    At my first school, we had a whole computer lab filled with C64's and disks for them. I wasted every grade 3 computer period playing games :D . I wonder to this day if Wasteland was in there somewhere...

    Oh god some of these take me way back...

    Sonic...first game i ever played.
    Last battle. This is by far the hardest game i've ever played in my life. I have yet to this day to finish it.
    Kickoff, i think it was called this. Great graphics.
    Road rage

    Resedent evil
    Syphon filter
    GTA, but only the first two.
    Fighting force
    GT 1 and 2

    Then i moved to PC
    Fallout series
    Soldier of fortune
    Medal of honour
    Metal gear solid.

    But all in all...the game that i enjoyed playing the most ever would have to be Fallout 1 folowed by resedent evil and the sonic series.

    I think these games were good, and I loved them when I was littler.

    Mortal Kombat series(Talk of the town. Pretty fun back then)

    HeXeN(Very good for it's time. Spent many rainy days with that one)

    DooM(No kidding.)

    HeXeN II(I just liked it. Spent many days on that damn Desert world)

    Killer Instinct(I don't know if it was innovative or ground-breaking, but it was fun)

    Super Metroid(Pretty good game, actually. Days were spent. I loved how the different weapons were merged together{like wave and ice blasts combined})

    and last, but definately not least(never least)

    Fallout. It was the first RPG I ever really got into, with it's depth and SPECIAL system. It blew me away, and it reminded me of Wasteland, which was my fave RPG before Fallout.
