    Everyone has some game they get really nostalgic about, and absolutely loved. What's yours? (by the way, refer to the first in a series with a number, eg Half life 1)

    For me, it'd be a cross between rampaging with war galleys in Age of Empires 1 and pistolling in HaloCE (who didn't love that game?) and a bit of HL1.

    For me, it would have to be:

    Cel Damage for the GC, Roller Coaster Tycoon for PC, and Halo for Xbox. I'm actually going to go reinstall RCT now, now that I think about it.

    Banjo-Kazooie and Super Mario 64, although both have lost a lot of their nostalgic "feel" in the last few years as I've had more access to them than I originally did (back in the day, I could only play them at my grandparents' house where my N64 lives, but later I was able to get the DS remake of SM64 and got both 'Kazooie and 'Tooie on Xbox Live Arcade; plus now that I can drive I can go over to my grandparents' house MUCH more frequently than the three-times-a-year I used to get). Still, both have a lot of good memories associated with them, and while the nostalgia may be a little dampened by recent overexposure, both still give me a good all-over blast-from-the-past feeling when I play. :)

    Super Mario World is also a good one for me, but I didn't get into it as much until after I was already well acquainted with the Nintendo 64, so it's not quite as high in my mind as the N64 titles I played as a kid. Very close, though.

    I came within like 9 Pokedex entries of actually 100% completing Silver at one point. Those were the days ... :O
    I was honestly tempted to try SoulSilver ... but I don't know where my DS is, and the battery doesn't work anyway.

    Ooh if anyone was was familiar with Halo Custom Edition (not Combat Evolved) for the PC, those were certainly the 'old days'. Also renting and playing through halo 1 and 2 for the first times with a rented xbox (yes, I did rent one before I owned one) with my dad.
