For me it’d have to be DOOM. This game is featured in about every top games list for older consoles, and for good reason. Redefining what a first person shooter game can be is no minor feat, but DOOM managed it excellently. Taking on hordes of monsters and demons while fighting every moment to stay alive has never stopped being exhilarating even all these years later, no matter platform you play this game on.

When people think of Star Wars Arcade, they usually think of Atari’s revolutionary arcade game from 1983. The 32X version looks a lot like that game, but it’s a port of Sega’s underappreciated Model 1 arcade game from a decade later. By today’s standards, the game is basic, but in 1994, seeing a polygonal depiction of a classic Star Wars movie was very impressive. The three space-based missions in the game are based on events from the original trilogy. Players must intercept TIE Fighters in an asteroid field, face off a Super Star Destroyer, and launch an attack run on the Death Star in these levels.

In the mid-1990s, fighting games were all the rage, and Mortal Kombat was one of the most popular. The game was notable for its digital graphics, massive amounts of blood, and fatality moves. Mortal Kombat’s popularity was partly propelled by its provocative themes, but the sequel perfected the gameplay and outperformed the original in every way. The number of characters has practically doubled, the move sets have been enlarged, the controls have been improved, and additional finishing moves have been added. Mortal Kombat II was even more brutal and bloody than its predecessor, and it is widely regarded as the best game in the series.

Knuckles Chaotix has all the familiar feels and fun of the Genesis Sonic games, plus some new innovations. The graphics, while not a huge step up, are noticeably better. Overall, very fun for such an obscure game, and it even has a save feature to pick up right where you left off. The ring-chain thing takes some time to get used to, but it’s interesting once you do. Each character has their own unique abilities, such as Knuckles’ glide or Espio’s camouflage. A good buy for collector’s, and fun.

Any WWF game is going to be a good one, but Wrestlemania comes with 8 fully digitalized characters that each have their own moves. You can even choose between arcade mode, tournament mode, or VS mode, depending on what kind of challenge you’re looking for.

This classic virtual fighter gameplay is one of the best 32x video games ever programmed. The game is based on an arcade game. Its realistic 3D polygon graphics, multiple camera angles, music, and sound effect are better than any other 32x game. This gameplay has 8 warriors with different fighting styles, special moves, sounds, and strengths that make this game more interesting. The new features are customized fighter clothing, group tournament fights and you can also see full match replay actions.

Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island is a platform game developed by Nintendo and released in 1995. It was the sequel to Super Mario World and the third installment in the Super Mario series. The game is considered one of the best games in the franchise, with many levels that are considered difficult or even impossible to complete without help from outside sources such as glitches or guides.

I’ve always made mine Marvel, and for as long as I can remember Stan and Jack’s web-slinger has been my favorite superhero, so it was and is fortuitous that my favorite game features my favorite hero. I can’t even begin to calculate the number of hours that I spent playing this game, but my wife would probably tell you that it was way too many. But in my opinion, it was time well spent.

A must-check out unheralded early 3D gaming! This is a fun game for retro gamers. Sega, like Super Nintendo, experimented with 3D polygon graphics around 1994, but instead of incorporating Super FX chips into games, Sega merely increased the size of the cartridges. While the game may appear to be a black monolith from 2001 emerging from your Genesis, it actually plays rather well. The graphics are a little rough, and the game is plainly early 3D, but it’s still fun to play. The game’s strongest selling point is its two-player option. This game should be in the collection of any true Sega fan, thanks to its powerful (for the time) Sega Virtua Processor and fantastic music. One of the greatest racing games ever created.
