Back to using my feet, bicycle and the bus.
This takes me back, Alley Cat was one of the first games I ever played on a PC :) The two other games were Donkey Kong and World Tour Golf.

Damn I feel old! All of those three games are over 20 years old :lol: And Donkey Kong tops at a respectable 25 years of age...just one year younger than me :p

And boy, that Commander Keen series was loads of fun, we even used to play them at school :angel:

Nintendo.
I still have it in it's box, with 3broken controllers and one fully functional. :)
First game on PC? Lemmings. I allso remember when MicroMachines was the shit. Quake 1 was cool... ugh. :(
I allso had a Commodore64. Games on casettes... hmm that's something the 90's kids can never believe. I had a book for it that had long LONG lines of code in it. Type them, write "run" at the end and hit Run-key and afreaking game would start Wohoah... cool. Ofcourse you had to spend an entire day typing the code in but still. :)

Time flies...

How many of you remember or even heard of this game/Grand Prix Legends physics testbed?

This may have been the game that help spark my love of racing simulators. Ah, all that time spent in the track editor. Ah, memories. If you come across a copy, I recommend you pick one up. Actually, I've just reinstalled it on my computer...

I miss the days when games actually came with decent manuals, instead of the leaflets they give you now that just cover the basics.

If that, now it usually is some half-as'ed pdf on the disc.

There is this one RPG I'm trying to remember the name of. All that I remember is that you started in a junkyard, and when you put the ladder in your pocket, it said ouch. Anybody have any clue what I'm on about? I played it on my 486.

It figures this thread would come along right after I go through, and then store away a bunch of my toys from yesteryear. Guess I have to drag them back out now.
