Favorite Old School Games?

Just wondering if anyone likes the oldies that came out in the 80s? Games like Pac Man, Donkey Kong, Centipede or Millipede. What about Sonic? The graphics definitely aren't as good as they are now, but I still like to play some of those games. I was even talking to someone the other day about how I used to spend a lot of time playing Lemmings.

I didn't play many classic arcade games like that. My first system was the original Nintendo when I was 3 years old, so that system and onward is what I dealt with.

Plenty of great games from that time frame. Obvious ones like Mario series and Sonic, but I also loved Death Of Superman on the Sega Genesis, NBA Jam for Sega Genesis. Loved the old Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles games, Battletoads + Double Dragons was fun though I could never beat it.

I do like the classic games. Especially Pac Man and Mrs. Pac Man. Tetras is also a great puzzle game that is mindless. Miner 2049er is very challenging. If you can find that one now, I suggest you give it a try. It might be fun for you.

Oh, I had forgotten all about Sonic the Hedgehog. Whatever happened to Sega Gensis? Did the console go under? I was too young to remember much about Atari and never got into arcade games beyond air hockey.

@DandyMandy, speaking of Atari, I learned something funny recently. The guy who developed Atari, Nolan Bushnell, was also the owner of the Chucky Cheese pizza restaurants. I thought it was kind of weird until I thought about pizza and video games. Pretty smart.

That is a good piece of trivia @airgold. I remember the Atari. In today's video world it's considered ancient I'm sure. That is where I was introduced to Pac Man. Those were some good times.

Sonic is such a good game. I downloaded it on my boyfriend's PS4 and had such a great time playing it. My dad also got his hands on the new Atari Flashback console (it was new then at least) and we had a lot of fun playing all kinds of classic games. Asteroids, Space Invaders, and Pong were the games we played the most.

Have you seen the movie Pixels? It's got all of these games and more in it.
