I bloody love this thread. I can practically feel the excitement and happiness people get from rediscovering those lost games :)

Maybe ill be as lucky :).

Old 3D adventure RPG.

Medieval fantasy setting.

You play a character that has been infected or otherwise contaminated, and as you progress (could be time bound) you gradually lose your human form to something more beastly. i remember it having 2 stages at least (might be 3 if complete human was possible). i believe the upside was that you were stronger, the downside was no npc would talk to you and hence you couldnt continue the story.
There was a way to reverse to a less beastly state, but u had to drink water that was blessed? holy? at the cost of a chunk of your healthbar.
It had some basic swordplay in it, and i believe different weapons could be used.
There was also a tavern where you could play a form of reversi.

considering the sparseness of my info, google doesnt get me anywhere, and the lists of games i found stretch decades.
I played it on PC, ps1 comparable graphics... mightve been around the same time as FX fighter so 1995 ish.

would be such a blast if someone could shed some light on this :)

Sounds like King's Quest VII: The Princeless Bride.

I'm trying to find a 2D bullet dodging spaceship game i played long ago.

The menu was the moon or the earth with some kind of tower below.
What i remember is close to the end is a giant spaceship with some turrents that we must destroy to get the part to inflict damage on the ship. It was a long battle and kinda hard.
In the end was a boss and the background is a city with clouds.
Anyone know what game is this ?

Hey guys - I'm trying to find a couple games I used to play as a little kid. The computer was a MAC I think from the late 80s or possibly really early 90s. Everything on the computer was black and white, simple graphics, no internet.

The first game was where you were a little helicopter and you were hovering above a horse and carriage with hay in the back of it and a little stick figure driver. You had to drop your man out of the helicopter into the hay, and the carriage went faster and faster with each level passed. You could also drop the helicopter man on the driver of the carriage and kill them, something my 6-year-old self had quite a lot of fun doing.

The second game I don't remember as well, but it was a really simple space game. I think you played a ship or a laser or something and you had to shoot at incoming aliens. There were crystals I think that gave you points. I didn't play this one as much I think, it wasn't as easy for me I dunno. It had music with it too, but I don't remember what it sounded like. Super vague, really sorry, but do your best? I can try to remember more maybe.

Thanks!

Hey all! I am trying to figure out an RPG I played on PC about 10yrs ago, although it's probably an older game, I would guess from the early 90's. It's set in medieval germany, you make characters, and there are a ton of abilities to put scores into I remember one is Artifice which had to do with like making fires. Combat was rts with a pause and commands, graphics were maybe 5 years beyond TSR pool of radiance. It was open world you could travel around with random events at places. End game was a cult opened up a portal to hell. I think the time was all measured canonical hours like Matins and Vespers. I remember making a guy who could throw potions, um.. looting flamberge's off of corpses. And the currency was maybe gold florences or something. Plz help this game was challeging and fun.

This sounds just like Darklands.

Hello, thank you for taking the time to read, I am grateful for you help and for this forum. There is this PC strategy game I played, most likely between 2000 and 2007 that looked like Age of Wonders. I had to kill ladybug larvae and there were wizards and I could buy people, they had swords, arrows, etc. I told my kids stories about it and they would love to play this game, we would all be so grateful if you could make this possible and touch their lives. Thank you)))

KingArmorKing:
trying to find an old, probably 80s, racing game
in the game you can play as four different vehicles, however i can only remember dune buggy and pickup truck
you are always on a dirt track and can use oil slicks and landmines to hinder the other players, however since they stay on the track, you can hit them as well
you can also use nitrous oxide to make yourself go faster
you are able to change the gravity when you go up a hill/ramp to land farther away
driving me INSANE not being able to remember what it is (no pun intended)

Maybe Moonshine Racers?

Autoduel?
Bump n jump?
Crashing race?
Death race?
Deathtrack?
Rally-X?
Roadblasters?
I have no more ideas, hope it's one of these.

Right
Been looking for days, old rts game, had space battles which were from the side (as in ships moved forward back up down) but also had land battles, there was four factions, grey cybernetic style humanoids, red muscular big things (i remember them being very militant style, weird green trader things and i dont remember the other, land battles gave you a unit that unfolded/transformed into the main base. There was also neutral things on maps you could kill like dinosaurs etc. 3-d modeling if I remember right. Lots of rocks and pillars you could destroy for more space, think the land battles had sea units aswell, not sure about air troops.
On the land battles I think the grey ones primary unit was a walker style troop, the green traders were small buggycar things.
Any help would be very very very appreciated.

I've had a song stuck in my head for twenty long years. It's an opening song of an old console game (NES or PS1, if I -had- to take guesses it would be the latter) and I played it in the 90s somewhere.

It is a fantasy RPG. No 3D graphics, not a sidescroller, kind of like those games RPGMaker does? The beginning animation (not animated the same way as the gameplay) had awesome music that has stuck to my head. It features all the characters, I think, but the most prominent feature is that there is a guy climbing on top of a mountain, and his all friends are waiting for him there. There is also some girl who blinds/otherwise immobilizes a large purple monster.

I don't remember much about the actual gameplay. The protagonist was a girl, and I think the surroundings were some sort of a school where you could talk to students and teachers and stuff. The girl had two objects: a crystal which would shine light when you took it out, and a clock which would (sometimes) turn back time.

Is anyone getting any nostalgy vibes for this?

I'm going to guess either Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny, or Vampire: The Masquerade: Redemption.

Hi guys, for like 8 years ago i'd played a game, but i only remember a bit of it.

You are a fish that's going through a kind of puzzle adventure.
I also remember there was a squid boss in the game and a level you are going for multiple times, where you must swim away from a shark. I can't can't remember anything about it more.

But if any of you guys could use those small details to find the games title, it could nicely

Is it one of the Freddi Fish games by Humongous Entertainment

I have a very difficult one, it's been haunting me for over 13-14 years.
It's an old PC game. From the early 90's-00'.

From what I remember about the game it was a Semi Live Action Point and Click Adventure game. It may have had Live-Action sequences and/or the environment was real. I believe in the beginning or near it I was in a very small house. Possibly a cabin type, but the outside was like desert if anything. Inside the house it had a computer. Behind the computer was a window as well, you could see the outside. I remember if I used the computer the Dial-Up modem noise would occur. After that dial up stopped I remember a man appearing before me in the window. I believe he actually poofs out of nowhere He said a few things, but I don't remember. He may have been a live actor. It also seems like I was in the middle of nowhere or a desert looking place.

The memories of the game remind me a lot of Gabriel Knight 2, that is the graphic style. I know it's not the game. It also had a very Myst like feel to it. I've been searching years for this damn game and I hope someone here may know this.

Nope it wasn't that game, i also forgot say it was also a 3d and maze game

This is not from my memory, it's from a friend's.

A PS1 game, shooter (not FPS, though), characters are a big muscular black guy and a little white girl with pink hair, in space, shooting aliens with "really cool looking guns"

ahhaha, that's all my friend remembers. Not a platformer/side-scoller game, believed to be a top-view shooter.

That's Wild Arms 1 for PS1 ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96ORXHRszG4&t=1m43s )

(It's on PSN if you want to play it again!)

I have this game in mind that's been bugging me for the longest time. I used to play it at my parents' friends' mom's house (I know, it's complicated). I remember playing Maximum Carnage and another dolphin game that sucked ass, but this one game that we played all night every time we went there, I can't remember.

You played as either Dracula, Frankenstein, or a werewolf(not sure about the werewolf) and it was a high speed side scrolling action fighting game. You would be running through the levels(Co-Op if you wanted) as miniature Dracula or Frankenstein in like this huge bedroom type place, grinding down staircases, jumping on desks and stuff. I'm pretty sure it was on the Sega Genesis.

I can't remember much else but hopefully this helps one of you.

So this game I cant remember the name of was played on the PC. You start out in a type of tree house
, someone dies and then a mouth forms within the tree and it talks to you. after that it doesn't talk again you have to walk around the world its like a forest environment. I remember collecting rain drops and gems! Its like an adventure game, your player is a male and that's all I can remember!! please help, been driving me crazy

It doesn't fit much of your description except the console you believe it to have been on and the monsters you remember in it, although they seem to be bosses featured in the game and are not playable, but I came up with Night Slashers http://www.giantbomb.com/night-slashers/3030-32646/

Beyond that, I am not sure what it could be as I looked at what was supposed to be a comprehensive listing of things Frankenstein has been featured in beyond films, and none of the video game appearances matched what you said.

And the dolphin game that sucked ass was likely one of the Ecco games :P

Yeah, no that isn't it. Thanks for trying though. And yes, Ecco sucks ass.

Guess #2 : Monster in My Pocket
http://www.giantbomb.com/monster-in-my-pocket/3030-14307/images/

I played a game that was either on the xbox or playstation2, the main character was a guy who turns into a demon? when he fights, he starts out in a church, and he meets an old gypsy guy who makes dresses for his granddaugher, each dress she wears gives her a different attack power? I think that when the guy dies, or over does it, or something he ends up in another realm, where he has a conversation with another being that idk, I think there were doors where he could choose another path??????? It was out about the same time as the Bards Tale. Thank You :)

HOLY FREAKING CRAP YES!!!! Thanks man.

Bump-
Ok, I don't remember much of this game but I used to play it around '95-'00 (I think...). It was a 2d scroller and i remember playing as a character that reminds me of robocop, you were all silver armor and you only had a slit in the helmet to see out and you started out with a very basic weapon that shot small yellow projectiles that only flew so far and you could find upgrades for it that made them travel farther do more damage etc. i think one of the upgrades was a blue shockwave looking thing and another was just a regular red bullet. The levels were all silver toned and you could hit these red mounds that had a letter (R?) on them and when you did a voice would call out "Aieee!!" (echo twice) "Over Here!!" (echo twice). The voice is the only thing that I am absolutely sure of.

It may have come in a pack with some other games as I remember having something like that. It may have come with God of Thunder (1993) and I remember some other game that was a lot like Doom with more open areas. How long until I can just upload the images from my brain to show you guys what I am talking about haha.

Any help is appreciated thanks!

Not sure but part of this sounds like the Shadow Hearts series (PS2) ( http://www.giantbomb.com/shadow-hearts-covenant/3030-4001/images/ )

I'm going to guess either Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny, or Vampire: The Masquerade: Redemption.

Neither, No first person view used, camera was always on you, like resident evil 1/2/3 or final fantasy 7/8/9, nor vampire masquerade, fixed camera, as mentioned above.
thx for the quick reply though :)

Great! Thank You! I thought I sounded crazy, but it definitely is Shadow Hearts, thank you so much, Doomgriever!

thanks for your help this seems like its the game i was looking for

Hi! So I played this RPG PS2 (or PS1?) game where basically it's about some guy who makes a contract with a cursed sword or something? And basically after a while of gaming you get absolutely massacred by this enemy and as you're dying the sword offers to give you like ultimate power or something and you can choose to say yes or no. Pretty terrible description but thanks for any help!

Hi, I'm looking for a game I played in the 2000's, it was a 2D game that consists in eating an certain area to complete the level, you are a spider that only moves on the borders of the area and when you eat some area you are vulnerable to strange space insects or something like that, you have to eat the biggest area possible, pls help me :(

That's a Qix clone (there are many!).

Such as Spider Web ( http://cdn.soft112.com/Games-and-Entertainment/Action/Screenshots/49819-spider-web.png )

hi, I just lately remembered this game I liked yeeeaaars ago. I don't remember the console anymore, though? maybe ps2 or pc or?? but I remember the Intro of the game! so you see a beautifully animated city and everything's lit up brightly and everything is in yellow and orange colours I think it's something like christmas there? and you see people on the street, happy couples and stuff and then you see a girl, but only her legs and she's walking to the end of this rly high building and idk I think either she jumps immediately after she reaches it or first balances on a thick wire to the middle before she jumps, but this guy (who's later the main character) catches and saves her- and he holds her hand and they fall together and you see this scene where you both fall and I think you have to answer some questions or something like that??

if I think about it more maybe I remember more stuff of the actual plot--

ah, that's it!
seems like I forgot half of the intro haha, thanks for the help! ( :

I remember an xbox game that was on a demo cd my dad had. It was basically you as a character and you start off in a village that looks like a camp for kids. You are one of those kids. Your mission is to go up to the tree house and meet with the other kids and what you think is your camp councilor. The man was a boot camp instructor. So to get back on topic. What happens is you go into his mind. Where you have to get through his boot camp. You face challenges from hopping across big holes in the ground to claiming up the side of hills. I would really like to know the name of this game. I'm sorry if there isn't enough information on the game. Please help!!:)
