Top Tuesday: 5 Games That Will Never Get Old

Rachel Mii | DoubleJump.comHappy Tuesday!
Lately, I’ve been playing games that have been sitting in my game bucket for a while. Some of these games have been forgotten over the years, especially with new consoles and games constantly being announced and released. There are some games, however, that will always and forever just be awesome.
5 games that will never get old | video games |
Mario Party 2
Kris and I have played this game a couple times recently. I don’t know what made us decide to play it again but we did and we’ve been having a lot of fun with it. It’s refreshing to play again since there haven’t been many great Mario Party games in a long time.
Paper Mario
I will never get over this game. Paper Mario is just fantastic all around. Between the gameplay, characters, music, and graphics, Paper Mario is one of my favorites. I especially love the graphics. The Nintendo 64 had great graphics for its time, but I feel like Paper Mario took it up a level, despite how simple it is.
Animal Crossing
The original Animal Crossing game for the Gamecube was great. It was simple and casual. I love New Leaf, probably more so than the original game, but the Gamecube game has a certain charm to it. It was the beginning of a now huge series that everyone loves and adores. I’m still keeping my fingers crossed for a Switch game.
Pokemon Crystal (or any old Pokemon game)
I say Crystal specifically because Nintendo just released it on the virtual console for the 3DS. Playing the older games now can be annoying because you can’t run right away or not at all, your item inventory is limited, etc. Still, the original games are wonderful and bring back a lot of memories.
Super Mario 64
Who doesn’t love this game? This game has made history. It’s hard for me to explain why I love this game so much because I just do. Like Paper Mario, I just love the goofy graphics, the random glitches (as annoying as they are), the music, and various levels and tasks. It’s great.

What are some games you’ve played and replayed over the years? Let me know in the comments below!

  1. For me Donkey Kong Country, Turtles In Time, L.A. Noire, Saints Row The 3rd and most recently Mega Man 2 are games that never get old to me. Oh before I forget here’s a post I did on emulators:

  2. Here are my old school games:
    any Mega Man game for Nintendo
    Super Mario Brothers 3
    Street Fighter 3: Third Strike
    Marvel vs. Capcom
    Soul Calibur
    F-Zero X
    Pokémon: Blue/Red/Yellow Version
    Sonic the Hedgehog 2
    TMNT: The Arcade Game
    X-Men Arcade Game

  3. I constantly return to Super Mario Bros., Tetris, Ms. Pac-Man, and Final Fantasy.

  4. Pretty much any Final Fantasy could be played/replayed again for me ad infinitum. Then there’s NES age Mario like SMB 3 and the SNES’s Super Mario World. Tetris will never grow old, but I could say that for any puzzle game like Adventures of Lolo 3. In terms of watching, there will never come a time where I won’t enjoy a Let’s Play of any Legend of Zelda!

  5. I just answered this on your other post, but… Super Mario RPG! 😁 And I love any version of Picross.

    • You can’t go wrong with Super Mario RPG. 😉 I didn’t start getting into Picross until they came out with Pokemon Picross on the 3DS. But it’s great and I want to try more.

  6. I really liked Picross DS! I imagine it’s pretty cheap now. Or they have little mini versions you can get in the eShop for a few dollars.
