    I rediscovered my interest in Lemmings. I haven't played it on the Super Nintendo for 18 years, nor did I have any idea that Lemmings games were actually made on the PS2 and PS3. Perhaps I'll check out the other games, but for that I'll need an actual PS2 or PS3. I also had a PS2, but it died on me, but had I known, I would've gotten it in 2006. It's one of my earliest memories of gaming on an actual console of my own because Super Nintendo was my first system ever, and I could've sworn that I got Lemmings not too long after getting Super Mario World and Super Mario Kart. I kind of also got it not too long after Road Runner's Death Valley Rally, which I also played too much of at the this point.

    And this is a given, at least for me, but I also still keep finding myself returning to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles IV: Turtles in Time a lot. My favorite so far is still Donatello, much to my surprise with Leonardo being a close second. It seemed to change, since Leonardo used to be my main, and then Raphael.

    Turtles in Time Arcade or SNES?

    The only thing I liked about the SNES version was the two extra stages. TMNT arcade games are in my top 10 ever...so much nostalgia.

    Damn, this thread is so nostalgic it almost killed me I miss those button phones too, at least those had some individuality.

    At least I have emulators on my phone to play this anywhere I want.
    The other nostalgic moment I remember is playing Diablo 2 at LAN-party first time, I miss those times. But I'm glad that old-school games like Path of Exile exist which can offer similar experience. Too bad that I don't have much time for playing it now, but at least I can but some exalted orbs here and don't farm it.

    Ok, I'm just going to scream this one from the rooftops as loud as possible... if you have fond nostalgia for retro games from the 16 bit era... games like Streets of Rage, Shinobi, Strider, old school racing games like Rad Racer, Gradius... and you want to play a game that might actually make you choke back tears, play 198X right now. Seriously. I'm not sure how far I am into it, I assume I'm near the end, but I'm already calling it that this is one of the best games I'll ever play.

    My small dream* is a Raspberry Pi emulator-based system for all of the Mario Karts and F-Zero games... and then buying the relevant carts/discs for display next to it.

    Based off of watching this:



    (* - small dream because I'm not much of a gamer and I doubt I'd spend much time playing it solo, I want it for socializing... and since that barely happens, well, it's small dream... a nice thing... later.... much later)

    I came across a meme the other day that had the old The Simpson's arcade game. Does anybody know if that's available to download and/or play anywhere? There has to be.

    Not legally apparently, they removed them from PSN and Xbox Arcade.

    I wonder if Disney would be able to bring it back out, they own the Simpsons franchise now i think right? i imagine that would translate over to the games as well.

    The iOS port was pretty good, i still own it on my apple account but the game is pretty much useless on new hardware.
