I'm an old fart, so my childhood games are well before '99 (I was already married in '99).
But when I *was* a kid, I REALLY liked Dragon's Lair, even though I sucked at it. I was a sucker for animation as a kid (still am), and Don Bluth animation especially. So even though it kinda sucked gamewise (it was QTE before QTE was a thing), I have fond memories of beating it. And it only cost me a few months of lunch money! (Years later I beat Dragon's Lair II: Timewarp, and lost another swath of lunch money in the process.)
In fact, now that I think about it, it's somewhat ironic that I'm so against game companies nickling and diming me for DLC, when I used to literally dump quarters for the privilege of playing 5-10 minutes of a game at an arcade. I forget how spoiled I've gotten, literally owning the games that I used to have to visit at a special building for games.
