Old games (and a few sequels)

That "What was the first game you played" topic made me a wee bit nostalgic, I'm afraid...
My father happens to be the kind of dad that doesn't care about age ratings (especially back then, when you weren't able to cut someone's head off and kick it off a stairs) and even when I was really young, I never saw games as reality.
I only faintly remember this one, most notably the first part of the game where you have to escape the building within 30 seconds or so (which is impossible if you try), and you just hop out of the window. This game was quite advanced in the way you could aim at any part of an enemy's body to destroy it. Shooting a "human" enemy's face would reveal that it is in fact a robot, etc.
Maze of Gallious
Never got far in this game, because it was bloody hard. Play as the white knight or the pink knight and beat @%()@# hard bosses all over the place. Oh that stupid bone dragon/dinosaur... I'd probably have more success now because I was a bit too young back then. (Bad reflexes)
Metal Gear (1)
This one needs no introduction. WAY harder than the Solid games, it's more of a puzzle game than a sneaking game like it is now.
Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake
Same thing, only this one is even harder than the first (imo). I'm actually playing it again just for fun, and it sure is as tough as I remember it being.
Metal Gear Solid 1:
Now we're talking. MGS2 is my favorite but this one's a close second. Only 1 complaint: THAT! STUPID! PSYCHO! MANTIS!
Beat him by: Plugging the controller in slot 2 so he can't read your "mind", shoot the statues if you died once, or die again and he magically loses his ability to read your mind. I might be wrong on my last point as I'm typing from memory.
You know what's funny? I'm playing MGS1:Integral on PC right now (almost finished it again) but because I'm using the keyboard, that silly Mantis couldn't read my "mind" because he tries to read your controller (if any) so TAKE THAT CONSOLE GAMERS! *Evil Laugh*
Metal Gear Solid 2:
My favorite in the series. Kinda sucked that you don't play as Snake all the time, but the tanker mission was great. I won't go into MGS3 and 4, because I did play 3 but never finished it (for no special reason), and never played 4 because I don't have a PS3. *cries*
Zone of the Enders

Great game, I never got to play The 2nd. Runner. =/
Fun game. Play as a small angel and build your own villages, then once you have enough people, you (the main char) enters a dungeon, beats the boss, and permanently frees that part of the world from demon, then you move on to the next part of the world. As you go, you unlock new god powers such as lightning, rain, etc. (Kind of like an ancient Black & White 2)
Lufia Rise of the Sinistrals:
Lufia! A very deep RPG for that time! Feed your own monster items to make him stronger, assemble a party and beat ludicrously hard puzzles, and all with a deep, involving story.
There is a... GBA(?) version of Lufia but let's just say it's not nearly as good as the SNES games.
Zelda: A link to the past
Gosh, I wonder what this is? Nobody here has ever heard of this before!
Well that's it for now. My memory isn't being very cooperative but maybe I'll continue this trip to memory lane some other time.
