I was watching a speedrun of Half Life and thought this would be a good discussion question.
What games do you remember playing lots of back in the day? Anything that gives nostalgia or you feel defines your past counts.
For me, Garry’s Mod was a huge part of my life- it’s what taught me programming before I went to college for it, and Half Life 2 in general was my first real foray into the FPS genre- I know way too much about it!
Lego star wars the complete saga and lego batman the videogame are two that give me a lot of nostalgia, I miss the days of just coming home, booting one of them up, and then playing them for hours with my sister! Can’t go wrong with a lego game
Talking about my teenage years then it would be Black Ops 2 and GTA V before heists where it was just about having fun with friends and messing around. From my childhood, the only game that pops into my head is Super Mario Sunshine even though I never completed it, and I watch people stream it and I still have clear memories of levels in the game.
Man, there are too many games I’m nostalgic about. I was born in the late 80s so for me, the SNES/GameBoy thru the N64/PS1/GameBoy Color era (we didn’t have Sega) was my childhood and I grew up on so many games. But I would have to say the games that are overall the most nostalgic for me are:
Super Mario 1/2/3/World/64
Aladdin (SNES version)
Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Ocarina of Time, and Wind Waker
Doom, Myst, Mario 64, Joe Montana Sportstalk Football, NBA Jam, Command and Conquer, Goldeneye 64, SimCity were the games that I spent the most time with growing up. Thanks for the blast of the past thread!
I am huge Half Life fan and to this day i play all games once a year, other than that Red Alert 2 and Yuris Revenge expnasion, Super Mario Land (for game boy) Super Mario Land 3 Wario land, Pokemon (first Gen). Warcraft 3 and Frozen Throne, C&C Generals, Counter Strike, Mortal Kombat 3.
Based on what I’m reading I’ve got a few years on many of you so you may need to Google some of these:
Mail Order Monsters
Raid Over Moscow
Their Finest Hour: The Battle of Britain
Secret Weapons of the Luftwaffe
X-wing/TIE Fighter / X-wing vs. TIE Fighter / X-wing Alliance
Any of the Micro Prose flight sims (F-15 Strike Eagle, F-19 Stealth Fighter, etc.)
