Major Spoilers Question Of The Day: I Thought Dennis Hopper Was Pretty Good Edition

With the upcoming demise of Nintendo Power magazine, I have been swept up in a wave of video game nostalgia, breaking out some of my old N64 games and playing myself a little blocky Donkey Kong and Mario Kart goodness.  My daughter is fascinated by the fact that Super Mario Brothers 3 is playable on our Wii, but hasn’t got the patience to play through the levels, instead cycling the first two worlds over and over because she has the threats mostly memorized.  Either way, we’ve found some nice cheap entertainment in old-school games, even though she is bother by (in her words) “the much lower polygon count” of the 64.  Yes, I am proud, thanks for asking…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) is sorry that your princess is in another castle, asking:
What is your favorite “old-school” gaming experience?  (Imaginary bonus points will be allotted for 8-bit games.)
