I remember a really old one it was a hunted mansion point and click adventure from way back. All I remember was you had to input the moves so it was like a point and click/text adventure.

Not sure if it was fun or not but don't lose any sleep over that........

The Game I'm looking for I think I might have only played a few times. All I remember is that I think you start off in a closet in a museum or something like that. Then you walk out and cut the grill of a closed well with some bolt cutters then climb down a ladder into some labyrinth-like sewers. After walking around for a while you would get to a gate that you would have to use a multi-tool on to open an alarm box then but gum in it in order to prevent the alarm from going off when you get through the gate. I pretty sure you were going to steal some crown or other treasure. Pretty sure its was a point-and-click but I'm not sure. Also, on the cover I think there was a guy going down a zip-line.

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.

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

I don't think thats the game you are looking for. That was definitely "The ClueFinders 4th Grade Adventures: Puzzle of the Pyramid". That game was the bet as a kid. It was part of a series. I played them when they first came out.

sadly, i'm too much of a nerd not to know names of games i played. That only happens to songs and films, which is logical when you think of it, you watch a film but just miss the opening by a minute

I used to play a game on either Sega or SNES. You play as a little bouncy ball with a face and it is a side scrolling platformer. I have tried to look it up so many times and it always ends in failure!!!

There is this one game that been bugging me for years and I trying to figure out what it was called. It was a Asian game for the SNES and it was like the game R-Type but it was top point of view (you seeing the top part of the ship not from the side like R-Type). Anyway I know that it's was an asian game cos it had like anime intro showing a pilot (can't remember what the pilot look like other then it was a guy) and a female partner (I think she was like the energy source or something and she was wearing like a robe and look divine).
I remember that the first level was in a green forest like level and another level was in outer space were the boss had this werid face. I rememember one of the power up (like R-Type) was like the ship spawn several green beans that shoot at the same time as the ship like they are its children (they become smaller when get hit). Lastly I remember the game over screen with the pilot and the girl in chibi form stranded in a fire camp cos their ship had crash to the ground.

i remember this one game it was post-apocalyptic i think, it started out with this girl standing on a car, maybe a bus, then you had to go into an abandoned mansion and clear out some cyborg guys, once you did the mansion imploded and you had to escape. after that there was a level or map that you had to kill the cyborgs to destroy the command center in an empty subway. if you die you reform at a check point where it shows the layers of your body coming together. it was a few years ago, and it was an awesome game

I remember a game a long time ago.

It was an RPG and I only remember the beginning, which was epic.

You start out simply entering a palace made of glass it seems. You start out as a party of 4, and are apparently heavily leveled up, well equipped, and everything. You wander through, running into random battles and the like, until you get to a set of bosses. You can soundly beat these bosses, but after the battle, they form this dark light around you.

You and your compatriots make your own lights to battle it, and win, but everyone is injured. You walk about and check on everyone, but the party is separated by a collapsing glass bridge. So, half of your party takes off, and you and your party member escape on foot from the palace/castle.

It then fast forwards, and the main character and hero from the beginning is found trying to escape his girlfriend, no longer the hero they were before.

The game is for SNES, I think(not sure at all here), and it is a great game filled with all sorts of stuff, and I wish I could remember what it was called so I could find it.

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.

Sounds a lot to me like 'Extreme-G'. Was pretty cool I guess.

The Spectator:
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.

wasnt bonanza bros by any chance? you played a pair of criminals robbing houses, and you had to avoid the occupants

I don't know what game that is but it sounds like it would be interesting to play!

This is a game I played for the Atari 800 but was probably available to other computers of the time. It's an adventure game on several disks with graphics for the scenes and you typed in commands for where to go and what to pick up.

At the beginning you break into a museum to get some scrolls and then run to not get caught. I think the point of the game was to find the rest of the scrolls and get some fantastic treasure. I know that you are attacked by a snake and have to try and dodge a rockslide at some point.

You also end up in some kind of labyrinth and before you enter there are some masks? who are telling you something and all I can remember is "Bowls of silver, jade and gold/Lead the way safe passage hold."

Does anyone have ANY idea what the name of this game is?

Thank you so very much for reminding me. You have enhanced my reminiscing ability.

I recall an old Playstation game in which you played as an anthropomorphic tiger who had some sort of Chi powers. But in the beginning, you are attacked by this Dragon and are on a revenge quest. You go around and meet/battle other Zodiac animals. The name has escaped me for fifteen years.

I used to play this one PC game where I'd have to dig up dinosaur bones and the characters were a lizard, a dingo and a kangaroo.

This sounds a little like a game I used to play called "Super Putty".
You were a wad of putty with eyes, shaped like a ball. You could bounce
Or stretch between platforms.

Does this look like it at all?

I literally just spent way too long to try and figure out a way to post on this cuz there's this one game I loved but I have to google all the time...

SNES RPG about a boy and his dog in a fantasy world that takes place in different eras.

Oh right, Secret of Evermore.

It's one of those games that I just dug at the time and it opened my ears up as well as my eyes. Making audio important in a video game title is always an impressive feat. Chiptune or full orchestra.

there was a crazy ass racing game i used to play on a pc (but it may have been an emulator) i remember the graphics were roughly playstation caliber and there were warps and you raced through underwater tunnels and man, it was awesome. anyone have a clue?

There was this sorta dungeon game for one of the old Ataris. It's where you start on a map, at a house but at first there are three lights for windows, which actually represent your lives. You pick sections of the map, I think they were color coded black, red, and blue. Black had no items but alot of arrows for you to collect in the dungeon, red held an axe, and blue I forget. But you had to collect all the items to unlock a door(I never got that far) and kill a dragon(once again, never this far.) Only thing I remember of the enemies was there were like brain looking things that'll fly through the walls and kill you, but you couldn't kill them.

Sorry if this is too obscure in the massive world of games, but I'm trying to remember a flash game.

It was a multiplayer game, a sidescroller. You played as a square-ish smiley face, on a black or grey background, I'm pretty sure. You could go side to side and jump, and as well, create blocks of various types (standard, elevator, etc.) and colors at will. So people would make huge pieces of art out of these blocks, or make these massive chain reactions that take your avatar all around the giant map.

Does anybody know what I'm talking about?

It was a PS2 game. It was a downhill bike riding game with colorful powerups.

Were there a large selection of cars with two people in the cars at all times? If so, it might be Outrunners, or outrun 2019.

As for my game, You were a police officer that drives a car for a good part of the game, then your cop car becomes a motorcycle, and eventually a jet. The game had to my memory a mission based system, and I THINK a type of free roam (Don't quote me on that one) It was a Playstation 1 title I think... or a genesis title. It was NOT spychaser, it was like some dystopian future game. Uhhh.... I can't remember much else. Someone please... PLEASE help! It's been haunting me forever trying to figure this out.

Rush 2049?

That was a pretty crazy racing game, if my memory serves me correctly.

Downhill Domination.

One of my first ever PS2 games, and it still remains as one of my favorites. Plus, you could unlock a character from "War of the Monsters."

That, is kickass.

I remember...this...

You play as this woman..who has a dragon. It's a 3D game. Your health is a red orb on the left and the dragon is a golden orb on the right. Balista's would shoot at you and your dragon would get hurt....I remember it maybe..raining...then I remember you off your dragon and in a cave...looking for...something....

thats all I can remember... Dx

Thanks. Now I can die happy. Nice montage too.

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).

FYI, Gauntlet Legends was originally an arcade game for quite a few years before it ever came to N64, you may have seen it then. It was an amazing game and I loved both of them :)

I'm glad I've never had this problem. I started playing games recently enough that I can remember my earliest gaming days. Now it's just a matter of remembering whether I got my PSX first or my GBC...

Panzer Dragoon Orta? That's what it sounds like.

More golden colorred dragon and you actually get off your dragon.

and more Medievil.

I got it for you right here: "Tai Fu: the Wrath of the Tiger". It took a bit of searching, but I remember renting this game as well. The gameplay reminded a small bit of Crash Bandicoot, but maybe that was due to my age and the color schemes used in the game.

Still, it was kickass.

Are you thinking of Spy vs Spy? If so, that was an awesome game, and 2-player. You were in an apartment which you had to set traps to try to kill the other spy. One was wearing white, one was wearing black.

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

1. I'm 100% sure you are thinking of Zombies Ate My Neighbors, if not well I'm sorry :)

2 & 3. Both of these sound very very familiar, but I can't quite picture the games.

This Tank game for the N64, that had a fixed 3rd person view, missions, and incredibly cheesy story. It was so fun though. :3

BattleTanx? Based upon its page on the Wiki, and the story, I'd say that this is the one you are looking for. Death of 99.9% of females on the planet? That sounds just crazy enough to be your game!

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

I mean no disrespect to the females of the Escapist, as I was merely pointing out the audacity of the story that this game provides...

I have a few games which I have never been able to figure out their names, but I can only think of one right now.

I played this game when I was 3 or 4 years old, so realize this may be innacurate :) . I played it on an old school computer (it was no later than 1991 I think) and I believe the game had 5-10 floppy disks. I have always wanted to say it is called Dragon's Lair, but every internet search I've used has always turned up games that never look similar.

Anyways, I remember you start off in shack or small farm type building, and outside is your pet pig (I wish I could remember his name! lol) I don't remember how you move around the world, but I believe it's an isometric view which is stationary. I think I remember a large river south east of where your farm is and I remember eventually entering a cave, which I believe had a dragon in it, and after entering you needed to climb a rope or get a rope to proceed. That's all I can remember, someone help! This has been bothering me for 20 years :)

One of the other games I wish I could remember more about was more recent than NES but definitely older than SNES (I remember most SNES games I've played, I have a pretty good memory) All I know is it was a JRPG. I know that isn't helpful, but it wasn't any Final Fantasy, Earthbound, Chrono Trigger, or Phantasy Star. It wasn't Shining Force (and it wasn't a tactical rpg), but this thread just made me think of that game and how amazing it was...
