View Full Version : The Rare Games thread

04-04-2002, 03:55 PM
The object of this thread is to tell about games you own that you don't think anyone else has ever played or heard of. You must have used the original CD or floppies (no warez/abandoneware stuff) to play it, and discuss the game if people are interested about it. Consoles and Game Boy/Gear games are also allowed.

Ok, i'll go first.

Descent (PC) FPS Action/Arcade
Descent II (PC) FPS Action/Arcade
Eradicator (PC) FPS
Deadlock II (PC) Turn-Based Strategy
Hybrid Heaven (N64) RPG Fighter
Armorines (N64) FPS

I reread the first post, so I'm gonna redo my post now:

Star Wars Pit Droids
(a puzzle game trying to get the pit droids to go to a hole, around obastacles, etc.)

Ok.. Here's a question.. Is Descent a spacey type game where you drive around and collect blue electric balls?

In Descent to pilot a one man starship thing, but you see through first person objective. You are sent to a mining colony because all the mining drones (droids) have turned against all the workers. It was a completely 3d map, you could go anywhere on an x,y, or z axis. pretty cool for it's time. You collect weapon upgrades and such etc... I believe that there were blue canisters for weapon upgrades, but it's been a long time.

04-04-2002, 05:29 PM
Cool, I think I've played it then.. But in other news, all the games I have are popular.

04-04-2002, 05:37 PM
a few others:

Turok: Dinosaur Hunter (N64) FPS
Turok 2: Seeds of Evil (N64) FPS
Turok: Rage Wars (N64) FPS
Turok 3: Shadow of Oblivion (N64) FPS

Carnivores 2 (PC) FPS hunter

Anyone played Prince of Persia 1

I played Prince of Persia, and Descent II too!

If console games would be allowed, I'd say Bubble Bobbles...On the PC side, the oldest game I can remember is Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis...

04-04-2002, 10:27 PM

What a incredible game! I never beat it, but I got decently far. Best Action game of its type! It had a incredible plot, too!

04-04-2002, 10:41 PM
I've seen Prince of Persia, Star Wars: Pit Droids, and the Turok games.

Descent is a really cool game. Its pretty hard, though. My cousins have the trial version. You fly/drive around a 3D maze, fighting enemies and bosses, and collecting power-ups. Its a rather pulse-pounding game.

Btw, has anyone heard of The Rise and Rule of Ancient Empires? I played it for a while, and it could have been an AWESOME game, but for a couple of big flaws.

Fate of Atlantis is a QUALITY game, nothing like an old fashioned, low requirement, good story, adventure game....

wasnt there another indiana jones game before that :confused:

04-04-2002, 11:54 PM
Tecmo Super Bowl (SNES)
Jurassic Park (SNES)
Mario Paint (SNES)

04-05-2002, 12:04 AM
Indiana Jones: Fate of Atlantis was a great game, and there was an older Indiana Jones game but I haven't ever played it.

04-07-2002, 06:20 PM
Hey Compa, you played Techmo Super Bowl? That game rocks! I play it on my cousins NES. I wish they would make some PC games like that. The setup of most football games nowadays is too complicated. They should make some college football ones, too.

04-07-2002, 09:32 PM
I'm proud to say that I beat Jurassic Park for snes!!!! It took me around 4+ hours to do so...but I beat it!!!! Sucky ending tho and they didn't save my high score!!!

04-07-2002, 09:35 PM
Also, anyone play Droid Works? that game is pretty fun until you beat it unless you want to go through the levels again with some more droids (no point in it tho...).

I had mario paint. Loved that fly swatting...i've made it to the 3rd or 4th boss in that. VERY hard. hehehe

I've played the Descent series, though its been a long, long time. I've also played Prince of Persia, and the first Turok.

I also have Bubble Bobble for the Gameboy, interesting game.

Here's a few of my old GameBoy and PC games i can remember:


Tennis - Thats right, the original tennis game. To my knowledge, this was the first tennis game ever made, but i could be wrong.

Solar Striker - This game was so much fun. It was a top down flying arcade game. I was so mad when it broke a while ago.

World Cup Soccer - a very good arcade style soccer game for its time.


The Oregon Trail - I'm not sure exactly how popular this game was, but it was pretty fun.

Harrier - I remember playing this game on my good ole 33mhz orange-screened portable. A very early side scrolling flight game. It was on one of those gigantic floppy disks that came before diskettes and CDs.

Scorched Earth - A freeware game that was fairly popular as far as i know so you might have played it. Bascially the predesessor to Worms, but with tanks. VERY fun.

Super Gameboy



Tons of them.... NIGHTDAWN I suppose.



None that I know of. :confused:



Indiana Jones


Atari 7200

Jedi Arena

No clue what's rare and what's not.

here are some that are worthy of playing...

Warwind I and II. excellent strategy games from back then.

Planet's Edge: good adventure game involving taking your ship to many planets and being able to upgrade your ship/weapons/suits...

Legendary Wings - good one or two player game similar to
WWII but you are angels, not planes

Adventure of Link: is this game rare. it is the best of the zelda games i have ever played...

04-09-2002, 03:03 PM

I remember older kids playing Oregon Trail when I was little. It supposedly got really hard when you got along into the game.

All Sid Meier games rock, btw.

04-12-2002, 09:07 PM
Sim Copter....man that game was fun, being able to make a city in sim city 2000 and importing it into simcopter to go walk around and grunt at the sims....and being able to make your own radio station to listen to...

04-12-2002, 10:05 PM
LEGO RACERS: my bro brought this and it is adicting, you just have to clock it once you start playing it and find all the secret passages

AFRICAN SAFARI: this is a cool game but not enough animals and guns in it to choose from, it is funny seeing a elephant charge towards you then kill your guy:)

CARNIVOURS (sp?): someone already mentioned this but this game is awesome and really scary when the velociraptors circle you

04-12-2002, 10:09 PM
ya, i have Carnivores 2...the other day i was playing it, and i killed 2 raptors, and went to go for the chasmasaurus....a spinosaurus came running up behind me i screamed out loud, i was like NOOOO!!!!! MY TROPHIES!!!!!!!!! I lost them, cause the spinosaur ate me....i then got revenge, and killed TWO spinosaurs in 1 game. hehe

04-13-2002, 12:38 AM

Jazz Jackrabbit 2


04-13-2002, 12:45 AM
I played Tyrian before, it's that overhead shooter, right? the music in that is so cool...

04-13-2002, 12:49 AM
Yeah, that's it. You could buy upgrades for your ship like weapons, shield, armor ect. I still like to play it! It was WAY ahead of its time.
