Not a game I ever heard of, to be honest. I googled it and never had any of the systems it was on, so that's probably why


It was available on a few platforms and pc i believe.

For us, ColecoVision followed Sears Telegames (Atari 2600 clone) and was followed by NES.

And on and on.

While thinking of what to put in your thread I realized that I've spend too much of my life in video games! I'm not regretful, it's just worth mentioning. So, by era:

-Asteroids
-Super Mario 3
-007 Goldeneye
-Mortal Kombat 2
-Final Fantasy 7
-Final Fantasy 8
-Everquest
-TES Morrowind
-TES Oblivion
-TES Skyrim
-Dragon Age Inquisition

Yea...it's that bad. Good thread though!

You and me both (and I'm sure plenty of other people lol)



So, by era:

-Asteroids
I was wondering when someone would put this one up
Was one hell of a frustrating game as a kid lol.


-Super Mario 3
-007 Goldeneye
-Mortal Kombat 2
-Final Fantasy 7
Played all of them



-Final Fantasy 8
I stopped at 7. I got into flight sims after that.


-Everquest
Never played it, but know loads of people who did. I also know people that spent £100s on eBay for upgrades, weapons, armour etc. Sounded very addictive lol.


-TES Morrowind
-TES Oblivion
-TES Skyrim
I wouldn't call these "old", but yeah, played them too lol.


-Dragon Age Inquisition
I haven't played any of the Dragon Age games. I might give that a try though.


Yea...it's that bad. Good thread though!

I wouldn't call it "bad". It's not like out listed 1000 games like I'm sure some of us could, if we were honest lol.

Thanks for the praise

III killed it for me as well. Nothing like I & II. Points and numbers flashing around...totally killed the vibe of it.


Commodore 64, soo many game for it. Does anyone remember cutting out the tabs on the floppy disk to copy games? My friend and I would copy so many games doing it. We must have had 300 plus games. All kinds of stuff, even sex games.

I didn't even know the Atari at one time you could download games from a phone line but the service did not last long for some reason. Not sure why it did not catch on.

Super Metroid. I used to play it at my cousins it took us months to get through it the first time. It was one of those few games that actually freaked me out as a kid. I really like the feeling being lost and alone in the depths of a creepy alien planet.

I'll still play old side-scrolling Sonic games (my daughter is a second-generation Sonic fan, totally my fault). I also love the original top-down GTA games. Hmm... I was a huge Dreamcast fan so I love Shenmue and Sonic Adventure, of course.

So many others... Road Rash for Genesis, Rock n' Roll Racing (seriously one of the most fun gaming experiences I've ever had), and even some weird ones like Stinger:



Something about that one does something funny to me... I don't get it. It's like a special atmosphere it creates (like Robocop or Gangs of New York).

Hmm... oh! And Shining in the Darkness (and the sequels).

The one , the original Wasteland
An never will there be a more fun game. Never


Who can forget the old text based games?

That, in my opinion, is a classic.

Wasteland had graphics. 8 bit poke and peek and not too bad for the time.
"Angela Death rips a clip and turns Goliath into ground round"
Classic

Yes, similar to that. My brother had it on Atari but I played the arcade game and it was absolutely addictive. I've been looking for an arcade Centipede for years, but so far no joy. One day though...

Havn't played it in years. Felt so clunky to me but maybe I could give it ago.

Funny coincidence. I made a video of my old SK Pking to the song (Metallica not DH) in your sig!

Zork

The first Castle Wolfeinstien.



I can't say I've played either of them.

Maybe it's time for me to download an emulator


Zork was text based adventuring. Try not to get eaten by a grue!

Castle Wolfenstein was one of the first FPS games:



Another of my favorite old games, I used to play on a IBM PC Jr. It was called Rogue:
