    The internet is bursting with love for your Zeldas, your Final Fantasies, and your Super Marios, but what about those games that slipped by the wayside back in the day? What about the underrated classics that no one else seems to remember?

    This thread is for those games that were all but forgotten, lost in time and destined to only be remembered by a select few. If you have a game from back in the day that you believe everyone should play, let us know and give us your elevator pitch on why it's worth our time in 2018.

    Back in the age of couch co-ops, there was nothing better than sitting with a friend and shooting at zombies and other undead critters while trying your best to save all the neighbors in each level. Got pretty hard as the game went on, but it was full of so much humor you almost didn't mind. Great fun!

    I've been playing loads of Super Mario World romhacks. I feel people who think SMW is easy should try to play what I've been playing.

    One game from the 1980's that I played religiously was "Aquatron", the Apple II version, man does the video below bring back memories! Good and bad, getting blown up after trying forever usually resulted in me slamming the table and yelling out some profanity. Good times!!! Seriously, this game was awesome and had things like a day night sequence way back.
