I have mental health issues and am getting over them. They caused me to write some funny, almost trollish things that I can no longer stand by at another community I used to go to. I was a clown. Despite of this, I did salvage a post I made that I liked and am posting it here. I present, my top 20 games you must play:

20. Star Fox 64 (N64) - This is one game you can never play enough, despite how much you play it. It has villains which you love to hate, and great missions. It has it all.

19. Metroid: Zero Mission (GBA) - Short, but a great game. A decent level of depth is achieved in the 3 hours it takes to beat this. Also features the original Metroid (NES) when you're done. Add to that multiple ending screens, and you have 19.

18. Super Mario RPG (SNES) - The best Mario RPG in my opinion. This game oozes quality, and has great graphics and interesting scenarios.

17. Sonic Adventure & Sonic Adventure 2 (Dreamcast) - Two great Sonic games that can only be linked together. Say what you want about them, but these two are some of the best in 3D Sonics. Chao are also fun, when you get tired of the game.

16. Megaman X (SNES) - A must-play game. Easy to learn but hard to master.

15. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time (N64) - A great Zelda game. Not the best. This game isn't overrated, it deserves its praise, but barely so. Still a fine game featuring many dungeons and an engrossing adventure.

14. Final Fantasy VI (SNES) - A memorable game with great pixel art and memorable characters. The opera scene goes down as one of the greatest game scenes of all-time.

13. The Last Story (Wii) - Once you finished the campaign, you had a whole other game to play - the online.

12. Toejam & Earl (Sega Genesis) - A great game that is wacky fun with a friend. You play as one of two aliens and must advance through a dangerous world while using powerups.

11. Sonic the Hedgehog (Sega Genesis) - It's hard to pick a choice between Sonic and Mario. I almost prefer Sonic as a whole. It's a shame some of his later titles were botched.

10. Halo: Combat Evolved (XBox) - A great game for its time with mechanics that are still good. The campaign and multiplayer were fun for their time, especially fighting Hunters and Capture the Flag, respectively. Unfortunately, unlike most Nintendo and old Square games, it hasn't aged well.

9. Disgaea 3: Absence of Detention (PS Vita) - I'm not sure what's funnier... this game's humor, or its attempts at it. With about 60 hours or more of gameplay total, abundant humor, and a good battle system, this game is incredible.

8. Metroid Prime 2: Echoes (GameCube) - The music was epic, and so was the game. The transfer between Light and Dark world made the game. The game did a great job of making you feel alone.

7. Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus (PS1) - An unexpected entry, Abe's Exoddus is a fun and weird game that, unlike the one before it, allowed you to save anywhere.

6. The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask (N64) - An innovative game. Playing it gives me thrills and chills. The town is well-done. And if you like difficulty, some of the moments in this game make it the game for you.

5. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past (SNES) - A Link to the Past features a funny and robust Dark World, cool music, and cool dungeons.

4. Super Mario World (SNES) - A simple game, but a good one with nice features - like the Halloween edition.

3. Donkey Kong Country (SNES) - This game featured splendid graphics and fine gameplay. You couldn't help but laugh at some of the character designs. This is the best Donkey Kong.

2. Super Metroid (SNES) - THE best Metroid game. This game is an absolute classic. Barely beaten by number 1.

1. Golden Sun & Golden Sun: The Lost Age (GBA) - Golden Sun delivered in almost every way. It's a cool game now, but it was an even more extraordinary game then. Breathtaking and with great characterization, you can't afford to miss it. Its sequel Golden Sun: The Lost Age, I am also listing - it's an incredible game, one almost as good as the first before it.
This list is rife with sheer gems, especially with respect to the SNES and N64! Kudos sir!
I have not played most of these games tbh. I really wanna play a ton of them but i only played a few of these. I played Starfox 64. Played Ocarina of time. Played Sonic 1.
Gotten halfway through MM 2 times. I always get bummed out with the time limit when i am at the Snow dungeon. Played a link to the past and got bored to be honest.
Played mario world. played DK country. Which leaves a ton of these games i have not played. Gonna play golden sun next :p
