    Oldest sytems I have are my SNES and Genesis and I still play games on both of them, one of which is F-Zero which is of course a launch title for the SNES (IIRC) so probably that. Though if games on the VC count I do have SMB3, and I also have SMB for the GBA and LoZ.

    I still play Burgertime and Ms. Pac-Man on MAME once in a while.

    I need to get a C64 emulator installed so I can play Impossible Mission, Sabre Wulf, Green Beret and Wizball again.

    oldest arcade:

    -- Golden Axe: Revenge of Death Adder
    -- Magic Sword
    -- King of Dragons
    -- Black Tiger
    -- Samurai Shodown 2 (although it's hard as nails)

    oldest PC:

    -- Half-life (with Opposing Force and Blue Shift add-ons, still as good as the first time)
    -- Baldur's Gate
    -- Mechwarrior II: Mercenaries (kicks mucho ass. the best Mechwarrior game in my book)
    -- Warcraft II (especially the Battlenet Edition, because of the easier interface)
    -- Crusader: No Regret (as good as the first time)

    I still really enjoy the original Super Mario Bros. 1, 2, and 3. Also Super Mario World. Contra is still awesome as well. Mega Man 2 and 3. Those are games I just will always love.

    I <3 many Master System games and have a special place in my balls for certain old atari games. There's one where you shoot toothpaste at attacking burgers and sodas and it's great.

    Starcon 2. Downloaded it a few months ago and played it all the way through again, and it was still a blast.

    I am holding down the shift button and hammering the arrow keys like you wouldn't believe.

    And yes, Starcon 2 is the bomb. I have been trying to get Dosbox running it but it is not working and I am sad.

    Don't have my original NES or SNES anymore, but I do have Final Fantasy Origins for PS1. So I'm able to still play the original Final Fantasy(FF2's a stinker though). Also have the Mega Man Collection for PS2. Got one of the Midway Arcade collections too that has Mortal Kombat 2 and 3 on it, as well as still having the collector's edition of MKD with Mortal Kombat 1 on the bonus disc.

    Wish I knew what the hell happened to my SNES and games. I had Super Mario World and Super Mario All Stars on that :(

    As in Star Control 2?

    Google for Ur-Quan masters, the 3DO version got opensourced and folks ported it to modern OS platforms.

    Damnit! I totally forgot MechWarrior 2. I loved that game so much too. However, I played the game using cheat codes most of the time but now I wanted to finish it without. Clan Jade Falcon will previal and conquer Terra!

    I still like to play Pac-man from time to time. Galaga will always be my all time fav that I play when ever I get a chance. That is the one game that I someday hope to own an old arcade cabinet for.
