    I also remember playing Sun Tzu's Ancient Art of War by Broderbound(?) a lot too. Heck I think that might be that game that led to games like C&C, Starcraft and others.

    AlanArpeggio,

    I remember Sopwith, what fun!

    The first game I ever played was Gunship on a Tandy, it was ok. My first game that I really played was Pirates! Wow! I still love that game! The Space Quest series came next; true classics!

    Everyones seen this before, right?

    Oregon Trail and Lemonade were the first games I had played on my Apple IIe. These got me hooked though:

    Archon
    D&D Pool of Radiance
    Loadrunner

    Mechwarrior 2 was the first game I went nuts over for the PC.

    Nascar 1 from Papyrus. Pitiful graphics, but if you like Nascar and had a wheel, extremely fun

    Played King's quest 1 on my 286 and was stunned by the new world. I still remember the king croaking at the end of the game, toppling in all his DOS based pixelated glory...

    Ah, fond memories of days of yore...

    Back in the early 80's, the text adventures from Infocom on my Commodore 64, especially Deadline. They came on 5 1/4 floppies (the drive cost $200 back then!) and took an extremely long time to load new areas. I played one of the games from a compilation on a 386 in ~'90 and was amazed that as soon as I entered a new room, the text was immediately displayed onscreen. Links 386 and Wolfenstein 3D were pretty fun on that same 386.

    ahhh....Bard's Tale 2 for my c64 and I finished it! Didn't finish many games back in those days. And for my first real computer (a 386-16) I played the hell out of this racing game called stunts. I downloaded it from one of those abandonware sites and damn. I don't know how I played it. We have come a longgggggg way. LoL
