I like Metal Slug,it's just so fun, and you don't need to be from certain countries in order to enjoy it.

Haha, I s'pose the "classics" depend on age, eh? I was 3 when OoT was released. What console was Net Hack on?

I just googled it. I guess it came out on PC? The date is 1987. Wow.

To me to be considered 'classic' it has to have come out before the internet proper came into existence, and thus before I was born.

Uh-huh, i grew up with MS DOS and i played games like Camelot, Iceman, King's Quest IV,The Colonel's Bequest, Wolfenstein 3D, Red Barron, and several other floppy disk games.

Does those games count as classics?

The first Kings Quest does, but the rest, no. You want to see the classic version of Red Baron look up Sopwith.
