So many over the years :). NES classics (Life Force, Rygar, Zelda, Mario series...), SNES (SimCity, Actraiser, Super Metroid, F-Zero...), Braid, Super Meat Boy, Doom, Myst, X-COM, Monkey Island, and many more...
Just to meet & talk shop with some fellow game devs - I've been into it for quite some time, but my friends are not big gamers or game devs, so most of my collaboration & relating with game stuff has been online.
Been a programmer/software engineer my whole working life (mostly business apps & web development) so that's probably my strongest suit. I do a bit of everything though in the game realm - 2d & 3d art, sound & music design, gameplay design etc.
Hey - have noticed this group a few times in the meetup list, been meaning to make the trek up from Santa Cruz. I've been doing game development for a couple years now, 2D & 3D, mostly using the XNA framework.
