    Best Ottawa Senator for that move? Jeff Lazaro... Yeah, you read that right!

    Haha. Nothing beats Jeremy Roenick in NHL 94. That guy was awesome. Remember that awesome line from Swingers?

    NBA Jam was SICK. Do you guys remember the game "Arch Rivals" on the original NES? Another sweet game.

    NFL Blitz for 64 was a lot of fun too, because there wasn't the Dung and complexity of calls like in Madden, and you can just smoke people.

    NHL Hitz is a ton of fun as well. I schooled Mel many times before she made me put it away. Smile

    EDIT: By 'it away', obviously I was referring to my Wang.

    I will take your word on that, I remember the first NHL series game I played was on Sega Genesis, NHL 93 and I remember that move, that is the big difference with the latest games of the NHL series, no special moves that are a guaranteed goal.

    Metal gear solid, Shenmue and final fantasy mostly. Story driven games, in general.

    Best game of all time for my money...

    Cyberball. 7 robots per side QB slightly different than the rest... AWESOME!!! Damn I wish I still had that game. A 2009 version would sell millions of copies...

    hahaha! Duck hunt!! AWESOME!!

    My dad LOVED playing "Operation Wolf" with me at the arcade, and then one day after school, he took me to Radio Shack and be bought it on the NES... we used to take turns with the light gun... ahh, good times.

    EDIT: OH my god, remember the GAME GENIE?!?! It took you like an hour to punch one all these lines of cheat codes and then sometimes they never ACTUALLY worked?!

    oh lord the game genie, the alphanumeric, upper and lower case cheat codes that, you are right, never seemed to work (works much better on the emulators and the codes aren't as long)

    I remember playing contra, man, I was addicted to that game, then Super C came out, blew me away lol.

    For anyone who wants to nerd it up. Here is a link where you can download console emulators and games to play on your PC. i.e. retro stuff like cyberball (which kicks ace...)
