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.

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

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:
