    It just made the cut! It released in Japan in Dec of 1999. One of my favorite games of all time(behind Shenmue 2).

    The thing I appreciate about certain decades is their vibe. I'm more into the 80s myself (despite mostly being aware I was alive in 90s) but there's no denying that 90s flavor. Jet Moto captures that essence and runs wild with it. I can't put a number on how many hours I used to get down on some jet bike racing, with sponsors like Mountain Dew being proudly displayed.

    One of the best platformers out there. Should be one of the greats.

    I was recently working on using a Raspberry Pi to help bring all of my retro game collection into one solid place and one of the very first games I tested it with is this one. While reading more info, I'd leave Sonic on a level for awhile, jam to the tunes, finish the level, and repeat the process. The soundtrack alone is phenomenal and it's arguably one of the best reasons to own a Genesis to this day.

    Command & Conquer: Red Alert

    I don't always play RTSs, but when I do, I play Red Alert.

    I never play any of these kinds of games. But back then i played a lot of that game. I would just sit there making my base as awesome as i could and making different types of squads to go out on missions. Never played the game the way i was suppose to.

    It's just too good to be left outside. Boy, was I too young to play this back then, but I'm so glad I did! :)

    Because Doom and Half Life (and Duke Nukem 3d) are the only single player shooters from the 90's you actually need.

    One of the best Turn Based Strategy games out there, and easily holds up, though the second expansion didn't come until 2000... But the base game and it's first expansion are still great regardless.

    Figured I'd give the RTS genre so more love in this list.

    Back in the day, I had a science class where the teacher literally did not care what we did for her class. It was stocked with computers so like any nerdy kids, we quickly loaded it with any games we could find. AOE took over the entire class as we all tried out different civilizations and would see how far we could get. Once we discovered cheat codes, the game become legendary.

    Not enough N64 love on here. In my opinion the best Mario game. Definitely still holds up.

    Your right, and i never really played it, but it should be there.

    Those early days of Insomniac Games, and man, did they make a firm base for their studio with the Spyro games. I love how you can see all the things that then were further developed in Ratchet & Clank. They were really good already here.
