Do you still play old games? The're still good. I have a friend who only gets games for their graphics but I prefer games that are FUN to play. What about you?

Yeah, I love my old games.. Genesis, Atari 2600, colecovision, Saturn... heck, many of them I bought recently, they're old, but still good!

I love old arcades too, every chance I get to play them I do.

You are a chef, and your objective is to make hamburgers by running across the contents while being chased by hot dogs, pickles, eggs, and tomatoes. You can temporarily stun them by shaking pepper on them. But the object of each level is to finish making the hamburgers before they catch you.

I got an old Vectrex system back in the mid 90's from a friend of my parents. I remember spending many happy hours playing many classic early 1980's Vectrex games like Scramble!, Armor Attack, Minestorm, (Asteriods clone, but better) and Clean Sweep. (Pac-Man clone) Unfortunately, I can't play it anymore since the control pad has gotten so unresponsive that it's a chore to play anything. I'll always have the fond memories...:p

Well, unless the Gamecube version of Ocarina of Time counts. (A game which kicks incredible amounts of ass, by the way ^_~)

You officially rock, Red man ^_~ I loved that game sooo much, and I so wanted them to make a sequel for the GC based on the same look/feel of that game, it was amazing n_n; Best RPG I ever played. Other RPGs I still play are Final Fantasy 8/10 and Harvest Moon: Back To Nature for Playstation (that game is sooo fun...never spent so much of my time playing a game before, ever ^^;).

A year or so ago, I lost Sonic 3 (my favourite Sonic game of them all x_x), and couldn't find it anywhere. So, I went out and shelled out loadsa cash on The Sonic And Knuckles Collection, with both Sonic and Knuckles and Sonic 3. I dunno what it was, it just didn't have the same feel that the Mega-Drive/Genesis version of the game did. It's now collecting dust on my shelf...*sniffle* ;_;

What platform was that for ?, i think they released it for the DC, but now i think they've released a Sonic Collection for the GC, not to sure about that though, but IMO they need to stay on the Megadrive because thats were they belong :)

I still play...the original...the masterpiece...Final Fantasy. I'm talking you get 4 members with 4 digit names like Luke or something. Fighter, Thief, Black Belt, Red Mage, White Mage, and Black Mage. The game is great, what can I say? Made by Squaresoft back when they were just Square Entertainment. And to think, Dragon Warrior was supposed to be the big game! AHHHH HAHAHAHAHAHAHA...I'm done.

Burgertime was the bomb.

Its not that old, but I just broke out Final fantasy VII for old times sake.

This thread makes me wish I had a copy of Blades of Steel.
But I guess I'll settle for Streets of Rage 2, which, by the way, is also the bomb.

I've never owned an old console, but over the years there are very few games I've discarded for the PC over the years. I still have a few of the older games that I first played on PC...

Wolfenstein 3D
Eye Of The Beholder 1, 2 and 3
Lands Of Lore
Betrayal At Krondor
Ultima Underworld
Monkey Island 2 (can't play it because half the mojo wheel thing is missing)
Dark Forces
Doom 1, 2 and Final Doom
Heretic
Hexen
Take No Prisoners
Blade Runner

I've got some old copies of Pac Man, Space Invaders, Lemmings, Prince Of Persia and some others as well, somewhere.

I'm actually playing through Hexen II again right now - because I can't remember completing it. For Hexen, Heretic and Doom I use the engine mods for those games...Doom Legacy or JDoom, for example.

The bottom line is...I still fire up these games now and then, because they are still good games to play even today.

Lemmings 2: The Tribes, I got for Amiga way back. Fantastic title, so enjoyable to play, it makes me wanna dig up the system again ^^ I also remember playing games like Operation Stealth and Trolls on the Amiga. Good times =]

Also, I know it's not that old, but I think Grim Fandango is worth a mention. Best graphic adventure. Ever. And only Lucasarts could come up with something like that:DIf you haven't played it, do at some point, it's well worth a look;)

I LOVE Old Games, I'm an avid fan of the Dark Forces Mod, and recently purchased the Sonic Mega Collection for the Game Cube, and I have the Sonic and Knuckles Collection on PC, (I had it on Mega Drive but sold it :()

I have countless ROMS and Emulators for all the great Systems.

I am going to reinstall Lemmings in a couple of days.

I have every Star Wars game for the PC aswell, and I still play them.

The game I haven't been able to get hold of though and play again is Sonic CD I was gutted when it wasn't on the Mega Collection :(.

Oh and I have bought the Microsoft Return and Revenge of Arcade Software packs.

I love nostalgia, I am the most nostalgic person I know.

I also love loads of old music and films (anyone heard of the original Star Wars trilogy.)

Yeah thats true, do you know that if you have a computer with a processor over 1000 mhz, it plays super fast? So I can't play it anymore

The Game Cube version though is pretty addictive.

For Lemmings 2, how about getting a decent Snes Emulator which supports mouse control and use a ROM for that.

I got Lemmings for Windows 95 and Oh No More Lemmings, great games!

I also had the original MSDOS version aswell, that was cool.

I have emulators for snes, genesis, sega cd, 32X,nes, gameboy, all the old ones and the classics.
I just recently found my old 32x and was pissed that I was missing a crucial cord. So I found an emulator, and the roms of all the ggood ones(AKA Knuckles chaotix)
My all time favorite old games are...
Mario 3-NES
Sonic 3-Genesis
Sonic and Knuckles-Genesis
Sonic Spinball-Genesis
Kirby-NES

Emulators ARE legal, as are ROMS, but as long long as you own the original copy of the game. If you don't own it you are not supposed to keep the game longer than 24 hours on your HD. So better be careful about what you post, you don't want trouble, dou you?:p

Nah, thats bull****. Read the Video Game Manuals. You may not copy this, even if you own the game. Therefore, roms and emulators are Illegal. Lets not go off topic, start a flame war, and get this thread closed now. ;)

08-22-2003, 03:34 AM
The emulators are not illegal. But the roms for them are.

That said, I still bust out the old-school games every once in awhile. I've got emulators for NES, SNES, Genesis, and Atari and just about every worthwhile game for each system.

As far as the PC goes, I still bust out the old TIE Fighter, X-wing, Dark Forces, DOOM, Duke Nukem 3D, etc.

If you guys want a rare PC classic check out System Shock 2. It's not old old, but it's been long enough for the game to have been forgotten. Probably mainly because its developer, Looking Glass Studios, is out of business. But this is hands down the freakiest damn game I've ever played. Screw stuff like Resident Evil (which really isn't all that freaky despite what people claim), or the Silent Hill series (which actually is a pretty good contender). System Shock 2 is by far the best thriller I've ever played.

You wake up on this ship and you have no clue what's going on. The ship was supposed to be a test vessel for faster-than-light speeds. Apparently you volunteered for some experimental and highly illegal cybernetic surgery as some last-ditch effort to save the ship from whatever unfortunate fate has befallen it. The only problem is that the memory restoration in the medical tank you're in failed just as it was restoring the past two or so weeks of your memory. Thus your cluelessness as to what's befallen the ship. All you know is that there's blood, and dead bodies all over the place. A few poeple have hung themselves. You find one body sitting against the wall with a shotgun sitting upright in his lap. It leans against his chest and the barrel is pointed upwards. Where his head used to be is just a bunch of buckshot and a blood spatter on the wall. If you find anyone alive, you find them just getting killed.

But out of all the thriller-survivor games out there, this one does the best job of making you feel tiny, insignificant, and alone. There's no mega killing weapon that you can pick up near the end of the game. You never get that invincible feeling. You do have a mysterious ally to help you out over a comlink for about half the game. But you never meet anyone in person that's alive. You just find old logs and e-mails of doomed people talking about things they've seen, or things they'd planned to do to fight for their lives (clues for you to finish what they'd started if you want to live, because they're too dead to do it now). Its a pain in the ass to find enough ammo so you're left conserving your shots and shooting straight and accurate. And crap jumps out at you from no-where. Even worse, the enemies have the capability to open the doors on their own, and if you decide to run instead of fighting, they'll chase you down. The only way to escape them without killing them is to go up to the next deck. See, the game isn't divided by individual levels. You're on one ship, divided up by it's different decks. Engineering, Medical, Hydroponics, Command Deck, Recreational Deck, etc. You have to go back and forth to accomplish various tasks. And the enemies have free roam of each deck.

But what puts you on edge so much is the fact that you can hear them in the next room, or above you, or below you. You don't know where it's at. You just hear ominous footsteps, and a creepy inhuman voice that says things like "Your flesh betrays you!" "You cannot hide forever! We seek! We find!" They hunt your ass down, and you'd better have the ammo to take it on. You'd better find it, before it finds you or else you won't see it coming.

Yes, good stuff. Good stuff.

I use to have a Matel Intelevision game with several games and those replacable key pad templates which display what keys worked for different games, I also had an old Atari box thing. Mario and Mario 2 whatever they were called. Some computer geek wanted them a few years ago, so I sold them, I have no idea what they are or were worth. an Atari with 2 games, and a Matel Intelevision with 9 games something like that. old dusty and looking well old. he gave me $125.00 for them. and since they had no value for me and I was eventually going to sell them for nothing at a garage sale, I said okay. they were neat to play and bring back certain found memories of childhood and all, but I like playing the games they make now a days much more.
