Sunday fun - Favorite OLD TIMEY game
show user profile  HappyDude2
Well it's Sunday night, which means back to the grind for most of you tomorrow (ok, holiday Monday for Canadians, and some of us worked all weekend...)

So I thought why not have a fun little thread about your favorite old timey computer game (ya, makes sense to me!) :)
So post up your all time (ol, oldie time) favorites!

Me first:

My all time favorite game (including all old timey AND all current games of all time) is:
Hero's Quest: So you want to be a hero?
by Sierra On-Line
Released circa 1989 and supported Hercules monochrome, all the way up to 16 blazing colours in EGA mode.

Typical Sierra typing interface (you had to type in what you wanted the character to do, eg: "talk to sheriff", "pick up rock", "throw rocks at bird" or "drink dragons breath... KABOOM!!!" haha classic!
You start out as a traveling stranger, with aspirations of becoming a professional hero, and have to work your way up the ladder to reach this goal.

The plot and characters have a lot of depth and backgrounds (subsequent "Hero's Quest" games in the series actually go further into various character backgrounds).

I have MANY fond memories of this game, and it still to this day pops into my mind when faced with a challenge... "before go up onto the roof of this building, or rappel down this cliff should I save my game incase I screw up and need to restore? Oh wait... this is real life and I can't do that... yet..." haha Classic!

This game had a huge impact on me, it was brilliant, and easily Sierra's greatest creation.

P.S... don't drink the Dragon's Breath :o)

Is this only limited to computer games?
If it is then by far (with out to much compition) Roller Coaster Tycoon.

I don't play computer games that much but boy when i did i was addicted to that game.

EDIT: Okay so if your not talking about just computer games then for console games it would come down to:

Everyone likes it sugarcoated, but that doesn't make it the best way to take it.

Let's say computer / video / electronic games.
There are so many outdoor games I loved as a kid it would need a thread of it's own :o)

or maybe comander keen

But my all time favorite old video game, though not as old as them, would have to be battle zone which was my very first true 3d game!

If you like your retro games try Abandonia.

For my Lucas Arts games I use the scvumm ( SP?) emulator so I dont need to fire up the dinosaur.

Finished Full Throttle in a day, it took me weeks originally and I never finished it back then. :(
