I have played so damn many I can't recall where it all began. But I know for a fact that my first was dos based.
Thanks for making me feel old.
Me too. Every now and then I drop the name of a really old game and no one knows what the hell I'm talking about! THAT makes me feel old. It doesn't matter how *old* the games are, its how obscure.
I remember playing a screensaver game called "killer crayon" on my dads 386. Then came a number of other DOS games that I can barely remember. Then came Kid Pix. There was some wacko game about recycling where this dinosaur roams around collecting parts to build a spaceship, eventually bartering for a bag of raked up leaves to recycle as fuel. Then came a game about a stuffed bear who came to life when his owner was sleeping. I think you had to bake her a cake or something, that game was great.
Then we got a 486 and my game library got a lot bigger, Jaz jackrabbit. One must fall. Xargon, Solar Winds, all through dos. X-wing, TIE fighter, Raptor: Call of the Shadows, Tyrian 2000 even super solver game you could mention. Also that one with a submarine that shot ink torpedoes and was recovering parts of a crashed spaceship. Then Ancient Empires which was basically super solvers in egypt, with laser guns. Duke Nukem and Doom when the parents weren't watching... Hexplore. XCOM. Hyper 3d pinball...Oh right, incredible machine! Dark forces 1 I beat, but I never did dark forces 2. All those awesome Dr. BRain games. Pitfall and Earthworm Jim fit somewhere in there. Outpost 1 and 2.
Somewhere after that we got a new computer, this time a pentium 333. The Exile trilogy, mechwarrior 3... Hell even 10six, NONE of you know what that game is without google I guarantee you. Now I'm really starting to get the dates muddled up...
Oh! I know, if I were to pick from all the games windows 95 and previous it would be an even tossup between Timone and Pumbaa's Jungle games and The Logical Journey of the Zoombinis.
Heh that brings back memories. I guarantee you there are at least another 200 I can't recall off the top of my head. Battlezone 1, Deathtrap Dungeon, Army men (the original!), Command and Conquer, Screamer racing (its on GoG), Master of magic, Master of Orion 1 (never got around to 2), Hyper 3d pinball, I think there was a Zork game in there somewhere.
Some sort of RTS jurassic park game, countless "edutainment" games I can't remember the name of. Lode runner, Dune 2000, Oddworld, Worms, Hellbender, Fury 3, Simcity (black and white on mac!), Sim ant and other sim games. Space hulk.....
