I started playing games when I was 2 because my older cousin would bring over his NES when he came over to babysit my sister and I. When I turned 5 he gave me his NES, Power Pad, R.O.B, and Zapper, along with the 3 game cartridge of Super Mario Bros., Duck Hunt, and World Class Track Meet, Double Dragon, the Gyromite and Stack Up games for ol' R.O.B, Burai Fighter (Which is AWESOME), and Little Nemo (Also Awesome), all which I have to this day (and am thankful for).
I'm usually an RPG person, but I love games in all genres. My top 5 (give or take a few) in no particular order are: River City Ransom, Super Mario RPG, Little Nemo, Kirby's Adventure, Double Dragon 1 and 2 (fuck 3), Deja Vu, Chrono Trigger, Super Mario World, Super Mario Galaxy, Lost Odyssey, Vagrant Story (LOVE), Elder Scrolls series, Kirby's Adventure, Final Fantasy series (2,3,7,8 and 12 more so) Metal Gear Solid series, Phantasy Star 2 and 4, Suikoden 3 and 5, Blue Dragon, Okami, Front Mission 3 and 4, Grandia series, Xenosaga, Xenogears, Armored Core Series, Secret of Mana, Indigo Prophecy, Battletoads, Alien Hominid, Valkyria Chronicles, Beyond Good and Evil, Shadow Warrior, Blaster Master, Monopoly for the SNES (Weird, I know...but it's the only GOOD version I've ever played), Dragon Quest VIII, Dragon Warrior 1 and 3, Fallout series, Far Cry 1, Portal, A Boy and His Blob, Grandia 2, Rogue Galaxy, Vagrant Story, Earthbound, Valkyrie Profile series, Disgaea 1 and 2 (not so much 3), Venom/Spider-Man: Separation Anxiety (Green Jelly!), Illusion of Gaia, Legend of Zelda: 1, OoT and Link to the Past. Lunar 1 and 2 (LOVE), Persona series, and pretty much every Tales game...and probably about 100 others I'm forgetting at this moment. Really though I love (almost) all games.
