    OK another old Fav, Streetfighter and Mortal Kombat, yes I was (and still am) a fighting game junkie. Nothing better to play with a friend.

    don't forget the short but glorious era of wire-frame games...

    I owned at
    BattleZone and
    Red Barron....

    and the odd laserdisk age
    SpaceAce
    Dragon's Lair

    I sucked at them but loved watching them..

    You can't say that and not mention ELITE!

    "Welcome Commander Jameson" :D

    Wire frame space combat / trading on A BBC Micro. In 1984.

    I doubt Privateer would have been made if it wasn't for this game...

    http://www.iancgbell.clara.net/elite/

    Go on - download it! the site has all the varied versions of Elite that came out, and it's all freeware now.

    Yet again, I've been reminded of other greats I loved:

    Slicks and slide - Proof that a game doesn't need to be complex to be BRILLIANT fun, especially 2 player!

    Anything id or apogee did in the platform games... Commander keen, crystal caves, cosmo's cosmic adventure (go on, call me sad), hocus pocus....didn't really get into duke nukem though.

    Wacky Wheels! Brilliant fun, again a great 2 player game.

    Raptor. Tyrian 2. Superb.

    Death Rally.... anyone remember that? kinda like slicks and slide in a way, but far more advanced. Not as much fun though...

    Ahhh...the days of great shareware. Sadly gone.... :waah: :waah: :waah: :wallbash:

    And a couple more:

    Tie Fighter. The best of the star wars games imo, also with the Tie Defender expansion pack. Xwing vs Tie Fighter and the Rebel Assault series just weren't as good...

    Dune 2 - Battle for Arrakis . The only RTS I ever got into. Never liked C&C, RA, Warcraft, Starcraft....Dune 2 was teh 0wnage.

    Tie fighter was the best of the series.

    There's a reason for that though - You get to play the bad guys! Good may triumph over evil, but evil has more fun.....

    It was great that it was difficult - go head to head against an X-Wing in a Tie fighter that has no defelctors and only minimal armour and coming out as the winner = :hip:

    And Tie Interceptors :rock:

    Ah the good ole days of gaming. I always liked the adventured games myself. Monkey Island, King's Quest, Space Quest, and the Leisure Suit Larry series we my favs. The entire Zelda series and the Final Fantasy series up to 7 was good to. Doom and Doom 2 stayed on my PC for a LONG time. Now waiting on Doom 3!!!!! :D:D:D:D:D

    hmmm, thought Underdogs may have it but apparently it's still available to buy (ie, not abandonware) - unless you can find somewhere else to d/l it from (not that I'm suggesting you do ;) )

    hehe, I forget about that! loved that game, sooo simple but so addictive.

    You remember Nibbles too? Was the other game that came with BASIC, basically the same as the Snake game on Nokia mobile phones.

    I remember playing those two on our old 8086 (640k RAM, 12MB HDD, Hercules 64K Graphics card (4 shades of green) - Great fun!)
