List 2020s games if you get lost. Rank ordering isn't necessary, just narrow it down to a list of five. Leave brief reasons for specific games/series if you desire. Crucially, above all else, DON'T POST IMAGES of the games in my thread please - text will suffice!! Few dense TSR regs have a habit of this.

Alright, time to push this forward, gamers.


1980s

Phantasy Star
R-Type
Shinobi
Super Mario Bros. 3
Wonderboy in Monster Land

Top bloke, take your time. Last year posted the exact same thread for films starting from '70s instead. As for bomberman, after the SNES games I really like Mega Drive version, Tournament on GBA, Turbografx 16, I also enjoyed the slower Bomberman N64, but i haven't touched it in a lifetime. I keep meaning to check out PS1 & Saturn versions, haha.

Midtown went hard, it was so dumb and goofy and the graphics were good for 2000. I really wish Microsoft would get off their fat arse and get a studio to develop a Midtown Madness 4.

I played FIFA World Cup 1998 on N64 and this looks similar to the game you named. It was a decent one for that console.
