the Summoning by SSI...

2 3.5" floppies contained enough game to keep me going for several months...I still love the game, if only I could find it again...

do you remember when they acually cared how big they made the games?

Now it's hmmm...let's not optimize the game, let's just add another 300MB

Hey Pal, did you play the game Adventure on the Atari 2600? Now that game was cool!! It had tons of secret places! With todays standards.........the graphics were 2D lines! ;) However, the game kicks a$$!!!

I had an Atari ST520 that had loads of games. Games like R-Type, Double Dragon, Xenon, Eliminator, Outrun, Gods... all good :D


There's legendary game I almost forgot for PC (and Sega as well if I recall), Star Control! I spent many a Systems Info class playing that one with my buddies :cool:

Adventure was awesome. The 'Hero' was a happy face:) with a bow-and-arrow. LOL

Nope, never owned it. I'll dig up the old emulator and see what it's like though. :)

Battletoads in Battlemaniacs for SNES. That game was SO hard, it took me about 3 months to complete the third level, 2 more for level four, and about 2 extra months to finish the game!

I loved the fact that it was one of those games I couldn't beat within two days, that's why I bought it instead of rent it :D

I've played mostly Contra (NES) for my first video game and liked it a lot. There are some games that I really like but didn't manage to finish playing it:(

My last game system was the Sega 16 bit...
now it's all PC games from now onwards..

DIABLO (the first one - still the best in my opinion)

NHL 2000 (still much better - more information about players)


I STILL can't stop playing these two!
