Probably Suikoden II.  Lost track of how many times I’ve played through it over the years.

Or it could be Dragon Warrior.  I’ve played it countless times but I still remember playing through it the first time with my Dad.  SXOIVLSA

Not a game I would spend a ton of time playing today unfortunately, but nothing will top it as my all time fave.

Made shooters mainstream on consoles, tons of replayability for unlockable cheats and incredible amounts of multiplayer fun.

Also came out of nowhere! Wasn't hyped at release, just came out.  Movie games were notoriously bad up to that point.  Yet this unhyped movie game comes out and people instantly start recognizing it. Still remember buying it from Walmart on a whim near release thinking it would be fun when I was in between N64 titles.  Little did I know it would be something I would identify with my entire lifetime.

I can't decide between Final Fantasy IX and Earthbound.
A close third is Ocarina of Time.

Final Fantasy IX was the first rpg that I really got into.
The graphics were amazing, the battle system was great (although a bit slow) and the soundtrack is also great.

I played Earthbound for the first time a few years and it was just incredible.
I payed the going price at the time (around US$120) and I don't regret it one bit.
It was just everything I wanted from a rpg.

Mega Man 2, for so many reasons. 

I completed a loose licensed set years ago, and one of the reasons I wanted to do it was to see if the system offered a better game than MM2.

A few hundred games and numerous hidden gems later...

I found the answer to be “no”!

I been drinking the MM2 koolaid since I was a kid.  Tough to beat the best.

I have no kid nostalgia for Mega Mans... didn't experience them until an adult.  But I really find MM2 and MM3 interchangable to me without the nostalgia.  MM2 had better weapons (Metal Blades overpowered though), but both had great music and MM3 added the slide.

SNES Final Fantasy 3, I've played a few RPGs before but nothing near as engaging as this, looking forward I've come to think that it might not have aged very well, but playing it for the first time has been my most memorable experience as a gamer. I've told my wife that if this game ever gets a remake in a modern console then that will be reason enough for me to own a modern console.

EarthBound but Super Mario 64 is right up there next to it.

EarthBound just has more nostalgia for me than any other game. It came to me at the ripe age of 13 back in 1996 and it was my 2nd RPG ever (Super Mario RPG was my introduction to the genre) and I loved the modern setting in EarthBound, the music, the humor, everything about it was memorable to me and I still replay it every year or two. 

Super Mario 64 though... I can't think of any other moment in my video game history where I was more "WOW"ed than the first time I picked up an N64 controller and played Super Marip 64. When N64 came out I was so uninterested in it, I just loved my SNES and didn't want to move on to the next gen. But I saw the game in Blockbuster in a demo unit and tried it out with much hesitation. It was mere moments later I knew I had to have an N64. All these years later I still remember everything about this game and replay it every so often.

Because it's near impossible for me to pick only 1 or 2 favorites, here's my top 10 list:
1. EarthBound
2. Super Mario 64
3. Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy's Kong Quest
4. Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
5. Conkers Bad Fur Day
6. Final Fantasy IX
7. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars
8. BioShock 2
9. Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker
10. Resident Evil 4

Definitely.  I've had a handful of other games that I've loved and will always go back to at one point or another (River City Ransom, Arcade TMNT/TMNT 2, Pool of Radiance series, etc.), but nothing hits home the way that Mega Man 2 did.  It was the first of only two games that I asked for the year that my parents finally got me an NES.  Prior to that I'd wanted the system so I could play the various games, but nothing captured my attention the way MM2 did.  My parents were initially upset when I played all the way through and beat the game on Christmas morning, just after finishing opening all my presents and getting my NES set up for the first time.  That reaction faded when I started it back up and played through again before proceeding to the other game I'd asked for and gotten that morning (Strider, for the curious).

Definitely.  The others weren't bad, but I don't think they offered quite the perfect balance of difficulty and fun that the second game hit on.  I've been disappointed when I've screwed up in that game (mostly as a kid, learning to play through it when we'd rent it at a friends house before getting my own system and copy of the game), but never exasperated, upset, or angry with it the way it would happen with other games on occasion.

Chrono Trigger.

 

i don’t even like rpg’s. But when I played this game for the first time it was amazing. I spent nearly the entire summer off playing it. Logged countless hours and still play it now. Just started a new game a couple weeks ago.

Bond is my favorite 64 game to be sure.  It's a little rough around the edges compared to modern shooters but still super fun.  I actually got rid of my 64 this year to focus on NES.  This was the only game that was really holding me back so I couldn't justify keeping it all.  N64 is pretty much a Goldeneye machine for me.  Such good times playing 4 player death matches on a 19" tv in a tiny smoke filled apartment drinking cases of Natty Ice.  So fun, I can taste it now.
