List some games that, in your opinion, don't age with time. In other words, even if graphics and sound might have aged, gameplay and the overall experience still hold true today as they did yesterday. This is both a thread to shout out to some great games, but also for some awareness to some oldies-but-goodies that some of us may have never tried or were too young to remember. My list: The Legend of Zelda (I play this one from beginning to end at least 4 times a year) Super Mario Brothers 2 & 3, and Super Mario World Rygar (NES) (This is a big one for me. I replay the entire game at least twice a year) Actraiser Phantasy Star 4 Beyond Oasis Castlevania 1&2 Metroid Panzer Dragoon Valis III (Genesis) Exile (Genesis) Baldur's Gate (PC) Sonic 3 Mario Kart (Snes) F-Zero (SNES) These are games that, despite their age, I can still pop into my console and play as if they were almost new (unlike popping Swordquest into my Atari and playing for 5 minutes, when I used to play for hours as a kid). I had listed some PS2 and Xbox games, but I removed them, because some of those games are still similar to what we play now, so it's not uncommon for their gameplay style to still be familiar have replay value.
