Tatsujin, what game is #10? It looks pretty familiar, but I can't quite peg it in my memory.
I agree with the Phantasy Star I. I can still remember being in awe of the 3D dungeon and the fighting scenes. I was mighty impressed. And the comment about Xevious. I also recall thinking, "Wow, look at that cool shiny-reflective properties of metal - that's really cool".
As for a some ones that are burned in my memory...
Pitfall - I still remember this game really wowing me. I believe it was the first game where I really felt I was part of some adventure.
Kung Fu. I loved this game in the arcade (though it was Kung Fu _Master_), and when I saw this game had come out with the launch of the NES, I soooo wanted the system. When my mom agreed to buy it for me (thanks mom!) I recall going to Toys R Us and seeing this cover on display. It's kind of a shitty port now that I think about it, but hell - it was great at that time!
Defender of the Crown (Amiga) - this was my first glance at the Amiga back in sometime like 87 or so. I couldn't believe how good this looked, when all I could get at the time was my NES (and I thought the NES looked pretty good). I walked away from the guy's house very very jealous.
Phantsy Star II - the mind-blowing dungeons. Some hated the ceiling pipes, but I thought it was kinda neat. The story is something that I still can't forget to this day. And I just about forgotten ALL the RPG storylines I've played back in those days. Especially the Neifirst and the ending scenes. Brilliant.
Sonic the Hedgehog - special stage. I was blown away. It looked way better than some blocky mode-7 graphics.
SF2 (SNES) - this is when I knew that SNES was going to win out the 16-bit wars over my beloved Genesis. It wasn't a perfect port, but damn good enough.
Thunder Force IV - I care not what the haters say (Keranu!) - the parallex of this game was awesome.
