    I'm feeling nostalgic this morning.


    Sierra Games were hype:
    Space Quest
    Hero's Quest
    Police Quest (until SWAT came out and ruined the series)
    Leisuresuit Larry

    Civilization
    Pizza Tycoon
    X-Com
    Wolfenstein 3D

    On the BBS, I liked Trade Wars

    Oregon Trail
    Number Munchers
    Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego?


    can anyone think of any others?

    uh, Doom III just came out this year.

    So, yeah, if anyone is going to post, try to make it a game from yesteryear. I feel old enough as it is, so don't go around mentioning Counterstrike or something.

    *oh yeah - Dark Forces was ill.

    DEATHTRACK!!!! THAT IS ONE OF MY FAVOURITE GAMES EVER!

    and one of the best hockey games ever made was Faceoff, from 1988. It had really good fighting in it, and every team had a farm team to send down and call up players from.

    Rise Of The Triad (oh yes. Ludicrious Gibbs!)
    Duke Nuke 'Em (8-Bit versions)
    Scorched Earth (the premise for Worms)
    Roger Wilco (was that Space Quest?)
    Gauntlet (forever classic)
    King's Quest (Hero's Quest?)
    Syndicate (if anyone can find this game for me I'll father your first born)
    Warcraft/Command & Conquer

    Goddamn, anyone else remember those old shareware discs that were around back around '90-'93? They had like the original Duke Nuke 'Ems as well as random clipart..... that shit's oldschool.

    King's Quest and Police Quest were hot. I also enjoyed Family Feud. No, seriously. And Leisure Suit Larry at the friend's house when the parents weren't home.

    also, that racing game where you could build your own tracks with loops and spirals and whatnot. can't remember the name....

    but on a side note... if anyone has the time and patience, you can make your own classic-sierra-style game using the AGS (Adventure Game Studio) found here
    ... if i had the graphics i needed i definitely would do it, but having to draw each scene and item/character would take way too long for me to want to do it.... check it out though

    casek - once again thanks. I'm not going to be billed at the end of the year for all the help you've been doling out lately, am I?



    Was that the one where you were a kid with a pet frog and you had to get out of school, play Super Pretendo, yadda yadda yadda?

    Doom, Duke Nukem and Warcraft were all in the early rotation. Diablo came later and consumed pretty much every minute of my life. My roommates and I actually used to race each other home to play it.

    I'm glad people remember the Sierra games. Yeah, Space Quest was the one with Roger Wilco. I remember the big space mall where you could play that little mini-game with the chicken.

    Hero's Quest was different than King's Quest. KQ was nice, but HQ was where you could join the thieves' guild, and, yes, eat mushrooms in the forest.

    Nice, syndicate! I couldn't ever play that on my shitty 286 back then, but I played the shit out of them at my friend's house.

    I think that any game that used the internal speakers is applicable to this thread.
