Re: Retro video games?

I love retro video games. In fact they're the only video games I play.

My favourites are Prince of Persia (original), Golden Axe and the LucasArts Adventure Game collection -- The Secret of Monkey Island etc.

I don't really play computer games much these days, preferring board games and tabletop war games, but if I do venture back into computers it's nearly always a 90s-era classic.

Re: Retro video games?

atari vcs i loved combat, adventure, jungle-hunt, pitfall and enduro.
atari 800 i love star raiders, archon, kik-start, boulderdash, schreckenstein, international karate, ninja
and the first game pc game i ever really played was omega
for flight games, wing commander, evasive action and us navy fighters were my faves.
I remember gleefully drowning people in populous 2 for many hours.
laser squad, and ufo were great for turn base.
command and conquer made real-time for me, syndicate was so very quick/ point click at the time I preferred cannon fodder.

Re: Retro video games?

I'm a fan of retro video games but also buy new games.

I mainly collect videogames for consoles, not pc games but this month I started play to the Maldita Castilla game. It's a free indie game for Windows with appearance retro.

My first videogame system was a master system with Hang on and Safari hunt inside and it still works :).

Just played some Golden Axe yesterday! Whenever I see my brother, we break out the old Genesis or SNES.

Re: Retro video games?

I know it's not "that" retro, but has anyone ever played "Little Fighter"?

I played this & the second one of this game to death .

Re: Retro video games?

A local trendy bar held a retro games night a couple of weeks ago in a large function room upstairs. My mate and his missus dragged me along and despite my initial disdain at the deep v/ trendy beard crowd I had an absolute blast. Found myself sat next to a bloke from Redcar playing Gauntlet on a custom built desktop arcade machine with a tasty slice pizza on the side and an ice cold coke in the my hand. I looked around in delight confident in the knowledge that twelve year old me would be very happy with this aspect of adult life

Re: Retro video games?

If anyone is still into Retro video games, I highly recommend this one, which, although not an actual retro game, looks and feels like one:

VOLGARR THE VIKING

It also has a kind of WHFB2E Lustrian theme: a Norse warrior with magical weapons fighting lizardmen in the jungle.
