Sir_Tuttles:
I have a few, though 2 may be the same game.

1.
A 3D PC FPS game

I recall playing it on an old Windows 95-98 machine. While I can't say for sure,
it was probably around 2000-2003 when I played it, but I recall it looking like something
akin to Quake.

Some telling things I remember...

Spawn with a pistol

Spawning inside a small outdoor enclosure ( fenced in? ) with an entrance into
a building nearby. The outside area was a bit drab and gray. Entering through the door,
there was a fairly well-lit hall ( yellow/white lighting? ) with what I recall having RED carpet, and a guard or two closed in and shot at you.

Shooting the guards in specific body parts caused said parts to come off, but they didn't
seem to phased by it and would continue to shoot at you. There was definitely blood.

The game had a fairly gritty feeling to it. The closest thing I can find is soldier of fortune... but it just doesn't seem like the right fit. The enemies/guards seemed less human in my memory. Almost like mindless zombie guards, haha

That sounds a bit like Blood2 - The Chosen.

Hi,

I can't remember the name of a game that was a sci-fi rpg with a top down view similiar to fallout 1 and 2 but it wasn't turn based, at the start of the game you had to choose between 3 different mercenaries, a woman an old soldier and a young guy that had like camo pants in game, you started from a hub where you could buy equipment such as weapons like plasma rifles shotguns armors medkits and ammo , you had an inventory system that you also had to manage, you could also spend money in something that look'd like a medical vat with water running through it to increase the stats of your character.
the first mission had you going in to a subterranean base infested with aliens that looked like yellowish worms with arms and the last enemy was a human with one of those aliens attach'd to him like a parasite, that enemy took a lot of bullets to down and that's basically all I can remember.
The game also had 2 mechs that you could use, one coloured in grey that had mechanical pincers with which you could attack in melee the aliens, and the other was green with 2 shotguns.
That's all I can remember of the game since I only watched my brother play it and he can't remember the name too.

Hey, I posted this before but no luck.

Looking for a PC racing game that I got from a Game Magazine demo-disc early 2000s. The graphics were pretty good 3D, and the camera angle was top down. The map was mostly sand, and some bridges, jumps. I believe you could pick up power ups and shoot other cars etc. The main menu theme was techno, and I remember a logo of some kind that looked like this. Also, the main menu music was a pretty chill techno beat.

Hey,

I remember this game from my childhood but cant find it. It was a topdown strategy game in real time. It was set in the medieval times with knights, bishops, vampires, nosferatu and so on. You control the units and capture spawnpoints like a piano or a pentagramm that automatically spawns units over time. The units fight with each other by shooting balls or crosses or the like, but always shooting if i remember correctly. So this is all i can remember maybe you know the title.

Posting to ask about a vertical space shoot-em up game from the 90's/early 2000's.

When I was a kid there was this game that game pre-installed on my PC where you start off with a silver/red space ship after you press start and this huge gate thing closes and opens.
You could add a second player but they'd play with a silver/blue ship with a different kind of special ammo.
One kind of special ammo was this bomb with a huge circular area of effect, and the other one was, I think, like scattered grenades.

There are asteroids of different sizes along the first level that you can shoot and destroy, plus some guns and other ships.
It was vertical-scrolling, not horizontal. First level had a dark or black background.

There were 3 kinds of normal ammo, I think, each with a different colour. One was red, one was blue, and I can't remember the colour of the third. To upgrade your ammo, you had to pick up ammo of the same colour. If you picked a different colour, it went back to level one of that most recent colour.

so i'm trying to remember this old game i played on PC when i was like 6. I remember that the main character was a black magic user named Mage, and his best friend was named lance and was a swordsman. And it was a roleplaying game, but i cant remember for the life of me what it was called.

Looking for old web browser topdown shooter game:

**Platform(s):**
PC, (Flash/Web Browser I think)

**Estimated year of release:**
Late 90s, Probably Early 2000s

**Graphics/art style:**
- 2D or 2.5D, More Top-Down than Isometric.
- I think the camera was zoomed out quite a bit, with player locked in center screen.
- Dark and gritty.
- Only map I can remember was dark, outdoors, with modern/futuristic military structures.

**Genre:**
- Multiplayer PVP, Top-Down Shooter
- Modern/Futuristic Soldier Combat
- Free-to-Play most likely

**Notable gameplay mechanics:**
- 6v6, maybe 10v10, Deathmatch/Base Capture
- I remember both teams looked similar but with team color accents i think
- Cant remember if there were classes or not, every unit had just a basic rifle and grenades I think.

**Other details:**
Closest visual similarities I could find:

I remember playing this free online game, probably around 8 years ago, it really felt like the story of the mist. I don't remember if it was first person or what gender you were, but this mist was coming so you went into a store and I think it was point and click? I remember something was up with the tv at one point (with snow), and you went into the basement later, and (SPOILER) I remember a flashback of your little kid being ran over with a car because she tried to pick up a ball. At that point I got so scared and sad I stopped playing (I was like 12), but I never forgot about that game.

I'm 99% sure that's Vorago, by Godlimations. =)

Alright, there is a 3D game I played back in 2008 or 2009. I only remember one level. I think you begin it going down a monorail. It's in a snowy place with trees. There are guard towers. If the guards spots you alarms go off and foot soldiers attack. You make your way past the towers to a bunker/stairwell thing. I think there is water at the bottom of the stairwell. There are monsters down there, I think they have an electrical thingy, but Idk if it's aesthetic. I really don't remember much of it, but it gives me doom 3 (2004) vibes

this thread is a god save. Okay so there's this one game for the PS1 I used to play as a kid all the time, well, whenever my mom would let me. I don't remember if it was like mature or what, but I know this was before I could read long stories because it had this helluva intro, and we didn't have a memory card, and I would ask my mom to read it to me because it sounded really cool. Eventually she told me she wouldn't read it to me anymore. Now all I really remember is that it had something to do with mechs. It may have been Gundam game, but I don't think it was. It had an RPG kind of essence to it, like old RPGs like Final Fantasy prior to 6. If I remember correctly it was pixelated like that too. And you start off in some kind of village and after what felt like hours of gameplay to 5-6 year old me, you're in the middle of this clearing that looks pretty Sandy and pass out or something and then there's a mech. I'm sorry if this description sucks. I was so young that I didn't pay attention to it. Here are the key points:
1. Pixel-based mech RPG
2. PS1
3. Huge intro solely composed of words. I don't believe there were any pictures or cutscenes to it.
Please help!

"The continent of Ignas, in the Northern Hemisphere of our world. On this, the largest continent, a war has been raging between two countries for hundreds of years. In the north of the continent lies the Kislev Empire, in the south lies the desert kingdom of Aveh. The war has gone on for so long that the people have forgotten the cause, knowing only the pointless circle of hostility and tragedy.

"The chronic war obsession was soon to encounter a devastating change. This was due to the 'Ethos'; an institution that preserves our world's culture, repairing tools and weapons excavated from the ruins of an ancient civilization. At once both countries excavated these ruins, and had the 'Ethos' repair the discoveries, in order to increase their military power.

"The various weapons excavated from these ruins greatly changed the form of warfare. The outcome of the battles between the two countries was no longer determined by man-to-man combat, but by 'Gears' - giant humanoid fighting machines - that were obtained from deep within the ruins.

"Eventually, after continuous swings in the state of the war, Kislev gained the upper hand. The major factor behind this lay in the enormous difference in the amount of resources buried within their ruins. But suddenly a mysterious military force appeared in the continent of Ignas. Called 'Gebler', this force decided to make contact with Aveh.

"With the assistance of this Gebler military force, Aveh was able to recover from being hopelessly outnumbered to being back on an even standing with Kislev. Then, taking further advantage of its newly gained momentum, Aveh started to capture one territory after another from Kislev, showing no indication of slowing down in their invasion campaign."

...If that sounds familiar, you're looking for Xenogears. =)

Yes that's it! Thank you so much! This thread is great :)

*playing* Oh my god why did I play that as a kid? Lol

Hey.
There was a game in my childhood, but I don't know how old the game actually is. The point is, your character resembled a troll and you had to jump and hit the platforms above your head in order to kill bees, snakes and raccoons from what I can remember. And you had to avoid getting hit by tires falling from the sky. And at the end of each level there was this laugh..
Anyone?

Hey, i am losing my mind trying to remember the name of a side-scrolling shooter i played in an arcade sometime between 1980 and 1990. it was a silver robot hovering above the floor, left to right shooting all sorts of enemies and avoid changing terrain. It wasn't in space, more on a planet, a lot of green surfaces below. It sported some pretty epic music in some sort of silver armor...not much to go on, but it was mega-addictive...any help would be appreciated.

Hello all, I have been trying to remember/ find a game that I used to play on ps1. It is a robot fighting game like mech fighting kinda, anyway you start out with a junker and you get better parts as you play. In your fights with other robots any parts you knock off of your opponent you can then use on your own robot. It was a pretty good game and miss playing it. If anyone could help me out with this that would be awesome thanks.

Hello everyone, i'm trying to find a game that i used to play back in 90s', it is a fighting game in PC,

if anyone can recall it,i'll be really appreciated, thanks!

There are two games I use to play and I cannot remember

One was an old castle game. You could go to different land when you advanced enough. You would every turn I think, set your builders/army/mages(Not sure if there were mages) and basically would select continue everyday and it would randomly determine whether you got bonuses or if evil things from the outside would attack your castle.

The other one is a game where you start off in a castle. It is from a top down perspective and you can basically interact with anything. You can kill the jester right in front of the king. you could pick up knives, food, and all sorts of things However, it is like a series with like over 5 series to it and I remember you must play the previous game in order to unlocked areas into the next game? I remember traveling into this cave i think by giant ants and it says I couldn't access it til I completed a previous game.

Hi there, hope you can help me.

I've been searching for this game for years now and neither my mom or me can remember its name. I was playing it around 2000-2001 on a win95/DOS pc. The game was on DOS.

It was a puzzle game in which you could choose the univers, there was a castle, a pyramid, I think something similar to a maya temple and you had to dodge the obstacles to get through the scene. I remember threadmills, switches, balls of fire and you had to collect puzzle pieces. They were not something you could collect easily, you had something like 5 in a "world". The castle univers was the one with many threadmills.

The graphics were better than Rick Dangerous, with considerably good details.

Any ideas about what game I'm looking for?

i remember playing it on my pc in 2007, there was a prison hall where the game begins and then you can need to fight two skeletons, the game was kinda medieval, only swords, shields and stuff.

wanna know the name

Hello, everyone! This game was an old game I played it back in 2007 or 2008. The game I was wondering about was a game that went on in space where you played as a blue janitor guy which was supposed to clean up the mess in the certain area like plumbing the toilet, washing the mirror and cleaning it and vacuum sweeping. After you finished the area you went through your spaceship and went to another planet to be a janitor again. Oh, also you had a jetpack if that helps :)

Hello everybody
I have played this one game as a kid and it's killing me ainxe I can't find it.
It was a 2D side scroller shooter with gritty colors, sci fi from before 2000. It was pixalated and no doubt a very old game.
What I remember specifically is that you had to get keys to unlock weapons that were held in some sort of tanks(storage) as well as one boss that looked like a giant eye that shot lazers or something.
Please help since it is killing me

The spycraft: The Great Game was the spy game you were thinking about and was really the first interactive game with you cellphones and emails. I was neat. sadly it shut down.

Pikachuusb:

The 1st game is a spy/detective(??) game that came out maybe early 90s(?) you could sign up for emails or phone calls from the company. If I'm not mistaken the box was large like a board game? :P

The game was called Spycraft: The Great Game. The game was ahead of its time. It sent messages to your cellphones and emails. Really was way ahead of its time and sadly for sales never game back. Made before people got into the technological ends of things..

I don't have much to go by, but all that I can remember is that this was an educational game, around the early/late 2000's, you can move to go do different activities, and I know one of them was making smoothies or some blended beverage by following a recipe, and I believe some ingredients MAY have been a little goofy? I'm trying to remember so I can possibly get it, I used to rent it from my library all the time and having fun with it. If I can think of more details, i'll add it to this post. I just remember making random combinations in it. I know there are other activities you can do in no order, once I get the right picture, i'll know right away.

Hello everybody! I hope you can help me with this. I am posting it again with more details.

I am looking for a pc game i played in 1995 or 1996, it was in japanese or an oriental language and it was an strategy game with battles. It was manga, with big headed little characters. Like Fantasy General style of game. You had some troops or units that when they leveled up you could choose the type of troop, for example when a wizard leveled up you could choose if he was still a wizard or he became a cleric. I thought the name of the game was "Toko" but i cant find any information about it so i guess that was not the name. I did not understand the language but could play by trying every button. The game was the size of a diskette.

Please, help! i am desperate :). By the way, it is not Battle Brothers, Farland or Flame Dragon 2.

Thank you!

Hi there! A tough one to the forum, let's see if someone remembers.

This game is either a late NES or an early SNES. I think it's a NES one.

It's very simlar to Faxanadu, even I have in my mind that it has a simmilar name, but after watching faxanadu in youtube, it's not that one. Even I remember the first few minutes having a brownish/orangish color all over.

I remember it being very similar and difficult to play.

Thanks!

Hello!
There was a game like 10 years ago about this farm where you could paint and interact with the plants and animals
Thank you!

I take it it's not one of the Castlevanias? If that's the case, how about Legacy of the Wizard? Looks like there are some brownish/orangish dungeon walls and such around:

hi everyone.

there was a pc game, I used to play with my cousin about 22 years ago or maybe even earlier. it was really simple. you could control an origami airplane in a house with only two keys : forward and backward. you had to solve the riddles to go to the next room. hairdryers could keep you up.

Guys I am looking for a Japanese looking game. The game was around 2000s maybe, 3d game . The game have stages and bosses and u controlling a character only. The character capable of summon monster fight by ur side. You can switch the monster u summon from sword which is the basic one then later on getting to summon monster which use gun. After that I think is the monster which have claw at both hand which jump on top of enemy and drill them to death. Moreover, strength type monster which can carry big enemy and slam them to ground, and I think the most useless one which is the bomb monster which explode will used it life point. Lastly, the strongest one which look like a dragon. The story start off by u having the strongest monsters which is the dragon looking monster but later on being turn into fragment scatter around the game world and you collect it during ur journey. The fragment is always enclosed behind door which requires you to use the specific monster to destroyed door to get the fragment. When you finished collect the fragment the dragon is born as a baby dragon inside a egg bouncing in the air growing become stronger and stronger. I forgot about the story because I probably dun care and at that time my English is pretty bad but I think is about saving some one I think a girl.

Edit: you can kick the bomb monster to shoot at the enemy. Japanese looking game. You can also upgrade each type of your monster. The monster were unlockable after u finish some stages but only the dragon one u need to collect the fragment to unlock.

Hello, i am looking for a game that is 2D, it is a split-screen shooter for older pc with win 95, i do not know how else to specify this, it is so long since me and my cousin played this game, so if anyone knew, id be grateful
