So how many of these games mentioned in the link have you played? I am sure that some of you at least played one of them, while others played even more.

Wow, Doom, that's the first game I was addicted to and Test Drive, or my god! You?

By introducing disasters?

I know some people do that but nah, I just move things around a lot or develop a zone halfway then decide it's better elsewhere (bad mayor ).

Pikachu volley ball, we used to save it up in a floppy disk and bring it to school during computer class and play, little did we know the teacher has total surveillance of what devilish things we do on our desktop.

when I was in secondary school (around 19 years old), our math teacher, who is also the computer class teacher, took us to the computer lab to play network games after completing the lesson for that day, of course if time permits. Then we all went up there and played Starcraft.

He even told us to tell the younger students, if asked why playing, that we the older ones were just testing the school networks.

damn you have one heck of a teacher

Talking about game on floppy, I remember a car racing game called Lotus too, which I was so addicted to it when I was small. Have anyone played it?

Never heard of it (Lotus reminds me of office software ), but the graphics look pretty good for its time.

For a while I played this series called Hugo (Hugo House of Horrors and Hugo 2: Whodunit?) [ link ] but I'm awful at most games, including type or point-and-click adventures. Still, with these mystery games, curiosity killed the cat ...

How about the old game "Alone in the Dark"? That was a scary game at the time...

Here it is (wow, an hour long this thing is!)

Night Angel . 24-2-14
You seriously want to play again?

Heyo, this Alone in the Dark gives out a minecraft vibe and looks way less scarier!!!

Now i'm scared & mind f u c k e d that a version like that existed before

Night Angel . 26-2-14
at that time, such a horror game was very successful, and don't forget the spooky background music!

yooo, so many memories a popping up!

Pacman, Doom, Mortal Kombat, Worms, Quake.

Was a great fan of the first person shooters, esp when their franchises were revived in the recent years.

However, honorable mentions include the hit em up side scroll games (The Punisher, Aliens vs Predator, Dynasty Warriors/Warriors of Fate)

The original SimCity was the greatest game ever back in the day. I loved building cities, then destroying them with godzillas and floods. But Duke Nukem 3D taught me how to mod games, and Starsiege Tribes taught me how to program.
Tribes was the best, there were massive maps, vehicles, jetpacks, and you can do some insane things with mods.

I can't say that I've played too name games from the list, but I go to a retro arcade called Grinkers.

It's pretty cool because they have actual arcade machines with the specific controls for the game. Some of them get pretty intense even when you're only looking at wire frames! Lol

My favorite would have to be Gauntlet, so fun with 4 players!

Tribes was definitely an insane game with a lot to explore, kind of reminds me of the first ever Unreal Tournament (the best one may I add)
