Douk:
Also this game with a circle fellow (literally a red circle) with shades doing things.

That would be Cool Spot.

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.

1.) Dune? They weren't different races though so maybe not.
2.) Twisted Metal? Twisted Metal:Black was the one with the get off death row storyline from what I recall, but the series has been around since the early PS1 era.

No
for the second one the convicts were always in their respective pod/cars lots of weapon upgrades as you drive around and it was PC

Sounds like Carmageddon.

madbird-valiant:
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.

That would most likely be The Incredible Machine or any of it's variants (I'd have to know how good the graphics where first to tell) I grew up playing that, Stoneage and Supaplex all of which I still have fun playing

Right now I can't think of the games I have forgotten, but that may be as I found a few old games to distract me for a while this last week :P

xxygizx:

lapan:
nope, it was sideview, like in platformers or castlevania

See how many times I can get this wrong- you know what I mean?

Shops + Nintendo Entertainment System + Side View + Fantasy = FAXANADU?
I don't think this game had much in the way of dragons, but I'm running out of ideas, man. Can you throw me any more bones?

YES. Thats the game. Thanks for your help :)

I'm having a Nostalgasm right now...

Douk:
Can anyone tell me the name of this one...

You play as a star with legs and if I remember correctly his hands were floating limbs so he could reach quite far. It was on Sega Genesis, ahh the memories. Also this game with a circle fellow (literally a red circle) with shades doing things.

Plus this (either n64 or SNES don't remember) game about a bear or something, it reminded me of the honeynut cereal bear but it probably wasn't. If it was for N64 I remember it having an unusually large cartridge, so it was probably for SNES.

That game you're thinking of is Ristar, the genesis for what later became sonic the hedgehog.

Andaxay:
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.

Was it Gauntlet Legends?

The two games you're after are Ristar, and Cool Spot (he's a bottlecap by the way).

Damn you, Ninja'd.

I remember this one game for the PC fondly, you were some kids in Egypt and had to solve puzzles to find special treasures. Or something like that. I just remember being in Egypt, Ancient Egypt I think, and solving puzzles. If anyone remembers the name of the game, or one they think it might be you should totally tell me :P

Cartoon graphics?
If that's the case, it's most likely CARMEN SANDIEGO'S GREAT CHASE THROUGH TIME.
Otherwise I have no clue.


I've got a game I can't remember... one of the primary reasons it is so hard to remember is because it's Japanese...
At one point Official PlayStation Magazines were giving out PlayStation 2 demo discs that had un-translated demos of import titles on them (probably to see if the games could garner an interest).
The game in question was an extremely strange fishing game. Players would literally be hovering over a city where they would cast their line out into the water. A mini-map would appear to show you what's around your hook, if I remember correctly. Once a fish was hooked it would hover on level with you, where you had to pull it in somehow, but I've forgotten by this point.
The two kinds of "fish" I remember hooking were these weird anthropomorphic soda cans (red and brown in variety) and a gigantic rocket powered robot shark. (Needless to say, I never reeled in the latter)
The game used cell shaded graphics if that's a help.

Anyone recognize it?

That's probably it! Haha, I wonder if i could get it to work on my computer .. ?

Daedalus1942:
It sounds very vaguely like a game called Threads of fate but I am most likely incorrect.

Mmm, that's not it, but I might check it out anyway, it looks alright (if it's still possible to even get hold of it, harharhar). I'm almost positive it wasn't a JRPG, it looked and felt a lot more western. Google has been absolutely useless with my searches of "girl dressed in green" and "caves", haha.

JUMBO PALACE:

Was it Gauntlet Legends?

Shoot, that looks very similar, but I remember seeing it a few years before that particular one was released. Cheers for the suggestion, though, it's definitely close (and kind of looks familiar, too, I wonder if I've come across Gauntlet Legends without realising it).

It was a sidescroller. Though it was inside a house. The main characters had pointy heads and.. I think they wore some kind of detective outfit. On the screen you could see two floors of the house. I can't remember what the main objective of the game was though.

game on a pc, involved an interface covered with buttons, and a small screen in the top left where all the gameplay was going on. A sort of adventure game where the heroine was on the island of "really evil guy". All i remember was that [j] started a conveyor belt which threw some enemies into a pool of lava. Good thing about games those days, NO QTE's!

Yes! I remember now! Thanks for that

theres a game i played around 2000, basically u were a wizard i think, and u went around picking up items to use elsewhere in order to progress through the game, the bloke that u were had orange hair and just wore a blue robe. It was a pc game, point and click and i think the point of it was to get something back for a king. It had alot of stupid stuff in it like cinemas and marlyn monroe even thought the time setting was supposed to be medieval. can anyone help

It sounds very similar to Trine... but that's a more recent game than 2000.
Actually, I think I know the game you're thinking of. Did it have portals and was it released in like the 70's? Around about the same time as crystal caves. You collected potions for points, yeah? Crap. I remember that game, but I can't for the life of me remember the damn name, Damn you!

I remember the name of all the games I..... remember....

I had this, but I recently found the name. I played the demo on the ps2, and now I got the full game just for the heck of it. It was called Battle Engine Aquila. It's great, but the silly story would not have been necessary.

There was an adventure/rpg game on the playstation(at least I think it was the playstation).
It was fantasy, the usual young boy on a quest malarkey.
Side view, and when you ran out of the screen, the view would jump to the next area as opposed to just scrolling along with your char. Turn based battles.

I also seem to remember one part about having to break down a tree so that you could cross a river.

Any help would be appreciated!

I remember playing a muppet adventure game on the psx anyone remember what it was called?

I also used to play a western RPG a lot it's you know your standard medieval rpg with the mana potions and health potions and the mana and health fountains
A good inventory system like you could see the slots to which you aplied your armor and weapons

Edit : Also there was a soccer/football kinda game with weapons and robots
or it was just an arena fighter I'm not sure I remember something with that and football

And a musicstudio thingy?
Also for psx
(Don't mind me being terrible in remembering those

EDIT: Nuts. Ninja's by Daedalus. Well I still want to know if this was the game.

ok so first thanks for starting such a topic .. i registered an account just for this thread.
i got three games that i can't remember their names (some serious memory issues!)

1) the first game i used to play on PC like 12 years ago or so (probably a DOS game) the setup is simple, a shoot'em up game with zombies where you choose between a male or a female character at the beginning then you shoot the zombies and rescue people.

2) the second one is on PC too but i think its older than the first .. you're a DUDE (probably blonde) and you're in the desert (probably the wild west) the view is something like a birdeye's view but its closer (you can move all over the map) .. lots of weapons (machine guns, rocket launchers .. ) oh and i remember that one thing where you go to an oasis like water-place to heal or something.

3) this one i used to play on PC too but i think its been ported from (PS1 maybe?) .. its a side-scrolling/platformer game where you control a lemming like creature who attacks foes with his hat (i think you learn more moves later for this hat thing)

p.s. im really desperate to find these games so anyhelp would be much appreciated, oh and please forgive my sucky english

I have one that is driving me mad!

My dad had this game for the original PLaystation. It was a RPG and you were a drunken wizard (dressed in Orange I believe) trying to get in better with the wizarding school you attended. So they send you on a quest to kill the dragon that has been looming over the castle spire most of the game. You are solving puzzles and collecting items in the process.

All the characters seem to have british accents and the game is actually pretty funny. But for the life of me I can't remember the darn name.

Also, when you wait for awhile without playing, the wizard guy puts his head right up to the TV and knocks on it and says "Hellllllloooooooo"!

Can anyone help me out?

Thnx.

Sorry M_Mniny. Don't have any ideas for you. But I did want to say your English is fine. Don't know what you're talking about.

And I agree. Thanks for starting this topic! Hopefully we can get some answers.

I remember an old N64 game a long time ago where you had these futuristic motorcycles. Now, you didn't just race. You had guns. You always had a default autocannon type weapon, which fired a basic blaster round, and then there were various missiles and such. Three weapons I remember were the yellow rocket, which was direct fire only and had zero lock on and went in a straight line through the air. The red rocket was more of a guided missile that would lock on to any visible target and it would fly at it without following the track, so it could crash into hills in the track and such. The final one was a purple missile which would follow the course without fail and hit the nearest person ahead.

The game mode I remember playing was something called "shoot 'em up," which basically had you going around a track shooting at these weird disc-looking things at the edge of your line of sight. You could see them blow up, but they would always keep coming back in greater numbers, and you could never catch them.

Oh I've got it. It is "Discworld". An Adventure Game based on Monty Python! Lol! Great game. Now if I could only find a copy.

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

Not really an old game, but I can't for the life of me remember the name. It was some sim/RTS where you gathered resources and built a settlement in North America from scratch. I don't think it was Dawn of Discovery because I don't think it had a forced viewpoint.

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!

If you still don't know the name of the game go Google Armagetron. Its exactly like you describe except its probably not the game you played.

Either GLTron or Armegatron Advanced.

No, it was based on the novels of Discworld.

EDIT: Woops, forgot about my previous post.

Back in the mid - late 90's when I was young I played a top down RPG on PC anyway you started outside a castle and then go into the castle. I don't remeber if I couldn't get out of the castle or if it was just a demo limited to the castle.
