As many have, I would recommend the EarthBound (Mother) games. They're now on NSO.
I would recommend playing Beginnings first, even if you have to speed it up or sometimes use states. I still enjoyed it, but I played it last of the trilogy.

I found an amazing Michael Jackson game.

Michael Jackson Moonwalker arcade version , the 3 player is amazing and is way different than Sega Genesis version

Best played in 2 player mode

Get Primal Rage Arcade version , don't get SNES/Genesis they are bad/suck get the Arcade cabinet version instead .

I extremely recommend watching the whole video this player is amazing especially the first stage and he unlocked critical lightning , arcade version port needs to happen even though I said no port begging but I really want this the frames are super fast while SNES is super slow bad port. Watch the video below

I had a Saturn with an Action Replay +. I still have Panzer Dragoon Saga and Shining Force III.



Here's a retro recommendation. It was made in 1979.

I could see where some parts would lose all challenge if you know the tricks. I like the original Metroid for the no handholding aspect too. I like when I get to figure stuff out. 

That is why the original Metroid is my favorite Metroid game. 

That is also why, in this day and age, if I ever designed a video game it would flop horribly. I can recognize that my preferences are niche.  

Your tastes are not actually as niche as you think.  Original Metroid was the best selling 2D Metroid for decades until the recent release of Metroid Dread.  Also, Metroid Dread just barely outsold it will a much higher user base.

Your tastes aren't niche, but the internet perception of Metroid is screwed up.
