    As the title says, what's ur fav classic on ANYthing... From Commodore to PC which still isn't matched today...

    I find that star wars TIE FIGHTER on old MSDOS was the best game in HISTORY... Nothing I've played even comes CLOSE to it... OMG the memories... I was soo young but it's great! It needs a serious remake!!! :drool:

    Colonial Conquest (v1.1) for the ST (and current st emulators). It is the only game that I keep playing 16 years after I first got it. (released 1987) Never one game managed to think it can replace it from the top of my list.

    UMS, Starflight, Sensible Soccer, Ambermoon, Ascenancy, Carrier Command, Gunship, North and South (Infogrames), M1A1 Tank Platoon, Silent Service, Panzer General, XCom, Battlehawks 1942, Plutos, Test Drive the list goes on.

    Oldest would have to be Dark Castle for my dads MacSE. I loved that game :lol:

    Newer than that though and I would say Mario on NES. Played that game allot, and of course duck hunt :D

    consoles would be earthbound on the snes
    pc would be day of the tentacle (sequel to maniac mansion)
    multiplayer would be terris, an old MUD I played.

    All three of those categories change if we were to consider the current generation of games, but this is an ancient game topic

    NES: River city ransom
    SNES and PS: Ogre Battle: the march of the black queen
    PC: Dungeon Keeper

    Those are some of the best games ever made.

    There used be a game for NES called Sweet Home that was released by Capcom. It was one of the first(if not the very first) Survival Horror games ever released. It was so cool that I had a notebook full of drawings I had done about it(I was in First Grade :p ). Does anyone remember Bionic Commando? Or Warzard? Those were all great Capcom games...the memories...*sniff

    Then there were games like Star Control 2, Master of Orion, and Zork(any release) for PC. God, games used to have so much more to offer than they do now...graphics don't mean sh*t, it's all about the gameplay! :)
