What was your parents fav video games?

Neither of my parents really played much video games at all, my mom would play a few puzzle games and as far as I know My dad only played one video game in his life since have been alive (He has told he played pong when it was popular but I haven't really ever seen him play it before)

But my moms favorite game was Dr. Mario on the NES
My Dads favorite game was Wii Sports (The golf and Bowling games primarily)

I don't know what game was his favourite, but my dad really enjoyed playing Mario 2 and Mario 3 back in the day. I remember he used to play those a lot, both with me and on his own.

He also enjoyed playing Super Mario Kart sometimes and would occasionally play Super Mario World.

Later, he began to really enjoy playing Actua Golf (VR Golf '97). Him and his friend would play it for hours. Actua Golf was as far as my dad would go with games as he always said he didn't really like "3D games", so anything after the PlayStation, he didn't play.

He did actually play quite a lot of other games though. He wasn't one of those parents that would just play one or two games and that's it, but out of all the games he did play, I'd say that probably either Mario 2, Mario 3 or Actua Golf was his favourite game as he played them the most.

As for my mum, she doesn't really play games but I do remember me and her would play Mario 3 together quite a bit when I was a kid.

I'll also add that my grandad loved playing The Legend of Zelda.

It was the only game he played and he would play it pretty much every day at one point. He completed the entire game and this was without guides or the internet, as this was around the mid-nineties.

I remember going up to his room as a kid and just standing next to him and watching him play the game. We still have his save file on the cartridge but I think we're all too scared to play it in case someone accidentally deletes it, so the game and the save file hasn't really been touched since my grandad passed away in 1998.

Mom: None

Dad: Windows Spider Solitaire. Over the years the only "real game" I had ever seen him play seriously was some MLB game we had for PC. 2000 or earlier. It is so long ago and seems so out of character, but I remember him really playing it and it just seems so bizarre.

My mom loves Super Mario Bros 3.

My dad never really played video games, and I'm sure he doesn't now.

My dads favorite game was a racing game called Top Gear for the SNES.

I guess my mom favorite game was Wii Sports.

Ma & Pa never played video games. I think once when I was really young I was playing Duck Hunt on the NES and Dad grabbed the NES pistol and played a couple rounds. That's as much game playing he ever did.

Mom loves Bookworm on her laptop. Then again, it's the only thing she plays since she's rather dumb when it comes to technology.

Gaming with my folks was kinda weird. Mom's experiences were few and far between, and she was more of the "watch YOU play" person, especially when I started getting into RPGs... but the two games that I remember the most with her were vs in NES Pictionary (some of the few times she would suggest she wanted to play someting), and the one day she apparently got a wild hair to go through SNES Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest, and I get home from school in time to watch her going up to the final boss. It is the only game she ever finished that I know of.

Dad, on the other hand, was a different story. He and I would have high-score wars on the 2600. I had a blue binder that we would write scores in (unless it was something like Enduro, where we would measure progress by day number and weather condition). When the NES era came around, he didn't show much interest initially. However, he would eventually get heavy on Black Bass (he likes fishing for real, and the game was apparently a fairly accurate sim, so he would land the big fuckers), Silent Service (he liked the tactical nature) and then he also got into the RPGs I had. To this day, I'm kinda pissed about how he beat Ultima: Exodus before me by skipping a puzzle by luck. And rubbing in that he did so.

SNES/Genesis rolled around, and he wasn't so much into it, but he's the reason why I was able to grasp flight controls (I didn't understand why I was crashing all the time in Jane's F-15) and we rekindled high score battling with Star Fox and Road Rash II in a different blue notebook. Shining in the Darkness was a good time waster, too. You'd think he'd be all about Shining Force, but not so much.

When we got a PC in the mid 90s, he got through Ultima VIII (which was the first time we were introduced to needing to upgrade a PC to run something), Swat 2 (again, liked that tactical nature), and apparently "got so good" at Wing Commander Prophecy that the game glitched (there was a mission that had somehow become impossible to win... he would instafail as soon as he hit the checkpoint to protect a convoy). That wasn't supposed to happen, yet it would occur every time after his first couple of playthroughs (he was going for score on the ingame killboard at this point). We actually had to uninstall AND scrub the partition to fix the problem.

If mom were still around, I'd wager she would have taken to watching let's plays on YouTube, especially of narrative driven titles or watch some tomfoolery happen in Skyrim like force shout ragdolls.

Dad's a toss-up, because he'll either find something like X-Com to throw himself into, a shooter with a high score table, or more than likely not bother at all and go watch a movie.

This answer was way longer than it needed to be, but kinda cathartic.

And if I had to distill everything to a simple answer, I would have to go back to the 2600 version of Space Invaders and/or Missile Command for all three of us. Mom would play those a couple of rounds if dad an I were playing.
