    Hey guys, this thread is for posting games that you grew up with/might not have played in a while. I'm a huge fan of older video games, maybe it's because I was brought up playing them but the difficulty and beauty of older video games is hard to find today. So my idea is to post a screenshot or gameplay video of an old game that you love.

    I'll start with 2 games that are very special to me. Both were my first video games, I still have them for the original (yellow model not original grey) Gameboy and they still work just as well as they did when I was a kid. Over the years I've played these 2 to death, but I still can't resist seeing that 'Nintendo' roll down the screen.

    Super Mario Land



    Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins



    I'll post more in seperate posts as thread progresses.

    I loved Windows 95. Maze screen-saver all the way.I used to play Myst all the time, it's one of my favourite games of all time.

    Myst gameplay:



    I finished Myst (with more than a little help from my dad). Never finished Riven (that was impossible). I also used to have an racing game called POD (Planet of Death), that was very fun aswell.

    POD (PC) Gameplay:



    This might be more Windows 98 territory, but I loved this and the games that followed it (up until Legend that is)

    Tomb Raider 2 PC: The voice at the start is Lara's and goes after 4 seconds. The actual missions start at around 14:45.



    Good times, good times indeed. I still own all of the games I've listed lol and now I really feel like playing them.

    I'm sure there are loads of us out there who've played (and thoroughly enjoyed) the Commander Keen series.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but certainly the difficulty of games has plummeted over the years. If you play games like Battletoads or Ghosts 'n' Goblins, you'll know why the rare few modern games that are exceedingly difficult are given the title of "NES hard". Anyone who can complete something like Abe's Oddysee (which isn't even particularly 'modern' but is one of the more difficult pro-made games of the last 15 years that I can remember), Super Meat Boy or VVVVVV without dying would be performing a feat that is simply amazing. There's a reason these games give you infinite lives - you ****ing need them Similarly, Dwarf Fortress proudly sports the motto "Losing is fun", because whether you play it in Fortress Mode or Adventure Mode, your dwarves will be killed. Numerous times.

    One NES-hard title from my childhood, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles...anyone who played it will typically remember it for one thing and one thing only: the Hudson's Dam level where you have to navigate a maze where the seaweed (and other things) throughout the maze will kill you very, very quickly, while having to navigate the maze and defuse six bombs within a three-minute time limit.

    How about Rosco McQueen on Playstation? I remember playing that on a demo unit in Argos and ended up getting it when I bought a PS1 eventually!



    Futurecop L.A.P.D was a game I was surprised that never got a sequel or has been revived for current-gen.

    I also used to have an racing game called POD (Planet of Death), that was very fun aswell.

    POD (PC) Gameplay:

    Oh my God! POD was unreal for it's time! Seeing this has brought back so many memories, cheers! :grin:

    This is my choice, Rage Racer. An absolutely unbelievable game when I was a kid and well before it's time.



    Anyone else remember it?

    Nintendo World Cup on NES! Amazing! Me and my wee brother never did win. Loved the ridiculous tackling and when you could make the ball burst and go flying like an unstoppable bullet!
