Yeah, that was a pretty cool game back in the day.

An old guy I worked with last year actually had me help him get an ancient joystick working on his ancient Windows 95 computer so he could play Lode Runner again. He's easily the oldest PC gamer I've seen. I think he's like 70.

Back when I had the C64 and a tape drive (Floppy disk drive not around yet) I remember playing some very early and dodgy games (but still great fun). Cops and robbers (with that weird ghost level), lunar lander, a bunch of others I can't remember.

Then later the awesome 'Spy vs Spy' man what a great game, and what a great multiplayer game.

But my all time favourite was the amazing 'Paradroid' by Andrew Braybook first on the Commodore 64 then later on the Amiga 500 with updated graphics and slightly different gameplay. That game could be played in so many different ways I spent hours on that thing, great times.

Wonder Boy II... Man I loved that game. I'd be given two quarters from my dad to spend on the arcade, WB2 needed like a couple of hours to finish! Compare that to other games that took 5-10 minutes for you to loose because of difficulty...

The best gaming experience i had with C64 and Amiga and later with early PC games on my K5 platform such as Doom 2, Quake 1 and Quake 2, NFS1 and 2, oh my those were days and not to forget Aliens vs Predator 2 . Also had a lot of fun with original Playstation.

well i find this representing the new era



and these






and i guess it is the way it will be.

any of you think that sim bin should try a new engine to their next game when ever it is?

or do they need better graphics? I kinda find them good as they are

Stealth fighter C64 man did i paly it and loading times on that tape unit i think i made major or so.

and kombat school i don´t remember how many joysticks, and then came snes and so forth i remember when i needed more than the need for speed offered so i had fun crashing the diablo and see how far it would fly.

and the N64 shoadows of the empire turok mario cart diddy kong racing and so on.

But most fun i have had with a console was PS1 and crash team racing the very first crash racing game.

ANd the REs evil games on PS1 damn i still remember nemesis when he crashes though a wall or windiw i got soo scared but that´s still nothing compared to ALien vs predator marine demo when i was checking the car in the begging and a alien jumps in i got so scared i almost scared my mate sitting next to me.

hehe that was sofun,gaming today well that creepy sphyco game to the 360 condemned damn it was scary really it was.

but dark sector is almost there but not quite
