Old Games you remember playing but can't remember the name of.

I was thinking eariler about all the games i used to play and one came to mind that i used to love, but i cannot for the life of me remember what it was so I wondered if anyone else gets this same memory issue and who knows Might end up finding some classics we forgot long ago.

My one is a PC game It was a car game of sorts driving around and arena leaving a coloured trail behind you and you killed other players by getting them to drive into the trail you leave behind. I think the cars and arena were mostly black (or at least the version i had was) and the trail and 'walls' coming from the cars were really bright colours depending on team etc. Like red, orange, green, blue.

Well there you go, What games have you forgotten, Hopefully we can rediscover old games we thought long lost!

The game you're describing sounds like Tron, but I doubt that's what it is.

I remember playing a game on the NES where your a ninja, marial artist, or something of that nature. I turely loved that game, and what really taunts me is theres this gif running around where he's doing the moves from the game and it looks like he's dancing. If anyone knows what I'm talking about, please tell me.

it had a black background, and all objects were colored, 2D polygons. There were a few 45 degree angles. I remember piloting my polygon from room to room, collecting objects and solving simple puzzles. It ran on the apple IIe computer, on 5 1\4 floppy. I don't remember much else.

Maybe it had something to do with mother goose.

kung fu?

Well I remember all my games mostly because I still have them so I can look on that rack right behind me and see what I forgot.

I can not for the life of me remember this one japanese movie though, it was about these kids who had to kill eachother on an island so that they could survive.

From how you describe it, it sounds to me like that one flash game where everything is black except for you and any other pc controlled players you put in.

Edit: It's called BM Tron I found it on Coolmath4kids in spikes game zone. You can look it up if you like.

i remember an overhead view plane(ww2 based i believe) flying game for the ps1 i think.....i was very good at it to.
also and jrpg(not a final fantasy game) also from the ps1. i know its to vague for anyone to figure it out but i just wanted to post sumthing

That looks like it.

Just looked it up on Wiki.. this does look very similar, but i can't see something that is quite right, it would be late ninties early naughties if anything and hte only Tron in that time was FPS.

Sorry Thiosk I have no idea about your's never used that system but i'll keep an eye out for you.

It's Battle Royale, good movie and I'll take a look at BM tron now

--Edit-- Not BM Tron that i saw.. although from what im seeing this is a Tron style game.. even if it seems to have vanishedfrom exsistance

It was a Japanese game for the PS1... one of the best side-scrolling shooters I've ever come across. It was basically like R-Type Delta, but done with submarines.

For the Megadrive (genesis). It was basically Contra but you played as 1 of 4 Robots.

Dude that japanese film youre thinking of Battle Royale! Great film, fucked u, but great. I still have that, might go watch it now.

It was a game for the PS1, I think it was like a Gradius kind of arcade shooter, but at one part it went 3D and I was shooting a giant robot fish, I kept shooting it in the eyes and it didn't seem to die.

Yeah it was cool but I honestly don't remember what it was.

Dang, I have one. I can't for the life of me remember what console it was on, either, I think either PS1 or N64, maybe even earlier, though I doubt it. You controlled a girl (I think wearing green? With brown hair?), and the only part I can remember is running through a dark series of caves, and to recover health you had to eat stuff that looked like chicken wings, which were visible on the floor to pick up (I'm pretty sure there was a sound effect of her wolfing the chicken wings down). There was a ridiculous boss somewhere in the caves, too, and he was pretty tough, but other than that...

Nothing. Dammit. I played it very briefly at a friend's when I was six or seven, and have never seen it since.

Looks awesome.

there was a game which i think was on the Mega Drive (Genesis in USA) where you were a ninja and had special moves, one of which was called Fushin which increased your jumping distance, another made you explode and killed anything caught in the explosion. the second level involved platform jumping across a waterfall. it was a side scrolling game, had you fighting a lot of enemies a late level was like a labyrinth with a lot of revolving doors that i never made it passed.

The overview plane game, was it a shooter similar to say space invaders or Valken, or G-Darius? because if it was I think it was on the sega and the game was called 1942, there was also a sequel called 1943. It was a great game. i remember it well. Used to play it everyday. seems like the one you are talking about.

It sounds very vaguely like a game called Threads of fate but I am most likely incorrect.

Oh my jesus I couldn't remember that for the longest time, thanks guys I'm gonna go watch that now.

The fish boss. Holy crap, i know the game you're talking about. It was a very well-done R-Type clone that the demo made me hire the full game and complete it. I believe the game you're thinking of is G-Darius (not Gradius, but interesting that they have the exact same letters, coincidence I think not). I think I nailed this one. The game you're after is G-Darius, hope that helps.

im sorry but ur answer seems kind of impossible for me seeing as i didnt get sega(fool that i am) it wasnt like space invaders ur plane moved foward and the enimies moved in the opposite direction u went sort of like tiger-heli(its not tiger-heli btw so no scarcasm plz) .thnx for trying anyway....i wonder if i can find my old memory card if it will still be on there...hmmm....

Not sure exactly which one it was, but that's definitely Shinobi (and most likely Revenge of Shinobi, though I'm not sure if it had a different name outside of North America). Could also be Shinobi 3, but the second level of that had you riding a horse not jumping on a waterfall. Both of their final levels had mazes with revolving doors.

Could also be Karateka. That, if memory serves, had some amazing animation that could have easily been strung together into that animated gif I know you're talking about.

it was a game where u are some lady with a bow and arrow who has a pet tiger. the game sucked but...

I looked up a video and it does look familiar, dunno if it is but it might be, thanks!

Aha! Silver! That's what it was called..

I guess this kind of voids my inquiry. It was about an RPG that had these beautiful environments [isometric prespective, very detailed] but truly terrible 3D character models.
I used to watch my friend's brother play it for hours..Good times.

It was on the old school library computers back in Primary. You used nytroglycerin and tennis balls and gravity pads to solve puzzles... goddamn I want to play that game.

For me it was answered recently. Alundra for the PS1.

I'm 100% sure it is. It's the only R-Type like sidescroller I can remember on the psone that had a fish boss. Glad I could help.

So the plane went across the screen horizontally, not vartically? Because if it was vertically, I'm positive it was 1942-3. Even if it wasn't, if you're into that sort of thin,g you should check out 1942. Great game, but the bosses are hard as you have to save your bombs up (they're the only way to kill the carriers).

I remember a game where you were a guy in white shirt and had to kill dragons, you could get a gun somewhere. It was very Mario-ish and it was fun for a 5 year-old

Sounds like it could be a port of In The Hunt. Maybe?

The game where you played golf with frogs. A surprisingly fun game for the PS2, with a very good sense of humor, though it was very strange... and pseudo-violent.

2 games
1 is an old rts with different races that was cool (sorry can't really elaborate on it more)
2 IS a battle driving game. Think Death race meets Wipeout and unreal tournament, winner gets out of death row. Lots of cool arena and weapons, no idea what happened to it though.
