Just this past week I grabbed a DOS emulator and broke out Sim City 2000. Good times :P

The original Oregon Trail is what convinced me that our teachers hated us. We used to go to the computer lab once a week to play it, and not one of us ever made it to the end over the entire semester.

The New Age Retro Hippie used a megaphone!
"Sabin, your mother is calling you"
Sabin believed it! Sabin's Guts drop by 50!

Every Mega Man made for NES and SNES
Earthbound
Super Mario RPG
Final Fantasy 6
Super Metroid
Secret of Evermore!
Final Fantasy Tactics

I thought I was the only one who had played, much less loved, Secret of Evermore. And call it strange, but I absolutely adored the soundtrack from start to finish. The music was brilliant when it was music, and all the maps with ambient sounds were amazing, especially for SNES era.

I don't consider N64 games Oldschool yet, but I spent untold hours on Ocarina of Time, Ogre Battle, Starfox, and Mario.

Anyway, let's see what I can toss out there...
If you're able to find the fan translation (or can read Japanese) look up Bahamut Lagoon for SNES. Unique mix of turn based strategy and the era's RPG combat.

Also, the very different but similarly titled Lagoon also on SNES. A zelda inspired adventure game, which while good isn't outstanding. What is outstanding though is the Score. To this day I find myself occasionally humming one of the many catchy tunes from this game.


And now that I look over my list, with the exception of Bahamut Lagoon, the most notable games form my childhood all came with extremely notable musical tracks. It's a wonder I never took more interest in some musical field.

It's not that old (PS1 era), but a personal favorite is Legend of Legaia.

I remember that game! I picked it up at a swap meet for $10 and wasted HOURS on it.

Then I lost interest and went back to better games. It's not horribad, but I can't imagine that it's aged well at all.

It takes a bit more work to get a sega cd emulator working than a basic nes or snes one, but if you can, Lunar, and Lunar II were amazing games, probably the only ones that sucked me in more than final fantasy 2 & 3/6, chronotrigger, and a zelda link to the past. Which, are, imho, the very best of the snes, and the peak of the rpg genre. If you do get said sega cd emulator working, another title i recommend as im a few hours into it now is Vay, published by working designs, the same people that released lunar and lunar II stateside.

Also, if you are playing console games on your pc with an emulator and havent done yourself the favor of picking up a controller yet, do it. I picked up a noname dual shock ps3 controller from walmart(the 360 controllers work as well)for 20 bucks , and it just works in win7 64bit, no drivers or software or anything. Gets recognized as a generic dpad.
