    “Now you are playing with power!” do you remember that??

    I had been playing Donkey Kong and I could not wait to get my hands on the new game. The strange and wonderful world of Super Mario caught my attention immediately. Games such as Contra let me take the role of an armed military commando as either Bill or Lance (in my mind personified as Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger) and machine-gun my way through hordes of enemies.

    MechWarrior 2 and Screamer 2. One of my very first games. Still my favorites, awesome graphics, incredible sound and music, outstanding gameplay.

    When I was a child no one had computers. We played baseball in the street and shot at home-made targets with slingshots.
    We built model cities and then created our own disaster movies by burning them out in the alleyway.
    In the winter we ganged up and threw snowballs at cars, busses or anything that moved.
    Our parents still loved us even though the cops were around more than they liked. :)

    Sorry, I don't have any pictures.

    I agree looks amazing considering It was some time ago..

    Just want to add,that this is a nice little thread,so keep those classics coming guys..I've also played quite few of the titles mentioned here..I really liked Contra and when I first played Duke Nukem in that time I didnt have a computer yet,I first experienced the game at my friends house and I remember that after he couldnt get rid of me I used to go there often just to play the game :D

    Classic memories for me. First game I played was Super Mario Bros on NES. Then I moved up to Doom, Duke Nukem, but I have to say the one that stands out for me is.......

    Didn't have a PC until 96 (Spectrum with an amazing 128KB of HDD which was cleared whenever i shut it down) and, before that, i played mainly 2 games in arcades: Pinball Action and Street Fighter II

    From the Spectrum, my favorite was definitely Chuckie Egg.

    Was much better @ the arcade games then the Spectrum one, though.

    - On Pinball Action, i played a game for 4 hours (the same game using 50 escudos) and had to leave because i had school and my break time was only 4 hours :twitch:. Made myself 34 credits and couldn't use a single one: how rotten is that? :banghead:

    - On Street Fighter II, i only played with Ken and i had a move combo that, against the 1st opponent only (preferably someone large, like Zangief: didn't work on Chun Li, for example), i'd win in 5 seconds: didn't work on other opponents because they would still be standing, barely, and i couldn't always pull it off. It was fun against Bison, when he tried that rolling move on me and i'd do the upper cut on him :D

    - On Chuckie Egg, ... i don't recall ... :p

    EDIT ... again ...

    Also remember Screamer II for the PC: Had a very hard time finishing a particular race in 1st with my Pentium @ 100 MHz but, when i switched to a Celeron @ 300 MHz, in the very 1st time i re-tried that particular track, i ended 1st with over 12 seconds ahead of 2nd and was like WTF :wtf:
