[up][up][up]: Cubivore, eh? Nice to see someone with a more obscure game on their list!

I myself have very fond memories of a really obscure little game called Lil Monster. I still consider it a favorite of mine to this day, though it's really out there in terms of obscurity. I even bought a second copy of it in real life just to have more save files and play through it again...

@hnd: Thanks! The disk also had a level from Crash III and one of the Tomb Raider games, I believe.

A whole hell of a lot of stuff. Notably entries in the Dragon Quest franchise. 3, 4, 7, and Monsters 2 in particular.

Hydlide I have nostalgic feelings for as well. And Kirby's Dream Course.

They are memories of pain and ruined weekends.

Obscure game wise...Chameleon Twist and Jersey Devil.

It's the Over Lord!
The Math Blaster series. Carmen Sandiego games, including the math based one. Tetris, Pokemon, and a multitude of Gamecube/N64 games. Including a copy of Cubivore I still own.

And I used to play Duke Nukem 2D and a little game called Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure.

I remember being excited for going to the computer lab in elementary school because it meant there was a chance that I could be playing Word Muncher if I finished quickly enough.

Don't judge me!

I used to have a lot of fun with Reader Rabbit back in the day. No judgement intended, good sir.

I AM NOT A TREE
Super Mario Bros (Who HASN'T played this game at an early age?)
Me...

I remember in elementary school, all the Macs had this game installed called Marble Blast Gold and this other game where you were some type of alien or something and you went around abducting people or something. Think the first level was on a farm or something.

Also a few of them had Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4.

@Aiko: Thanks for mentioning Tony Hawk, forgot that one on my list. I used to play that game with my brother all the time.

I haven't played SMB ever. I grew up with Sonic (though I did own a N64 and have played a few Mario games, so you can't accuse me of being biased in the console war. I didn't even know about it back then!)

Who you are does not matter.
God, you people make me feel old.

I remember the original GATO. I didn't play it much, but I remember it. The glory of the green screen.

The LucasArts WW2 flight sims. Battle of Britain (I had it on freaking 5" floppies and still have one of the disks), Battlehawks 1942, Secret Weapons Of The Luftwaffe. Red Storm Rising sub simulator.

I got Wing Commander 2 on CD as the first time somebody ever gave me a game for a Christmas or birthday gift. I remember the release of the original Civilization.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
