My son and I were tripping on games we liked to play together when he was little, and we decided our favorite was Joe & Mac. What older games were your favorite from like the SNES era or before? And what do you think would make a good candidate for a redo with all the upgraded tech we have today?

SNES:
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past
Super Mario World
Earthbound


PC:
A-Train
SimCity 2000
SimCity 2000 Network Edition
SimAnt
SimFarm


There's a lot more but those are the creme de la creme of the classics.


All the classic Sim games would be great with a modern redo. I'd especially like to see SimCopter, A-Train, and Streets of SimCity.

Hmmmm I don't remember Earthbound at all.

By the way it doesn't have to be SNES. It could be any console. Oh ya I liked Skate & Destroy for Nintendo too and Sonic for Sega.

Definately Street Fighter 2, with better graphics like Smash Brothers, damn that would own.

SimCity 2000 is by far the best in the series.

Castlevania 2 for Sega Genesis.

"Bubble Bobble was the s**t!"

OMG, i cant belive i forgot about Bubble Bobble "THE GREATEST SPECTRUM GAME EVER!!!!"

Its the only game all the family used to play, i got it on my phone last year but it just wasnt the same.

I can remember my mum always used to pwn me though :| she got further than anyone...........

Multiplayer games just arn't fun when you dont have to share a keyboard ;)
