kaujelek:
Id really appreciate if any1 could tell me what the name of this game is, despite the vague details.
I think you can start either as a boy or a girl or a girl only, your like a knight and your like in this castle and you like venture off to forests or deserts/valleys fighting off monsters, you encounter griffins and i think it was giant lizards or giant turtles. You are in a group sort of like final fantasy but not the same, the game is like rpg element and in one of the plot was that you went back into your fortress or castle at night and you talk with some one and you get ambushed inside the castle and you have to escape. It was a ps1 or ps2 game i wasnt so sure, but itd mean alot to me if any1 knew the name of this game.

Suikoden II?

Mr Restrained:
There are these two old games which i cannot remember:
in one you were a red spider-like robot which could climb on walls, and i could never figure out the reason for the game.
the second one you were a stickfigure and the floor had cube tiles, and the tiles would move like a wave of water, and you had to evade it somehow, but i fogot everything else.
would be really helpful! thankyou

The first one is Ghost in the Shell for the PSX....the second one...no idea.

Serioli:
Mid 90's a RTS game with four alien races:
Intelligent but weak guys that looked a bit like skeksi's from 'Dark crystal', some guys
that looked like gorillas or hippopotami that used to be their soldiers, some sapient
plants that used to be their slaves and some brown skinned guys that were like the
'peaceful monks' of the world and had a build similar to 'Grays/stereotype
aliens'

This is probably Warwind

ashlee1228:
Ok so there was a PC game in the
late 1990s, it really didn't have a point to it and you couldn't win the game. In the game
you were able to select from different room themes (ex: castle, city loft, country, etc)
and then you were able to decorate the room with items from the selected theme or any of the other themes; after you were done decorating you could make another room and so on and so on.
In the game you also had an "assistant" which you were able to interact with and could choose from several different appearance such as: dog, cat, earth, and paper clip (these were similar to the old Microsoft Word talking paper clip, no point to them, just annoying).
One more clue, I think the title had Bob in it...
Good luck!

This sounds like the Microsoft BOB interface. Not really a game. My aunt had it on her
school computer to make it easier for her students.

Aeshi:
Two games I'm trying to remember:
1. A top-down (or isometric) shooter where you play as 1 (or 2) people who've entered
this sort of maze/arena thing to kill loads of goons/robots for money.
2. It's a top-down game where you play as a ship in an asteroid field and you have to
gather crystals and kill worker ships who are trying to build some sort of Death Star
robot.

1. Smash TV
2. Sinistar

Savagezion:

Another one was on Sega where you played as a wizard and it was a dungeon crawler.
When you encountered enemies it went to a black screen with you and the monster
and you had so many seconds to do certain button combos as attacks and either you
would die or the monster would. The only thing I knew how to do was make the
monster's head explode.

Pretty sure this is The Immortal

Seth Vox:
This is killing me Please help me
Bear with me here:

Old PC game where you had like an indian tribe that you controlled and there were other tribes and maybe they came to attack you or vice versa I can't remember, but I do remember that you had like lightning bolt powers and tornado powers and you had to kill them or something? lol I know it is so vague but its just how my memory is. I believe you could build towers as well?
Please let me know

Possibly one of the old Populous games. Maybe part 3 subtitled "The Beginning."

Mine is an N.E.S. game. The player could choose one of three different planes. An F-14 Tomcat, an F-18 Hornet or a Harrier. The game would start from a third person perspective shooting down incoming fighters. If that section was survived it would switch to an isometric perspective flying around blowing up buildings.

There is this game where your in a village, building small huts, its kinda like a tribe. And your going to attack the opposite village, but i only played the demo and it was to hard, its like you can raise high mountains and use some kinda mage/tribe dude that does that stuff, and you can convert your workers to soldiers and there are like these stone things you can take over and get more power too, and you can choose mission and when you do that, you kinda see the whole world.

Again, Populous. Probably 1 or 2.

I remember this one game back on the old ps1, I believe it was a fighting style of game not sure if it was entirely arcade like. But I remember one character being a knight with completely red armor, nothing too fancy it was rather cliche if I recall correctly. I'm pretty sure there was also a character the same but with armor that was silver or something as well. I don't remember much about the levels but I do remember one being a pirate ship sort of thing and another inside a castle.

I've read about a game a long time ago, forgot what platform, but it was a puzzle or adventure game as far as I remember, and the protagonist had three or four elemental spirits who helped him during his quests. The water elemental was a small fairy-like thing, probably.
I read its review a hundred times, and I loved the concept of the game, but it was ages ago, and I can't remember any details. Please help me! Thanks!

ive got a game thats been stuck on my mind since the day i stopped playing it, back in the 90's. i cant remember if it was playstation 1 or not, but it was about a boy in this sidescroller adventure, where sum hostile creature would come out of nowhere and if you didnt jump out of the way in time or sumthin, it would devour the boy gruesomly. i.e., in the beginning you're in a cave and this creature comes from the wall and would chomp down on the top half of the boys body. very gory stuff and i want to play it again, but i cant find it anywhere.

if anyone can some how help me then thanks you.

anyways the game was an old arcade game I saw in a chuck.E cheeses it started with a boy in a feild looking at windmills when suddenly a girl chasing 2 thugs on pump carts (or minecarts) that had stolen a gem which allowed time travel if you went fast enough. I remember that if you cought up with them then you could get the gem back and if you kept it long enough before they got it back you could time travel to different places and times. I also remember the first stage had you getting chased by a train and in a prehistoric dinosaurs. there was also a future,underwater,savannah and wonderland stage. the game was a 2 player arcade game in which you had to physically pump the mine cart and jump to get past obstacles.

After all of these years i've found it. Magical Tuck Adventure.

I remember a PS1 game I had many many years ago, and I'm not sure what happened to it. All I know is, I started it, got stuck, and never touched it again. I vaguely remember something about being a criminal, and being forced to wear this mask...thing...and being dropped into some sewers and wandering around killing things in the sewers. As I said this was many years ago so those are the only details I recall. It may even have been a ps2 game though I doubt it.

Side note, the capcha I got at first for this post ended with that weird wavey = sign. I don't have that button, guys...

It's Such A Blur (Yes, I Realize There Has Been No Replys In A While).

Possibly NES Cartridge
DEFINITELY Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
MORTAL KOMBAT GRAPHICS
First Level: Desert
First Boss: GIANT Pig (Possibly Rocksteady?)
Once Beaten You Drop Into A Pit Filled With Spikes And Skulls.
Near Impossible Level...Descending On Small Platform While Dodging Enemies

Any Ideas Would Help Greatly

Thanks,

I cannot remember the name of an old DOS game..I believe you could either be a boy or a girl..And you were trying to collect pieces of armor to complete a knight to kill dragon..I believe a majority of the enemies were bunnies that would eat you and you had to escape the stomach of the bunny to continue your quest..This is driving me crazy

I used to play an old DOS game with a little man jumping from island to island. All I can still remember is that the game was quite colourful and the islands were coming out of the water and they kept sinking and coming back up. Does that sound familiar to anyone? Pleaaase help me :)

I cannot remember the system or any of the names of anyone. Or the story for that matter. All I recall is that it had a combat system similar to Fire Emblem, hidden items that forced you to walk one block at a time around every room spamming a to find them all and your party consisted of humans and dragons alike. You got the chance to name at least one of your dragons and you could feed them items to make them more powerful in one way or another. Once you fed them enough, they could become other types of dragons.

---EDIT---

Found it. It was Bahumat Lagoon.

One game , its an strategy pc game , you are a shamman or healer , warchef something like that , and you raise your tribe and conquer the otheres and you have some powers, like a god game .... any ideas ? the game is around 2003-2006 i can't remember and I really liked it ... ;/

FounD it! it was populous 3 ! cool game

troyrich:
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 i'm trying to remember (main reason why is so don't play it again)is a dungeon crawler for Sega genesis,only thing i remember about it was i was trying to pick the lock on a door and my brother dared me to use the lock pick on my self needless to say the character shoved the lock pick up his nose and ended up insta killing himself.really that's about all i remember about the game.

Hi I need to find out about a PS1 game I cant remember from around 1994-1996ish...

It was a multi character game, you could be 1 of about 5-7 characters, it was 1 or 2 player. It was a 3rd person type game. I can remember having to kick vending machines for health/power ups. One of the villans on level 3ish was a woman that had whips.

The first level you would be attacked by a group of men in the street (remind me of agents from Matrix)then you would walk into a building, beating more people up as you went, then you would face HER. It wasnt just fighting, there were guns aswell.

I would always pick a girl character and one of her main moves was she would spin on her head kicking with her legs doing the splits.

THANKS

FIGHTING FORCE,found it myself thanks anyways

I posted this in a similar thread but have had no luck, so I'll re-post it in here:

I have two games for you guys to discover. Unfortunately, what I remember from them is very vague.

1) This game was on an old DOS computer. It was set in Ancient Greece, though the story I haven't got any clue of. You play as an (old?) upper-class man, and begin the game waking up in bed, then making your way to a nearby bar. The game is highly reminiscent of Hugo's House of Horrors (same type-command gameplay), which was also on that computer.

2) This game I have no idea what it was originally on, other than some form of computer. The game featured some sort of male adventurer, who had to make his way from the left side of the screen to the right (or vice versa), all the while avoiding large monsters that patrol up and down the length of the screen. The idea was to dash across when they had their back turned on him. There may have been gemstone collecting and boulder pushing, but that might be me merging two games together. :D

Good luck, because I've been trying to find them for ages.

Okay lets see I can think of about 3 or 4 games off the top of my head that I have always wanted to replay but haven't been able to do to not knowing there names.

For starters there's this PC game where you played as a ninja. The idea was you had to kill all the other ninja's by digging holes in the ground and trick them into walking into them. My friend had this game on his PC and we could never get very far in it beacause one of us would always fall into the pit and die a patheticly drawn out death.

Then there was this fighting game on the PC. I remeber it quiet well. The idea was that you could play as tiny animals that had been some how cyberneticaly altered to turn into mechnaized warriors at the flick of a wrist. The main bad guy was a creepy old guy whole could turn into what looked like a mechnaized version of a battle toad. I could never beat do to my general lack of fighting game knowledge back then and the fact that the last boss was ridculously hard.

There was another computer game where you travled threw time aimlessly beating up people for no good reason. I remember vaguly being able to pick what time period you were from and just going from era to era just cropping the local population by a few hundred people here and there. I could never remember why you were killing all those people. I think over population was a problem in the future are something.

And finally there's this online game. Well not so much a game as a interactive cartoon. It's about cavemen. It's this pvp game and the idea is that you get a completely random character when you sign up and when he levels up he gets a completely random bonus. It was pretty cool I just lost the link beacuse the forum it was posted on got shutdown. So If anyone could tell me what this game is I'd really apperciate it.

Okay so theres the few games I can think of right off the bat i'm shure theres more but I can't think of them right now. If you guys can name any of these that'd be great.

i remember this game that was based in asia and you were this kid and one of the first levels was to climb over either mount figi or the himilayans (dunno how to spell it). one of the bosses was a giant robot. it was a 3d game. there were unlockable characters. it was action based, not turn based. you killed little robot things. i dont remember the system but i think it was the ps1 maybe the n64, not sure tho. but i really wanna know.
THANK YOU

---EDIT---

I FOUND IT.
mystical ninjas starring goemon for n64

MY LIFE IT HURTS.
oh my gosh it is driving me crazy
i used to play it around the windows 95-98 times.
this is what i can remember,
it was a jigsaw puzzle game
it was VERY bright colored
the puzzles were of dogs swimming and playing cards and weird things like just off the wall what is going on kinda stuff.
there was like crazy music in it like old school carnival meets techno music.
and it is all cartoon there is no "real" photos in it.
and thats all i can remember and i have searched so hard my brain just hurts

Definitely Battletoads. One of the hardest games ever.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battletoads

This one is killing me. My uncle gave me this game for my bday circa late 80's early 90s. He thinks it was developed by Sierra but I'm not 100% sure on that. Here's what I know

1.) It's about whales (Not Whale's Voyage)

2.) Educational feel for most of it - you can go out and spot different types of whales - decent graphics at the time.

3.) The other part of the game was exploring this old whaling museum. Part mystery, etc.. You could click on Harpoons, look at paintings etc... But it was definitely a "mystery".

4.) Played on Apple 2GS

Any ideas????

I remember this game i believe for play station 1, might of been 2 not sure, but you were an animal, i remember a dog( dog sttod on 2 feet and even wore clothes) and had a gun and you would run around different levels shooting the bad guys. This one level i think from the game was you were in this area, looked like a forest preserve and the robots were cutting down the trees and you had to stop them.

i remember playing an old pc game when i was younger cant remember the name but at the start of the game you use stones weapons then when you complete all the quests for that area you go to the next area you can use ivory weapons then obsidan weapons and ect. thats all i can remember bout it please repy if you know what game im talking about also to get to the next area you go through a portal

theres this game i used to play i cant remember most of it though i think it started in like a cell pit and when the guard comes down you beat him up and escape after your gone you make your way home but as soon as you get ther your girlfriend is kidnapped i dont remember much more but i think you used like a little bouncey ball as a weapon anybody have any idea what it is thanks

It's an old horror 3rd person game for PC. On the beginning there was some video with a man who was creating something like Frankenstein. You could select to play with a man or a woman and for a weapon there was some kind of sword(I think). I remember that there were some zombies coming out from the graveyard.....

OH MY GOD
My Past Memories Are Pretty Much Remembered
Thank You So Much, I've Seen and heard Battletoads around for years but never actually played it...Some of my recollections of the game were way off but by god you found it.
Thanks A Million,
Cole

There was an old top down game where you controlled a plane and bought a bunch of upgrades for it including drunk missiles and eventually an autogun that would automatically target enemies.

I forget about clock tower many times lol

Hi guys!
I'm looking for an old PS1 game. Can't remember what year but you were playing a girl which was half human and half alien or robot. You had to walk around and kill aliens who had invaded earth. You also had to rescue humans that were still alive and hiding in buildings or something. I remember whenever she killed something you would collect the remaining body parts to gain energy...

Any ideas??
