Favorite old-school games?

I know we've had plenty of discussions on some of these areas before, but I was curious as to what were the true standout - and perhaps classic, but forgotten, titles on various platforms.

What I propose is people list up to four of their favorite titles on any or all of the following old-school systems:

1980s Arcade Games
NES/SNES
N64
PS1
Dreamcast

or any other "outdated" device.

I'll go first below.

Contra: Hard Corps was definitely a classic on the Genesis... Probably the best Contra game I ever played. The SNES one was good, but Hard Corps had way more feeling to it, it was just a better game.

The Irishman, too, picked the fly out of his drink but then held it out over the beer and yelled "SPIT IT OUT, SPIT IT OUT, YOU BASTARD!"
