Thought this might be a cool topic to chinwag on.
What was your favorites and not so favourite arcade,console, pc, pin ball whatever game from this era.
Who remembers playing this asshole of a game for free with the sega master system? From memory it was included in the console itself and you didnt need a cartridge.
I remember playing Rastan Saga at the local squash courts / pool hall where i grew up, it had a little room with a dozen arcade cabinets. Those were the days…fond memories.
I’ve got an enormous collection of Atari 800/65/130 XL/XE titles. Just let me know if you miss something of them.
@s7l great topic! Even if I wasn’t born yet , I only plaied some Pac Man, Tetris and Space Invaders…and I suck at all of them…
lol, reminds me of some older times ! Wasn t much of a gamer then but.
One we were playing my brother & I was one of the 1st tennis games, don t remember what it was.
Gee, was so slow. lol
A few games that I played:
Then I became obsessed with pinball. I used to go down to an American themed diner down the road from work in Wellington, where I dominated Adam’s family pinball and ate nachos and pizza.
You must be a ZX Spectrum guy!
It was the first computer I put my hands on, but never owned. Started from Atari 65XE.
I have to mention
Spent many hours playing that 'lil demon.
Yeah that was cool.
Now that my memory’s jogged, I also played that and centipede and who could forget asteroids- man I sucked at that
We had an Amiga 500 when I was a kid, the stand-out games for me were
Dungeon Master (and the extraordinarily hard sequel Chaos Strikes Back) and Deuteros.
I actually still play Dungeon Master & CSB now with
FS-UAE, they are still awesome after all these years
If you have a black tiger (dragon in Japan) arcade machine in cabinet let me know your price
I used to play this game on arcade machine as well back in the day, came out in 87 but i think i was playing it about 3 to 5 years later. One of the toughest games to play back then.
Seems it was only ported on Atari ST (if it comes to Atari). I can emulate it, but have no floppy images.
Feel free to choose from 14 other games, which name starts from"Black":
In an SD I’ve a batoceraLinux with games from the Nintendo and the SNES. With my nephews I play Mario Bros, Fifa 97, Star Wars and Final Fight.
I used to muck around with mame roms years ago, could probably get something working along those lines. Thanks for the offer though.
What i would like to do is something with a raspberry pi oneday, like those mini arcade machines you see on youtube.
There was a platform game I liked most. Half of the dorm would come to my room to play. I can not remember the title.
Need to review my entire collection one day.
This is a pretty obscure game from back in the day, think i spent more than i should trying to beat it. Fighting Fantasy Hippodrome…
Deus Ex missed out by 6 months. However, it pre-dates 9/11. Al Qaeda got inspiration from a video game? Spooky.
Also, what was that game that came on 10 floppy disks on the Amiga? The point and click bladerunner-esque game?
F-19 Stealth Fighter on the Speccy. Only because I could go make a round of tea and toast while each mission loaded…
F-19 Stealth Fighter
I played “F-15 Strike Eagle” on Atari. Liked it, if I remember well.
Forgot about the racing games we used to play in arcades, the money we spent in there my friend & I.
