    Another game on the Comodor 64 was Archon (battlechess type game).

    Or how about one of the original atari games - Tank, spent hours on that one.

    OMG!!! Bomberman!! Used to play that with me mates and brothers and it was absolutely brilliant :) I have to say, the addictiveness of that multiplayer does not come close to CS, Q3 or UT2k3 - Im dead serious
    Also liked 2D scrolling shoot 'em ups that had craploads of enemies to blast your stuff at, something like R-Type, Hellfire or Super Thunderblade with huuuuuuuuuge supers such as a beam that cleared the whole screen with a big flash :D That was mighty satisfying :rock: :D :hehe:

    This talk about side scrolling shooters reminds me of the best top down shooter:

    The Raiden Project. :rock:

    Old arcade game, I probably spent about $1000 playing this in arcades.......

    Also Street Fighter II. The best one. Me and my friends played that until our hands hurt. Me and my one friend played that until our hands were bleeding, split open knuckles, chaffed palms, it was just like actually fighting.....

    *drools uncontrollably*

    commander keen,
    the origional duke nukem, and duke nukem 2 (for the un-initiated, were 2d platformers and mucho fun!!!)
    castle wolfenstien rocked, as did doom doom2 and the origional quake!
    i was also a huge fan of cannon fodder, god that was so addictive!
    and a game called baldies was fun, for around 1/2 a day.

    the ultimate golden oldie game has to be civ. i lost days of my life playing that, and i much prefer it to the likes of civ2, alpha centaurie and civ3 (which was pants imho, but oh well).

    not forgetting the 5minute wonder games like jazz jackrabbit, the earth worm jim series and the ever amazing spinoffs of jizz jackrabbit (ie the xmas version and jackrabbit 2)

    and who can forget lemmings (me, thank god!)

    apogee = teh win!

    ;)

    lol, the very first earthworm jim was absolutely funny! As well as number 2, but it lost it as soon as it went 3D :( But they were good

    tbh, i havent pld civ...I see it for 99p on sale so, i might take a look at it
    oooh and lemmings! Also, i loved beneath a (or the?) steel sky! That lovely point and click action and the plot :) It was great

    The only 2D fighter i play is Marvel vs Capcom on me CPS2 emulator, but that isnt a golden oldie me finx

    I can't believe nobody's mentioned Jet Pac on the Speccy or Attic Attack, Knight Lore or one probably no one else will remember High Rise Harry.

    damn, how did that one escape me?!

    nearly every day of my first year at uni was spent playing 4-player Worm Armageddon on the Dreamcast (we had nearly 100 games for the DC but Worms was rarely removed from the console!!!)

    few others for Nintendo peeps:

    Solar Jetman (NES)
    Snake Rattle 'n Roll (NES)
    Any Super Mario game (NES/SNES)
    Marble Madness (NES)
    Yoshi's Island (SNES)
    F-Zero (SNES)

    sure there's more....

    Ikari Warriors

    and teh one I can't believe no one posted

    One time I came across an arcade version of Castlevania that had the quarter slot broken (where it was always playing) and I played for like 4 hours. Good memories.
