Well, after much thought (and not a few beers :lol: ), I have came up with my top 5 fav's of all time:

(1) Super Mario Bros. NES/Arcade. Why: This was the first game I really got into deep, and played extremely insane amounts of time. I of course played games before this such as Donkey Kong, Pong, Frogger, Pac-Man, etc., but this is the game that started it all for me as far as I'm concerned. I probably put enough quarters into the arcade to buy this game 100 times over...

(2) Mortal Kombat II SNES/Arcade. Why: I got into fighting games with SFII and MKI, but this game was just so much better than the predecessors, I couldn't help but play it. Before I finally got this cartridge, I put almost as many quarters in as I did for Mario, and when I did get it, my friends and I used to have all-night tournaments for weeks on end...and I still play it. It also was the first to introduce so many different finishing moves, such as fatalities, babalities, friendships, and stage specific kills. Truly awesome game.

(3) NBA Jam: TE SNES/Arcade. Why: I didn't spend nearly as much on the arcade version of this as I did with other titles, because I got this one right when it came out...My brothers and I played what must have been about 40 games of this per day, for months, and I don't know if any title has taken so much of my time as this one, not even RTK.

(4) Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past SNES. Why: This game took a great game and made it infinitely better, and I loved everything about this game. It had a great story, awesome music, and an evil antagonist. As the game wore on, I remember getting a sense of urgency, as if I didn't hurry up something bad was going to happen, and this is the first game to do that for me.

(5) Final Fantasy III SNES. Why: As far as I'm concerned, this is the greatest title in RPG's ever. It's not my #1 because I don't really love RPG's as much as other genre's, such as sports and action. However, this game, with it's great story, awesome music, and the most evil bad-guy of all time, ranks very high for me, and I wish Square would re-make this with all new PS2 graphics, or at least have one of their newer versions have the depth of this amazing game.

Btw, I haven't ranked them in order, they sit head and shoulders above the rest together.

The Dreamcast version, that one was simply breathtaking

I just picked up Suikoden 2. It is an amazing game to say the least.
I too love the Harvest Moon series. It's really innovative.
