Huge commodore fan here;) (though memories are a bit blurry - it's been a LONG time)

Yup.  Many years ago but I still remember this one (also, I remember never quite mastering the mid-flight refueling!). 8-)

Your turn, Mr Grim.

Sorry for the wait - work...

Anyway, here's one of my favourite games (surprise surprise;) ) I looked for a screenshot that doesn't instantly give it away... but it can still be considered fairly easy:



Let's see if it takes you longer than 5 minutes to guess what it is;)

Reminds me of Outlast a little but I doubt that's it.

Gribbler, you're right, as usual:) It's Outlast.

Really?? I played it only because it was free on PSN+ and not for too long. I don't recognize the screenshot from the game but it has the same horror-y mental asylum feel to it. :) I must admit, the game has its moments if you play on headphones and in the dark but I couldn't stand constant running and hiding gameplay mechanics. I so wanted to fight those guys! :D Not necessairly with a gun but give me a crowbar, a shovel, give me something! :)

I have it installed! It has a really awkward interface for using your inventory and notebook. I never got past the first few screens or so. Anyway...

Damn, I remember that, it's called Castle Quest or something - don't remember the real title.

Edit: was it called Castle Adventure?

I'm pretty sure you played it, but in the rare case you haven't... play silent hill 2! Stick with nails in it against slimy nightmare monsters  :-D

I played SH2 many many times. In my opinion it's the best Silent Hill game ever created. And Pyramid Head was one of the best and original monsters I've seen in a game. Funny how Shinji Mikami is trying the same thing with his Evil Within now but instead of the pyramid monster has a giant safe on his head. :)

Oh sorry, monkey424! We have the same awesome taste in games. I guess it's GarageGothic's turn next.
