    What a bunch of wimps It's all about rogue, nethack, and moria baby. Also some Sierra games, as long as they are more than 10 years old.
    I go to encounter for the millionth time the reality of experience and to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.

    Windows XP consists of 32 bit extensions and a graphical shell for a 16 bit patch to an 8 bit operating system originally coded for a 4 bit microprocessor, written by a 2 bit company, that can't stand 1 bit of competition.

    Grand Theft Auto 3
    Morrowind
    Grand Turismo 1,2,3
    Quake 3 Arena
    Medal of Honour (Although it's on the linear side)
    Street Fighter Alpha 3
    Unreal Tournament

    The best console games:

    1) Street Fighter 2 Turbo Edition, Snes, OMG that game ROCKED.

    2) Tekken 2, Playstation, the only other beatem-up to come close to SF2.

    3) Final Fantasy 7, Playstation, AMAZING storyline.

    4) Sonic the Hedgehog, Megadrive, Sonic > Mario.

    5) Revenge of Shinobi, Megadrive, loved it, took me forever to work out how to get through the maze at the end.

    The best PC games:

    1) Ultima Online, was best during 99/01, Trammel sucks.

    2) Quake 3, there is nothing quite like playing 15 player Q3 over the university network (Study? What the hell is that?)

    3) Unreal Tournament, personally i prefer Q3 for its multi-player, but unreal tourney rocks too.

    4) Command & Conquer, the the original was great, (though i also loved Dune 2, which was along similar lines)

    5) X-Wing, first slight-sim type game i ever bought was great fun.

    Manic miner
    Atic atac
    sabrewulf...ok any by Ultimate-Play The Game..lol


    Jet pac--not jet set willy though.

    Lords of midnight/valhalla..


    RPG's were never ever ever as good as Lords of Midnight on the speccy 48k.

    Remember Avalon---nice game, and elite......wow

    Ummm in the last 2 yrs (IMO) the best and most playable PC game is.......Tiberian sun comm and conquer.......I have played it to DEATH...like worn the CD's out...Online is great!


    I do like counter strike blah blah.

    Max payne was groundbreaking, liked that, along with MOHAA-that also was great.


    Liked cossacks and its add on CD.

    Did some1 say chuckie egg? DAMN i forgot that one.

    And if you played OCEAN's flight sim on the speccy, it was kinda like FS2000....LMFAO..

    No offence to MS as Flight Sim 2002 really is good....No I am not a geek, it really is good.

    Oh as for consoles, we all got together to MARIO KART ourselves to death in 2-4 player modes.....only on SNES!!!!!! FANTASTIC


    oh, and I like PIKMIN on CUBE, kinda like LEMMINGS (another classic)
    Such is life.

    It should; I'm not sure why it doesn't. I know that when I link to a non-index.html page it pops up a bunch of ads. But when I link to index.html (like I did/am) it shouldn't pop up any ads at all. Then once you leave the page it will ask if you want to set your homepage to portal.hostultra.com (my web service provider...it's free and unlimited bandwidth so i don't complain). If you click on it once then it should stop from there. So I take it you never did get to play the game? (...or did you and that's why said you the game looks cool?) Either way thanks for visiting the site and possibly trying the game.

    Pilot wings it was yes, although it was SNES game not NES...it was one of the launch games..and it was poo
    I know for sure that Pilot Wings was one of the launch games for the 64, but I don't know about the SNES (?).

    lets see here...

    Warlords 2 - a great game...very fun and addictive...i think it inspired the next game on my list, but i am not sure...
    Heroes of Might and Magic 3 - incredibly addictive and fun...by the way I love tower...tower combined with castle is awesome...has anybody ever been able to find a frozen cliffs and get azure dragons?
    Need for Speed III - i love this game...running from the cops is incredibly fun in this game...
    Grand Theft Auto 1 - a classic...thats all you can say...ive never played 2, and i have played a little of 3...but mostly i have just played the original GTA...and its a great game...
    Mechwarrior 1/2/3/4 and MechCommander 1/2 - althought none of these were really revolutionary games, I am a big Battletech fan and all of these are very fun.
    Civilization 1/2 - both are INCREDIBLY addictive. I have played these for hours on end. I have not played 3...but I must get it very soon...i am yearning for that game. This is a must have for everybody.
    Empire Earth - not a revolutionary game...but very fun...i like being able to go through every age in time.
    Starcraft - very good game. a classic. even after so many years tons of people still play it and it is still incredibly popular. a very well done RTS game.
    Age of Empires - yet another great RTS. personally I like it better than Starcraft, but overall it seems as if Starcraft was more revolutionary than AoE.
    Doom (All episodes of both Doom I and Doom II) - what can i say? Its the best FPS ever. That simple.
    Wolfenstein 3D - awesome game...very revolutionary...fun to play, great FPS.
    Lemmings - this is one fun game that you can just pass the time away with...i love it...especially the Can-Can music...
    Liero - fun!!!!!!!!
    Final Fantasy 6 (3 in USA) - all Final Fantasy games are good, but this one is by far the best one I have ever played. I havent played 7, 8, 9, or 10. I also like FF5 quite a lot. It is fun.
    Legend of Zelda - awesome game...what more can I say. very revoluationary adventure game...and i am very happy that they brought the original music back in Majora's Mask, which they took out for Ocarina of Time.
    Super Mario Brothers 1/2/3 - 1 and 3 are the best, but 2 is also fun. After SMB 3, they get boring.
    Duck Hunt and Track & Field - the games that came packaged with SMB 1...very fun...
    Diablo - a very fun adventure/rpg game...i love it...if only it had more than just one adventure in the first version...for example, Doom has episodes, Starcraft has episodes, Diablo needs episodes too.

    okay thats all i can think of off of the top of my head..
