Zelda, Final Fantasy, Katamari Damacy (don't ask), Bomberman, and, oddly enough, the game "Mr. Driller". All of these games make me feel nostaligic about something.

A Link to the Past. It reminds me of Christmas of 92'. It that year that i got an SNES and a original Game Boy. I think it was 92'. Been a long time. One of thebest Christmas(es) ever.

Any footage or screens of FFVIII will send me a strong desire to watch the opening and ending FMVs. God, I love those FMVs.

Bioshock, since the whole setting of the game is circa 1959-ish. Makes you think you're watching an old Happy Days episode.

Good lists guys!

Mine would have to include: Mario Bros, any Legend of Zelda song, F-Zero, Donkey Kong Country. I'm sure theres a bunch more but these ones stick out the most.

The most obvious answer is Super Mario.

I'll also go with various tracks from Goldeneye and Perfect Dark, and (while not exactly music) the sound of SCV's in Starcraft mining crystals while nothing else is going on.

Nothing sends me reeling back through the space time continuum more than the original Super Mario Bros. tunes.

Street Fighter II, DKC, Final Fight Top Gear 2. The only nostalgic aspect missing from video games is odor and in MK II's case, it would be the stench of death!

Ah good, the topic exists already. Saves me making one. :D


More than any other, it's when "Flight Castle" comes on, it reminds me of the intro to what's probably my favourite game of all time: Unreal.

Was one of the first games i tried with my first 3DFX-equipped computer. Needless to say my jaw hit the floor at the graphics of the time; Unreal was just so, so far ahead of everything that i'd seen beforehand. And the music ALWAYS reminds me of that moment.


That game had so many great music tracks. Sunspire, Chizra, Dusk Horizon. All make my nostalgia gland vibrate.

And the game itself.. wow.

That's it, reinstalling... :D

The music for the main menu in this game is one of my favorite pieces of music ever. I don't feel nostalgic for it though because I played it for the first time in the last year or so. I guess they style of gameplay was nostalgic for me though, being very much in the old sixteen-bit vein.

Speaking of which, the games I am most nostalgic for are the two Lunar games for Sega CD. I have actually avoided replaying these for some time for fear they won't live up to my memory of them.
