WOW!!!!! Nostalga SMACK IN THE FACE!!!!!

I was looking for a C64 style synthesizer vst plug-in (Still looking) when I came across an mp3 entitled "Crazy comets" by Ron Hubbard. His name sounded VERY familiar and I played the tune, and INSTANTLY recognised the song!

http://www.gamestone.co.uk/zzap_world64/datahits/04_crazy_comets.mp3

I didn't remember the game though till I looked at a screenshot:



Wow! I'd TOTALLY forgot about Crazy Comets! I played this loads!

*Saves the mp3*

I feel like finding mp3s of things like Creatures 2 and Spy VS Spy now!

Ooh, and that codemasters game with the formula one cars from birds eye view! What was that called? Super.. hmm.. can't remember. Damn. Maybe not super.

PS - Aww, I saved it but it won't play with any of my music players..

If you had posted 20 years after today, we wouldn't even know wtf you would be saying.

Suddenly twenty years pass.
No more military army stuff. I'm alive and back.

Pffth. if we were lucky we found a pinball table and had to fight through hordes of wolves, you know, back before the war started.  ;)

The arcades were a great time indeed.

Okay, games that get me EVERY FREAKING TIME:

Command and Conquer
Monkey Island series
Sonic the hedgehog on the Sega Mega Drive
Broken Sword 1&2
Age Of empires
Blade Runner (never seen the film, got the game)
Baldur's Gate
Deus Ex.

My family wasn't particularly rich when I was younger (we aren't now, but we are better off than we were) -We weren't in serious trouble with money, we just didn't have any spare for things like computer games. So I grew up on a mixture of my big brother's games- Age of empires, Command and Conquer, Monkey Island, and a Mega Drive almost older than me (We kept it until we moved house in 2003- It was in perfectly good working order as well), and a mixture of games bought for me- Like Deus Ex, and Broken Sword- these games stand out particularly.

By the way, anyone else get this? Most of all, above all else, the thing that makes me nostalgia the most is music. The music is the key.

I was too young to see the arcade machines sadly, and in too remote a part of the country   :(.

Yeah... I was lucky, I guess. My family was into the arcade business back then. We owned arcades, table footballs (soccer - USA), mechanic and electric/electronic pinballs etc. Shit, I can still remember three bugs/exploits/cheats for Donkey Kong.

Has anyone kept one of these ancient games, even though it no longer works, just in case a fix is released? There's wishful thinking, and then there's keeping a decade old game for no reason.

I still own the original first release of Daggerfall. I kept it because I hoped that one day a patch would fix all them quest killers, exploits and crashes.
There never was a real patch. Well, there was sort of an unofficial one, called Morrowind, so I went with that.

I also have several Apogee games that just wait for a better version of DosBox, Alien Carnage being one of the best (because there's girls to rescue).

Bethesda released an updated windows patch for Daggerfall 7 years ago, and before that was a dos patch.  You can find them (and some unofficial patches) here.

http://www.uesp.net/dagger/files/dagfiles.shtml#official


I am a great fan of the original Daggerfall, and I didn't apply the patch because it forced you to kill if you were a werewolf or you'd 'die', which was total crap.  It also added the sun damage to vampires making them virtually useless.

Here's my freaky list of games I've collected in all those years. Sorry, just got the collectors gen in my blood...
Most off them are oldies, all of them are only PC versions.
Still playing some of them now and then... :P

I started playing games for PC in about '84 I guess.
With a 086, no hard-disk, only two 5¼-inch floppy's (that was real DJ-ing) and green monochrome screen :P.

To name some of my oldtime arcade favorites:

crystal caves,
titus the fox,
prehistorik 1 and 2,
commander keen,
the amazing spider-man,
rick dangerous,
gods,
and so on...

1. The Adventures of Willy Beamish (Sega CD)
2. Collossal Cave Adventure (text adventure)
3. Faxandu (NES)

Willy Beamish brings me back to Friday nights eating grilled cheese made by my step dad, plain Pringles and a coke. I'd stay up all night reading every description, trying every branch, etc. I loved it. I'd like to jump back through time to those nights just for a moment. The funny thing about nostalgia, though one of the best feelings known to mankind, is that it can also make you miss those days, almost sadden you... almost long for it to be real again.

Collossal Cave, even though played long after it's initial release (got it for free through the Adventure Game Toolkit 1.7 download) brings me back to sitting in my room infront of my 386 with Win3.1 thinking of games I wanted to make, while playing this one.

Never finished Faxandu, but the music takes me back, like many other NES soundtracks.
