Old Skool! Empty Old Skool!

Post by ADMIN on Thu 24 Feb 2011, 3:12 pm


Thought there should be a thread dedicated to the old school games, the likes of the Spectrum, Commodore 64, Atari 2600, Amiga etc.
So if you like your games 8 bit and on cassettes that take 30 minutes to load and then crash anyway then here’s the place!

The only rule is that the game has to be 10+ years old.

I’ll set the ball rolling with a few:

Populous

Regarded as one of the first God sims and it was a classic. Peter Molyneux (of Fable fame) and Bullfrog created this game that had me hooked for months on end.

Speedball 2: Brutal Deluxe

Bitmap Brothers finest hour IMO, it rendered me useless for many years on football games as I went out to cripple the opposition.

Sensible Soccer

And speaking of football games, you can take your ultra realistic FIFAs and PRO EVOs, give me overhead goals from 40 yards anyday.

Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

Just a beautiful beautiful game, infuriating as hell but beautiful

Lords of Chaos

Control a wizard, go kill stuff, loved it!

Baldurs Gate

Big inspiration for the likes of World of Warcraft, I smite you with +4 sword!

the original "Striker" for the Commodore Amiga was the best football game for years! Also was good the SNES till ISS Deluxe was introduced.

Best man management game for me was Soccer Double 2 for C64. Remember putting the cassette in before school then getting home to find it had just finished loading up Very Happy

midnight resistance commodore 64 was a good shootem up as well

Buggy Boy was a good racing game i think it was on the com64.

The Setlers on the Amiga was a great statagy game.

I always loved the point and click adventure games aswell, like the monkey island series,beneth a steel sky,and Simon the Sorcerer games.
