    what was the first game you couldn't stop playing?

    Lemmings on an Amiga 3500(?)

    I was on this thing for days!....eventually, my body gave up and I had to sleep...but I had really F$%!ed up nightmares with lemmings that night.

    Lemming nightmares LOL

    Hmm... lets see. I guess I didn't really get fully addicted to a game until Settlers on PC. I couldn't stop playing it!! Funny thing is, I only ever had the demo, which only gave you half hours worth of gameplay if that.

    Soon after came Transport Tycoon. I spent years playing that. Not so much by choice, rather the old 3x86 was sooo slow, it took forever for the game to advance and finally reach the finishing year. I played it again recently on my Tbird 800 and finished it in a few days

    Mike Tyson's Punchout (later released as just "Punchout" after Tyson's rape conviction lol) on NES. It took me forever to figure out how to beat King Hippo and even longer to beat the last two bosses. I've never been addicted to any PC game except maybe Return to Castle Wolfenstein. Consoles have always held more allure, but that's beginning to change now...

    LOL I definately remember Punchout Wraithchild! But, the very first game that got me hooked on the computer was the old D&D Gold Box Pool Of Radiance! I loved that game! I liked the turn-based combat and the different weapons and armor you could get. Although it only has CGA graphics, I thought it was the best out there at that time!

    Unfortunately, IMO , the new Pool Of Radiance doesn't even come close to the original.

    Arrow Descent all the Way!

    I played Descent I and II online for 6-7 years in a row. That game was ****ing addicting. Too bad it died out. =(

    HeHeHehe....the olden goodies. I still have clear visions of these two games that realy captured me :

    1. BattleTech : The Crecent Hawks Enception - a turn based game that envolved the Mech and Mechwarrior Universe. PLayed that thing for hours.

    2. The ever so painfull in the bud at times was Zeliard. Played that game about for 3 months straight to finish it. Stll wish there could be a remake or perhaps a sequal caue the end of the game it realy didn't seem quite over.

    I played both these games on my old XT with just 2x720 Floppy drives and a monochrome screen. .... I know ouch. No HDD.

    Ping Pong on a IBM PC Jr w/128K ram. That little white dot would fly with processor running @ 4.7 mhz! On the coin games I used to like Tron, Ms Pac-Man, Street Fighter. Now its UT online and Medal of Honor AA offline.

    Quake Team Fortress

    It was a great game with all the shadows to hide in. The new TF mods suck with maps completely lit
