Did anyone have The Incredible Machine? Oh, and Catz and Dogz and Toon Town, and this Atlantis: The Lost Empire game I got in a cereal box one time. 

 

And thanks to Spleen, I got Space Cadet Pinball back. Reliving my childhood right there.

Well it might be a bit obvious, heh.

Beyond Good and Evil marked me when I was a child, because of its ambiance and characters .

I used to play the Syphon Filters serie on Psp a lot, until the server went down, and the first COD too. I also liked Silent Hill : Shattered memories. 

 

Though I'm more of a post-apo person nowadays.

I was a console gamer growing up so most of the stuff I played was on Nintendo systems.

 

As for what I played on PC as a kid. Mostly Chip's Challenge, Diablo II, and Morrowind.

 

Oh holy crap I totally forgot about Age of Empires II. I played the crap out of that!

The lack of Dungeon Keeper in this thread disappoints me.

I'll show my age here and say...Commander Keen. I remember playing that when it came out and I got my first computer. I loved it.

 

Mixed Up Mother Goose was another DOS classic...

Mixed-Up Mother Goose rang a bell, but I don't recognize any of the screenshots. Hm.

 

Since we're talking DOS, Heartlight was one of my favorites. Frustrating as hell to me as a wee thing, but engrossing.

Definitely scared the shit out of me! Like the fucking wax skeleton who came after you? My cousin was playing and I was backseat-playing and it was my idea to go hide in the boiler room, and we could still hear him coming, even though we hid in there for like, fifteen minutes, and then we opened the door, and he came up and we screamed and he melted and the music stopped and we were breathing hard and shaking and just standing there.

 

Game was intense.

Let's see how much I remember...

 

So you're caught up in a mystery/The scary tale of Orphero and his curse.

To solve it you must be very clever/And the spell you're obligated to discurse!

Look (something-something) for an image of a man/A man with a top hat with a silver band

Stand up very tall, and touch those creepy eyeballs/And point them looking up with your hand.

Touch those awful peepers with your hand. Touch those sticky eyeballs with your hand!

Once that is done, then you can solve the mystery/The scariest part about it is the truth.

You will find the horrid-able truth.

The odious, abominable, ha-ha-ha, truth.

 

Holy fuck.

From memory.

From like, 1997 or something.
