That classic gaming era

It was a boring day, like 2 weeks ago, i went to live with my sis because school is on a city in where she lives, anyways, she has no internet, only me and my laptop, and weather sucked (too cold) like to play sports or stuff... i just watched TV that day, until my brother-in-law gave me a CD with a bunch of ol' SNES games, i was not that exited ("oh well, lets get through that yoshi island game again" i thought) and then i saw something that got my attention, i like biology and stuff so the name E.V.O: Search for Eden made me like stop and press the "Run" button.

The game was good, really good if we think about the time it was done, like a spiritual SPORE prequel, with a more specified goal, hell i love that game, lots of customization and options... Anyways, that got me thinking about all those good games, those old times where interaction and ability meant more than just graphics and Hardware specifications.

Im not saying that today's gaming industry is not better, i enjoy games like the Guitar Hero trilogy, Halo 3, GTA IV, The Sims, Dragonball Z BT Series, and many others, but what im trying to say here is that that ol' school games have that escense...

The problem is that, like in EVO's case, they are EXTREMELY underrated, i mean, is that kind of games that you never heard of, but when you play them, you can feel that "ARG i was about to defeat it!" feeling that comes with the old console games (no memory cards existed back in the day).

Im finishing this, saying thank you for taking your time reading this, and making mention of some good games that were underrated but made me have very good times.

-E.V.O: Search for Eden-Dr Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine
-Megaman X4
-Dragon Ball Legends-Street Fighter II
-DOOM
-Mortal Kombat II-Sonic the hedgehog 3 & Knuckles
-Star Fox 64

Which of this games made you have good times? Do you have the opportunity to play them now? (on the original console, not on the WII arcade) Which other games made you feel that great challenge?
