Legend of Zelda Ocarina of Time if I had to pick one game. It still holds up today the 3ds version is wonderful.

Some many great games from Nintendo...

There aren't many space sim games out there anymore, but I used to love Freespace 2. The story was amazing. This was all before all these story driven games that came out recently like the last of us and uncharted. The graphics especially held up very well. Even to this day I'm still surprised how well the game looked and played despite using what we would consider ancient computers.

Agreed Super Mario Bros. Look, even today's hit game Flappy Bird ripped off elements from the Super Mario series!

It's a toss up for me between "Xenogears" & "Street Fighter III: Third Strike"

I wrote BBS door games in Turbo Pascal back in the late 80's and early 90's. Made $3-4k in shareware registrations on one of them. My parents were stunned as I kept getting multiple checks in the mail every week at $10 or $15 a crack. Can't remember exactly what I was charging. But I think I had close to 300 registrations for sure.

The "internet" for one user at a time! The good old days.

Just remembered a couple more:

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons and Hockey for the Intellivision. Amazing games for that era.
