I really liked Blasto and Medievil when I was little. I still think they are good games even today.

The games I remember playing the most were Smash Bros, Mario Kart, and Goldeneye for the N64. For the Playstation, I spent a lot of time playing the star wars episode 1 game as well as the two Gran Turismo games. Couldn't really pick a favorite out of these, they were all excellent games.
