My favorite is definately Donkey Kong Country (the first one) for SNES. Surprisingly now when I think about it I like that game more than most 3d games I've played, maybe even more than all the 3d games I've played. Every time I think about the game it makes me want to buy another Super Nintendo and the Donkey Kong game.
 3 or 4 years ago my SNES didn't work any more and I threw out all my games with it (what a stupid thing to do!). Now I look at some of these games on eBay and see that they're all worth like 10 bucks each! I had about 11-12 games.
i know the feeling... i did 2, and it was just the power plug... ohhhh DKC...

mmm... was first Larry a 2d game? Metroid was GREAT (specially the end, if you make a lot of score, Metroid put of dress and you have a big surprise -and probably you'll restart the game to make a better score).
Wonderboy (the first)... and Kid Icarus...
But I think the first Atari games are the best!!

I played a bit of metroid...it was alright, kindof hard though, i would of been better if I still had my SNES and was able to play it on that, the controls feel weird on a keyboard. Never played any of he other games you mentioned, except ofcourse Pong...good times...lol.

Here's something different:
The first game ever created was made in 1958 by William Higinbotham.
The first version of Pong/Tennis/Hockey/ect... called 'Tennis for Two'
Played on an oscilloscope.
I dont know if Ive posted that before or not..w/e

What, no one here liked Target: Earth? To this day that's one of my favorite side-scrollers ever, simply because the art was cool, you actually had ALLIES fighting beside you (no more one man vs an army) and I'm a sucker for run-and-gun games.

I mean, the 8th stage had you flying through space fighting other mecha with a backdrop of a giant Earth fleet of ships (probably in the range of 20 or ships including the command ship which was like... 3 screens long) vs a fleet of alien ships (even more ships and a mothership that was 6 screens wide or something) all of whom were firing at each other while their respective mecha fought in their shadows.

Flying through stage 8 with capital ships blasting away on all sides and you, your buddies and the enemy all dogfighting while it goes on is STILL one of my best game experiences in a side-scrolling game... Target: Earth just felt truly epic, especially in that last space battle stage.

On the commodore 64, i loved 'Son of blagger' and 'Monty mole' by Antony Crowther. I would like to remake son of blagger on pc. I am currently analyzing 'Scrolling Game Development Kit' and 'Game maker' to see how to do this remake.

for me, it would be any game that has the name "mario" in it. the best of all of them is Yoshi's island (SMA3) and Mario and Luigi Superstar saga. best of all is the original Super Mario Bros.

I think I played Another World a long time ago, but I don't remember what system it was on.  What system(s) is it available for?  I was at someone else's house.  It could have been an Amiga 500 or a Nintendo.
