    Nice avatar. I heart Mr. Bungle.

    Also, the internet is not big enough for a list of my favorite childhood games. Let's just say I liked a lot of the good ones, and some of the bad ones too.

    Armored Warriors
    SD Gundam GX (liked it enough that I bought Super Famicom and the game on ebay for $300+ in late PS2 era [because emulation for it was broken due to some special chip it used])
    Dune 2
    Warcraft (used to go into friend's house to play when they were not at home)
    Command and Conquer

    Anything later I wouldn't have experienced during my childhood.

    I was in college when road rash was out :p.

    I am old enough to have played the og pong in the actual unit my aunts bf had it and got to borrow it and play it for a weekend.

    never got an atari it was too expensive for us so i had my hand held games which was not unusual at the time.

    think i got a c64 when i was in 6th grade, upgraded to a 128d when i was in 8th grade or early hs.

    of the sega years road rash would be up there with sonic, mortal combat, twisted metal, sega nhl games were epic.

    It seems quite many here have also console "background". I never had any consoles :/

    Which I guess has deeply impacted what games I liked, and still like.

    Hey, nice thread! :)

    LOL. Being a relatively 'old person', there were no video games when I was a child, but the nostalgia for me would be (in no particular order):

    Star Wars Dark Forces (First game I ever played)
    Project IGI
    Jedi Knight
    Baldur's Gate
    Shogun Total War
    Medieval Total War
    Doom (1 & 2)
    Wolfenstein 3D
    Duke Nukem 3D
    Unreal Tournament (The original)
    Morrowind
    Half-Life
    Clive Barker's Undying
    Battlefield 1942

    Probably quite a few more, but can't think of 'em right now. I'm off to a party.

    Happy New Year all.

    When I was a child (1963) I played "guns" with my friends in the neighborhood. We would get together in one kid's garage and divide into two groups, then go off in opposite directions and begin our attacks. Each side had a map of the local area that included great places to hide or set an ambush. There was also important information such as which yard or house had a mean dog to avoid. Today this would probably get all of us sent to some juvenille facility or shot by police due to the realism of our guns. I had a Bazooka that I brought to school for show-and-tell. Imagine that! Seems like a different world compared to today.
