    heh well I can't wait if so, Shadowrun was just an amazing game to me with the seemingly realistic future sense, always a fantasy to see a FPS style one with todays graphics and gameplay

    It's more commonly defined as a console role playing game, according to my knowledge. Especially since there have been more adventure and RPGs on the computer than on consoles.

    well, i guess it's from the older days for me. As they were called CRPGs on my old 8-bit computers 20 years ago :)

    No, actually, the definition is more commonly Computer RPG, mainly because consoles are computers as well.

    I'm really gonna date myself here. But when I was 8 or so, my father bought a table-top version of Missle Command. Yes table-top, do people even know what those are now? Played that fucking thing until the rollers wore out.

    Oh and many fond memories of Intellivision, the controllers with the inserts specific to each game, the dial/knob thing instead of a joy stick, some great games - Tron, SNAFU, Sea Battle, etc.

    Bard's Tale on the PC.

    I still remember arcade games like Punch-out and Dragon's Lair being way ahead of their times (of course I'm talking early 80s here).

    I was at a classic game expo about 2 months ago, they had a cocktail (table-top) version of Joust (with two seats for two-player even) running on free play *and* in pristine condtion.

    It was for sale, but it was like a couple thousand of dollars (at least), being a collector's item and all.

    Holy shit, I'll have to ask my father what he did with ours. Same thing, it had the controls on either side, but rollers, not joysicks.

    The Joust thing was unique as the there are two separate place to put chairs, side-by-side (which was a requirement being the nature of two-player Joust). There were other games that required the side-by-side controllers in the arcades, but I am not sure if cocktail versions of the other games were ever made.

    Aladdin on the Super Nintendo. Played it as a kid and haven't seen it since. That said, it was awesome.

    There were a few, but I really loved Wizball on my C64. The world where the game felt magical and even a bit scary in its weirdness, it was inspiring to the young me and my cousing with whom I played it. It wasn't the best of games, but it's probably one I'll never forget even when I'll probably never get to play it again like I did.



    Other similiar cases for C64 were Maniac Mansion, Rambo 3, Wasteland and Giana Sisters.
