    I have been playing Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword here lately and it is good. =D But I also love any of the Pokemon games, and Metroid series.

    I like pokemon video games ^_^ It feels nice to bond with your team and strategize against your opponents. And i've been a fan of the games for years too lol so they're a little nostalgic for me (i became a pokemon fan at the age of 11)

    Playing pokemon games on the internet is a ton of fun, too. And all the attacks look so cool!

    I also really like super smash brothers melee, but that's a really old game for the nintendo game cube and likely rare and expensive now. I've spent SO many hours playing that game, though! Especially as Kirby XD His fighting style and the way he copies his opponents are just soooo adorable! And he's my favorite color

    EDIT: Had to fix some stuff on this post XD

    Not shooters.

    I came in late to the classics, Unreal Tournament (the original) and Quake III. I think it was in 2004, but my PC was from 1998 and couldn't play anything more modern, and I had a blast with those games. I was actually a gamer as a kid, but when I reached young adulthood I had a break of up to 6 years due to circumstances and when I got around to playing these old games in 2004 they didn't feel old. I had no concept of what was old and what was new, and they were just fun and I was still playing old Amiga games from no later than 1994 (at the newest) back in 1998, so I really missed 10 years there.

    Since that time, the appeal of such games quickly waned. Maybe the games after those two got worse, or just felt more repetitive (I can still play those old games). I don't know. I'm really tired of shooting people or monsters endlessly.

    Possibly the one which has brought me the most happiness is point and click. For those not 'in the know', point and click games are otherwise known as adventure games. They are so-called because they involve you pointing to objects of interests or where to walk on screen with your mouse. They are puzzle games, which require you to think.

    The absolute definitive examples of the genre are the Monkey Island games, which are silly games which employ silly logic. They were the original home entertainment designed around Pirates of the Carribean, the joy ride, which subsequently got turned into the film franchise. So the games are sort of the Pirates of the Carribean films before there was the Pirates of the Carribean films. There are differences and similarities; the chief difference being that in Monkey Island, you play as a blonde pirate named Guybrush Threepwood, not Jack Sparrow. The humor is a similar silly style between them. They're not the same stories, but they are the same in humor and spirit.

    There are many classics of the point and click genre, many I haven't gotten around to playing. And many are still being made in the classic format by indie developers.

    These days, point and click games have evolved into interactive fiction with little problem solving, that are more about the story and interacting with the story (not quite choose your own adventure aka. gamebooks, as the game can't make an unlimited number of outcomes; you just nuance the story). These games include The Walking Dead, Life is Strange and Dreamfall (the first Dreamfall game is the Longest Journey, which is classic puzzle solving point and click, albeit really boring). Many are being made by a group called TellTale, who several years ago released Back to the Future and Tales from Monkey Island which still had at that point puzzle solving elements.

    They're good for kids, they make you think, they're funny... probably the best genre.

    Recommended games:

    The Secret of Monkey Island 1 & 2
    The Curse of Monkey Island
    Escape from Monkey Island (though problematic, still funny)
    Tales from Monkey Island
    Back to the Future (with voice work from Christopher Lloyd)
    Syberia (possibly with adult themes, but maybe not; it's a bit grim in places)
    Still Life (for adults)
    Life is Strange
    Dreamfall (haven't played Dreamfall Chapters yet)
    The Walking Dead seasons 1 & 2 (obviously adult themed)
    Simon the Sorcerer (although I am hesitant, as the puzzle solving is really luck based as you need to puzzle solve everything in sequence; still, it looks like pixel heaven and is in the funny style)

    There are many I never got around to playing through which haven't made this list. I have most of the 'classics' bought from GOG (some are being given away by GOG last I looked). I'd like to recommend the Myst games. I think I was playing Myst IV (or was it III?) which just wowed me with the art style. But a lot of the puzzles are just too hard to figure out without cheating, which ruins the game.

    I can actually give away some keys to some point and click games, most notably Walking Dead.

    Here are the free GOG games (most not regarded as classics, but were from the classic era):

    I doubt you will see this genre mentioned here, so I'll be the one: Rogue. Those who didn't grow up around computers in the '80s or '90s will never understand this genre. It started with a game called Rogue, and spawned variants, the two most notable in antiquity being Moria (since become Angband) and Hack (which became Nethack, and despite the title it isn't played on the 'net).

    The original games had a map, a character and monsters drawn up in ASCII text but they then evolved to included tiled graphics which is how I started playing them.



    The games were randomized, so every game was something new. I was never any good at it, but had a laugh at the scores and the various monsters who killed me. They were scoring games, so they had a great deal of replayability. In fact, the originals logged all games.

    These days you have games called Rogue-likes. These games have little to do with true Rogue games. They're usually called Rogue-likes because they have randomized/procedurally generated elements. There is still some life left in the genre, with modern versions Tales of Maj'Eyal and Dungeons of Dreadmore. There have been a couple of others, mostly variations of variants that were once free.

    At the time I was getting into them in the early '90s, there were Dungeon Crawlers which were graphically superior. But some times the best things are the minimalist games. And I spent a lot of time playing Moria and Nethack back in the day. It was a blast. I can't seem to get into them as much anymore, though.

    For those curious about this area of gaming history, the two main games are free (as they have always been) and sometimes still updated (rarely), laying claim to be the oldest games still in development:

    http://www.nethack.org/
    http://rephial.org/

    Here's a browser playable Hack for those who don't want to install or download anything, but don't know if it's any good:

    http://coolwanglu.github.io/BrowserHack/

    (Typically, you had arrow and mouse control of the player, but there it is mouse only for some reason. These are the list of commands if the rest matches up with Nethack: http://www.nethack.org/v343/Guidebook.html#_TOCentry_7)

    It's hardcore stuff! Certainly beats Pong, anyway.
