My Second Console ever owned. I wish i never sold it. So many memories staying up laying in bed playing...I had a little TV in my room i played on! So many great games, I'm sure I'll forget some:
All the Sonics, but especially Sonic 3, Sonic and Knuckles and Sonic Spinball

Funny enough, I honestly think this is my favorite console...and i never even had it!!
Super Mario RPG
Zelda: Link to the past
Mickey Mouse: Magical Quest (Dont knock till you try it)
TMNT:Turtles in time

Donkey Kong Country
Though only a few, my fat green original gameboy holds a big place in my heart with one of my favorite games: Zelda: Links Awakening. To name a few others the original Pokemon (blue), Milons Secret Castle, Super Mario Land, the Donky Kong Country with Diddy Kong and a few others I'm sure.
Another console i didnt have but still houses many hours of my childhood growing up is the N64. Another short List but worthy of mentioning:
Diddy Kong Racing
Mario Kart 64
Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Gauntlet Legends (SMASH!! Barb luv)
I think if i had the console i would have gotten more into 007 but everytime i played with everyone i got my ass handed to me. Thus the downfall of my "not being great at FPS's" begins haha.
My third/fourth consoles.... i was middle/high school school by this time and this introduced me to the Resident Evil, Silent Hill and Suikoden Franchises. I become fascinated the game styles of with the world of survival horror and also RPG's with probably my favorite game: Suikoden 2! Oh yeah, on to the list!:
Resident Evil 1/2/3/4 (Liked 4 on Gamecube more)
Silent Hill 1/2/3
Breath of Fire 3
Shadow of the Colossus
Soul Caliber 2
Parasite Eve 1/2.
Brave Fencer Musashi.
IQ: Intelligent Cube
Technically i played Chrono Trigger and FFIV on PS with a collection package.
Street S8r (Screw Tony Hawk, this was easier!
Metal Gear Solid
As with all consoles I'm sure I'm missing a few, so many years :)
Yes after the PS1/PS2 I jumped on the Xbox bandwagon skipping the original xbox and thereafter skipping the PS3. Only a few games brought be in with the 360. The Gears of War Franchise, the only racing game I've really ever liked (Need for Speed: Most Wanted), Bioshock, and yeah thats about it...because around this time in high school through college I became savvy with computers and building them....some games that would have fallen into XBOX 360 were housed in a PC for my game playing enjoyment.
Wow I've played a lot of games!! I'm going to try and list the games in order of around when i played them so you could see the growth:
Ultimate Spin Doctor
Dungeon Keeper 1/2
Asheron's Call I'd like to give its own little section since i played this game for 10 years or so. So many friends, experiences, losses, achievements; so many memories with building a monarchy and being one of the most respected on the server Harvestgain. Gt was the name. If any of you played, share your memories. After so long I grew apart from the game and the updates stopped coming but I'm glad they kept the servers running to jump back in now and then to relive some memories and see some old friends.
Dark Souls 3
XBOX 1/PS4 Favorites
I group these together because I only have a few items but they have made an impact on where I am at my current gaming history. Destiny was the reason I got my Xbox 1 and i downloaded Tomb Raider when it was free and almost completed that. This was one of the first consoles I ever got close to a launch and it was to play Destiny with my cousin. It has been an on and off game that has made a lot of fun and frustrations.
This leads me to my most recent game on my newly purchased ps4: The Last Guardian. This has been something I had waited years for with Shadow of the Colossus being one of my favorite games. Fortunately it did not disappoint (Other than some camera angles and controls: the game story and how it progressed was a masterpiece. Here's to a promising game future and a great reflection of the past! *Toast*
Horizon Zero Dawn
God of War
