  1. I've played many new games but very few of them have the replay value of old-school games like Contra on the NES and MGS on the original PlayStation. Just wanted to give people like me a place to dicuss their memories of the long-gone days of Virtua Fighter and Street Fighter.(NES, SNES, C64, Genesis, Game Gear and pretty much any old consoles u can think of)

    Ahhh... those were the days.
    I have fond memories of Lode Runner on the C64. I also played all the Ultima games they had for that computer. I'll never forget the day my friend and I finished Ultima III: Exodus.

    I too absolutely loved the original Rainbow Six. I had a demo of Rogue Spear and I used to play it on my old Pentium 200 MMX! Great fun! Even Killer Instinct on the SNES was a nice fighting game.

    Ok, I'm going back before PC were invented! :rolleyes: It was an arcade tank game (I can't even rmember what it was called). It was 3D (barely) and the tanks and were drawn as a 3d CAD like figures. When you killed an enemy tank it exploded into fly triangles. Spent many hours and quarters playing that in the student lounge at college. Ahhh, sniff. (circa 1980)

    Coming up a few years now: QUAKE the original FPS that set the bar. Q1 is why I game on-line today and you can guess I'm pretty old, married, have kids, but still love to spend a few hours on line and frag the crap out of you little cheating hackers. :haha:
