What games from before the turn of the millennium do you think hold up the best today, not just visually, but in terms of gameplay, and what about them has made them stand the test of time?

Super Metroid

Super Mario 64

Tetris avoid getting banned for inactivity, I may have to resort to comments that are of a lower overall quality and or beneath my moral standards.

SNES library in general holds up fantastically well. I replay many of them almost yearly, incluiding DKC trilogy, Super Metroid, SMW, SMW2YI, Chrono Trigger, FFVI, among others.

Mostly 16 bit games aged quite well.

Donkey Kong Country! ^^

Punch-Out!! (NES) 

Super Mario 64 and Super Mario Bros 3

I'd go with early arcade games, Pac-Man, Galaga, Donkey Kong...
Clean graphics, simple and engaging gameplay that is as fun nowadays as it was back then.
