Also, I'd like to submit my own game.
It was a PS2 game; you play as a stuffed animal. With a gun. It was an action platformer. I think there were multiple stuffed animals with guns to choose from, though I could be wrong. There were baby animals in the level that you could collect, but I'm not sure if they were the main objective or just a bonus. One of the levels was set inside a spaceship, and I have vague memories of other levels, I think there was a dam, a museum and an airport level.
Any ideas?

Fur Fighters by any chance?

That's the one. Ta.

i remember playing a game about being in a cop car and you driving through the city and then random cars would speed and try to escape. you had to chase them down and get them to pull over.

you could choose different cars too. like an suv, a traditional cop car, and a few others. there was traffic that you had to get through and dodge. i tried searching it on google for a while but couldnt find anything that looked familiar. i really wanna play it again. please help?

I had a demo of a PC RPG game, where you had to choose between warrior, mage or thief (original right?) but you had to choose what your character worshipped before you start (earth, fire, life, death, there were loads). If I remember correctly it was a top down/isometric view, but I can't remember very well so that could be wrong, all I remember for sure is the character worshipping bit. I've been searching for it but can't remember much else for the life of me, can anyone help?

I think it could be World's Scariest Police Chases.

OK, I just made an account so i could post in this thread in the hopes that someone here has a better memory than me. Back in my youth (at least 12 years ago) there was a game, in which you had to build different machines/devices (and im not talking about the incredible machine) you had to arrange the parts to build something like a nail clipper or scissors properly. doing so got you access to the next part where you would have to try and find the best parts for a vehicle you were building, like a slot car or an airplane. you had to escape from the "bad guys" when looking for parts and you always raced your vehicles against your rival. Anyone have any idea what im talking about

Sorry bout that.

I found my missing game by accident.

Sounds like Gizmos and Gadgets from The Learning Company's Super Solver series.

I need a help with a late 90's PC platform shooter. I only played a demo version. so there was only like 3 levels.
This game was a lot like abe's oddysee but your character wasn't alien but human. If I remember it right the character's you could choose between (there was 2 in the demo) were designed to look like actual living person's. I think they looked like 2 well known(the 90's)action film hero's. Don't remember which one's.
You'r enemies were robot's. The level's were always had a rocky/metallic design and each of them was in a different planet, moon etc. The aliens you saved were green and always say thanks and things like: Cute and such. Other thing I remember in some levels there was an alien hanged up on what seemed like a grill platform and if you shooted it catched fire and a sign lighted up nearby which said: Kebab is dead.
I really hope this information is enough to find it, because it's all I remember.

I also remember another game. It was an enterprise 64/128 game. It was a on casette like the other game's in the 80's and early 90's. It had two chapters, means two casettes. The loading of the casettes took ages.
It was a lot of like prince of persia but don't quite the same. The first chapter, had a dungeon design like the prince of persia games. You mainly fighted with bats and skeletons. Sometimes there were a skeleton who holded a glass on salver and you could either choose to drink the potion or kill the skeleton. If you choose to drink there were two possibilities: It was a health potion and you gained one health points or it was a poison and you lost one.
There were also traps which needed skill and dexterity to avoid. Like green poisoned floor: jumping skill and timing and spike traps and blade traps.
The second chapter was more like a palace of some sort and I remember ropes which hanged down from wall clocks and lots of bats or birds which you had to kill while jumping from rope to rope. Some of you might recall the game Rastan but I assure you it's not that. I already checked out Rastan and it wasn't even released on Enterprise 64/128.
I know it's a hard one, since the enterprise 64/128 computers were mostly owned by only hungarians, like me and austrians. But I would appreciate if someone take a shot. I really liked the game and I'm in a nostalgic mood. Already have the emulator :)

Me and my friend have been look for a game for about a month now that we we played as kids. It was a game we played on the Mac around the year 2002 (the game may of been older and made in the late 90's). The game involved a boy and a girl getting their dog (that my friend thinks was named Blue) back from kidnappers (some sort of organized crime group I believe). It was a point and click game with some puzzles in it. One part that I remember is that you need to find the password for an elevator and I'm pretty sure the password had something to do with a frog. Me and my friend have both separately gone through the list of videogames for the Mac on wikipedia three times and still not been able to find it. Does anyone remember the name of the game or have any information that could help me find the game? It has been driving me crazy!

Here is a reddit post I made looking for the game:
http://www.reddit.com/r/gaming/comments/uv6go/boy_and_girl_get_dog_kidnapped_anyone_remember/

I have 2 games. Both are quite vague as its been a really long time since I've played them.

The first: You were a doctor(I think at least) and you crash landed on a planet. You're ship was broken so you went out to find parts for it. It was an adventure based game with puzzle elements in it. You would walk around, solve puzzles, if you failed you would get hurt and you couldn't die. Platform was Windows, probably mid 90's.

The second:You were a little wizard and you did quests and stuff and you could upgrade your wand. This one is really vague I know. Again it was Windows, mid 90's probably.

Both ran on a Windows 98 OS. Thank you.

i played a really good game for pc before 7-8 years or so .It started with a little boy his village was on fire his parents died than you needed to go to a windmill you needed to chose good or evil if evil you grow horns ewery time you did something bad .you could upgrade skills and the logo of the game was an eye like a dragons. It was so cool but i can't remember it

RedBird:
I remember a really old game, you play as a velociraptor with jetpacks and lasers...
It was either on pc or N64.
Or I made it up.
I'm really not sure.

Oh My God... the planet was like... infested with other dinos, and seemed to have a red tinge to it? i remember a game like that! i played it all the time... but i cant remember the name!

EDIT : OHHH!!! Maybe Nanosaur??

Sounds to me like Fable 1.

I wanna find a video game that`s pretty old, actually I`m not even sure what system its for... anyway..

All I remember is the opening cutscene, something happened in the game that involved the earth shattering into many pieces, and our hero lives on one of the pieces. As a sage/wizard/some magical guy comes into the cutscene view, he uses some yellow energy attack to sever part of the floating island they're on, which allows the part to be light enough to keep floating.

The hero jumps onto the declining area to save a birds nest (I believe) and then jumps onto the main part of the island.

That's really all I remember about the game to be honest, maybe something about a teacup shaped planet or something but I'm not sure if thats relevant... anyways thanks. :)

Hey, I'm looking for an old PC game from the mid-90's. It was an asteroids-style game with 2d graphics VERY similar to the styling of the pinball game that comes packaged with windows. Basically, it WAS asteroids, except that the ships could be upgraded with new weapons and shields and I remember if you went into the game folder, you could customize your stuff so that you could literally just spin and hold the fire button down and clear entire levels in seconds. I THINK I remember something about different colored stats in the lower-left corner, but I'm not 100% sure. I remember alien ships, floating asteroids, and the ship itself being somewhat reminiscent of the ship from Galaga. Can anyone help me out here?

Astrofire?

avloomco:
There's this old 1990's PC game that I cannot remember the name of no matter how hard I try... it was a turn based strategy kind of game where you would have a character which walked around in a hedge maze, and would randomly encounter monsters (the whole game was in 2d) sort of like pokemon. The monsters would have attacks and you could basically catch these monsters and keep them as your own to battle other monsters. You could train them and level them up, and then battle the "boss" characters in each region, I guess (the hedge maze was just one region). And there was a map of which places you could go to as well. The monsters were really strangely shaped, I remember one of them was like a carrot.
I remember playing this as a kid and I would LOVE to know what it was called so I can reminisce and enjoy the nostalgia. Please help!

Azure dreams for Ps1 perhaps? sweet game!

NAILED IT, Thanks

Could anyone please help me
I have been thinking of this game ever since i played it but never could find it
It was a isometric rpg from what i remember, it was turn based, that took place in either the future or another planet, cause it was futuristic but dusty and such not shiny future, and the party consisted of a boy and a girl if i remember correctly and the main character had a robot dog -but not a normal dog, a bigger on and it looked similar to the one from half life 2- that had a laser atk that could charge up for 3 turn i think and hit strike more powerfully.

This is all that i remember and i know that it isn't much. but i'm keeping my hopes up.

Thank you for your time.

Early parts of Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator fit this description fairly well.

.....
I would donate you a kidney if i could
YES!! this is the game i'm looking for. god.... so many years wondering if i'll ever find it again.

You friend should get a medal. Thank you again

can you help me? im searching the name of this game for years, but my description is vague.

I am not sure though if it is a ps1 game or something because I only played it in arcade.
I remember that it is a fighting game, you can choose 1 player or 2 players (boy and girl). And the name of the opponents are zodiac signs and birthstones(ex. Virgo, Cancer, Leo, Turquoise). I also remember that Virgo looks like a girl in a gold armor, Leo is a bird, and Turquoise is a man with sword. Basically it is a fighting game. Thanks :)

Okay! When I was just a kid I use to play one game on psx, the one which I just can't remember the name. The game was like: It was an adventure game, where you had to collect coins. You had one caracter who had the red hat and cloak i think and yellow hair. It was 2d. so you could use your hat for attack. Your enemies where some kind of wierd people who were colecting shrooms or something and a blind man who was stealing your coins if he catch you. The guy who was collecting shrooms was walking like orcs on Lord of the rings (jumping funny). Anyway, I can't remeber the name of the game because I always called it "Crazies" even thought that wasn't the real name. Maybe it will help you that in 1st level one shroom-man was flying in balloon a throwing boombs and the the floor would break i peaces. In some other level you are chased by a big ball made of rock and you had to run away from it. I don't know if I said enough but thats all i can remember so it would be cool if you could help me. Thank you in advance!!!

If you know which game is this contact me on facebook: http://www.facebook.com/karloblazek7
Just send me the message...

I looked it up, but I don't think that's it. The graphics on Astrofire look too cartoony compared to what I remember. I remember the ship being pretty detailed, and the upgrades only lasted for a while. I THINK you got them by shooting the powerups on the level...

The zodiacs & gold armor immediately made me think of the Saint Seiya series (an anime series with some video game releases). However, your description doesn't fully match it. Perhaps a spinoff/ripoff?

Puneet Sharma:
I used to play a PC strategy game in the 2002-2005. the game was all about the three selected robots with armors and weapons and walkin through a big area like a forest and destroy all the machines and buildings, some of them were resouce buildings. the game looks like an age of empires not exactly. difference is for robots instead of humans. the color of those robots were red with a green bar on them showing their life. the same bars show on the enimiy robots and their buildings and base as well denoted their life.
Thanks.. :)

MechCommander?

It's on GOG. Keep your kidney. ;)

Hi guys. I stumbled upon this website while looking for a SNES game I can't remember the name of, hopefully you guys can help, here goes:

SNES game kind of like the Age of Empires games. You basically played God, you control a guy, I think he was dressed in blue, you start building you little civilization and doing battle with the other civilizations. If I recall correctly you can cause natural disasters, like floods on the other communities. I recall the noise the guy would make when he walked through the flooded land like a splish splash. There was no soundtrack just the sounds like walking through the water or fires and whatnot. You built your land a bit at a time too, it's hard to remember being that it was for SNES and I was like 10-11 yrs old. My brother brought it home w him from Uconn one day and I remember liking the game a lot. The things I'm sure of is that u are basically a god controlling your guy and building your land and civilization a bit at a time. After you are all built up, you go to war and take over the other lands. Hopefully one of you is an RPG junkie from the SNES days. Thank you in advance. If you answer my question you will have made my year!!! I've been trying to remember for so long.

I don't think it is Saint Seiya. How I wish I can remember the name of the game. I also remember that you will face Pearl and Onyx(they are like twins that are bald). The players can also use something like hadouken. Hahaha. I know it's pretty weird, but man I'm addicted to this game when I was a child :))

Name of old rts game with three factions?
I'm looking for a game probably released somewhere between 1996-2004
It's an RTS with three faction/races/sides/teams.

The different factions were;

Humans with tanks and infantry. Their colour were blue.
Alien/Native/Scorpion/Monster people (don't quite remember). But their colour were red.
Alien/Machines/Robot/Tech people, their colour were yellow.

It had some basebuilding, where you created your units.
I think units could rank up through combat experience and I'm fairly sure it was a 2D game.

It's not starcraft or any other well known rts.

(P.S This description fits http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20120303164635AAf4EpI)

Played a demo of it once. Please help ;D

EDIT: it's KKnD2:Crossfire!

Tiny116:
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.

Do you by any chance mean Death Rally http://www.ghanja.be/images/stories/death_rally.jpg

I remember a game where the PC was a boy with sunglasses and a backwards truckers hat.. I remember something related with bubbles.. i think you threw bubbles and pocket or something

Old game I played in the late 80's, early 90's on the Amiga.
You played as a knight and chose different scenarios, like fighting another knight, battling against lions or other creatures.

Sounds an awful lot like Populous to me.
