Whether it be Virtual Boy or the regular Game Boy; Sega Genesis or SNES; what's your favs in the otherwise morbid decade? Mine would have to be "Mortal Kombat 3" followed by the highly addictive "Theme Park".

Yes, I whole heartily agree with Half Life coming in at a close third Mr. Risitar.

For the following systems

PC: Half Life
Snes: Super Mario World (hours upon hours of playing with my friends on this)
Sega: Sonic 2 (hardest sonic there is)
Nintendo 64: Goldeneye
Gameboy: Pokemon (who didnt like that game??) and Wario Land
yay for 90's video games!!

I could say half-life but I think TFC deserves a mention (Team fortress classic) took many many hours away from my life...no better rush than playing TFC in a clan match, no other online fps has even come close to the fun I had with this game.Im sure there are others who remeber this game the way I do, the community was huge at the time till CS came and stole the limelight.

Hands down my favourite game of the 90's, followed by FF7 ( has it been 10 years already?!).

Oh, well i guess i should have specified...but when i meant half life, i meant the game, Counter Strike, TFC, Day Of Defeat, all the other mods (another fav mod of mine was/is Natural Selection)

yeah, just an all around great game and such...

Mine is Duke Nukem atomic edition for PC, Diablo (hellfire) , Doom (+ II), Heretic, Lionking, Tomb Raider, Moto Racer, and some others like Prince of Persia, Prehistorik 2...

For Sega Master System: Hang On, Alex Kidd, Sonic the Hedgehog, Wonder Boy, and some others I don't remember. I liked the Sega Game Gear's TV Tuner card, too.

I disliked Nintendo because I didn't have one. For 286 PC I liked Tetris in DOS Navigator, and the WWin 95 Games for 486. Pinball (Microsoft Plus 95) Rulez. :-)

Nope.

best ever game for me was Secret of Mana on the SNES. Closely followed by mario and the zelda franchise.

They ate whole days of my life, and it taught me alot about perserverance and determination.

On the PC, well it had to be half life and its multiplayer variations..... man i now can speak l337 to shame n00b3r2 with perfect h3d sh0tz....rofl

I miss the days of crazy boxs and 200+ page "instruction" manuals. I still got my Darklands manual and it weighs in at a heft 120 pages and not those chinsy dvd manuals, its a fricken book. I also think it will be easier to name developers and not names as that was the time when I was most heavily into gaming.

PC: Sierra, Bioware, Blackisle Studios, Infograms

NES/SNES: Squaresoft(it's the company that got me into gaming in the first place with it's ironically named Final Fantasy as they originally thought that it was gonna be the last game they ever made.
, Namco, etc etc.

Lotta great games in the 90s, the super nintendo and genesis were great systems with some great games.. you would have to be a communist not to love sonic or mario

but i see that only one poster here (sorry if i missed any others) remembered that the playstation came out in the 90s.. and one of my all time favorites was the reason i got the playstation to begin with, final fantasy 7.. without a doubt.. the best of the franchise (with the american FF2 & 3 comming in as insanely close second and third)

But how about some of the unsong heros of the 90s... the lil known and poorly promoted Sega CD had acouple really fun games, one of the most noteable being "Sewer Shark", if you can ever get a chance to play this game i recommend it.. i promise you this game helped inspire the full move to the CD based games of the playstation and Xbox.

Unfortunatly, the game also inspired companies to create games with lack luster gameplay but include "brand new shiney feature" that would sell the game anway.
