Gradius 2 its for me the best on the saga.
Compile shooters are also great but a bit repetitive

Usas: it was my first platformer to finish.
Maze of galious: a lot of time discovering the castle (thanks to the password system). Fortunately these days you can play games with emulator and save the state.
Konami's football: quick games.
Fruit panic: Also for quick games.
SD-Snatcher: First RPG to finish.
Fray: I love the graphics and the music

What are your personal favorite retro games? Your favorite genres? The more info you can give about your specific tastes in gaming, the better able we'll be to custom-tailor recommendations for you!

I have no personal preference for genre. If I'm enjoying the game I'll play it. I'm using original hardware so no cassette games and I don't know Japanese. Those are the only requirements.
