Upgrading to the new 2022 2.1 SMF core (years in WIP)! Mobile/Phone support by default, finally! I must port all my custom features and redo the theme however, but worth the trouble! I may still look at XenForo too.

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!  :dance:

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.
