    I cannot believe Starflight (1986) was only mentioned once. Could have something to due with the age of the posters since the not all, but most the games posted aren't even 10 years old.

    Also surprised there are not more Ultima fans. Tied at#2 on my all time classics list are both RPG's, Wasteland (1989) the predecessor to fallout and Ultima Underworld: The Stygian Abyss (1992).

    well, having had machines from the vic 20 to my current machine and consoles...I must say that the first game that REALLY took my breath away (literally) was the first Resident Evil game on the PS...

    Hmm, I spent a lot of time with a game called Supaplex! I wonder if anyone remembers it! What a sense of exultation when you complete a new level! What a rage when your sister deletes you and you have to start from level 1!

    Jazz Jackrabbit series, tricky side scroller!

    Xeno, lots of blood flew in that one!

    Heretic, kind of a cross between Doom and Quake.

    i was playing it a couple weeks ago :lol:

    that was a great game.

    I miss magic carpet also
    I do still have it, but it's such a pain in the ass to have to crank down cpu gpu etc to get the thing to run at a sensible speed that I don't bother anymore :(

    Tex Murphy: Under A Killing Moon - Oh how I miss it.
    Doom on sega genesis 32X, I must have played that game for years and always scared me, the sounds alone while walking down a corridor with a shotgun and getting that tingling feeling down your spine with the flickering lights and knowing something is going to attack you from somewhere and in force with only a shotgun. Ah... What memories.

    Betrayal at Krondor (1993), no other RPG has compared in my eyes, and since Sierra released it for free, anyone can play it, but unfortunately since Sierra is all but gone, and Vivendi doesn't host it anymore, finding it can be near impossible.
