Monkey island 2. I played that a lot, and that's why it's one of my favorite Adventure game. Hmm. GTA and Worms too maybe. And oh yeah, Indiana Jones: FOA.

Nostalgic feeling?

Space Quest III
Police Quest II
Zak
Xenon 2
Dune 2

And some of the older ones (which I only remember):
Cats (I think that was the game's name, in which you played a cat and had to jump through open windows to do some levels)
Kongo Bongo

And there was this game where you played a rabbit or something, who had to deliver a pizza to the top of a building and had to pass some traps. I don't know, how it's name was? Does anyone know and remember the game's name?

Shit, I'm having this nostalgia feeling right at the moment.

Tomb Raider 2... That was like one of my first games on the PC ever. The first game of its type I've seen back then. If I play it now (or play a similar game just as good) it just won't be the same

Deja Vu, Uninvited, and of course,Shadowgate for the NES :=

They were great games. When I was a kid, I was afraid of the Uninvited(because the zombies in the maze would give me nightmares),  but I enjoyed watching people playing it anyways.  My fravorite one is Shadowgate, I have the original NES cartridge.
Cool stuff I found out: Men are four times more likely to be struck by lightning than women.  Wow, really? [dirty joke] Maybe this has to do with the fact that us men have "lightning rods"? [/dirty joke]

Oh, let's see...

Atari flashbacks:

- Combat
- Pac-Man
- Frogger
- Kaboom!
- E.T. (worst... licensed game... ever.)

On the NES front, there was:

- Mike Tyson's Punch Out!
- Metal Gear
- International Volleyball (or something to that effect)
- Super Mario Bros.

On the Intellivision:

- Bomb Squad! (With SPEECH! Kinda.)
- Venture
- Night Stalker

Then, finally, the PC:

- Sid Meier's Covert Action (almost like a 2-D Splinter Cell...)
- King's Quest I (unenhanced EGA, w/ PC speaker)
- Space Quest I (pirated floppies w/ messed-up graphics)
- Space Quest IV (the first game I ever played w/ a sound card -- there was even a part where Vohaul spoke! [this was not the CD talkie version.])
- Wolfenstein 3D (the first game to ever make me motion sick, and the start of my jaded attitude toward "action" games)
