    Legend of Zelda rocks! Love that game, one of the better games on the Nintendo console. Sega had some good titles like Shinobi.

    I remember when the Playstation was first released and my house-mate and I would rent one for the weekend and play non-stop for about 72 hours. Tekken would almost become reality as he was too good for me and I would get frustrated. Also played Wipeout a lot too!! Survived on junk food and coffee for the whole three days - how I worked on Monday I do not know!!

    Yah, I remembered the Legend of Zelda... and the countless hours spent on trying to complete the quest... and then upon completing the first quest, realised that there's a second quest to complete!

    On Sega, it was Shining Force. I must say the finishing move for the main hero on the last boss was pretty cool.And the wolf guy too... and the samurai secret character (Musashi, I believe?). And then, there was Shining Force II. Longer plot but less cool graphics.

    On the Super Famicon/Nintendo, it was my first encounter with the Final Fantasy series. At that time, it was Final Fantasy VI. The amount of time spent trying to collect all the Espers was amazing. The graphics of the game were incredibly advanced for its' time.

    Then onto the Playstation, it was Final Fantasy VII, Final Fantasy VIII, Metal Gear Solid, Tokimeki Memorial II, Front Mission III, Xenogears, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, Parasite Eve and many more...

    Right now on the PS2, I'm on FFX-2 and Front Mission 4...
    (And I must say that PS2 has got a lousy region coding scheme...)

    Did anyone try the first Shining Force game? Shining in the Darkness? It was sort of a first person walk around game...it got me hooked on Shining Force series...

    My favourite was Chrono Trigger, simply loved that game....things that you read in comics like lightning sword where a spell combined with a sword attack...

    Actually, Shining in the Darkness has nothing to do with the Shining Force Series. It's just a marketing gimmick by Sega America to give the game some legacy. The official Shining Force series is just Shining Force 1, 2 and the three versions of Shining Force 3 (Which was pretty cool idea, cos it allows you to play the same game from the perspective of 3 different characters^^).

    It's just like Final Fantasy VI was renamed Final Fantasy III in the US. As well as the Warsong series which is actually the Langrisser series.
