Forums - Gaming Discussion - Best Game From The Year You Were Born?

Born in 1992, I guess Mario Kart?



Around the Network

A lot of good games were released in the year I was born, so I'll pick my personal favourite - Super Metroid

Is it too late to wish you a happy 42nd birthday?

Not at all, my birthday was in January but I'll take it.

Happy birthday!! ^^



Looking at the game released that year, the best game was probably Bomberman. Not entirely sure of all the games released that year.

Mario Bros was released that year but it was the first Mario game with just the single screen, so not the best game. Super Mario didn't come out until 1985.



Hmm, pie.

Born in 1976, so there wasn't much more than arcade games, do they count? Well, it seems there was a game called Colossal Cave Adventure for the PDP-10 computer(?). Guess I'll go with that. It's a text-based adventure game. Yay.

I dunno, Backgammon maybe? This thread reminds me of just how old I am.

I was born in 1989. Looking at the list of games I see Revenge of Shinobi, Phantasy Star 2, and Golden Axe, all 3 good games, hard to pick between those 3. I think I'll go with Revenge of Shinobi though.

You're forgetting an excellent game and my pick for game of my birthyear: Super Mario Land.
I loved this game as a kid, played the heck out of it, and still have a virtual console copy downloaded onto my 3DS.

I was a Sega Kid growing up, never much cared for Mario. Super Mario Land is the Gameboy Mario isn't it? I saw that on the 1989 list when I was looking. 



Tough choice between Super Mario 64 and Super Mario RPG.

Yes, it's the Gameboy one. I was a Nintendo kid, so Mario was a big chunk of what I played. Now you've got me curious about those Sega game given that Golden Axe was pretty good and you've ranked Revenge of Shinobi above it.
