What games did everybody play on their computers at school or when they were younger

For me, I remember playing games in education city although can’t remember but they’re about. I also really love playing the CBBC website and CBeebies website. Girls go games What another great website and I remember playing again called sneeze which was a bit like the Covid pandemic, but 10 years ago! Interested to hear what you guys played

I used to play FRIV all the time. There was like a bull game on there where you would run away from the bull and there was also a cat with milk game.
Also I used to play fire boy and water girl on maths is fun I think.
Oh and online simon says memory game.
Fun times.
Fireboy and Watergirl!! I love how Disney has reclaimed that
yess the resemblance is uncanny between the two. But its fun and I love the movie and the game soo
The oldest ganes I remember were on casettes for a monitor with a green screen. The games I played were Trivial Pursuit and Wheel of Fortune to name two games I still have in mind.
Lemmings and James Pond, on Acorn Archimedes, then later Ken's Labyrinth on the school's shiny new Windows 95 PC. :moon:

I am sure to remember James Pond: It was a goldfish and the whole game a parody to James Bond playable on SNES. Correct me, if I am wrong.

Sounds like the same franchise! James Pond 2 got released on SNES, but not the first game apparently, which is the only one I've played.

I just realized that the game was released for many different platforms. Must have been a popular franchise.
Fire Boy and Water Girl :lol: went to the ICT labs at lunch time to go on CoolMaths - no idea how they did it but the ICT department sent me this pop up on my computer which told me to leave the lab :frown: never went back after that. Didn't see the harm tbh since it was at lunch time

Me and my friends usually played counter strike and then shared our results with each other.
Now i checking professional gamers profilerr.net/cs-go/pro-players/settings and wondering how they were able to achieve those results. It looks like a decent job now, right?
