In addition to text-only adventure games like Zork (which I highly recommend), you should check out things like Star Raiders and Miner 2049er from the old Atari 400/800 days.

Crud missed the 5 min window.
How about a nice game of Dragon Warrior?

I think I have the NES Dragon Warrior for the PS1. I got it from a buddy. I do not think it was commercial.

A few ideas:

- The original Prince of Persia
- Adventure on the atari 2600
- Mario 64 if you've never played it
- Marble Madness (arcade, available in MAME)

@xarous: yes, Chrono Trigger! best game ever

I hate RPG games, and I loved Chrono Trigger. So that should tell you something.

The original Legend of Zelda.

If you have beat it many times and no longer find it to be a challenge then take on a new type of game. Never pick up a sword.

Sounds impossible but its not. Make use to secrets to everybodies and gamble to get cash for bombs and arrows. The biggest challenge it to get the magic wand, that is a major pain since you deal with the shield eaters, witches and locking doors. Once you get the wand it becomes fairly straight forward. Magic beam is good for distance and the wand is as strong as the 2nd sword for close range strikes. Advice, do not pick up the magic book as it reduces the value of the magic beam. Too bad you cannot beat the game without a sword, can only get to the final boss.

How can you even ask? Earthbound for sure! Then go thru Chrono and do all the different endings, and finish by getting down with some Castlevania.

@supersox: is correct. If you don't have Bubble Bobble on your Wii there is just no hope for you.

Hide and Seek was a good one.

Yeah Chrono Trigger is awesome, definitely play it. I also liked FFIII.

@caffeine_dude: YES YES YES!
My dad and i were addicted to this game! I recall many a night when my mom woke up at 2am, noticing my dad wasnt there, and yelled at us for being up that late, lol.

@caffeine_dude: wow that game totally rocked! I am not very good at playing in general, but I was fascinated by watching people (my younger brother especially) play when I was growing up. This was one of both of our favorites.

I also vote with @miken927 for Marble Madness. That was one of the few games besides car driving games that I absolutely loved to play myself.

@raider9924: I love that game, but I don't think I've ever beaten the second quest- if you don't look anything up you need to bomb everything.

Megaman x, x2, and x3 are all great games too.

edit: and if you want something difficult, solstice.

@mkdr: @dmaz: if you were talking about Ultima. I would hear my mom come down at 5am to go to work. I would unplug the video feed on the NES, cover the light, lay down, and drool on myself so she thought I had fell asleep watching TV. For the next 30 minutes when she was getting ready I would be peeking out my window waiting for the car to leave to finish my game.

I found a bug. I got stuck and could not figure it out. I called the 800 number, and they helped me in minutes and they told me it was a bug.

Have you ever played the original Myst? If you have the patience, it's a really immersive game. You can easily spend hours wandering around trying to figure stuff out and not get bored.

@caffeine_dude: +1 Metal freaking slimes.... UGH! I loved that game though!

First up - Hero's Quest: So you want to be a hero, or as it was renamed after trademark issues cropped up, Quest for Glory: So you want to be a hero. Even the sequels are entertaining.
Humour, challenges, and a bit of magic - what could possibly be better!

Second up - The original Monkey Island series: Secret of Monkey Island, Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge, and so forth.
Comedy, monkeys, comedy, puzzles, comedy, pirates, and comedy - what could possibly be better!

Honourable mention - Loom, the Lucasfilm adventure/puzzle game where you play as a character who manipulates the world through musical spells woven on your distaff.
Tapestry, holes in the sky, musical memorisation, and swans - what could possibly be better!

@miken927: I whole-heartedly endorse marble madness via MAME. The NES version was a sad port of a great arcade title.

@panthiest: It's a shame that it will never be released as a Wii virtual console title.
