Gauntlet Legends/Dark Legacy, or Ratchet and Clank, most likely. Unfortunately, as a kid, our Super Nintendo was actually on its last legs when I was able to play it. So, any save I made of Link to the Past or Super Mario World would just get deleted when the system powered off. =(

Ooh! I forgot about Zombies Ate My Neighbors. That game was fantastic(ally hard)

The earlier NES titles are the ones that'd do it for me.

I'm thinking of games like Ice Climbers or Clu-Clu Land or Sqoon, or of course the very first Super Mario. 

The simple yet fun gameplay, and the stark, crisp graphics with bright colors.... yeah, those'll do it to me.

Also, basically anything on the 2600.  I've always loved that thing.

Me too. Especially Joust or Pitfall.

Joust and Wizard of Wor.... And thus began an addiction...

Opened your save. My computer wept. Switched to the ST planet and ship icons filled my screen, so I zoomed out. Game told me that it _was_ totally zoomed out. You could seriously walk from one end of the inner grav well to the other without getting your feet cold.

Let me just chime in, for me, there’s a number of games such as:

Super Mario Kart
Tetris
Super Mario World
Sonic 1
Top Gear 1

Just to name a few.

In all likelihood? The Legend Of Zelda II - The Adventure Of Link - on the NES naturally ;).

Something like Bubble Bobble, Hades Nebula, Rock 'n Roll, Ghostbusters or another classic from that time (mid-late 80s).

Mission XX
I ran into it as an arcade cabinet my church owned (the youth then proceeded to break it, along with a table-version of asteroids).

Wild Arms, Link's Awakening, Terranigma, Breath of Fire II.

Probably some others that I just don't recall right now.

I used to play Cadash with a friend in high school. That'd probably do it.

I guess the most important factor is the music. If the music is sad, I can sense that even though I am playing games happily at that time, I will become nostalgic suddenly.

Probably Last Mission on the C64. I played that to death. Or Moonstone on the Amiga 500. Yeah, I'll say Moonstone. I loved that game to death.
