Ha! Yes! Road Blasters was fun. It was Spy Hunter with balls and an over-the-shoulder view.

Remember Hard Drivin'? It was infuriatingly . . . hard.

Never played Adventure Quest. Was it on the Spectrum too?

Probably, it was a text adventure. Or 'Interactive Fiction' as the pretentious seem to be calling it these days.

I'm shocked to see no Monkey Islands or Day of the Tentacle on here. Any fans?

I was, until I noticed that the word testicle sounded suspiciously like tentacle...

Oh, and the worst game I have ever played (not 32-bit) was Hotel Mario. I mean, what the hell?

Aha! Here's the problem! Too many toasters! You know what they say: all toasters toast toast!

I loved them, but when the first two games were out, I could barely understand english. So it was a lot of guessing now and then.
Must say Monkey island 3 was awesome.

Sam 'n Max was a funny game as well, but once more, the language barrier.

This thread features DOTT, Sam and Max, Grim Fandango, Full Throttle, Monkey Island and more. Half the kids posting on here were probably swimming around in a testicle with millions of their friends when games like Monkey Island came out.

I've been playing classic games on the Xbox Live Arcade on the 360, its been so long since i've played Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, CONTRA, DOOM, or any other number of games that dont even run on the PC anymore brought back to me for about 5$ a pop, and some new ones that are too much fun to ignore, Aegis Wing, Geometry Wars, and Assault Heroes.

If you wanna play old games on your PC, just get a DOS environment emulator like Dosbox. Really easy to set up, and works fine under XP. (Probably not Vista though!)
