i believe the best Zelda game was the one for the Game Boy.

Not a rare game, but Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars is certainly a classic.

Also, best Castlevania is Castlevania 3: Dracula's Curse (Grant Denasty FTW)

I believe so. It was on the SNES. Just a fun game. Me and my brother rented it like 10 times before our parents just broke down and bought it for us. Oh when games being $30 was considered expensive.

I only completed it once it was a great game but very time consuming.

FIFA 2000 on the PC. Vest football (soccer) game of it's time hands down!!

The original Tomb Raiders on the Playstation or PC. Can't beat the first 3, although the new ones have brought the series back close to the quality of the originals.

Smackdown 2: Know your Role on the PS1.

Gotta disagree here, FIFA 2000 was an extremely poor game :(

It's only in the last couple of years that FIFA got it's act together anyway. Pro Evoulution Soccer or ISS if you go further back was ALWAYS heads and shoulders above FIFA in term of gameplay. Yes FIFA had all the licences and whatnot, but the gameplay was terrible. Since 2006 though PES has got progressively worse and worse, and FIFA has come into it own.

I know that. But I enjoyed the game for what it is.

It wasn't a promise dude. It delivered well.

I would play those games a lot more. It was nice having that 3rd person action with different camera angles and going back to some of the key places in the survivors perspective.
