Retro Games

After hacking my original Xbox and flashing it TSOP chip I can now run many emulators on it including NES, SNES, MegaDrive and more and play the games I used to play when I was younger. 

What is the first game you remember/played?

For me its Super Mario all stars (Including Super Mario World) on the Super Nintendo.

Re: Retro Games

The first console game I played was Sonic the Hedgehog on the Master System. Sega had 'baked' that game into the system OS so it would load that if you didn't put a cart in. Mind you, it was my cousin's Master system. My own first console was Japanese imported Mega Drive with the Japanese version of Sonic the hedgehog. Sure Sonic games were fun-ish but the most memorable game for me was Eternal Champions. I also liked Streets of Rage, Aleisha's Dragon, Busby the cat etc.

Re: Retro Games

Never played or seen the Master System version on sonic. Used to love Sonic and still do today I have it on my 360 (since Sega decided to release all the sonic games on the xbox 360)

Re: Retro Games

There was different graphics, completely different zones and different ways of getting emeralds.

Emerald wise emeralds were not in the 'special zone' they were out in the zones hidden in obscure locations.

Master System Sonic 1:

Mega Drive Sonic 1:

Sonic 2 for the master system was also very different compared to the Mega Drive version in terms of graphics and zones.

Sonic 1 wise though... on the master system, it is non stop scrolling right or up (zone depending) but was the same for all zones. So you couldn't just chill or go slowly, because if you did, you'd die! The Mega Drive version didn't have this going on.

For a less popular console the Master System had some good games on it and it was interesting how Sega made versions of the OS for it which came with a built-in game (it was a nice ft. and saved them money when putting the units together for sale.)

You were lucky then, my school had the BBC desktop PCs too, but the only games they allowed were programming or math focused games like 'Teacher in the Custard'  - in which you had to calculate math fast enough (and repeatedly) to stop the pixel teacher falling into the pixel custard.
