switching to early adulthood without trying to hijack this thread, i'd have to say that street fighter and mortal kombat took many a quarter from me. and once i got out of college, we played mario cart 64 reliiously for years. there was also a relatively unknown sega genisis game in the mid 90's called star control that a friend and me played everyday in melee mode (we played each other instead of doing the actual game).

In the 1970s my father brought home a computer from his company and said: "this thing will take over the world in your lifetime".

And so right he was. It had a chess game but I was too young for that.

In 1983 my brother and I went wild about Wizard Of Wor for the Commodore 64, and this would be my first memorable game. It's fun even now, the graphics are good enough for a shoot-em-up, and its still an addictive game. I've attached it, but you'll need a C64 emulator, I can't get the controls to work properly yet. Now that's 16 kB well spent, unbelievable such a fun game can be so compact!

I can't move properly on several emulators. If you find a way to move in all ways please post which emulator and how. I'd love to blow some afternoons on it like I did in the early 80s!

The first computer game I can remember being hooked on was Zork, but it was text based only.




This Zork you mean?  :naughty:
It works on MS-DOS but again: at your own risk!

In XP I just unzip, click the progam file ZORK, an MS-DOS screen opens and you're all set.

Yep... I wrote an emulator for a class project in college that could run any of the early infocom games.... at the time I was into natural language parsing.

Another great game in the early 1980s was ofcourse Boulder Dash! I've done some websearching for games of old and lo and behold: somebody made a freeware that looks, feels and sounds exactly like the Boulder Dash of old, but runs directly on all windows OS without emulation!

Young'uns, this one is OBLIGATORY! Download the file, unzip and click the icon.

This is what the best of gaming was like some twenty years ago!!

The game has 200 caves as well as an editor which allows you to create your own custom ones to drive your friends nutsy :smile:

This is one of the few games from the ancient years of computing that actually is still playable. Have some mercy: the original was written for a computer with 64 kB of RAM memory, with almost half of it occupied by it's proto-OS.

It has passable graphics and sound and relies on a combination of brainpower and decisiveness.
enjoy!

Zork!

I remember that game. You had to find 10 treasures or something like that. Then you went into the house and down into the basement and you found some secret passage. Then some monster-thing killed me.

Everything is better than it was the last time.  I'm good.

If we could look into each others hearts, and understand the unique challenges each of us faces, I think we would treat each other much more gently, with more love, patience, tolerance, and care.

It takes a lot of courage to go out there and radiate your essence.

I know you scared, you should ask us if we scared too.  If you was there, and we just knew you cared too.

Shit... lemmings.

So many afternoons lost to that game. Near the end it got REALLY freaking hard. It was insanely challenging.
