Okay, there was this game on the gamecube, an RPG, maybe a JRPG.
The character you played as had a backpack with a big robot arm and hand that you used to fight with.
There was this girl who followed you around, she never talked and she fought with a frying pan.
That's really all I remember.

Sounded exactly like a Dreamcast game I played, so I did a search and it turns out they did a version for Gamecube too. It's definitely Evolution Worlds:

..but it was 2d, side scrolling, and everything was fairly detailed, the character you control is a buff blond guy who runs around half naked...

As soon as I read "buff blond guy" I thought of the original Duke Nukem, (DN1 or DN2) it was a side scroller and there may have been some scenes that match your description.

I briefly played this game for maybe 15 minutes but it left an impression. It was an RPG, top-down view, not 3D. I think it was an early 90's game. A few details I remember was running around a town performing various tasks like baking bread. Later you could get a horse to speed up travel. Later I saw a friend playing and he was on horse drawn cart which gave him more storage space.

Edit: I played it on the PC but I don't know if it was available for other platforms.

Hello everyone,

I played a game when I was small (please excuse the really vague details) involving a male and female ninja duo. Possibly brother and sister. It was close 3rd person, and I don't think it's Tenchu.

It's either released on PS1/2 or original Xbox, I think it is Xbox.
It was a dark game, and I remember a level in a forest with lots of bamboo.

Ok so I used to play this game, i think it was either playstation one or playstation 2. You were this young guy who was working in a mine, and you had a mechanical bird and i think you had to collect gears to power things, and i remember the first big thing being escaping from the mine as it collapsed. I feel like he used some kind of tool as a weapon. Any ideas would be appreciated.

**** Stumbled across on accidnt! It was Haven!

ok ok here is a very strange one guys and gals, i remember playing a PS2 game where you play as what i can only describe as a human hologram who flies around inside a program, and you shoot enemies ... but ... when you shoot them it plays a note, if your get lets say a 12 hitstreak it combines all 12 and plays a melody, each level brings a new look to your human hologram thingy, and new sounds, please help guys =]

no worries people i just found it :D REZ!!

In 2005 I played a shooter pc game. It could be from 2005, 2004, 2003. I don't know.
You enter in a cemetery and after you is a cameraman. You have to kill zombies and when you do this, the TV audience is growing.
In the right bottom, is the reaction of the public who watch the show.
If anyone knows the name, please tell me.
I can't find it.
Thank you!

Nailed it, thanks.

Hi, I'm trying to find the name of this old game.

It is similar to Zelda I think in terms of game style. This is what I remember from the game:

You start in a small cave next to a town by coming out of some chamber or time travel device thing. You fight with a single hero that uses a sword. The sword can be upgraded into a wind, fire, ice, lightning sword. Each type can be upgraded 3x I think so you can charge and fire more powerful attacks. The first thing you do is leave north of town to fight gorilla and slime looking monsters. You have to find a sleeping man in a cave and get some potion to wake him up and power up the windmill to open up another cave. The first boss in that cave is a witch looking thing that teleports around and attacks you with bats.

Can anyone tell me what was the name of this game? It was 2D also.

Hi guys hope you can help me

Im looking for a ps1, it was an arcade fighter but i distinctly just remember 2 character really... there was this girl fighter who had an extender pole thing that she hit you with, one of her specials was actually hitting you into space? or onto the moon or something. and the other character was also a girl but she had some massive machine thing on her arm that would shoot rockets and lasers and propel her forward and stuff.

much appreciated

Well I hope i can explain this well enough...

This game has a sequal...but the first one that came out i believe has a girl and her father...you can pick one of the two...i think the girl had swords and the father had a big stick...and you are in a setting that reminds me alot of old time englad, like jack the ripper setting...and u are fighting these monsters...not sure if they are demons or not, but there are different kinds, and they usually pop out after you turn a corner...and i remember that you can do some sick a$$ excecuation finishing moves...

the most detailed part of the whole game i can remember is you are going up this tower, don't know why though, and while you are heading up this tower, you fight a few monsters on the way..well as you start to go up the stairs, you can see this big a$$ monster climbing on the outside of the tower, going up to meet you somewhere..and u see a few of these monsters climbing up, and they are huge compared to you, like 3 times as tall..

it is really driving me crazy :(

oh and the girl i believe has her head wrapped up in cloth? something like that...

and the sequal you start in some kind of crazy hospital, and the mosters are attacking again, and i believe you are the father and only the father, and you had been injured, so you are all wrapped up and i think you have blades surgically attached to your arms...idk...i hope i can find it :(

that sounds like dragon warrior

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

Populous? Was also a Gameboy game and PS1 title if i'm not mistaken.

Marius Randomsizer Elgsaas:
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.

Definatly Populous: The Beginning

Crystalis! I love that game! One of my favorite games of all time!

I'm thinking of a 2d bird's eye view shoot'em up game. It had some sound effects that were similar, if not ripped off of Doom. You could pick up different guns like pistol, shotgun, rocket launcher etc. I think I remember it mostly being in doors in a warehouse type of setting. I think it had blood and gore, but I'm not sure. I think I remember one of the guns shooting out an explosive ball or something. I also think I remember the main character and the enemies all being kinda chunky, but I'm not too sure about that one. Maybe an early '90s game?

Hey I've been looking for a game I played as a kid in the 90s (odd, I know), but it was a learning tool, I think. It involved a sort of neighborhood and every house had a different learning game in it. I'm having trouble identifying it. It was CD-rom game as well. It was like two rows of houses with grass and a sunny sky as a background. It was just point and click. I vividly remember one of the houses had a game where you alphabetize VHS tapes with kid-friendly parodies of films (I.e. Exterminator instead of Terminator) and each tape had a funny little clip. Any help would greatly be appreciated, even though I doubt many people played this since I think it was for the younger age groups.

Bob, please check your email. I posted a video on page 167. I'm fairly certain the game is called Crystalis.

I'm curious if u can remeber a game name for me. You have to rebuild ur village by fighting in caves/ dungeon lvls and as I do u gain watter and plants and people and houses and once u have collected all and uve placed them out u move on to a new town to do same. I believe it was on ps2

Dark Cloud maybe?

escapist3991:
Hey does anyone remember any of these pc games?they are from anywhere between 1993ish until 2002.Sorry they are so vague!

1. Black dark arena looking place where these dark like monster/alien looking guys fight each other vs. style like mortal combat etc. not the best graphics

2.Another vs. style game where every arena looks like a planet and everything has like a colour theme like the alien/person thing you fight is purple and so is the place you are fighting them at.

3.Weirdest game that I could never get to work!It was like a first person looking view where you are hovering around all over the place and landing atop hills or just flying over them and you were a fly?or looked like one?not really too sure.

4.A game where you click on something in main menu and it takes you whereyou make your own colony or land or something? looked really fancy and better graphics like you could go back to the main menu and it looked all regal and kind of like brown colours and chesspiece looking..super hard to remember exactly.

1) Man, that could be ANYTHING. Can you remember any more details at all? Rough year, or what console it appeared on?

2) Rise of the Robots / Blackhole Assault / Cosmic Carnage?

3) The only game I can think of where you play as an insect is Mr Mosquito on the PS2...

4) Heroes of Might and Magic? That had a vaguely Chess-like aesthetic.

auron2112:
A game I probably played in the early 2000s, but it I think it was from the mid/late nineties. I think it was bundled as a demo with some kind of robocop game and a demo of Total Annihilation, but don't quote me on that. You were in something like a spaceship, it flew, and it was black I think, and angular, but it was first person. but you were underground I think. There was a bit you went through that said "no humans beyond this point" or something similar. You could collect powerups and stuff and when you died, you could respawn and find where you died before and pick up your powerups from the last time (which I thought was genius at the time). I also seem to recall everything being very brightly coloured, but again, don't quote me on that.

Descent / Fury3 / Forsaken?

Serinaty:
There's a game for the SNES I remember playing when I was a kid, where you play this teenage girl who is given super powers and can turn into this like almost sailor moon type character. I remember she had short brownish hair and it was a side scroller...I've been wanting to play it again for quite a while but can't for the life of me remember the name...>.< Please help.

Athena?

kichitsukima:
I used to play this game, I don't remember any of the plot, but it was 2d, side scrolling, and everything was fairly detailed, almost along the lines of castlevania. Im almost sure it was set in a fantasy world.

Anyway, the character you control is a buff blond guy who runs around half naked. I think he carried a sword and killed flying things. He may or may not have also shot fireballs.

One image from the game that is seared into my mind is the beginning of one of levels. He's standing on top of a (vividly) green hill/mountain, in front of a stone door.

If anyone can help me find this game I used to play I will love you forever. Its been driving me up the wall for months.

Possibly Actraiser 2?

I was a pretty avid original Xbox gamer and I'm afraid it doesn't ring any definite bells... could it be you're thinking of Ninja Gaiden, Jade Empire or Sudeki?

Wild stab in the dark, but it's not one of the Crusader games, is it?

Hello there. My name is Adam, but that's not important.
What is important is finding out the name of the old (90s/2000s) PC strategy game that had a feathered mask on the front cover. It was quite aztec/mayan-like. And it was great!

Help please!

A Google image search shows that image to be from a game called Jazz Jackrabbit.

No. Thats for the NES. This one was for the SNES. It had a very japanese vibe to it...if i remember correctly.

SideWaysThinker:
It was a 2D puzzle game in which you ran some kind of hotel or apartment complex and you had to build rooms and move residents in, but in such a way that they didn't annoy other residents.

Grumps just uploaded a video, and upon watching it I immediately recalled your post. Its One Piece Mansion.

Hi, trying to find this Windows 95/98 educational game that was pre rendered graphics and the game itself had you working in lab with chemicals (working on simple stuff to advance stuff). Also, if I remember correctly the area you were in and the characters(like one was a talking dog) were made from scrap metal or trash metal. This has been bugging me for months since I have zero clue what the name was now, can anyone help me?
