Definitely Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past. It's a glorious game and with good reason, it plays fantasticly, it's challenging, and most importantly it IS fun to play. The game doesn't expect too much from the player and at the same time it doesn't hold your hand, you know perfectly well that once you get the hang of it you're on your own. The only other game I had a lot of fun playing, or that I believe I had as much fun as I had playing A Link to the Past would be ironically Ocarina of Time. Yeah I know I'm a Zelda die-hard fan, no regrets here.
Earthbound is an awesome game too, but honestly I'm not too fond of the gameplay, it is way too different and while that may not always be a downside it took me a while to get used to it and in the end I didn't enjoy it as much as other I do playing other RPGs. That and you have to grind for EXP way too fucking much and the thought and execution of such just doesn't appeal to me. I do enjoy me some Final Fantasy IV, best Final Fantasy game with best Final Fantasy boss battle, even though the writting could've been a lot better.

Retro-games are those that pertain to a discontinued console, such as the Nintendo Entertainment System, the Nintendo 64, etc. The PC is difficult to categorize, though. Since many products such as CPU's, Video-cards, etc. are in continuous development and evolving into monstrosities it's really tough to just say the PC you used to play those old-school games is discontinued or if you keep using a PC, but with better parts. I'd say it doesn't count because technically that game you used to play ran on a pretty old computer; if you happened to try to run the same game chances are, it would play way too fast it would be unplayable unless you would modify your monitor's color processing (I think that's what it's called?) and change other stuff.
