    For me it's a lot but I wanna hear if any of you all had a favorite title when you all grew up as a kid or during your early teen years til now.

    I for one used to play a lot of Punch Out.

    Oh my god dude Streets Of Rage 2 is the shit man I loved fighting all the way up to Shiva and beating the game I did that so many times the only SOR Character I play with in the third is Shiva.

    Yoshi's world was cool especially the fight against baby bowser at the end that was pure classic.

    The best games when I was aroun 7-9 was a game not a lot of people have even heard about, Legacy of the Wizard. Me, my dad, and brother used to always play this together, it was nice.

    Another classic would be Zelda II, we played that a lot as well.

    During my teen years, even up to now, Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy VI, and Chrono Trigger are all time favorites. I remember playing Secret of Mana 2 player with my brother all the time, so it holds some memories.

    If you wanna go nuts, Yar's Revenge was the first classic family game for us.

    I had a major fandom for Zelda When i was younger. Every Zelda game, From NES to 64.
    I wasted (lol) many days infront of Ocarina of time. One of the best games of all time In my opinion1

    Well it revolves around a family of warriors, you can play as the Son who is a knight with a sword, the Father, who is a fighter type with a axe, the Wife who is more a magician, the Daughter who is also more magician if I recall correctly, and the Dog, who is immune to monsters.

    They all had special abilities too like the daughter jumps crazily high, the father is the most powerful, the son is balanced, and the wife can fly, while the dog is immune to regular monsters and terrain damage.
