Kings Quest was so much fun! I can't remember which number it was.. 5 or 6 I think, came in a dark blue box... that one was just.. awesome!

One of my fav PC games was Gunship 2000. You would fly a helicopter and do missions and such. The thing that bugs me with XP is you can't seem to play many of the old games on it.

The old NHL's are still so much fun. I think it was either 94 or 96 where you could check people sort of after the play. I loved that! And there was no annoying commentary! Plus in the fights you could pull the sweater over the guys head like a true hockey fight!! Hehehe.

I've just recently rediscovered the multiplayer on Agent Under Fire and we now add in bots and such during play. It gets really funny when you speed it up fast.. you really get a gist quick of how much you truly suck when you play against the bots

We also once had a PC game called Wolf. You were a wolf and went around looking for prey and avoiding hunters. The whole point was to become the Alpha female, or male and raise a successful brood. I thought it was a really neat concept.

I can't really play any of the old NHL's right now as our SNES passed away about a month ago. It'll still turn on, but it won't play any games.

It served us well, now to search the second hand shops for another!! I can't live without SNES!

My NES is getting like that. RIP. But on the plus side if you are really determined it will still play Mario Bros 3 which is obviously the most important thing! Also, Link works really well on it. I didn't used to play that game a lot 'cos I didn't understand it at all. But then I played FFs on the PSOne and so when I decided to drag out the NES I gave Link a go and was hooked for a good few days.

Yes, our NES also takes some coaxing to work as well. It will be interesting because the Nintendo Revolution claims that you will be able to play any game that's ever been released on any Nintendo system. That's pretty cool.. as long as the controls work out.

Mario 3 is such a fun game and I have to say that World 8 in that game has to be one of the hardest levels ever.

My favourite Mario is Mario 2. It's just such a different game from the other games in the series.. and very fun. I also love Mario World for the SNES. I think I've beaten that well over a hundred times and I still love it!

You know what? I've never ever, ever beaten Mario Bros 3 for two reasons.

1. I either end up playing it for hours and getting to world 8 with 30 or so lives but by that time I really can't face playing it still. (Oh, for a save function!)

2. I cheat and use warp whistles to get to world 8 with 4 lives and end up dead before I've hardly even started. I agree with you world 8 is just so hard. And it's made worse by the fact that you can't see the whole world and are never entirely sure how much further you've got to go till the end.

I never really liked Mario 2 (probably for the exact reasons that you like it!) but it was still a great game. All the Mario Bros NES games were.

I did have a Mario SNES game but I can't remember what it was called...Mario had a yellow cape instead of a raccoon suit? And Yoshi was in it.

That's Mario World I think the other Mario 2, the Lost Worlds one.. is another of the hardest.

Oh and here's my confession.

I've never beaten Mario 1.

Mario with with cape: Super Mario World that in my opinion is the best alongside Mario Bros 3

Also anyone who didn't have the chance to play Mario 64 on the N64 buy a DS

I remember that one, I think it was either Summer Games I or Summer Games II

I always like playing Winter Games though

One game I've really been into lately is Nethack. It's basically a suped-up rehashing of Rogue http://www.classicgaming.com/rotw/rogue.shtml

Text based, but brilliant.

I totally forgot to mention one of my favourites, and it's a funny one too : Day of The Tentacle. This one was so much fun and hilarious as well. It also had the original Maniac Mansion in it. Aunt Edna in the original one used to freak me out! Hehehe

To the Chron - o - John!

My absolute favorite WWII fps is Brothers In Arms: Road To Hill 30 (Xbox). The perfect mix of realism and playability. If you don't use strategy you're dead, unlike MoH and CoD where you can get by running and gunning. The graphics are outstanding, the sound and voice acting is top notch, and the level design is awesome - often almost exact replicas of the actual locations in France, and scripted to follow the actual flow of the actual battles.

I highly, highly recommend it. It does require patience, as you will die often.

I think there's another one in the series coming out soon, too. I can't wait!

LSL ruled my gaming life. I found the humour & social comment in the game quiet brilliant.

As an 8 year old half the challange of the game was trying to answer the questions at the beginning - I still didn't quite understand the concept of the game... which was probably good given the age. Police Quest would have been much more wholesome.

Such a great game. Best theme music ever in a game too!

Has anyone played Silent Hill on PS2? I got it for $2 and have never started it.
