My all time favorite games are Zelda and Metroid. I enjoy treasure hunting and puzzle solving more than fighting the bad guys. My two boys and I used to sit and play together for hours. What I wasn't good at they were. I had no patience for fighting and they had no patience for solving riddles. So we would hand off to the one who could solve that part of the game. I so enjoyed spending time with them that way.
My youngest son Glen rented Donkey Kong when it first came out and I was hooked! He bought me a super nintendo for Christmas that year with Donkey Kong Country. Myself and my sons and then later grandsons have all enjoyed playing this together. Jake and I played every time he came and stayed. We played it over almost a year til we finally got to the end. I had already beaten it but it was fun to play with him. He comes one weekend every other month and on holidays.
