The eighties spawned some excellent games.
Riddle of the Sphinx - BBC Micro (Text adventure!)
Snapper - BBC Micro (Pacman clone)
Megatraveller - Amiga (Brilliant RPG)
Bloodwych - Amiga/PC (I think this was the first first person 3D RPG)
Operation Wolf - Spectrum/Amiga
Wonderboy series - Sega MS
Chucky Egg - Acorn Electron/BBC/Spectrum
Donkey Kong - LCD Game & Watch/BBC Micro
Manic Miner - BBC Micro
Jet Set Willy - Spectrum
Elite - BBC Micro (Colossal game, a masterpiece for it's day)
Duck Hunt - NES (Who could forget?)
R-Type - Amiga (The king of scrollers)
Robocop - Spectrum/Amiga (Digitised speech!!!!)
Castle Quest - BBC Micro (The best platform adventure ever)
Ghouls and Ghosts
Afterburner (Mainly for the machine itself)
These are the most memorable at the moment, but I bet as I read this thread others will jump out too. Anyone else played any of these games?
The late eighties saw the development of 3D games like Hunter (Amiga), forerunners of games like GTA and Mercenaries.
Right, I'm off to find me an Amiga...
