    Default Games from your birth year

    I was born in 1992 and Super Mario Kart was released in that year among other esteemed titles.

    I was born in 1991.

    Hmm, where do I begin? Sonic the Hedgehog, Final Fantasy IV, Streets of Rage, Battletoads, Metroid II: Return of Samus... It was also the year that the SNES first launched outside of Japan, so I guess you could add the SNES launch titles to this list as well, like Super Mario World and F-Zero.


    I have claimed Dialga, Vivi Ornitier, Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild (Wii U), and "In the Final" - Mario & Luigi: Bowser's Inside Story.

    My Nintendo Switch FC is SW-6036-6032-0737. If you're interested in playing Splatoon 2 or MK8 Deluxe with me, let me know!

    There are probably some more games harking from my birth year but the only one I can recall is the Japanese release for Pokemon Emerald, aka 2004 (damn I'm young). Coincidentally, it was released there on September 16th, which was the day I joined this forum last year, so I guess that's two birth dates in some way?

    Now those are true classics indeed. Shame that I haven't played any Legend of Zelda games. Or any Metroid games for that matter...

    1995. Tales of Phantasia (the first game in the Tales series) and Chrono Trigger immediately come to mind.

    Some other games I think are worth mentioning:


    • Rayman
    • Dragon Quest VI
    • Street Fighter Alpha
    • Castlevania: Dracula X
    • Phantasy Star IV
    • Tekken 2
    • Warcraft II
    • Yoshi's Island


    So yeah, a lot of classics and even the debut of two franchises.

    Luigi's Mansion
    Mario Kart: Super Circuit
    Pikmin
    and the Gamecube was also released that year

    All these games except Melee and Pikmin I also grew up with because my brother had them.

    I was born in 2001 and some of the notable games released in that year were: (mostly repeating what Shinehollow said)

    -Paper Mario
    -Final Fantasy IX
    -Final Fantasy X
    -Bejeweled? (I played that game and games similar to it as a kid)
    -Pokemon Crystal
    -Super Smash Bros. Melee (was released in 2001 in JP and NA but I was born in Europe where it was released in 2002 so it doesn't really count for me)

    Not that much



    I've claimed Komachi Onozuka, Celesteela, Super Smash Bros. for Wii U and Splash Woman Stage (music)

    I'm an old, born in 1983. So some of the big games that came out during my birth year were:

    - Mario Bros (the original arcade game, NOT Super Mario Bros)
    - Mappy
    - Elevator Action
    - Tapper

    All stuff like that. This was before the NES was released outside of Japan, when things like the Atari 2600 were big. This was also the same year as the big video game crash in North America.
